Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
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.

Every button equipped with a luminous sticker.
Shutter lever tension can be adjusted with a spring.
