The cover of the housing is extremely thick at φ3.2 and uses two oil-impregnated O-rings to resist flooding.

【Optional Accessories】
2Port with the 28LD mount base (Black only)
(The 28LD mount base allows for quick changes between INON lenses such as close-up lenses or wide conversion lenses.)
Projecting diffuser plate (to lessen vignetting when using the internal strobe)
The power button is changed to φ12.
When shooting 4K video with APSO-RX100M5, the battery gets depleted quickly. We have to turn the power on/off each time. For that reason, we changed the power button from φ6 to φ12 and it got easy to finger.
Movie button is easy to push
Movie button is placed in the shadow of the control dial, because it was pushed unexpectedly. But it gets in the way of shooting when we take a video mainly. So we placed it in front of the control dial and changed it φ12, and made it easier to push. Please note that it is easy to get tangled to strings etc.
Waterproof is the most important item.
The cover of the housing is extremely thick at φ3.2 and uses two oil-impregnated O-rings to resist flooding. It has been the same specification since beginning with the first model ever sold. Frequent and regular maintenance will allow worry-free operation.
If it comes with 28mm wide conversion, there is no vignette.
Other company housings have to zoom 30mm because it causes vignetting if 24mm lens comes with 28mm wide conversion. But APOS-RX100M5 is an exquisite design and causes no vignetting. The best wide effect is provided with 24mm lens just after turning on. (When use UWL-H100 M67 Type1. Even if it is that image size is L: 20M, aspect ratio 3:2, and image quality is RAW. UML-H100 M67 Type2 causes a little vignetting. Dome unit is no related with vignetting.)
Flip Lens Adapter M67
It can be connected/disconnected a close up lens etc. in an instant by using a flip lens adapter M67. It also can use a large close up lens and wide conversion lens. But in the flip lens adapter by being different to M67 screw and 28LD port, UWL-H100 M67 causes vagnetting. A large close up lens also causes vegnetting.
28LD port (Optional)
It is a port which can equip quickly with "the lens of 28LD series” of INON. This does not have a difference purchase setup at the time of body purchase.
It becomes an additional purchase.
A color is only Black.
Controls are sealed by two sliding O-rings.
We have used two sliding O-rings to seal a mode dial, a control ring, a shutter, stroboscope ON/OFF, and a control dial.
The shaft has a polished finish.
Beginning with the first model ever sold, the APSG-DP2, ACQUAPAZZA has polished finishing all their shafts.
Grippy control wheel
The thickness of camera and projection of control wheel are inconsistent. Therefore it sometimes slips when you try to turn wheel. The solution is to apply tension and absorb the certain variation of wheel. Because the gum that turns a wheel has a radial ditch and the wheel (projections) matches the gum (pits), it is difficult to slip.
To reduce vignetting caused by use of the internal strobe, we suggest using the protruding diffuser plate
(sold separately).
You will get large amounts of vignetting in three situations: the diameter of the port is too large; the port is too close to the window of the internal strobe; and when the subject is too close to the optical glass. In order to lessen this vignetting we developed the protruding diffuser plate. Thanks to this, even when the subject is as close as one centimeter to the glass, the light from the internal strobe will “wrap around” the subject.
Extended the interval of the push button
ACQUAPAZZA used angle arrangement technology and extended the interval of the button. Although it may appear that the buttons are not all facing in the same direction, they have been designed for optimum ease of use and this in no way indicates a product defect.
M10 Mount
The M10 mount has been expanded so that even without an external hand grip, two matching strobes or LED lights may be attached. Please use only genuine ACQUAPAZZA M10 ball joints (L50 and L80 available).
Monitor Hood Rail
When close to the surface or when the sun is exceptionally bright, contrast on the monitor will weaken and be difficult to read. Attaching the PRO MARKII UNZ-2603 underwater monitor (sold separately by UN) greatly enhances visibility of the monitor. The device uses a convex lens to improve visibility, to the extent that even when objects nearby are difficult to see, the words on the monitor can be clearly discerned.
Comes in 15 colors
Choose from hard alumite casings in 15 rich colors. Stock Colors: Black, Red, Turquoise Color options (After the order, you wait two weeks.) : Violet, Gray, Bronze, Green, Silver, Gold, Orange, Pink, Bright Yellow, Champagne, Light Green, Blue
Optical cable adapter
The attached optical cable adapter mounts two φ7 of SEA&SEA and OLYMPUS. One an "optical fiber two-hole rubber bush" is attached. If purchased by one addition, the strobe by INON corresponds to four sets. The sync cord does not protrude and therefore does not interfere with the port glass.
