Isotta Unveils Housing for Canon EOS R6 Mark II
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 2, 2024 @ 07:30 PM (EST)

Isotta is now shipping its housing for the Canon EOS R6 Mark II. The second iteration of Canon’s enthusiast-level full-frame camera features a new 24.2MP sensor, an upgraded autofocus system borrowing AI-powered tracking from the R3, and improved video, including oversampled 4K/60p 10-bit 4:2:2 capture with no crop and the ability to output 6K RAW to an external recorder.

Isotta’s housing for the R6 Mark II offers a similarly comprehensive set of features to its predecessor housing from three years ago. You get the same anodized aluminum construction (and signature Isotta red paint), integrated adjustable handles, one-handed open/close, and double O-ring seals on buttons and removable parts. There are two zoom knobs (one for RF lenses and one for EF lenses), a large-bore M24 port supporting HDMI 2.0 output to a recorder/monitor like the Atomos Ninja V and two M16 ports, plus two fiber-optic ports—but the trigger is an optional extra. It’s also possible to order the housing with Nikonos N5 or S6 bulkheads if you prefer electrical triggering.

The housing is available now from retailers such as Backscatter, priced at $3,390.
