SEA&SEA Announces the Availability of New MDX-D600 Housing
(DiverWire) SEA&SEA is pleased to announce the availability of its latest dSLR housing for the underwater market, the MDX-D600.
The Nikon D600 FX-format camera features 24.3mp full-frame images, high-quality full HD 1080p video at 30fps, 5.5fps continuous shooting, super fast framing and focus with a 39-point AF system, low-light performance with ISO 100-6400 and more. The D600 HD-SLR is optimized for full-frame shooting and is compact and lightweight for ease of travel and packability, ideal for underwater photographers.
The MDX-D600 is feature-rich and precision engineered just as its MDX predecessors, but in a more compact and lighter weight design. The MDX-D600 allows for operation of the D600’s essential controls and built-in flash while underwater. “Having taken my first look at the new SEA&SEA MDX-D600 housing, it is patently obvious that they (SEA&SEA) continue to provide underwater photographers with the superb craftsmanship and efficiency in design that has been the hallmark of this brand since the 1970’s,” said underwater photographer Andrew Sallmon, of Andrew Sallmon Marine Photography.
The housing is compatible with both the VF180 and VF45 prism viewfinders (offering 1.2x magnification), is depth rated to 100m/330ft, comes standard with a built-in leak sensor, and is equipped with two fiber-optic cable ports. There are also two bulkheads available: the first to accept a YS Converter or manual wiring harness; and the second for an optional HDMI output for an external HD monitor.
The MDX-D600 is compatible with SEA&SEA’s NX series ports, digital strobes such as the YS-01, YS-02, YS-110α, YS-D1 and YS-250Pro, and many SEA&SEA SLR accessories.
The MDX-D600 (#SS-06165) has an MSRP of $3,399.00. It is also offered as a package with a manual (2-pin) wiring harness (#SS-06165A) at $3,499.00.
