Press Release. Montreal, Canada, June 7, 2012

The Aquatica Team is proud to introduce you to the Aquatica A5D Mk III housing for the acclaimed Canon 5D Mk III. Our Design team has upped the game with this recently released camera. New features have been added to this housing to improve operation and compatibility, but importantly, this precision housing is the product of a very time proven lineage of underwater camera housing. 30 years of knowledge in this field has made sure that every aspect of the housing ergonomics and access to all controls were carefully implemented. The final result of this camera housing mirrors the constant evolution of technology and the input of highly respected professionals image makers from around the world.

Aquatica A5DIII
The Aquatica A5D Mk III housing still benefits from the finest material available in the industry. Carefully crafted from a selected alloy of aircraft grade aluminum and premium grade of stainless steel, the housing is machined on the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines. It is then protected by anodizing to North American military specification for further protection, Aquatica provides corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes as standard equipment and coats their housing with a baked on, tough as nail, powder coating. This extra level of protection does make a huge difference as can be seen on some Aquatica housings that even with over 1,500 dive on them, still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box. This housing is made for the hard working professional in mind, one who truly understands reliability in the field.

“Ocean” An underwater film by Sarosh Jacob

A few months ago I started my PADI lessons in Cebu, Philippines. I discovered diving and I love it! Last week I finished my lessons in Switzerland and now I’m ready to go!  I’m presenting here the film “Ocean” filmed and edited by Sarosh Jacob. He shot in Bonaire and Palau during 2011 and he used a Canon 5D mark II with a Sigma 15mm fisheye and an Aquatica housing. I’ll post some other videos about underwater filming and maybe later I’ll post one of my own! If you would like to post an underwater video on Cameraman.com just let me know.
