Sea & Sea MDX-40D Housing


Part #: SS-06133

Product Overview:

The Sea & Sea MDX-40D housing for the Canon EOS 40D camera brings the power of professional SLR imaging underwater

The MDX-40D is made of a tough corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy with a hard alumite coating for extra rigidity. It's durable and ready to stand up to tough use. Its snug design keeps it compact and lightweight, and its leather-toned outer surface reflects the high quality of the camera it houses inside.

The MDX-40D comes standard with two type-N strobe connectors (2-pin and 6-pin) that are compatible with the popular SEA & SEA Series-YS strobes. The 6-pin connector accepts the optional TTL converter for Canon cameras that enables TTL flash adjustment for accurately lit flash photography. The MDX-40D is also compatible with SEA & SEA NX ports used by the NX housing series.

The MDX-40D: all the quality of film underwater with the flexibility and convenience of digital imaging.

The included type-N 6-pin connector accepts the optional TTL converter for Canon cameras. The converter works with a SEA&SEA strobe to provide automatic TTL flash adjustment.

* To use two SEA&SEA Series-YS strobes with the factory-equipped type-N connectors, you must use the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N 03470.


  • The optional TTL converter for Canon cameras enables automatic TTL flash adjustment.
  • The tough aluminum body is compact, very close in size to the camera's dimensions, and is easy to hold stable underwater.
  • The front and rear halves of the body are both made of a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy improved and enhanced for better rigidity and handling.
  • The pickup viewfinder a key element for digital SLR photography magnifies 0.66x for clearer framing.
  • The new shutter lever is sensitive and provides clear feedback for the finger.
  • Two type-N strobe connectors (2-pin and 6-pin) come standard with the housing.
  • The housing is compatible with NX lens ports and other NX accessories.
  • The housing controls provide most of the Canon EOS 40D features underwater.
  • The quick shoe makes it easy to insert and remove the camera.
  • The port lock mechanism prevents the port from coming free.
  • The locking latches prevent accidental housing opening.
  • The leak sensor tells you immediately if water gets into the housing.

Don't forget to buy a spare tube of Sea & Sea's silicone grease.
