When using the 28LD Mount Base XQ1 attached on "WP-XQ1/XQ2" without any lens, the camera system will have buoyancy. Adjust total underwater weight by using other accessories to get slightly negative buoyancy to avoid accidental rapid ascent.

(*3)
When using "on land", vignetting is observed at zoom wide end even without an attachment lens (no vignetting underwater). Use zoom middle to telephoto side on land to avoid vignetting.

■ Arm System Compatibility with E-M5 Mark II/PT-EP13 (*1) ■

Grip Base M1
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 605 3

D Holder
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 431 8

Shoe Base (*8)
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 356 4

Grip Base D4
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 430 1


The "Grip Base M1" is a base arm specifically designed for midsize underwater housing like micro four thirds digital SLR. The "Grip Base M1" is firmly attached on a housing with two tripod screws and equipped legs on the base provide stable placement of combined housing. As "Grip Base D4" (*9), wide variety of INON adapters/bases is compatible with the "Grip Base M1" and easy to set-up multiple lighting system with dual strobe configuration by attaching extra "D Holder".

The compact light arm "Shoe Base" (*8) is directly attached on the housing accessory shoe.

(*8)
When installing a strobe/LED light via INON "Shoe Base" on the "PT-EP13", the camera system will have neutral buoyancy. Adjust total underwater weight by using other accessories to get slightly negative buoyancy to avoid accidental rapid ascent.

(*9)
The "D Holder" of the "Grip Base D4" is for left side use only. When attaching on the right hand side of the housing, space between the D Holder and housing becomes extremely narrow and prevents you to hold the housing directly.

■ X-2 for EOS70D ■

The Canon EOS70D is equipped with groundbreaking AF technology "Dual Pixel CMOS AF" where each and single pixel on the CMOS sensor is consists of two independent photodiodes enabling you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus.
The INON X-2 for EOS70D housing is built on the concept of "Fast and Smooth" involving professional photographers in development. Buttons and levers on the housing are carefully located as much as like camera's control itself for intuitive operation underwater. 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 for fast and smooth underwater photography/videography.

■ Product features ■

●Lightweight and Compact Ultraprecise Cast Aluminum Body
The X-2 for EOS70D 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 put various ingenuities for trouble-free underwater operation as like controlling camera on land, where your right thumb and mid finger securely hold a housing without effort, index finger can naturally access to the shutter release lever and aperture or shutter speed can be easily adjusted without seeing those dials during checking composition through the viewfinder. The INON X-2 for EOS70D pursues intimate controllability to "capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography/videography.
* [AF area selection mode button], [Multi-controller], and [Multi function lock switch] 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 EOS70D 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; [Finder Window], [Pick-up Finder 2], [45°Viewfinder], [Straight Viewfinder] to accommodate with various subjects/shooting conditions as like selecting camera lens.

●Wide Variety of Lens Port to Support from Ultra macro to Fish-eye Imaging
Wide variety of lens system are supported such as "EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM", "EF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM" for macro, "EF8-15mm F4L Fisheye USM" for fish-eye imaging, video oriented "EF-S18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM", "EF-S10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM" and so on. All compatible lens ports use optical lens (multi-coated) to exploit high image quality captured by EOS70D. 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. Off course INON "UFL-MR130 EFS60 Underwater Micro Fisheye Lens" is compatible so you can shoot unique footage with EOS HD movie function.
