Fantasea Extends Line Of Canon Housing Accessories With S90 Lens Adapter

Sony, Canon and Fujifilm are among the major camera manufactures that offer affordable underwater housings for select models of their cameras. For these mega-companies the housings are only a tiny part of their business, which means they don't always make the most accessory friendly housings. 

This has been especially problematic for discerning photographers who purchased the powerful Canon G11 or S90 camera and housing combo, only to learn that third party accessory wet lenses were not compatible with their system.

Fantasea has lead the charge in solving this problem, offering a set of optic accessories to allow the use of wet lenses with the Canon housings.  They made a specific Bigeye wide-angle conversion lens to fit directly over the unique port thread size of the Canon G11 housing as well as an adapter to use macro lenses designed for more standard port sizes.  They also designed a holder to store the lenses when they are not in use.


Following the success of the G11 accessories, they have just announced an adapter that will allow you to use the G11 wet lenses on the S90 Canon housing, the WP-DC35. The s90 is among the most powerful point and shoots on the market, and the most popular housing for it is Canon's proprietary option. The combination is  much more desirable when you can add accessories wet lenses to it. 
 

We have recently received the optics and will be providing a hands on look at the Fantasea G series housing accessories that you can now use with the G11 housing or the S90 housing.  For more information you can visit Fantasea's webpage which has details on the G series wide angle conversion lens and the new adapter for the S90 housing.
