DESCRIPTION


Aquatica is proud to announce their housing for the fabulous Canon 1DS mark III, with 21.1 mega pixels this camera/housing combination will push the boundaries of underwater photography to another level. Machined from solid aluminum, treated and anodized to military specification, then painted with a highly resistant powder coating, this addition to their already wide selection of housings will benefit from the same 300 ft. depth rating that set them apart from the competitors.

The 1DS Mk III housing has the same mounting bayonet and accessories as our existing housings, including our tack sharp Megadome and the Aqua View finder and therefore will be in a position to address every aspect of this demanding activity that is underwater photography.

The Canon 1Ds Mark IV is also a perfect fit for Aquatica's current housing for the Canon 1DS MKIII. No modifications are required and no function or access buttons are sacrificed when using the newer Canon body. Access to the video mode of the Mk IV model is not a problem.

From the beginning, Aquatica's design team wanted to give photographers complete access to as many controls as possible. Because of this foresight, easy access to the FEL button used to activate video capture was already in place as well as other important buttons such as exposure compensation, ISO and the illuminator button.

Reassignment of these functions through the DSLR's custom menu setting is not necessary.

KEY FEATURES
* Bayonet Port: Positive bayonet mounting leaves no doubt that your ports are secure in place and water tight. The bayonet system dome, macro ports and extension rings, offers the fastest access to lenses for rapid changing without having to remove the SLR from the housing. Allows use of lenses from a 15mm fisheye lens to a 180mm macro lens. Tele-converter port extensions are also available.

* Fingertip access to all camera menu controls include On-Off, Mode, bracket, Meter positioning, focus control and AE/AF lock as well as AF preferences. Access to all menu features include review, enlarge and delete, histogram and internal SLR preferences.

* Lens release lever for easy lens changing through the front port with camera installed.

* Built in remote control compatibility, no modification or special connectors to install.

* The most critical aspect of underwater SLR photography is the viewing system. The Aquatica 1DS Mk III uses a viewfinder that derives the biggest and the brightest image possible in full frame viewing to your eye. An accessory Aqua View Finder is also available giving the user unparallel viewing of the camera's viewfinder for sharp focusing and exact composition.

Specifications

* Depth rating: 300 feet/90 meters
* Precision machined from a single aluminum block. It is fully anodized to military specifications and coated with polyurethane powder paint and clear coat. All function labels are pad printing so they will not peel off or fade.
* Accurately balanced ergonomic design - all controls are within easy reach.
* Excellent underwater balance.
* Replaceable sacrificial anodes protect the housing from electrolysis.
