Experience the same half-press for focus, full-press to shoot function as your dry-land photography with the AquaTech Elite II GH5 Underwater Camera Housing.

The Elite II's other controls are mechanical, providing easy access to important camera functions, and its ergonomic design and side grip afford optimal handling and comfort. The housing's polyurethane body has reinforced quick release clips and tactile controls made of stainless steel, aluminum, and high-strength plastics. All the aluminum parts have been anodized for resistance to corrosion and other wear and tear.
