SEALUX 4K CC1DC
Housing for Canon EOS 1D-C
The EOS 1D-C establishes a new benchmark as a trailblazing, high-performance multimedia reflex camera. Based on the EOS 1D-X it was optimized for videography, capable of shooting in True 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels), featuring innovative video functions such as Canon Log Gamma. To give videographers the best possible support, now and for the first time Sealux presents a housing which allows simultaneous manual zoom and sharpness adjustment by means of control dials on the left and right hand side. This way there are no limits to shooting creative videos of the highest quality.
We have designed the tailor-made CC1DC housing so that you can make full use of the Canon 1D-C under water, too. Safety and easy operability with minimal dimensions characterize the CC1DC housing. Large O-rings, doubly sealed shafts and even quadruply sealed buttons provide the highest degree of safety. The camera is precision-guided along a special slide and fitted within the front part of the housing, thereby excluding the possibility of installation errors. When swapping memory cards, the camera remains on the slide inside the housing.
The housing features the following standard functions: ON-OFF, shutter release, AF-On, front and back thumb wheel, manual zoom, manual focus as well LCD panel illumination buttons, WB, a plus-minus key, ISO, M-Fn button, Live Image, AE lock button, Area Selection Button, Mode, AF-Drive, Flash Adjustment, Menu, Info, Playback button, Magnify/Reduce button, Erase button, Protect button, Card Selection button, Q. Menu button and SET.
The housing is made of a seawater-resistant aluminium alloy, CNC milled out of a monoblock, anodized in black and powder coated on the outside, too.
The housing has an M6 thread in order to fit, for example, a small light on top of the housing or our new HDMI monitor for comfortable underwater video shoots. To connect the HDMI monitor, the housing features a special cable terminal (optional). The basic version comes with our LD viewfinder. Ports must be ordered separately.
Three windows allow easy control of all settings. The window for the back-of-camera LCD panel is made of scratch-proof mineral glass.
An S6 flash socket with fixed contact pins (C5 possible) is fitted as standard. Optionally, a second S6 flash socket (or a C5 for Nikononos compatible flashes) can be fitted.
Three spring-loaded locks with safety catches keep the housing locked with a high clamping force.
The grip rail features two T-pieces to accommodate flash arms. It is mounted at the front, is adjustable and detachable for transport.
