SPECIAL ORDER

This is not a regularly stocked item. It will be ordered for you from the manufacturer upon request. All special order items are final sale (no cancellations and/or returns)



Capture sharp, detailed photos and video beneath the surface with your IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR CANON 5D MARK III, 5D MARK IV, 5DS, 5DS R. The front and back parts are both depth rated to 200'. The back can be swapped out for an optional one with a 50' rating if you're looking for something lighter in weight and slightly smaller, and you aren't venturing down a great distance below the surface. An Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes. Use of an optional TTL hot shoe and circuitry will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only. 

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • 200' (60m) depth rating
  • 1/4-20 thread base mounts with 3.5" spacing
  • Near neutral buoyancy in freshwater
  • Actual buoyancy varies depending on the choice of lens and port
  • Weight 5.1 lb (2.3 kg) not including tray + handles
  • Dimensions 9.2 x 7.1 x 6.6" (234 x 180 x 168 mm) including projections

Construction Details

  • The front and back parts are both depths rated to 200'
  • The back can be swapped out for an optional one with a 50' depth rating
  • Made by hand in the USA from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend
  • White on the front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep the camera cool when shooting on or above water's surface
  • Clear Lexan back, which is also corrosion-resistant, allows you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a view of the camera's rear controls
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in fresh water; actual buoyancy varies depending on the choice of lens and port
  • Open-groove design suspends rear O-ring in a natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring
  • The camera mounting plate enables quick installation and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • Spare 1/2-20 threaded mount on the front of the housing for attaching optional accessories

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes via sync cords
  • Optional # 46070 CT1K Canon TTL Kit (hot shoe and circuitry) will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes, such as Sea & Sea, Inon, and Nikonos models, will still work in manual mode only
  • All strobes used with the camera in this housing require sync cord connection unless they are additional flash units being triggered as slaves by the hard-wired strobes
  • Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering via Optical Slave Converter #4403 or Aquatica's Water Wizard system
  • Use of external strobe highly recommended for color-correction and adequate brightness, and basically essential once you descend further than 15-20' underwater
  • Strobe restores hues that get absorbed by water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from the subject to preserve natural colors in images

Controls and Handling

  • Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers
  • Controls afford access to virtually all camera functions, including shutter release, zoom, power on/off, start/stop video recording, main dial, mode dial/lock release, metering mode/white balance, AF mode/drive mode, ISO, lens release, AF-ON, menu, info, playback, Creative photo/comparative playback, rate button, index/magnify/reduce, erase, live view shooting/Movie shooting switch, AE lock, AF point selection, quick control, setting, [Q] quick control dial
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob and universal zoom gear system
  • Control symbols laser-etched into the rear of the housing won't fade with time
  • Supplied aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • Optional right-hand QR grip can be added to allow for a second lighting arm to be connected
  • Enhance your view with optional # 6890 Straight Magnified Viewfinder or #6891.1 45° Magnified Viewfinder Type 1

Lens Port System

  • Dry Lock (DL) Port System
  • Housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses
  • Provides added security against leaks at the surface--thanks in large part to included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before dive
  • Pump required in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum
