Hi, what is exactly the part(s) you are looking for, I might be able to direct you to the best source if I know what you are looking for.


just let me know the housing model and the part in question, if you are not sure how to describe it you can either post a picture of the parts you need or if you prefer, send the picture directly to me at jean@aquatica.ca

In Topic: Have Housing Missing Camera Tray / saddle

Eyu, That housing is for a camera going back close to 10 years ago, so I would finds it inconceivable to expect to have these specifications right on a desktop ready for sending, you have to be realistic, this is not the automotive industry,things get archived at one point, design and manufacturing software (and manufacturing process method) change over time. So hopefully it is somewhere on a server and need to be tracked down, and that will requires time to find it.


Manufacturers, no matter what type of products they make, are not usually keen on releasing manufacturing CAD files drawing, so obliviously, they would not be in a "ready at a moments notice" availability. Hopefully the fact that we are ready to release said drawing, if available, is sufficient.

Occasionally, one would need to protect the camera from the elements, and that would be a understandable use such a long lens, underwater, as the water column increase (the water between lens and subject) so does the loss of sharpness and color saturation, this is the main reason why such long lens are not used underwater. there are macro lenses that will actually go to 200mm, but these are intended for macro purpose (thus reducing the water between the lens and subject), your zoom, lens does not have the macro capability to be useful in this manner either.


Typically for the Canon 60D a good selection of lens would include either the 60mm macro (or more radically,the 100mm Macro), a wide angle in the 10mm to +/-20mm and a fisheye (most popular one being the Tokina 10-17mm, this is the holy trilogy for the APS-C format, anything else is nice but non essential IMO.

In Topic: Aquatica A7D housing - AF-ON lever got stuck

Ignati, it is a somewhat complex assembly, I would recommend that you get in touch with Backscatter, they are an authorized service center and they can look at it, it is most likely a built up of salt, they can do an overhaul at the same time, if the housing has not been serviced for a while, it might be a good idea to do so.
