Aquatica A5Dsr Underwater Housing for Canon 5Ds, 5Dsr & 5D Mk III DSLR Cameras


Aquatica's Design team has refreshed the housing design for the 5D line of cameras with new improved operational ergonomics. This precision housing follows in the steps of a very time proven lineage of underwater camera housings for the constantly evolving 5D camera line up. Aquatica has been on top of the 5D program since they introduced the original one a decade ago, much like the 5D camera did, Aquatica's housing has evolved into a fine imaging tool that mirrors the constant evolution of technology and the input of highly respected professional image makers from around the world.

IKELITE TTL OPTION & EXPOSURE CONTROL
Now offering original internal TTL circuitry from Ikelite as an option, this 5Dsr housing edition brings creativity to a new level, strobe exposure control is right there, where it is supposed to be, you can now tweak your lighting exposure or even go fully manual right at your fingertips. Controlling the amount of light entering your camera is paramount to the success of any image maker, and the A5Dsr housing controls for aperture, shutter, ISO and strobes exposures are all a hands on the grips approach. Every one of these is positioned to be intuitive, eliminating confusion and making the housing a natural extension of the photographer.

THE CONSTRUCTION
The Canon 5Ds and 5Dsr cameras brings stunning and previously unheard of levels of resolution to the realms of DSLRs cameras, Aquatica's job is to provide you with the right tools for capturing your vision of the underwater world.

All Aquatica housings are constructed from the finest material available in the industry. They are carefully crafted from a selected alloy of aircraft grade aluminum and a premium grade of stainless steel, the housing shell is machined using the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines. After undergoing a series of quality control operations, the main body and its controls knobs will get protection by anodizing them to North American military specifications, furthermore, a coating of tough as nail powder coating is baked on at a high temperature. Corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes are standard equipment on all of Aquatica's housings. These extra levels of protection are apparent, as can be seen on some Aquatica housings that, even with over 1,500 dives on them, still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box.

The A5Dsr housing was designed to be as small and lightweight as it could be, nevertheless its lightness in weight should not be taken for a weakness. This housing still has the same standard 90m/300ft depth rating and can still be upgraded to 130m/425ft.

Aquatica housings are made for the hard working photographer in mind, one who truly understands reliability in the field. Being built in Canada means that every Aquatica housing is born and bred in one of the world most rugged diving environment. Bottom line, if it works in Aquatica's local conditions, it will work everywhere else!

SURVEYOR MONITORING SYSTEM
The Aquatica A5Dsr housing comes standard with a Surveyor monitoring sensor. This sensor acts as a moisture alarm and can with the addition of a vacuum extracting valve and pump, be used for constantly monitoring the sealing integrity of the housing, adding another level of safety and peace of mind.

THE ERGONOMICS
Given the immense impact its predecessors had on the underwater imaging, it was deemed absolutely important that this new housing be optimized so that all its controls would be easy to reach and operate smoothly. AF-ON & star button access is provided with a rotating collar that prevents ambient pressure from pushing it back toward the housing. Menus buttons are angled to provide an easier reach for your left hand. The 4xxxx gear system with a smaller housing pinion gear and larger lens gear results in smoother action while zooming in a video sequence. Knurled knobs and oversized controls translate into positive and easy operation no matter what the situation is.

A control extender arm for the ISO button is now a standard feature on the Aquatica A5Dsr Pro Housing. ISO is an important, and in Aquatica's opinion a vital feature, especially when shooting video, in normal circumstances this can be done by pushing on the ISO button located on the right hand top of the housing. This lever gives a quick and comfortable access to the ISO control of the camera.

Battery and card replacement are a simple affair with a camera tray that precisely positions the camera in the housing and easily disengage by a simple push on a tab. The zoom actuating pinion gear and the lens release lever pull out to allow the user to remove the camera from the back while still keeping a lens and zoom gear attached.

Handling the housing is via Aquatica's acclaimed molded grips, these have been the industry reference in comfort for the last 25 years. These lightweight yet sturdy grip handles are made of one piece and cannot come unglued, fall apart or corrode. Grips are provided with standard sized mounting holes ready to accept the most current strobes and their supporting arms. On top of the housing is an extra mounting point for attaching a focus/video light or other accessories, three additional standard sized mounting points are provided under for various brackets, support or tripods.

