Hello Wetpixel community,

 

I have a minor issue and am looking for suggestions.

I have an Aquatica 40/50D Canon underwater housing which has the old focus knobs.

These are not so easy to be controld by using gloves.

 

Apart from the XIX 404 focus knobs replacement, do we have other solutions ?

Anybody who has replace them with the new Aquatica ?

Any idea where to find them as well as the price ?

 

Dimitris

Aquatica has 2 versions of the zoom knob.  You should be able to replace the standard knob with the one with more pronounced "ears".  Your dealer should be able to get one from Aquatica.  The knob is held in place by an allen grub screw.
