Equinox has announced the release of a housing for the Canon 5D Mk II camera. Somewhat of a departure from the company’s line of video specific housings, this reflects the popularity of the camera for video rather than stills use. The housing is designed around the use of a 16-35mm lens, although other lenses can be accommodated by special request and it provides access to shutter release, menu button, menu select/scroll and play controls. It also features Equinox’s ballast release handles, which allow the user to make the housing positively buoyant if some contingency demands it.
The housing is available now at a price of $1599.
The housing weighs 12lbs at the surface and is neutrally buoyant underwater.
