Capture brilliant images of the aquatic world with IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR SONY ALPHA A7, A7R, A7S 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.

Construction Details

  • Two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches are corrosion-resistant and virtually unbreakable
  • Housing is 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 back to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Housing alone has nearly neutral buoyancy in freshwater, though your choice of lens and port may change the overall buoyancy of the system
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, making maintenance easier and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation and does not need to be removed to access 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

  • Optional DL2 DS Link Sony TTL Converter Ikelite ST1 Hot Shoe Kit #46042 will enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Older non-digital strobes can be used in manual mode
  • Ikelite's #4405 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

  • Vacuum valve permits the use of #47011 Pump with Gauge to confirm seal integrity
  • Push buttons designed to resist salt buildup
  • Soft-touch knobs allow for a comfortable grip with or without gloves
  • Control symbols are etched into the back of the housing with lasers, so they won't fade or fall off with time
  • The LCD monitor can be tilted during camera installation to give you a better viewing angle
  • A hard-anodized aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip improves balance and handling while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • Another 1/4"-20 threaded mount is located front and center on the housing above the port mount, allowing for the attachment of focus light, GoPro action camera, or other lightweight pieces of equipment
  • Spare 1/2-20 threaded port on top of the enclosure allows for the addition of various accessories
  • Optional Cable Grip or Aluminum Top Handle can be added for easier carrying if you're using 2 strobes

Lens Ports

  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts all Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) dome and flat ports, enabling you to shoot with a wide variety of lenses
  • Zoom and focus gears are available for many lenses
  • 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
