Mirror Less / SLR Camera Housings MDX-series MDX-α7III


Housing designed for ease of use and weight underwater Compatible with all the DX (NX) ports series. Larger diameter lenses can be easily removed through the increased housing port diameter to enable battery exchange in camera body without removing lens.

Sea&Sea engineers have designed a unique Buoyancy Pocket*, which can also accommodate accessories such as a mobile battery charger**, without compromising the overall size of the housing. The availability of an optional battery charger has addressed battery life of the camera and allows shooting for extended periods without concern of camera power loss.

The internal space also contributes to the reduction of the weight underwater. Combined with the lightweight camera body, we realized a phenomenal underwater weight of 700 grams***, eliminating the necessity to attach large floats.

*Approx 100×63×24(mm)
**Please note any and all restrictions by camera manufacturer when using 3rd party accessories. Please use these products at your own discretion.
***Housing configured with DX macro 87 Port and SL90M28G lens.

Compatible with optical converter S1

Compatible with Sea&Sea “optical converter S1” which converts the strobe light emission signal of the camera to LED light and synchronizes with the Sea&Sea YS strobe. It is a high-performance converter that does not just emit simple light-emitting signals like other companies, but also performs TTL auto light control.
※ Sony original adapter “ADP - MAA” is required separately for connecting the camera and optical converter.