On the right is a view of the business end on the Aquatica A5Dsr, clearly showing the serious nature of this housing. The record button is located close to your thumb and not only is it oversized but with a bright red coating, it is visually easy to pin point. The Live View toggle is within easy reach and the SET button is also oversized. The multi controller pad is accessible. All push buttons are of high quality Type 304 stainless steel, the same used in the aerospace industry; these will not break or rust. Their smooth operation and position gives the photographer a very intuitive and normal feel to the housing.

CONNECTIVITY
The Aquatica A5Dsr housing offers a choice of connectors to take advantages of the current technology advancement made in underwater strobes. They are user serviceable and replacing them is done quickly without requiring the need for any special tool. Again, these improvements were implemented with the travelling photographer in mind, reliability and users friendly field maintenance being the key word here.

Additional bulkheads access holes (16mm & ½ sized) are available for adapting accessories such an external monitor, triggering device, Surveyor vacuum monitoring system and/or sound recording accessories.

VIEWFINDERS
The Aquatica A5Dsr is supplied with Aquatica's Galileo type eye piece. This high quality and coated optical finder gives a bright and full view of the view finder. For those seeking the ultimate in viewing for still image, the optional Aqua View Finder, available in straight and 45 degrees version, are among the best of the industry, they can easily be installed in a matter of a few minutes by the user. The enlarged and enhanced image provided by the Aqua View Finder is second to none in clarity, it provides the photographer with tack sharp corner to corner viewing of the camera view finder for composing and critical focusing

OPTICS
These new Canon 5D models, with their 50 megapixels, will be brutally demanding on optics, both the ones mounted on the camera and the ones attached to the housings. The Aquatica housing are supported by one of the most established and comprehensive port and accessories system of the industry. Aquatica's ports are manufactured with the finest optical material available, with four different sizes dome ports and three flat macro port, that selection is intended to let you optimize your system according to the situation at hand.

Dome ports are as follows: starting by Aquatica's state-of-the-art 9.25/230mm Megadome made of BK-7 coated mineral glass, to Aquatica's classic workhorses, the 8 and 6 dome ports with removable shade, and going down all the way to the diminutive 4/100mm Minidome, also made of coated BK7 glass. A selection of port extension rings, some including Aquatica's unique manual focus capability, these extension are available for both the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM Type II and the EF 17-40mm f/4L USM, Two serious candidates for the video shooter and for which manual focus access is vital, prime lens focusing can be done using the controls knob on the upper left side of the housing.

The Aquatica 5Dsr is destined, much like its predecessor, the A5D Mk III, for a life of multi-tasking role. This previous A5D version is still a reference to date, and is used by many of the major television underwater documentary production; it has been embraced by scores of top image makers in the world whose work can be seen weekly on network television, advertising work and movie productions.

This philosophy that made the Canon 5D Mk III and its Aquatica housing so popular has not been lost on this newer version! Every effort was made to give you an underwater imaging system that can be tailored to your needs.

Canon EOS 5DS R Full Frame DSLR Camera Body





Its All in the Detail
With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor, with the low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority.

Spectacular Resolution for Specialized Applications
Low-pass filter effect cancellation

For photographers wanting the ultimate in high resolution capture, the EOS 5DS R camera has a low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancellation. While a low-pass filter is useful to reduce color artifacts and moiré typical with digital capture, it also reduces detail at the pixel level. With the LPF disabled, the EOS 5DS R takes full advantage of the original resolving power of the camera's 50.6 Megapixel sensor. More detail is captured and retained in the original image, perfect for landscape and commercial applications where pixel-level detail is scrutinized and when the sharpest possible image is needed.

More Resolution for Bigger Images
New 50.6 Megapixel Full-frame CMOS sensor

The EOS 5DS R camera features Canon's newest full-frame CMOS sensor. At 50.6 Megapixels, it's the highest resolution sensor in the history of EOS. It captures 8712 x 5813 effective pixels, delivering images with an unprecedented level of realism perfect for large-scale commercial printing, fine art, significant crops and any number of other high-end applications. Thanks to this amazing sensor, engineered to work in concert with dual DIGIC 6 Image Processors, the EOS 5DS R is a remarkable, high-resolution camera with impressive performance.

New Fine Detail mode in Picture Style
Taking advantage of its sensor's high-resolution capturing power, the EOS 5DS R camera has a new Picture Style called Fine Detail mode. Fine Detail emphasizes fine edges and patterns or textures by setting the camera's Sharpness sub-settings, fineness and threshold to their minimum and by lowering contrast settings as well. Prioritizing minute details in the image allows for better gradations, more detailed textures and fine edges for smoother, more polished photographs.

