Relevant Information

Replacement of the strobe sync connector (6-pin wired → 2-pin wired)
Consult a SEA&SEA authorized service center for more compatibility information.
Customizing the housing offers additional functions. You can replace the 6-pin wired TTL converter connector on the top of the housing with a 2-pin wired strobe connector for an additional cost. This modification provides two 2-pin wired strobe connectors so you can connect two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes.
*This modification does not support automatic TTL flash adjustment. *It requires the 5-pin Sync Cord/N.

Features

Compatible with both the VF180 and VF45 1.2x viewfinders
By attaching the VF180 1.2x or the VF45 1.2x prism viewfinder (magnification ratio of 1.2x) to a SEA&SEA 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.

Realizing even more comfortable manual operation
Thoroughly pursued a unique structure where the fingers easily reach the main dial and the quick control dial.  As a result, succeeded in moving the quick control dial closer to the grip than what is found in conventional models by adjusting the chassis within the housing. With a hand on the grip, snappy adjustment of the shutter / aperture can be made. An appropriate amount of clearance not found anywhere else realizes a high level of holding, which delivers an ideal shooting position.
AE lock / FE lock / Index / Reduce / AF point selection / Magnify lever was also changed from the conventional slide-switching type to an up-down, combinable type. Of course, the reverse slant (diagonal) button from the original configuration is still around. Even more active functionality and styling are combined at high dimension.

Compact durable design
The new style of MDX series housings based on the premise of a professional level of photographic representation employs an even more aggressive design by integrating smooth curves and sharp edges. With the standard thickness of aluminum material being made even thinner than that of conventional models, we realized a reduction in size while maintaining rigidity.
    • Controls almost all of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II essential functions underwater.
    • Every detail of the housing is precision machined from a solid aluminum block to achieve a high-quality texture and design. All edges have been polished carefully for safety.
    • The housing is protected by a highly corrosion resistant, anodized coating. The coating protects the housing from environmental corrosion and abrasions.
    • YS converter connector employed as standard. When using a YS Converter/C to enable the TTL auto adjustment, use a 5-pin Sync Cord/N to connect it to a genuine SEA&SEA strobe.
    • The easily damaged front lower part is guarded by a bumper protector.
    • Furnished with a tripod socket in the central region of the bottom surface of the main body.  If you remove the attached Ergo Grip, you can also add an optional Grip-Stay L.
    • Comes standard with two bulkhead connectors: one type-N connector (2-pin wired for manual) and one 6-pin wired connector (for dedicated TTL).
    • Equipped with a Optical Viewfinder 0.5x standard. Interchangeable 0.66x/0.8x viewfinders (optional) are also available.
    • The quick shoe makes the camera easy to install and remove from the housing.
    • A built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to any water leakage.
    • Strong and durable build, with a depth rating of up to 60m / 200ft.
    • *The MDX-PRO 5D Mark II housing comes from the factory with these type-N connectors: one 2-pin wired connector and one 5-pin wired connector.
      *To use two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes with the factory-equipped type-N connectors, you must use the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N.
