#6841.38 Ikelite underwater Housing for Sony A230, A330 & A390 SLR Digital Cameras
This housing is no longer available. This page is for reference only.
Shown with Camera, Lens and Lens Port (not included).

Durability:
The heavy duty thick wall dSLR housing is molded of corrosion free clear polycarbonate, features full capabilities, and operates safely to 60m (200 feet). The housing "O" ring seal is a masterpiece in fail-safe simplicity compared to designs that require stuffing the "O" ring into a groove. You can see that the "O" ring is sealed. The housing size and weight provides neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater. Camera installation is quick and simple. The dependable controls are conveniently placed at your fingertips, and kept water tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring® seal glands proven to be the most reliable method for sealing controls.

Functionality:
Controls for all camera functions except the Diopter Adjustment Dial are provided. An oversized zoom knob can be comfortably reached with the fingertips of your left hand. The housing back provides a crystal clear view of the camera's LCD screen for picture review and when using the live-view function for framing (not applicable for A230 camera). The Ikelite Super-Eye magnifier provided with the housing offers enhanced viewing of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask.

Versatility:
A full range of dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing quality. The modular port system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately. Click here for Ikelite ports. The Release Handles allow easy attachment and removal of SubStrobe mounting arms at the touch of a button. The handle assembly tray features three 1/4-20 mounting locations for the attachment of a tripod or Pro Video Lite 3 battery pack. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. A mounting block on the top centre of the housing accepts a 1/4-20 thread and is useful for the attachment of focus lights and other lightweight accessories.

TTL Flash Capability:
The housing includes iTTL conversion circuitry that puts perfect exposure at your fingertips. The TTL mode provides four half f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine tune exposure. Eight manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control. All choices are obtained by simple pushbuttons on the back of the housing. Settings are clearly illuminated by a series of LED's for visibility day or night.

Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favourites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of "automatic" TTL exposure. Use the #4103.52 dual sync cord to connect two DS Substrobes to your system. All current model Ikelite strobes are fully compatible with this housing. Existing DS substrobes may require circuitry updates. Click here for strobe systems. Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide iTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea. The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems. 

New features added November 2009:
• Four port locks for easy, fail-safe assembly.
• Top mount for the attachment of lightweight accessories.
