CUSTOM OPTIONS

Optional Sea and Sea 45 Degree Viewfinder
Standard viewfinders reduce original image size for full view of the corners and shooting data. The Sea and Sea 1.2x SLR 45 Degree Viewfinder is a prism optic that greatly magnifies original image size and thus reduces eye strain and improves composition. The Sea and Sea 45 rotates for vertical use. Price includes custom installation.

DESCRIPTION


Sea & Sea MDX-6D Underwater Housing for Canon 6D Camera


Sea & Sea has announced the imminent release of their housing for the Canon EOS 6D SLR. The MDX-6D is made from black anodized aluminum alloy and gives access to almost all of the cameras essential underwater functions (except Depth-of-Field Preview button). Sea & Seas YS Converter/C can now be built into the MDX-6D housing by Backscatter. Other features include:
  • Shutter lever tension can be adjusted with a spring.
  • Port lock can be accessed without opening the housing.
  • New grip design with threadless fixings.
  • Tripod socket on the centre underside of the housing.

Features

YS Converter/C can be built into the housing

YS Converter/C can now be built into the MDX-6D housing. With the (optional) internal YS Converter/C, the ergonomics of the housing system will be greatly enhanced. TTL exposure-compensation and switching between TTL and Manual modes are controlled from the housing. Remaining battery power can also be checked from the housing.

Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x and VF45 1.2x viewfinders
By attaching the VF180 (#46112) or the VF45 prism viewfinders (#46111) (magnification ratio of 1.2x) to the housing, the magnification increases by 1.2x and entire field of view can be seen at the same time. Recommended for users committed to strict composition and focusing.

Port can be replaced without opening the housing
Port lock can be now activated from outside the housing. The housing is also equipped with a lens-lock release button which allows the lens to be replaced without opening the housing. The port lock can also be activated from inside like previous SEA&SEA housings.

  • Every detail of the housing is precision-machined from a solid aluminum-alloy block to achieve a high-quality texture and design, The black-colored anodization strengthens and protects the housing.
  • Controls: Almost all the Canon EOS 6D essential underwater functions (except Depth-of-Field Preview button) can be used.
  • Controls: Almost all the Canon EOS 6D essential underwater functions (except Depth-of-Field Preview button) can be used.
