Capture the beauty and variety of sea life at depths up to 328' with your Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera, thanks to the MDX-70D Underwater Housing from Sea & Sea. This unit is compatible with the optional, internal YS Converter/C for connecting external strobes. It also accepts an optional 2-pin sync cord connector and has dual fiber-optic cable ports for the same purpose.
The convenient quick shoe makes it easy to install and remove the camera. Mechanical controls provide access to virtually all camera functions. With both hands on the ergonomic grips, you can easily reach both the main and sub-command dials, as well as video recording controls. Additionally, the rear buttons are angled for ease of use. The housing includes a 0.5x optical viewfinder and is also compatible with two optional OVFs offering 1.2x magnification.
Built for durability, the housing is precision machined from a solid block of anodized aluminum alloy for corrosion resistance. A supplied moisture alarm senses when a breach occurs in the housing's waterproof seal and notifies you immediately. The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts a system of interchangeable ports for a broad array of different lenses. For compatibility, see Port Chart.
