    The INON 「X-2 for EOS60D」housing is exclusively designed for 「EOS60D」, built on the concept of 『Capture the Moment』 and further refined its stress-free control layout for intuitive operation underwater thanks to joint development with professional photographers. 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 to capture the decisive moment.

Product features
  • Lightweight and compact ultraprecise cast aluminum body
    The X-2 for EOS60D 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 realize unique features for trouble-free imaging, where your right thumb and mid finger securely hold a housing without effort, index finger can naturally access to the shutter release lever and adjusting aperture or shutter speed can be easily obtained without seeing those dials during checking composition through its viewfinder. The INON X-2 for EOS60D pursues intimate controllability to “capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography.

    *For the concept of 『Capture the Moment』, 「Quick Control Button」, 「Multi Controller」 which requires to check the LCD pane, and 「Quick Control Dial lock release button」 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.

  • 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 EOS60D 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.

  • Interchangeable four viewfinders
    INON offers four different finder units to serve every needs. You can remove/install a finder unit by yourself with supplied dedicated tool to support you to choose appropriate finder unit depending on subject/shooting condition.

  • Wide variety of lens port to support from ultra macro to fish-eye imaging
    Wide variety of lens system are supported including newly released Canon 「EF8-15mm F4L Fisheye USM」 lens, macro lenses such as 「EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM」「EF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM」 and so on. All compatible lens ports are made from optical lens (multi-coated) to exploit high quality image captured by EOS60D. 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.
