New Recsea Housing for Canon G1 X Mark III
By Joseph Tepper, August 6, 2018 @ 09:18 AM (EST)

Recsea has announced that they will begin shipping their housing for the Canon G1 X Mark III compact camera soon. Recsea's WHC-G1XMkIII housing is constructed from aluminum and features a fixed lens port with an M67 thread for adding wet lenses—a must when shooting with a compact camera.

In term of ergonomics, the camera provides access to both control dials, which can be customized to suit the photographer’s needs. As well, there’s an optional Airlock Vacuum System. The housing is depth rated to 100 meters (328 feet).

For more information, consult the press release below or visit the Recsea website. The housings will begin shipping in mid-September.
