The EVO III Water Housing builds on the popularity of the original EVO Water Housing and delivers a refined design which is compatible with the entire Canon EOS 1D X range of cameras (including the 1D C).
EVO III was designed to provide the most natural user experience when using the Canon 1DX Mark III in the water. Whether it be for surf photography or fashion, shooting stills or video, the EVO III supports your workflow and lets you concentrate on getting the job done.
The EVO III Water Housing supports our interchangeable P/PD Lens Port system and is compatible with all current zoom gears. The backplate features easier to use push button and dial controls that won't fatigue your fingers. 2 self-locating stainless steel dowels on the inside of the backplate help with setup and ensure you get precision alignment every time. An external rubber eyepiece provides more comfort when using the viewfinder as well as helping to reduce stray light which helps you to continue to track your subject in high contrast lighting environments.
Never miss a shot with 2 x E2 shutter buttons positioned on the EVO III, so you can shoot in landscape or portrait orientation with ease, just like you would with the camera in your hands. A manual shutter button is also included for more flexibility. The M3 pistol can also be used with the EVO III for those moments when you need to fire the housing with one hand, or add stability to your shooting and move your center of gravity underneath the housing.
The EVO III ships with a standard side handle mounted to the left-hand side of the housing and a “palm stopper” grip mounted to the right-hand side. You can use the housing with or without these grips and swap positions as needed. The tools required are included with the EVO III. An additional purchase of a second side handle is possible by contacting staff directly.
