This housing fits both the R5 and R6, however there are some slight modifications to the housing controls that we make for it to work perfectly with the R6.
The R6 also has a different trigger cable.
Note, the MODE button control on the housing only works with the R5. This is because the R6 has a mode dial on the camera, rather than the button setup on the R5.
Therefore the mode cannot be changed with the R6 inside the housing.
If we set up the housing for the R6 the housing can be easily reconfigured to suit the R5 if you choose to upgrade cameras in the future.
CNC machined from a single piece of billet aluminium then anodised and painted. All buttons and hardware are 316 stainless steel, providing superior corrosion resistance.
Being an aluminium housing it acts as a giant heat sink to assist in managing overheating of the camera compared with a plastic housing like our competitors. It by no means overcomes the overheating issues of the R5 camera, however will manage heat better than a plastic housing.
The R5 housing utilises our ‘STANDARD’ port system which fits lenses up to 105mm diameter.
The front element in our ports is replaceable in less than 30 seconds by simply unscrewing the locking ring and dropping in a replacement acrylic screen we offer for purchase. So no more spending hours buffing scratched ports!
Note, our STANDARD port reference chart is not applicable to this housing who using EF lenses.
If you are using EF adapter lenses with a basic flat port, you will need to allow for the adapter in any length measurements.
For example, a Canon 24mm f1.4ii measures in at 87mm from the EF mount to the front of the lens.
The RF-EF adapter adds 24mm to the length, so the total length is 111mm, so you would need the S-120 flat port.
However, when using the EF-RF adapter, the housing is compatible with our zoom and focus control ports designed for our RED and BMPCC4K/6K housings. As they share the same focal plane distance measurement. So if you already own one of our RED or BMPCC4K/6K housings, and have ports with focus and zoom control then they will work with the R5 housing.
