Fantasea Line, distributor of the world's most popular and affordable underwater photographic products, announces the release of the F350D waterproof camera housing for the Digital Canon Rebel XT/350D. The Fantasea F350D is a compact, lightweight, injection molded polycarbonate housing with ergonomically designed handles, making it easy to hold and use. The F350D's interchangeable port system accommodates a wide variety of SLR lenses, allowing photographers to capture the widest variety of superior underwater images.
The Fantasea F350D is more than just an underwater camera housing since it provides protection for the Canon Rebel XT/350D against damage from rain, snow, dust, sand and dirt. It is a valuable tool for many commercial, industrial, and medical applications, because it is resistant to most liquids and sprays.
The F350D housing features a unique o-ring and gasket seal and is rated to a depth of 200 feet (60m). The main seal between front and back halves is a compression gasket.

Once inside the housing the stainless steel latching buckles on the back door are snapped shut, sealing the system with a sound watertight seal.
