INON X-2 Housing for Canon 6D
The Canon EOS 6D is Canon’s most compact full-frame digital SLR delivering incredible image quality with many of advanced features including newly designed 20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor.
The INON X-2 for EOS6D housing is built on the concept of “Professional and Lightweight” for professional image quality, high mobility underwater and superb cost effectiveness in compact and lightweight body. Buttons and levers on the housing are carefully located as much as like camera’s control itself for intuitive operation underwater. You never miss shooting opportunity. INON offers an underwater camera system in total with strobe, viewfinder, MRS Port, LED flashlight and wide range of arm products all from INON for fast and smooth underwater photography/videography.
The X-2 for EOS6D 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.
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 EOS6D pursues intimate controllability to “capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography/videography.
* [Quick Control button], [Multi-controller], and [Multi function lock switch] are not accessible.
Equipped with a built-in circuit to convert sync signal transmitted from camera’s hot shoe to optical signal. The unit triggers an external strobe by LEDs underneath of the Optical D Connector. Flooding-free fiber optics connection is supported to benefit simple yet reliable external strobe shooting simply by plug-in “Optical D Cable Type L”. Different length of Optical D Cable products like “Optical D Cable L Type L (68cm/27in)” or “Optical D Cable LL Type L (110cm/43in)” expand application of strobe shooting such as “off-camera strobe shooting”.
The Optical Flash Trigger converts electrical strobe trigger signal from camera hot-shoe into LED flash (once) but does not support TTL Auto exposure or pre-flash system. Compatible flash mode of an external strobe is [External Auto] and [Manual]. When using INON Z-240, D-2000 series, S-2000 or D-180 series, it is necessary to deactivate Advanced Cancel Circuit (push and lock the switch/insert the magnet) to accommodate with non pre-flash type camera.
The 45° Viewfinder Unit extends eye-point of camera’s viewfinder without changing image size (x1.0) to see almost all finder image and display on the camera’s viewfinder even through a mask. 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.
The Straight Viewfinder Unit extends eye-point of camera’s viewfinder without changing image size (x1.0) to see almost all finder image area even through a mask. The eye piece is parallel to camera’s viewfinder which helps to extend working distance.
