Product Description

This compact digital housing is molded of corrosion free clear polycarbonate, itis virtually indestructible with heavy duty walls that allow it to operate safely to 60m (200 feet). All functions of the camera are accessible, except the print button. A flash diffuser is included to aid in improving lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used to illuminate subjects underwater. The housing's lens port allows attaching optional 67mm threaded wide angle lenses including the #6420 Ikelite W-20, Inon UWL-100, and Epoque lenses. Optional color filters #6441.41 for tropical blue water and #6441.81 for green water settings provide color correction in sunny conditions up to 80' (24m). For optimum lighting underwater an optional DS series Substrobe is recommended. The DS Substrobes are brighter, recycle faster and offer wider coverage. Being farther from the camera lens, the optional DS Substrobe aids in reducing the illumination of particles in the water, thus helping to eliminate backscatter. Optional EV Manual Controller provides 10 power settings with any Ikelite DS SubStrobe without requiring any fiber optic "sync cord"nonsense. Click on the Recommended Strobes button at bottom of this page for complete strobe systems. An optional #9523.31 Release Handle and Tray is required to attach DS SubStrobes. The Release Handle allows easy attachment and removal of Ikelite strobe mounting arms at the touch of a button.

Customer Reviews:
  • Tough Housing
    I'm very pleased with this housing. It's very rugged, and very well built. I decided on the Ikelite housing over the Canon housing due to just that, this housing is rugged.
    Also, I had heard about possible leakage problems with the canon housing. Not only from reviews on the web, but from other divers that I was diving with. My only complaint is how the zoom is controlled. It's a little tricky, but I'm not sure what Ikelite could have done considering Canon's design.
    In addition to being tricky, it can be left on so that the zoom is always trying to zoom in or out. Ikelite did mention this, and it did happen to me. You will notice that your buttons don't work and it won't focus. if the zoom is being used. A simple flick of the lever corrects this problem, but it is something to watch out for.
    This case was only $100 more than the Canon and worth every penny. You can also add a slew of lenses, filters and flash units. I recommend buying it....more info
