Product No.06152
  • Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x and VF45 1.2x viewfinders
    By attaching the VF180 or the VF45 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.

  • Two Fiber-optic cable sockets
    Simply by connecting the Fiber-Optic Cable (L-type)50107 to the connector, the light of the digital camera’s built-in flash is detected and connected to an external strobe. This is considerably less complicated than setting up an electrical connector that requires detailed knowledge. It also eliminates any risks involved when the connector is submerged in water.
  • Suitable for taking both still images and movie
    Unparalleled design provides easy access to the main dial and the quick control dial. Shutter speed and aperture can be adjusted without removing your hand from the grip. Button to activate live view photography and video is ergonomically positioned for easy access. While holding the grip, you can control AE lock / Index / Reduce lever and AF point selection / Magnify lever and AF start lever to check focus points and then press the start / stop button to record video. The setting button is also situated close to the grip for quick access to the button. Great functionality, engineering and ergonomic design make this housing exceptional.
MDX-7D Other Features
  • Controls almost all of the Canon EOS 7D 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.

  • A new type of easily operated shutter lever, excellent for taking quick snapshots and for avoiding motion blur. The shutter lever can be operated in two ways—by pushing from the top or pulling from the front—and offers a smooth option for adjusting the autofocus by pressing the button halfway down so you need not worry about any missed chances.
  • TTL auto adjustment available when using an optional YS Converter/C. 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.
  • Furnished with a tripod socket in the central region of the bottom surface of the main body.  If you remove the attached Ergo Grip22109, you can also add an optional Grip-Stay L22108.
  • 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. The camera is firmly and correctly mounted on the quick shoe with the tripod screw hole and the positioning pin. 
  • 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.
