Castelnuovo del Garda (VR), Italia, November 18 - 2019

ISOTECNIC SRL is pleased to announce the launch of its new underwater camera housing for the powerful Canon PowerShot G7X Mark III, 100% crafted and made in Italy, that will capture beautiful photos underwater.

The durable, corrosion-resistant anodized aluminum body in its signature red colour weighs only 770 grams. It’s designed to give photographers use of all buttons and functionalities of the Canon PowerShot G7X Mark III.

The compact Isotta housing offers an ergonomic interface with all aluminum controls placed within easy reach of the user’s hand. To make the interface even more convenient all function icons are laser engraved into the housing and the buttons, so that photographers always know which functions they are using – a unique feature of Isotta housings. Its unique single handed open/close mechanism makes it easy to access the camera.

The back housing features a large window of coated, scratch-resistant glass for the camera display. Different to compact housings of other brands the ensure back housing is detachable from the front body making it easier for the user to access the camera. The housing comes with two solid feet provided stable footing on
the camera table and avoiding scratching of the red anodization.

Another unique feature of Isotta housings are the double O-rings on all buttons, dials and removable parts providing a guaranteed watertight seal. But just to be sure there is a red LED moisture alarm inside the housing, powered by a battery that is replaceable by the user. Working depth of this housing is 100 metres.

Available starting November 2019, the housing will carry a retail price of 950.00 including VAT.

The housing features the easy and secure opening-closing mechanism that Isotta is famous for. Like all Isotta housings the back of the housing is opened via a circular dial that not only is easy to open and close, it also features a fail-safe locking mechanism. This way of accessing the housing is known as being the easiest and safest opening mechanism amongst all brands and the only true single-handed opening system.

PORT, CLOSE-UP AND WIDE-ANGLE LENSES

A removable flat port is fitted thanks to markers and a bayonet connection to Canon Powershot G7X Mark III housing.
