Inon Launches Underwater Camera Housing for Canon EOS D6


Inon has unveiled underwater camera housing, X-2, for the Canon EOS D6. It is the first camera housing by the company manufactured for full-frame DSLR cameras.

According to the company, the housing body is made from corrosion resistance aluminium alloy by ultra precise cast manufacturing technique In addition, the buttons and dial levers are not directly attached on the aluminium alloy housing body but installed via brass bearings. This helps preventing the aluminium housing body from galling caused by sliding of buttons and movement of dial levers.
