Just a couple of days after Canon announced the New 5D mark IV camera we are proud to announce the NEW SUBAL 5D Mark IV underwater housing. Compatible with all Subal ports and accessories that every one of our housing has we bring some new improvements in ergonomic, light weight and all camera button functions.

With the SUBAL CD5 MIV for the Canon EOS 5D mark IV, SUBAL offers an aluminum housing for the latest development of the compact full-frame SLRs from Canon, SUBAL without restrictions in the angle! There is no limit to the creativity of the underwater photographers.

The ergonomic SUBAL design and arrangement of all important elements of the housing allows the camera easy operation without letting go of the handle. The camera is mounted on a special sled, to secure the camera with precision into the housing. This allows a faster and secure mounting. A 4 mm O ring and the SUBAL Quick Lock closure system, prevents accidental crushing of the O-ring and ensures maximum safety.

The Subal monitor window, provides a glare-free view of the brilliant image of the camera monitor, and supports ideally the HD-video function of the camera.Pilot lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe.

Only high quality materials are used to produce Subal housings. A precise manufacturing process followed by the surface protection finish, to conform the standard quality level that you get in every SUBAL product.

SUBAL offers for this housing model, 4 different search systems:
the standard viewfinder slimmed the viewfinder image, so that it can fully be overlooked despite diving mask. The GS 180 and the 45° viewfinder offer a view in size approximately corresponding to the camera's viewfinder, with the insight of the GS-180 horizontally, the insight of the WS-45 under 45 °.
The new Prism Finder PS-30 shows the camera monitor image at the same size at a viewing angle of 30 °. The insight is with normal reading distance, which is why the PS-30 ideal for video recording specialy as this camera have 4K video. All Subal viewfinders systems are interchangeable and can be mounted easily by the user.
