Aquatica 5D housing photos

Recommended Posts

I got these from Aquatica today - I should have my housing in a few days (they ship tomorow - woohoo!) and I'll post a review then if I haven't been beaten to the punch. It incorporates many of the features of the D2X housing, including the new camera mount.

Looks very nice. I think this new generation of Aquaticas (D2X onwards) are looking very nice indeed.

It looks like a 20D housing to me. There is no grips in these photos, is it included?

Thoese grips of 20D was look like made of plastics, would this housing use the same material for the grips?

No, the grips are not included. Housing pictured sells for $9.99 and the grips are sold separately for $1,549...:-)

 

Just joking of course.

 

I'm guessing that the handles will be the same as used for the 20D. The housing looks very similar.

For weight friendliness I mush prefer the handles the way they are on the 20D. Metal handles would add some weight for travel and carry.

I'm waiting for the quote from my local dealer, 10 days already!

 

I just wondering, why Aquatica can start shipping housing, but can't provide any official info/picture in its website.

Because the official product photographer (me) has just finished them yesterday (swamped, sick, busy diving, testing and now drowsy) and will post them tonight, I swear ! oh what the heck here is one, i'll not go down the book as lazy :D

 

cheers

The housing looks very nice. Thanks for posting. Okay so Canon put an extra button on it for printing. Pretty worthless for the most part, but I have heard noises from folks trying to get into the firmware and make the button user programable. If this happens what are the chances that this button could accessable while housed? I.e. can this button be retro added?
