Rate & Review


The MDX-5D Underwater Housing For Canon EOS 5D Mark III from Sea & Sea is a watertight case precision-machined from a solid block of aluminum for light weight and durability. It has an impressive depth rating of 330' (100 m). It's protected against the potentially harmful effects of seawater by a corrosion-resistant anodized coating, which also gives the housing an olive-green color. The MDX-5D is compatible with the line of NX series ports from Sea & Sea (port not included), allowing for the attachment of wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. Ergonomically designed with dual handles for a comfortable hold and simple operation, the housing enables access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical and button controls.

The MDX-5D features a rear LCD window with an anti-reflective coating for reduced glare, and thus, improved visibility. This window accepts optional VF-45 and VF-180 1.2x prism viewfinders (sold separately). The housing is also equipped with a sync cord connector port for a manual converter (requires #SS-50122, sold separately) or YS Converter/C (requires #SS-50121, sold separately), which will permit the attachment of external strobes, including those that support TTL.
