Press release: Aquatica housing for the Canon 5Ds, 5Dsr & 5D Mk III is being introduced!
The Aquatica Team is proud to introduce to you the new Aquatica A5Dsr housing for the upcoming Canon 5Ds, 5Dsr and the existing 5D Mk III. Scheduled for shipping around July 1st.
THE DESIGN
Our Design team has refreshed the housing design for the 5D line of cameras with new improved operational ergonomics. This precision housing follows in the steps of a very time proven lineage of underwater camera housings for the constantly evolving 5D camera line up. Aquatica has been on top of the 5D program since they introduced the original one a decade ago, much like the 5D camera did, our housing has evolved into a fine imaging tool that mirrors the constant evolution of technology and the input of highly respected professional’s image makers from around the world.

IKELITE TTL OPTION & EXPOSURE CONTROL
Now offering original internal TTL circuitry from Ikelite as an option, this 5Dsr housing edition brings creativity to a new level, strobe exposure control is right there, were it is supposed to be, you can now tweak your lighting exposure or even go fully manual right at your fingertips. Controlling the amount of light entering your camera is paramount to the success of any image maker, and the A5Dsr housing controls for aperture, shutter, ISO and strobes exposures are all a “hands on the grips” approach. Every one of these is positioned to be intuitive, eliminating confusion and making the housing a natural extension of the photographer.
THE CONSTRUCTION
The Canon 5Ds and 5Dsr cameras brings stunning and previously unheard of levels of resolution to the realms of DSLR’s cameras, our job at Aquatica is to provide you with the right tools for capturing your vision of the underwater world.
All Aquatica housings are constructed from the finest material available in the industry. They are carefully crafted from a selected alloy of aircraft grade aluminum and a premium grade of stainless steel, the housing shell is machined using the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines. After undergoing a series of quality control operations, the main body and its controls knobs will get protection by anodizing them to North American military specifications, furthermore, a coating of “tough as nail” powder coating is baked on at a high temperature. Corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes are standard equipment on all of our housings. These extra levels of protection are apparent, as can be seen on some Aquatica housings that, even with over 1,500 dives on them, still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box.


The A5Dsr housing was designed to be as small and lightweight as it could be, nevertheless its lightness in weight should not be taken for a weakness. This housing still has the same standard 90m/300ft depth rating and can still be upgraded to 130m/425ft.
Aquatica housings are made for the hard working photographer in mind, one who truly understands reliability in the field. Being built in Canada means that every Aquatica housing is born and bred in one of the world most rugged diving environment. Bottom line, if it works in our local conditions, it will work everywhere else!
