Camera not included.

Housing shown with Camera, Lens and Lens Port not included. Click here for Ikelite ports
This heavy-duty housing is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. The crystal clear polycarbonate case offers a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m). The housing is only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port.

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except the multi-controller and kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands—proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle. As of February 17, 2009 a convenient lever control has been added to operate the camera's setting/movie shooting button. When the camera is used in video mode this ergonomic control accesses recording start/stop effortlessly with your thumb while maintaining grip on the housing's handle. A full range of optical grade dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing image 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. The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. The live preview feature of the Canon 5D Mark II model is accessible for framing your photos using the camera's LCD screen.

TTL exposure is very important in underwater photography. For this reason, TTL conversion circuitry is included in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. Exposure can be adjusted directly through the back of the housing using two pushbuttons. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. 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. 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.

Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL 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. Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for travelling. Attach the Pro-V8 LED Video Lite #6320 to the top of the release handle using the #9575.4 mount.

All housings come standard with a one-year warranty against manufacturer defect and Ikelite's unrivalled commitment to after-purchase support and service.
