The Housing

The Aquatica A7R V housing is one of the smallest yet most ergonomic housings on the market. Its design focuses on enabling users to concentrate on image creation rather than system operation. Controls are self-centering and spring-loaded, making it easy for users to insert the camera into the housing without the need for alignment.

The camera is highly customizable, with buttons mapped for various purposes, providing users with easy access to their settings. Additionally, Aquatica now includes its field-proven Surveyor Vacuum System (Pump, Valve, and Sensor) as standard.
