Have a photoshoot lined up at the beach? Want to start shooting in or underwater? Aquatech can help with that. The new Elite II series of water housings still have an impressive 10m depth rating, but now offer more intuitive and comfortable controls than ever before. Each carefully crafted housing is meticulously sealed to protect your camera from water, weather, and sand so you can shoot confidently in any conditions. Made for a huge range of cameras, they’re perfect for pros and enthusiasts looking to make a splash.

Protection for Sony Alpha Mirrorless Camera

Aquatech’s Elite II water housing has been custom shaped and built for Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras including the a9, a7RIII, and a7III. The housing fits your camera like a glove, keeping it securely in place while you’re moving about. The beauty is that you can use the camera you know and love, rather than having to buy and rely on separate waterproof cameras for underwater action.

10 Metre Depth Rating

When you’re finally ready to take the dive into underwater photography, the Elite II housing’s impressive sealing offers a 10m depth rating that will keep your camera safe and dry. Use it at the beach for sand protection, or use it in snow, fresh or salt water, the choice is yours.

Improved Shutter Release System

The Aquatech Elite 2 housing features the same popular and familiar ergonomics of its former iteration, but with even better control. Now, you’ll get to experience an advanced electronic shutter release system that feels more natural and similar to your camera’s actual shutter. You can more easily tell the difference between a half press for focus, and a full press for shutter release.

Intuitive Control Options

On top of the new shutter release system, you can still access many of your camera’s important controls. You never know what you’ll encounter in the deep blue sea, so you might need to change your settings now and again. The Elite II gives you the flexibility to do just that.

Controls include: Menu, C3, Record, Rear Top Dial, AF-ON, FN, Multi Control Pad (right-hand side only), Rear Control Wheel, Centre Button, Playback, C4/Delete, Dual Shutter Buttons.

Lens Ports that Retain Image Quality

Just like its predecessor, the Elite II housing uses an interchangeable lens port system. Each separately available port is designed for a certain range or style of lens, so you can easily pick and choose your ports to suit your favourite or go-to lenses.

Robust Build Quality

Made from high-quality polyurethane, the housing itself offers excellent protection from bumps and knocks. The controls and hardware are made from stainless steel and hard-anodised aluminium respectively. Carefully sealed and coupled with the robust housing body, the Elite II is designed to give you long-lasting protection, even when used regularly in salt water.
