Long-time Wetpixel member Bruce Yates writes about his new Aquatica underwater housing for the Canon 5D Mk II and compares Aquatica housings to Seacam housings (Bruce was a long-time Seacam user).
The Aquatica 5DII housing feels solid and sturdy, and every part meshes precisely. It is truly a professional-grade housing. It has a moisture alarm, and I like the way the camera mounts onto a tray, and the mounting tray slides solidly on two rods and latches in place, so there is no question of it being in place. I actually prefer this to the Seacam mount, which requires that you screw and unscrew a screw into the camera’s tripod hole each time… The only build aspect for which I still give the nod to Seacam is the “fuzz” that covers the inside of Seacam housings to absorb any bits of moisture that might find its way in…
See what Bruce thinks of his new housing!
