Product description

You can capture brilliant photos and Full HD 1080p video of parrot fish, blue-ringed octopi, and coral reefs with your Canon EOS 70D DSLR Camera, thanks to Aquatica's A70D Underwater Housing. It has a depth rating of 295', which can be upgraded for free to 426'. The housing has dual fiber-optic connectors for the attachment of optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables.

A 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. Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions, and dual ergonomic grips afford optimal handling and comfort while offering attachment points for lighting arms. For convenience, vital functions can be accessed while keeping your hands on the grips.

Built for durability, the housing is made from aluminum and stainless steel alloys. The aluminum has been anodized to military specifications, making it extremely resistant to corrosion. The A70D ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro, and zoom lenses. For complete compatibility information, see the Port Chart.
    Waterproofing
    • Features a depth rating of 295', which can be upgraded upon request to 426'
    • Closure system is equipped with safety locks
    • All control shafts have double O-ring seals, while all push-buttons have quad-ring seals
    • Aquatica has developed a moisture alarm with an atmospheric pressure-sensitive circuit that will allow you to confirm that the housing is watertight before the dive
    • Once your camera is installed, simply push the start actuation button. The LED light will turn green for 2 seconds to confirm actuation. Once a solid vacuum is achieved, the LED will blink green again for 2 seconds
    • During the dive, the LED will flash green every few sec, indicating system integrity. If the vacuum starts to decrease, the LED will start to flash orange
    • If water is detected, the audible alarm, which is always activated and ready to go, will go off and the LED will also flash red
    • Advanced circuit compensates for changes in ambient and internal temperature to prevent incorrect readings
    Controls and Handling
    • Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions
    • Dual ergonomic grips afford optimal handling and comfort

    • Housing has been tested under the ice of the Arctic Polar cap and has withstood months of harsh winter conditions in Antarctica
