Capture brilliant images of the aquatic world with IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR SONY A1, A7S III with Dry Lock Port Mount, which has a depth rating of 200'. An Ikelite bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional external strobes via sync cords. The use of an optional TTL hot shoe and converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.

 Construction Details

  • Depth rating of 200'
  • Housing is made in the USA from a corrosion-resistant ABS plastic and polycarbonate 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
  • Double-passivated stainless steel latches are virtually unbreakable
  • Housing alone has nearly neutral buoyancy in freshwater, though your choice of lens and port may change the overall buoyancy of the system
  • Rear seal design makes maintenance easier and prevents accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation and does not need to be removed for you to gain access to the battery or memory card
  • The mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod

 Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of strobes via sync cords
  • Optional DL2 DS Link Sony TTL Converter Ikelite ST1 Hot Shoe Kit (#46042) will enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Retra, 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
  • Bulkhead is located on top of the enclosure to keep the cord out of your way and reduce strain on the ends
  • Ikelite's Optical Slave Converter and Aquatica's Water Wizard system are available options that will let you trigger wireless slave strobes
  • Exposure compensation is available via the camera's controls

 Controls and Handling

  • Sensitive shutter and AF-On levers are curved and extendable to increase comfort when using the optional right-hand grip
  • Soft-touch knobs allow for a comfortable grip with or without gloves
  • Ergonomic, mechanical pushbuttons, knobs, and levers afford access to all camera controls except for diopter adjustment, focus mode dial (a1), joystick up/down/left/right (joystick can be depressed), and the control wheel (control wheel functions may be accessed using the front and rear dials)
  • The Super-Eye Viewfinder enhances your view through the camera's OVF when you're wearing a mask
  • You can remove the Super-Eye quickly if you'd like to attach the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • The camera's LCD can be tilted during installation to give you a better viewing angle

 Lens Ports

  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts various, interchangeable dome and flat ports for lenses
  • For complete compatibility information, see the port chart linked above
  • Dry Lock (DL) port system accommodates lenses with large diameters
  • The system also provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before the dive
  • Removing excess air and creating a vacuum will require the purchase of a pump
