The housing provides access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical controls. The AD800 housing is the first of its kind from Aquatica to offer access to the Fn and DOF preview buttons. This is accomplished via a unique toggle lever. Various custom functions can be assigned to each of these buttons.

The AD800 has dual ergonomic hand grips for easy underwater handling.

The housing is constructed from aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel for durability. It is machined on advanced 5-axis computer-assisted machines, then protected by anodizing to North American military specifications for further protection. The housing features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a durable powder coating.

Comes with a 9.25″ Megadome port and the standard viewfinder which is a coated Galileo-type eye piece that gives a bright and full view.

The Aqua View 45 Finder is available for an extra $40/day.
