Clear, detailed photos and videos of coral, parrot fish, and other denizens of the sea are yours with Aquatica's A1Dcx Pro Underwater Housing for Canon EOS-1D C or 1D X DSLR cameras. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426' upon request.

The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the coated Aqua View Finder, also included, offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.

The housing provides access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical controls. It also has an ergonomic design with 2 grips that offer improved handling and attachment points for optional lighting arms. Built for durability, especially resistance to corrosion, the housing is constructed from anodized, machined aluminum and stainless steel.
