YS Converter/C can be built into the housing
YS Converter/C can now be built into the MDX-6D housing. With the (optional) internal YS Converter/C, the ergonomics of the housing system will be greatly enhanced. TTL exposure-compensation and switching between TTL and Manual modes are controlled from the housing. Remaining battery power can also be checked from the housing.

With the VF45 1.2x mounted
Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x and VF45 1.2x viewfinders
By attaching the VF180 (#46112) or the VF45 prism viewfinders (#46111) (magnification ratio of 1.2x) to the housing, the magnification increases by 1.2x and entire field of view can be seen at the same time. Recommended for users committed to strict composition and focusing.

* You may encounter some difficulties to access the info button function if VF45 1.2x is installed on the housing. To avoid this problem, manufacturer suggests using VF180 1.2x instead.

Port can be replaced without opening the housing
Port lock can be now activated from outside the housing. The housing is also equipped with a ‘lens-lock release’ button which allows the lens to be replaced without opening the housing. The port lock can also be activated from inside like previous SEA&SEA housings.
    • The housing comes with N type connector (2-pin wired).
    • Every detail of the housing is precision-machined from a solid aluminum-alloy block to achieve a high-quality texture and design, The black-colored anodization strengthens and protects the housing.
    • Controls: Almost all the Canon EOS 6D essential underwater functions (except Depth-of-Field Preview button) can be used.
    • Equipped with Accessory Port which can be used for HDMI output. * When optional internal YS converter/C is installed, the accessory port is used for this purpose only.
    • Shutter lever tension can be adjusted with a spring.
    • The grip design has been significantly improved with the travelling diver in mind.  The grips are mounted with threadless fixings to facilitate easy transportation, mounting and removal of the grips.  The new design also alleviates corrosion build up around the fittings.  All fixings are available as spare parts.
    • Fitted with a tripod socket on the centre underside of the housing.
    • Equipped with the Optical Viewfinder 0.5x as standard. Other (optional) interchangeable viewfinders can be used.
    • The quick shoe makes the camera easy to install and remove from the housing.
    • Built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to water ingress.
    • Depth rating of 100m / 330ft makes the housing ideal for tech diving.
