Capture memorable images of parrot fish, sharks, and coral at depths up to 328' with your Sony Alpha a7 II Mirrorless Digital Camera, thanks to this Sea & Sea MDX-a7 II Underwater Housing. Dual fiber-optic cable ports enable the connection of optional external strobes via cables. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from a machined aluminum alloy with a corrosion-resistant finish. It ships without a required lens port and accepts a system of interchangeable ports for various lenses. Additionally, the enclosure is equipped with a 0.5x optical viewfinder and is compatible with optional OVFs that have an increased magnification of 1.2x. A built-in leak sensor will alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal.
