Capture the world beneath the sea in detailed still photos and Full HD 1080p video with your Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR, thanks to the Aquatica A7D Mk II Underwater Housing. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426' for free upon request. This version of the housing also includes a pre-installed vacuum check system, which allows you to confirm watertight integrity before the dive. Dual optical strobe connectors enable the attachment of optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables. The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder.

The housing provides access to 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.

The A7D Mk II ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro, and zoom lenses. For full compatibility, see Type 2 Port Chart and Type 4 Port Chart.
