Subal Underwater Housing for Leica SL

SKU # sub.16LSL


Subal Underwater Housing for Leica SL

Camera, lens, port, are not included; shown for illustrative purposes only.

The Subal housing provides access to all the functions of the Leica M.  The ergonomic SUBAL housing design and arrangement of all the key controls allows easy camera operation without letting go of the grip.  The camera is fitted on a special cradle which enables a precise and faster, more secure mounting.  Threaded holes at the base allow the attachment of a tray.  Focusing lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe. The monitor window provides a glare-free and high-contrast view.   Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual high-quality that is common to all SUBAL products.

Technical Data:

Housing is machined from seawater-resistant aluminum alloy worked from a solid block.  Hard-coating and corrosion treatment is applied to the surface of the housing.  3 layers of powder-coating paint is applied to give the housing the Subal color and unique finish.  All parts are made of hard-anodized light alloy, acid-resistant stainless steel and high-quality plastics to cope with the marine environment.

Width x height x depth: Approx. 312 x 147 x 187 mm (with handles, w/o ports)

Strobe connections:

  • 3 x 5-pin connector
  • 2 x Sea and Sea optical ports 


Use Nikonos and Sea & Sea Lenses

In addition to using Leica lenses within the housing & port, you have the choice to use Nikonos and Sea & Sea underwater lenses.  The Subal Adaptor for Leica with Nikonos is mounted rather than a port, and the underwater lens is then mounted to the adaptor.
