Aquatica A1DCX at The Scuba NewsIn collaboration with Samy’s Camera, Aquatica Digital is pleased to announce the release of their A1D-C/X housing, the latest in its fine line of precision crafted aluminum housings. Canon’s flagship 1D C and 1D X cameras are professional imaging tools with equally impressive still and video capabilities. With customized controls, next generation lens gear system and uncompromised viewing, Aquatica’s new A1D-C/X housing puts the 1D X and 1D C into the hands of photographers shooting in the world’s most demanding underwater environments.

The housing is priced competitively at USD $4,599.95

About The A1D-C/X Housing

This new Aquatica housing, like all housings we make, is milled from a solid block of 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum, it is black anodized and then for further protection, a resistant polyester electrostatic powder coat paint is added. This ensures that your investment will last a lifetime. The A1D-C/X is also optimized for video shooters to take advantage of these cameras broadcast quality (1D-C: 4K cinematic quality video, and 1D-X: 1920 x 1080 HD video capture) HD video functions. All video controls are designed for easy reach and smooth operation through the housing.

This includes a next-generation lens gearing system with a smaller housing pinion gear and a larger lens gear, allowing for a much smoother action while zooming in a video sequence. The Aquatica quick release tray delivers smooth and precise positioning of the camera in the housing and allows the user to insert and remove the camera using a simple push tab. The zoom /focus pinion gear and lens release lever also pull out so that the camera can be removed from the back while keeping a lens and zoom gear attached.

The video record on/off control lever is perfectly located on the right side of the housing. This lever is easily controlled with the thumb using a slight forward motion. All push buttons are made from high quality type 304 stainless steel and operate smoothly for an natural feel and intuitive operation.

The A1D-C/X housing will ship with a bulkhead opening for future and easy installation of the optional vacuum valves.
