Capture brilliant images at depths as great as 200' with your IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR CANON EOS 5D MARK II. An Ikelite bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional external strobes via sync cords. Using the optional TTL hot shoe and Canon TTL Converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.


  • 200' (60m) depth rating
  • Compatible with DL system lens ports
  • 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
  • 9 lb (2.2 kg)
  • 5 x 7 x 6.5" (241 x 178 x 165 mm)

Construction Details

  • Made by hand in the USA from a 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 the water's surface
  • Clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in freshwater
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • 1/4"-20 threaded hole located above the lens port mount enables the connection of a lightweight accessory, such as focus light or GoPro action camera
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • The mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Use of an optional external strobe is 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 the water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from your subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables attachment and reliable electrical triggering of strobes via sync cords
  • Optional TTL hot shoe and Canon TTL Converter enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, will still work in manual mode only
  • Older non-digital strobes can be used in manual mode
  • Housing ships without a required sync cord for a strobe
  • Exposure compensation can be adjusted via the camera's built-in controls
  • Bulkhead has been moved to the top of the enclosure to keep the cord out of your way and reduce strain on the ends
  • Strobes with remote slave functionality can be triggered by those connected to the housing via sync cords

Controls and Handling

  • Sensitive, redesigned shutter and AF-On levers are curved and extendable for comfortable use when holding the optional right-hand quick-release grip
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob located next to the grip handle makes fine adjustments easy
  • Push-buttons have been modified to reduce weight and salt buildup
  • Ergonomic mechanical push-buttons, dials, and levers afford access to nearly all camera functions
  • Control symbols are laser-etched into the back of the housing, so they won't fade or fall off with time
  • Super eye Viewfinder enhances your view through the camera's OVF when you're wearing a mask
  • You can remove the Supereye quickly if you'd like to attach the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • Hard-anodized aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • The optional right-hand grip can be added easily
  • The tray has 1/4"-20 mounts for tripods and accessories
  • More than 3/4 lb lighter than Ikelite's previous model
  • Housing is 1/2 lb lighter than its FL-mount counterpart

Lens Port System

  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts lightweight, adaptable Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) dome and flat ports, allowing you to shoot with a wide variety of lenses
  • Zoom and focus gears are available for many lenses
  • DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters
  • Provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve that helps you check watertight integrity before the dive
  • A pump is required in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum
  • DL mount can be removed and replaced by the older FL (Four Lock) port locks, though this change would be irreversible unless you sent the housing back to Ikelite to have the DL mount installed again
