Success story
made in Austria.

Since 1989, SEACAM has been ful­fil­ling the wishes of committed upcoming pho­to­graph­ers as well as those of demanding pro­fes­sio­nals with an inno­va­ti­ve spirit and state-of-the-art tech­no­lo­gy. Now we invite you to join us on an exciting journey back to the very beginning.

1989

The first
steps.

Harald Hordosch, a pas­sio­na­te pho­to­gra­pher with a fasci­na­ti­on for diving and craft­s­manship, lays the foun­da­ti­on of SEACAM in Austria and launches the first aluminum housing series with various access­ories for the Yashica AF camera.

1991

Minicam
and Miniflash.

Following the need for a more ergonomic and smooth handling, SEACAM developed the new MINICAM concept for Canon, Minolta and Nikon AF cameras, combined with an inter­ch­an­ge­ab­le port system with flat and dome ports.

1992

Galileo sends
his regards.

The first SEAFLASH with Subtronic elec­tro­nics is released and the housing range is expanded by 8 more models. A com­ple­te­ly new release is the almost forgotten Galileo view­fin­der, a practical adap­t­ati­on for under­wa­ter housings.

1993

All about
the angle.

2003

A new
path.

With the rapid change and releases of camera models, changes in pro­duc­tion become necessary. The SEACAM pro­duc­tion switches routes com­ple­te­ly and now col­la­bo­ra­tes with local companies to mill the housing halves from a single block of aluminum.

2006

Let there
be light.
