Waterhousing design & philosophy

Traditionally there have been two main styles of housings

Front loading

      The housing shell is usually camera specific
      Or the housing shell is oversized to accommodate different cameras mounted on sliding plates
      Front ports are specific to the housing shell and not usable with another housing

Back loading

      All the hardware to hold the back plate in place is right in your face.
      Housing shell is usually camera specific
      Or the housing shell is oversized to accommodate different cameras
      Back plate is flat and does not conform to the camera


The Slant-X solution

Placing the parting line on a slant enables a radical new design concept allowing:


      Camera specific interchangeable control backs
      Universal Node
      Interchangeable ports
      When a new camera such as the 7D Mark II is released, a new control back upgrades and expands your entire waterhousing system!
      All control backs position the camera so the lens is concentric with the lens port and the film plane (sensor plane) is always on the same plane.
      All hardware used to seal the waterhousing is placed on the sides, away from the photographers face.
      Control backs conform to the camera
      Essex low profile controls are always used for a face friendly experience.
