Subal Leica SL Underwater Housing

With the SUBAL SL for the Leica SL, SUBAL offers Leica cameras an aluminum housing for the latest development of the compact full frame camera.

Subal Leica SL Underwater Housing

Our housing provides access to all the functions of the Leica SL. 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 of the camera monitor. Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual high-quality that is common to all SUBAL products.

Subal designers and production staff accept nothing but perfection in producing underwater housings, using only the best, top grade materials with “handmade“ quality control. Anyone using a SUBAL Leica SL housing can feel that passion and no-compromise commitment to quality - down to the smallest part. Less obvious at first glance, are the many improved features built into all housings, innovations that have grown over decades of field and manufacturing experience. Only housings designed and built hand-in-hand with the photographer deserve the “handmade“ label. SUBAL quality wins hands down!


Every Subal housing is milled from a solid block of aluminum. This prevents unwanted air pockets and ensures absolute tightness. All housing parts and accessories are made of this same alloy, which is characterized by a high degree of seawater resistance. Additional heat treatment increases strength and hardness by about 30% and reduces the inevitable underwater deformations due to depth. Guaranteed are shafts, screws, and many other parts made of high-alloy nickel-chromium coated steel. Only high-quality engineering plastics are used - for the best durability and longevity.

Surface Coating

We ensure that each housing is built for maximum durability: “hard-coating” produces wear and scratch resistance plus corrosion resistance in all aluminum parts to a superior level through a tough protective layer (up to 10 times that of an anodic coating). As additional wear-protection we add a high-quality, multi-layer powder coating.

Technical Data:

Seawater-resistant aluminum alloy worked from a solid block. Hard-coating and corrosion treatment is applied to the surface of the housing. In addition 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.
