The Isotta housing 5DMKIII for the Canon 5D Mark III is made from carefully selected aircraft grade aluminum alloy and premium grade stainless steel. It is machined on the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines available, and is protected by anodizing it. While anodizing will protect the housing from the environment, it will fade and discolor if left exposed to the elements, and so for further protection.

Precise shaping is achieved through laser cutting tools, all controls shafts are double O-ring sealed, all push buttonshave Quad-ring seals, and every shaft and push button are manufactured to a mirror smooth surface that meets strictest standards. All of this is done to achieve the standard 300ft/90 meter (and upgradeable depth rating of 425ft/130m) depth rating assigned to all our housings.

No matter what the diving conditions are, you remain in control of the situation with the Isotta 5DMKIII. The thickest of cold water gloves or the smallest of bare hands will not be hindered by the layout. All functions are identified with pad printed paint for quick visual identification and to eliminate the frustration of searching for relocated controls.

Dual optical strobe connectors come standard with the housing, and can fit all popular optical cords on the market. Connecting any S-TTL strobe on the market is a breeze and will give spot on TTL exposure via the cameras built in flash circuitry. Even with the extremely compact size of this housing, Aquatica has managed to build in a quick access, one finger operated, internal flash control lever that brings the camera built-in flash up and down. This allows for quickly alternating between strobe illuminated and ambient light photography. For users of more classic strobe connectivity or those that prefer electrically connected TTL converters, the housing comes with a classic Nikonos type connector.

Handling is via a pair of molded grips that have been the benchmark for comfort for the last 20 years. Both grips are provided with mounting holes ready to accept the most current strobes and their supporting arms.The housing body has an extra mounting point for a focus/video light or other accessories, and 3 mounting points are provided under for various brackets for a tripod.

Isotta housings have been come standard with a lens release for a long time now, and this time around we used a revolutionary approach for securing and releasing the ports and lenses– one multifunction lever. One lever is now used for locking/unlocking the port in place and also to disengage and move the pinion gear out of the way to let the camera and lens (with its gear attached) slide out of the housing effortlessly. Disengaging the pinion gear is also helpful when one wishes to alternate between AF and Manual focus on some prime lenses. Lastly, just pushing down the external lever will engage the lens release button and allow for lens swapping without having to remove the camera from the housing.

Viewing on the Isotta 5DMKIII is through a Galileo type eyepiece. This high quality coated optical finder gives a bright and full view of the camera’s viewfinder.


MAIN FEATURES

  • Moisture Alarm: included with the housing is a factory installed moisture detector. This alarm operates with a popular CR 2032 battery and gives both a visual signal via a red LED and an audio one with the integrated high frequency piezzo electric buzzer.

  • Optical Fiber Strobe Connections: Options include optical ports for both Sea & Sea ® or INON ® type connectors, as well as, traditional methods of connecting strobes via the Nikonos ® or Ikelite ® standard connectors. In essence, as far as underwater strobe connectivity, this housing is the most flexible in the industry.

  • Internal camera flash access: A flip lever on the housing is provided to release the flash tothe up position and to shut it back down. This allows the user to quickly shutdown the internal flash for ambient light images and easily return to flash photography with the flip of a lever.

  • Bayonet Port: A positive four point bayonet mounting and a locking mechanism leaves no doubt that your ports are secured in place and are water tight. The bayonet system dome ports, macro ports, and extension rings offer the fastest and most comprehensive access to the lenses for rapid changing without having to remove the camera from the housing. This housing allows use of lenses from a 10mm/180 degrees fisheye lens to a 200mm macro lens. Teleconverter port extensions are also available.

  • Controls & Menus: The housing provides access to all the camera menus and video controls including On-Off, Live View mode, Record On/Off, ISO lever, Exposure Mode, Bracketing, Meter positioning and focus control, and AF activation and lock. Access to all of the menu’s features include enlarge and delete, histogram and internal SLR preferences, and a quick access and conveniently angled review button. Knobs are now grooved and knurled for optimum operation when wearing thick gloves and the multi controller pad of the camera has been reproduced for faster and easier handling.

  • Lens/Port Release multifunction lever:  A new type of multifunction lever is introduced on the AD7000 housing that allows for easy locking/unlocking of the port, gives access to lens changing through the front port with the camera installed, and retracts the Focus / Zoom control internal pinion gear. This new retractable mechanism now allows the gear rack to be pulled out of the way, making easy work of inserting and removing the camera witha lens even when a gear is attached to it.

  • Viewing Eye Piece: The most critical aspect of underwater SLR photography is the viewing system. In this aspect our housing uses a viewfinder that shows the biggest and the brightest image possible with full frame view.
