So, you want to take your Leica on some underwater adventures? Well, now you can, all while keeping the same German aesthetic that likely tempted you to buy your camera in the first place.
What you’re looking at is a new Leica M underwater camera housing from underwater photography specialists Subal.
Details on how exactly the housing works or what it’s compatible with aren’t yet public, but from the looks of it, it would operate as almost any other underwater housing does, with dedicated buttons on the back for controlling settings and the ability to add different ports for various lenses. It also appears there’s a little LED alarm light for when a leak is detected.
Considering the housing is shaped like a Leica M camera and even features Leica’s signature script on the top, it’s hard to imagine there isn’t some sort of licensing deal going on between the two companies.
The Subal Leica M underwater housing sells for €5,500 (roughly $6,200) and can be ordered via Subal’s online store.
