Add to Cart

$851.00

Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II

Product Details

This compact and lightweight housing provide full operation of the camera up to depths of 200 feet (60m). Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions including the front and rear dials. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off.

A new, ultra-sensitive shutter lever and front rubberized grip make the system a pleasure to hold and shoot with or without an optional tray and handle. The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.

 

Zoom and macro close-up

The glass lens port has been optimized for full use of the camera's zoom range.

The front of the lens port is 67mm threaded for the direct attachment of external wide angle and macro lenses. This port is as close to the camera's lens as possible for the best image quality and minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) with external wet lenses. Vignetting can be eliminated by cropping the photo in post-production. The INON UWL-H100 exhibits the least vignetting and best clarity with this model among popular wet lenses currently available on the market.

 

Colour correction and external lighting

Light is absorbed as it travels through even short distances underwater, making colours appear dull or monochromatic. To preserve the natural colours of your subject, it's important to stay within arm's reach—no more than 3-4 feet (1m) away. Additional colour correction and clarity can be obtained by adding a colour filter or external light. The lens port of the housing accepts our 3.9-inch diameter colour filters, which are available for both tropical blue water and green water settings. A colour filter reduces the amount of light that reaches the camera's sensor, so they are most effective in sunny conditions up to approximately 80 feet (24m).

 

A flash or constant on light is necessary for close-up, night dives, and deep depths. An external light also brings out more colours in sunny conditions. External lights are typically not used in conjunction with colour filters, as the combination will result in tones that are too red or too purple. The location of the camera's flash in relation to the lens makes it unusable for lighting your subject underwater. However, the camera's flash may be used to trigger an external strobe. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fibres optically triggered underwater strobes. Alternatively, a bright constant-on video light can be used. A constant-on light is not as bright as a strobe flash. Constant-on lights do provide added versatility because they can be used for focus assist and for improved colours when shooting video.

 

Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray and handle system. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts. There is a simple rule that brighter is better underwater. A high-quality lighting system can produce magazine quality results with almost any compact camera system.

 

Durability and corrosion free performance

Our brand new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance year after year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated colour deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light grey colour provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and O-ring seal.

The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the O-ring for simple and confident assembly. We have eliminated the need for an O-ring groove or channel which can trap sand, dirt, or debris. Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The clear back allows you to see the O-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes.

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit and function. Every unit is water pressure tested to 200 feet (60m). We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the best reputation for service within the dive industry.

 

Camera compatibility

Differences in camera size and lens placement prevent the original Canon PowerShot G7X from operating in this housing. For the same reason, the housing for the Canon PowerShot G7X cannot be modified or adapted to fit the newer Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II.
