Mechanical controls, including push buttons, dials/knobs, and a lever, enable access to the following camera functions: shutter, video recording, live view, top dial, OK, directional controls for menu and settings, and info. This reduced control set gives you what you need while simplifying the setup and shooting process, which can be a benefit when capturing water sports.

Built for durability, the Water Sports Housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate that's yellow on the top, front, and sides, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and the camera. The enclosure ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable ports for a broad array of lenses. Additionally, an optional sync connector can be installed to allow for the attachment of an external strobe.
