●Designed to be compact and lightweightErgonomically designed MDX-GRD IV is a precision machined underwater housing made from a solid block of aluminum alloy.The housing is compact and has a small internal volume reducing excess buoyancy.

●Two Fiber-optic cable sockets By inserting the Fiber-optic Cable L-type into the housing connector, an external strobe will be optically connected to the camera’s built-in flash enabling full-featured strobe photography and creative lighting expression.

●The DX-1G/2G port bayonet mount is employed The Wide-angle Conversion Lens for DX-1G (optional) can be mounted on the port of the housing.
The bayonet mount allows you to easily attach the lens to the housing.  The lens can be attached and detached underwater.  (The lens is wet-mountable.)
* When the lens is mounted, the angle of view increases from 28mm to about 18mm (35mm film camera equivalent).
* Shadow of the lens will appear in images if the camera’s built-in flash is used when the lens is mounted.  Use of an external strobe is recommended.

●The LCD Monitor Hood with Lens (optional) can be mounted. The monitor hood covers the entire LCD preventing unnecessary reflections and glare while helping to provide clear images from corner to corner.

●The housing can be easily opened and locked with the rotary latches and hinges.
●The Sea Arm 8 or the Sea Arm 7 can be mounted utilizing screw mounts on the bottom of the housing.  Up to two external strobes can be fixed.