Speed and Accuracy with Intelligent Scene Recognition and Analysis
EOS Scene Detection System with RGB+IR Metering Sensor

The EOS 5DS R camera has an amazing iSA Intelligent Scene Analysis system that employs an independent RGB+IR light sensor with approximately 150,000-pixel resolution. This sensor enables Canon's Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system (iTR AF) that detects and tracks subjects, automatically switching the AF point to optimize tracking. With new tracking algorithms tailored to recognize faces and colors, this system serves as a brilliant foundation to the EOS 5DS R's AF system.

Precise and Fast AF for High Resolution Detail
61-point High Density Reticular AF

For fast, precise AF with sophisticated tracking performance, the EOS 5DS R camera has an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system with up to 41 cross-type AF points. The EOS 5DS R's AF system is incredibly sensitive to changes in composition, making adjustments quickly to help ensure consistent, sharp AF. A new RGB+IR AF (with approximately 150,000 pixels) sensor monitors subject motion, and Canon's iTR Intelligent Tracking and Recognition system synchronizes the active AF point with the subject's motion, helping to ensure that AF precision is maintained. With focus modes dedicated to the particulars of the shooting environment, the EOS 5DS R realizes a level of focus accuracy befitting its 50.6 Megapixel sensor.

Mirror Vibration Control for Sharper images
Advanced Mirror control mechanism and shutter release time lag

The camera shake that occurs from the impact of an SLR's mirror can leave blurred details in the recorded image. This effect is magnified when working with a super high-resolution sensor like the one found in the EOS 5DS R camera. To counter the effects of conventional, spring-driven SLR mirrors, the EOS 5DS R features a newly developed Mirror Vibration Control system. The camera's mirror is not controlled by springs but instead is driven by a small motor and cams. This system suppresses the impact typical of the camera's mirror, significantly reducing impact and its effects on the image. A new Time Release Lag setting, easily accessed on the EOS 5DS R's menu system, offers added protection against camera shake by setting the shutter release time intentionally longer so the camera does not begin the exposure until after the impact of the camera's mirror has diffused.

Better Accuracy in More Situations
Anti-flicker feature

With Canon's Anti-flicker function, the EOS 5DS R camera is able to deliver accurate results under cycling lighting situations. Under flickering light, such as fluorescent lighting, a fast shutter speed may result in an irregular exposure. The EOS 5DS R's Anti-flicker function detects the frequency and phase of the flicker and captures images near the point of peak brightness when the subject is most likely well illuminated.

Specialty Controls, Built Right In
Built-in intervalometer and bulb timer

The EOS 5DS R camera offers time-lapse fixed-point shooting and long exposures without the need for a remote control. The EOS 5DS R's interval timer takes from 1 to 99 shots at preselected intervals (from 1 second to 99 hours 59 minutes 59 seconds, or unlimited), ideal for shooting flowers as they bloom or clouds drifting through the sky. Captured exposures can even be collected and saved as an HD movie. Its built-in bulb timer keeps the shutter open for a designated amount of time, perfect for night photography, to capture the flow of traffic on a street corner, or any other situation where long exposure photography is warranted.

Simple Cropped Shooting, In Camera
1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting

For still photography, the EOS 5DS R camera features the flexibility of a cropping feature that extends the shooting effect 1.3x and 1.6x. With 50.6 Megapixel capture, cropped shots are possible with plenty of resolution to spare. Images recorded at 1.3x (APS-H) are approximately 30.5 Megapixels (6768 x 4512) Large/Fine JPEG, while images recorded at 1.6x (APS-C) are approximately 19.6 Megapixels (5424 x 3616) Large/Fine JPEG. Particularly useful in extending the range of telephoto lenses, the crop function also improves the EOS 5DS R's subject tracking capability with almost the entire frame covered with AF points. Image cropping can be displayed in the viewfinder either masked or overlaid with an outline showing the cropped area, and in Live View shooting the image is cropped by the effect chosen. Aspect ratios can also be defined, with the EOS 5DS R shooting in 1:1, 4:3, and 16:9 ratios, in addition to the default 3:2.

Sophisticated Moviemaking with EOS
Full HD 30p movie capability

The EOS 5DS R camera is a sophisticated movie-making machine, capturing Full HD movies with numerous manual controls at multiple frame rates and compressions. Featuring movie capture and manual controls, the EOS 5DS R's shutter button can be programmed to capture still images when pressed during movie shooting.
