Aqua Tech housing for Canon 5D Mark 2 07/7


Okay so I am trying something a little different at the moment. Early this week I picked up the Aqua Tech DC-5 housing for the Canon 5D Mark 2 and after a quick camera-less test in the pool to make sure the housing was water tight I jumped in the surf and had a bit of a play underwater. I am still testing different settings to see what works and what doesn’t but I have managed to snap this shot off whilst learning the ropes. I think I might have to start planning a trip to Fiji this thing would be epic over there.

As I said before, nice one mate. Looks much better with the one little reflection gone, too. Can’t wait to see what you can do with this on Fraser!

Hi Darren,

Nice photo mate. I haven’t touched my underwater housing in a couple of months now. Waters too cold for me. ;-)

Cheers Jamie

After two hours you end up pretty cold even over here so it would be FREEZING in Perth even in a wetsuit, you wouldn’t get me out there at the moment its not too bad over here water is about 19-20 degrees at the moment so you love the hot shower once you get out.
