Capture detailed still images and stunning 4K UHD videos of parrot fish, moray eels, coral reefs, and more with Aquatica's A1DX Mk II Underwater Housing for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable upon request to 426'. This version of the housing also includes a pre-installed vacuum check system, which allows you to confirm watertight integrity before the dive. An Ikelite 5-pin manual strobe connector enables the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords. The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder.
The housing provides access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical push-button, knob/dial, and lever controls. It also features 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 A1DX Mk II ships without a required lens port, and various interchangeable ports are available to accommodate a wide array of lenses. For full compatibility, see the Port Chart.
