Base Sport2

Shooting underwater can make for incredible images—just ask Benjamin Von Wong. The problem is, many times, you can end up shelling out more for the underwater housing than your actual camera gear cost you.

That might not be the case much longer though. AquaTech, a company long known for its quality underwater housing equipment, has released a new base model that starts out under $1000.

As the name suggests, the AquaTech Base Sport doesn’t feature all of the fancy features and capabilities, but for relative affordability, it’s more than enough to at least get your DSLR underwater and shooting.

Base Sport1

The Base Sports features a pistol grip with separate buttons for focus and shutter, a standard 10 meter (33 foot) depth rating, quick release safety clips, a custom back plate for custom button alignment with various camera models and a P65 lens port that will fit some of the more popular lenses out there. It also features support for all of AquaTech’s external accessories.
