INON

The concept is Fast and Smooth

The Canon EOS 70D is equipped with groundbreaking AF technology "Dual Pixel CMOS AF" where each and single pixel on the CMOS sensor is consists of two independent photodiodes enabling you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus.
The INON X-2 for EOS70D housing is built on the concept of "Fast and Smooth" involving professional photographers in development. Buttons and levers on the housing are carefully located as much as like camera's control itself for intuitive operation underwater. INON offers an underwater camera system in total with S-TTL Auto strobe, viewfinder, MRS Port, LED flashlight and wide range of arm products all from INON for fast and smooth underwater photography/videography.

Lightweight and Compact Ultraprecise Cast Aluminum Body

The X-2 for EOS70D is made from corrosion resistance aluminum alloy by ultraprecise cast manufacturing technique to fuse design, weight and durability in higher dimension. The cast manufacturing technique enables thin body plate with complicated curved design which is not possible with machining. Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy body has acquired reliability, durability and controllability even in severe underwater.

Stress-free Control Layout to Capture the Moment

Cast manufacturing allows flexible design to put various ingenuities for trouble-free underwater operation as like controlling camera on land, where your right thumb and mid finger securely hold a housing without effort, index finger can naturally access to the shutter release lever and aperture or shutter speed can be easily adjusted without seeing those dials during checking composition through the viewfinder. The INON X-2 for EOS70D pursues intimate controllability to "capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography/videography.

* [AF area selection mode button], [Multi-controller], and [Multi function lock switch] are not accessible.

Proven and Reliable Waterproof Design

Buttons, dial levers are not directly attached on the aluminum alloy housing body but installed via brass bearings to prevent the aluminum housing body from galling caused by sliding of buttons and movement of dial levers to secure waterproof property. Only minimum parts replacement can refresh these controls even you need to change bearings. Buttons and dial levers carry oil bearing type INON yellow O-rings to prevent accidental flooding due to lack of grease. Also their size is thicker than required to enhance waterproof property.

Proven and Reliable Waterproof Design

Fully Compatible with "S-TTL" Auto Strobe System

Flooding-free four Optical D Connectors are equipped as standard feature to benefit simple yet reliable "S-TTL" Auto shooting simply by plug-in Optical D Cable Type L. It is important to effectively transmit built-in flash light to fiber optics to benefit accuracy of S-TTL Auto. The X-2 for EOS70D housing is equipped with a mirror inside to induce built-in flash light to Optical D Connectors properly to provide stable and accurate S-TTL Auto exposure control.

Durable Coating & Corrosion Suppression Unit

The housing body is coated with corrosion-resistance and wear-resistant material.
The corrosion suppression unit attached on the bottom of the housing is made from zinc preventing the housing from galvanic corrosion as the unit oxidizes before the housing.

Leak Sensor with Red LED & Buzzer

The housing offers a leak sensor circuit as standard feature to warn you with red LED and buzzer in case of accidental flooding.

Interchangeable Four Viewfinders

INON offers four different finder units; [Finder Window], [Pick-up Finder 2], [45°Viewfinder], [Straight Viewfinder] to accommodate with various subjects/shooting conditions as like selecting camera lens.

Straight Viewfinder

Straight Viewfinder UnitThe Straight Viewfinder Unit extends eye-point of camera's viewfinder without changing image size (x1.0) to see all finder image area even through a mask without vignetting. The eye piece is parallel to camera's viewfinder which helps to extend working distance.

45° Viewfinder

45°Viewfinder UnitThe 45° Viewfinder Unit extends eye-point of camera's viewfinder without changing image size (x1.0) to see all finder image area even through a mask without vignetting. The eye piece is tilted at 45° which is remarkably useful for low angled subject like a goby on sand area, and 360° rotatable to suit to low angle shooting with vertical composition.

Pick-up Finder 2

Pick-up Finder 2 UnitThe Pick-up Finder Unit 2 is a compact viewfinder practically extends eye point without vignetting even through a mask (x 0.75).

Finder Window

Finder Window UnitThe Finder Window Unit is budget pricing "waterproof window" without extending eye point nor changing viewfinder image size. (Only center part of viewfinder image is visible)

Wide Variety of Lens Port to Support from Ultra macro to Fish-eye Imaging

Wide variety of lens system are supported such as "EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM", "EF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM" for macro, "EF8-15mm F4L Fisheye USM" for fish-eye imaging, video oriented "EF-S18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM", "EF-S10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM" and so on. All compatible lens ports use optical lens (multi-coated) to exploit high image quality captured by EOS 70D.
With INON unique MRS Port system turning lens barrel by magnetic attraction where you can control focusing without mechanical stress as like to adjust focusing by focusing ring directly on land.
Off course INON "UFL-MR130 EFS60 Underwater Micro Fisheye Lens" is compatible so you can shoot unique footage with EOS HD movie function.
