Capture HD video and still images at depths as far down as 200' beneath the surface with IKELITE UNDERWATER ACTION HOUSING FOR CANON POWERSHOT G7 X MARK II. The enclosure is designed primarily for video recording, as there is no strobe connector and the camera's flash is not accessible. However, quality photos are still possible with an optional constant light source at any depth or with available sunlight down to about 60' underwater.

Construction Details

  • Features a depth rating of 200'
  • Constructed by hand in the USA from corrosion-resistant ABS and polycarbonate blend, which is light gray/off-white on the front, sides, top, and bottom, but clear in back to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and rear camera controls
  • Light gray/off-white color reflects sunlight to keep the camera cool when shooting at or above water's surface and offers better contrast for improved viewing of the camera, monitor, and O-ring seal
  • Controls made of acetyl plastic
  • Compact, lightweight design is well-suited to action video recording and makes for easy storage and transport

Optional Lighting

  • Designed primarily for video recording, as there is no strobe connector and the camera's flash is not accessible
  • Quality photos are still possible with an optional constant light source at any depth, or with available sunlight down to about 60' underwater
  • Many optional lights designed for video and photo capture can be mounted to optional lighting arms for use with housing
  • At depths greater than about 60', or when diving in dark conditions, an external light source is necessary to provide adequate illumination and restore colors that get absorbed by water

Controls and Handling

  • Affords access to important camera functions via ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled dial with a small lever
  • Shutter button, power on/off, zoom (wide/telephoto) lever, movie recording button, up/down/left/right controls, manual white balance, FUNC/SET button, playback, erase, and menu are all accessible
  • Controls clearly engraved with the same symbols that are on camera. Markings will not fade or fall off even after years of use
  • Central, bottom-mounted 1/4"-20 threaded hole provides an attachment point for optional tray with handles, which improves balance while offering mounting points for lighting arms
  • Slightly positive buoyancy in freshwater

Lens Port

  • Built-in, flat, optical glass lens port with a scratch-resistant front element, 3" diameter, and 67mm filter thread
  • Provides full use of the camera's zoom range without vignetting
  • Optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro accessory lenses from Ikelite, INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers can be attached directly to the front of the port
  • Wide-angle lenses provide a greater angle of coverage to allow you to fit more in the frame, while macro lenses magnify your image to enable close-ups with greater clarity and detail
  • Both types of conversion lenses get you closer to subjects, reducing the amount of water in between you and therefore minimizing distortion
  • Wide-angle lenses often result in some vignetting, which can be reduced/eliminated by zooming in, using a smaller aperture, or cropping in the editing/post-production phase
  • Recommended WD-3 Wide-Angle Dome provides mid-range angle of view with no vignetting
  • Optional, external color-correction filters, available for tropical blue and green water, can be attached via a press-fit method to front of the port to restore hues that get absorbed underwater
  • Since color filters reduce the amount of light that enters the lens, they are most effective in sunny conditions at depths of about 80' or less
  • Color filters are not recommended for use in conjunction with external lighting, as the combination can throw off color accuracy in images
  • Most wide-angle lenses require a filter with a 3.6" diameter
