About Ikelite

This heavy-duty clear polycarbonate case is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. O-ring seals and camera controls are plainly visible through the housing exterior. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m).

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function and kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle. An ergonomic control provides easy access of the Rebel T2i's Live View shooting/Movie shooting pushbutton. A "stay depressed" control for the Aperture/Flash Compensation button allows one-handed adjustment of aperture value in manual mode.

The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing for photo review or use of the camera's movie and live preview features.

Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. A top mount accepts 1" (2.5cm) ball or Flex Arm adapters for attachment of a focus light.

Size and Weight.
• 9.5 x 6.75 x 6.5" including knobs and port locks (24 x 17 x 16.5cm).
• 13.25 x 8 x 6.5" including tray and handles (33 x 20 x 16.5cm).
• 7.15 lbs (3.24kg) with tray and handles. Port not included.
• Neutrally buoyant in saltwater depending on choice of lens and port.

Lens Ports.
A full range of dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing quality. The modular port system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ringseal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately.

Strobe Use and TTL Exposure.
We feel that TTL exposure is so important in underwater photography that we include TTL conversion circuitry in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The Canon eTTL2 conversion circuitry in the housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes.

Exposure can be adjusted directly through the back of the housing using two pushbuttons. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. The TTL mode provides four half f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine-tune exposure. Eight manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control.

Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of "automatic" TTL exposure.

Use the #4103.52 dual sync cord to connect two DS Substrobes to your system. All current model Ikelite strobes are fully compatible with this housing. Existing DS substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea.

The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.

Lighting Options for Video Recording.
Light is essential to bringing out the vibrancy and colors of underwater life in your video. Several options are available to add a video light to this system:

The DS161 Movie Substrobe combines the warm, even coverage of our famous Substrobe DS160 with a powerful 500 lumen movie light. This is a perfect way to add performance without adding bulk.

The Pro-V8 LED Light is a compact and affordable 500 lumen video light. It easily doubles as a focus light and is compatible with any still or video system.

The Pro Video Lite 3 is the ultimate in output and angle of coverage. Available in 50W or 100W halogen versions. A 100° spread is great for shooting with wide angle lenses. The rechargeable battery pack attaches directly to the bottom of the SLR tray with just two screws

Questions about this item:

Abbasi I  I use Canon 600D with 18-135 mm n 40mm lenses, will this housing work with both of them.?
CINDY B  Yes. The housing is almost independent of the lens selected. You just have to get the correct lens port(s) for the lens(es) that you use. You attach any of the lens ports to the same housing. You select the ports based on the lens you'll have on the camera when you put it in the housing. It is a nice, adaptable system. You should visit ikelite and then go to ports and choose your lens manufacturer. When I selected Canon to see the specifics, here is what I see for the lens ports for the 18-35 and 40mm. There are 4 options for the 40 mm and one for the 18-135: 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 EF-S IS Modular - 8" Dome Requires: — 5510.45 dome assembly — 5510.54 extension — 5510.24 port body — +4 close-up lens Good luck! Cindy
Benjamin B  do you rent these underwater housings?
Andrew R  Unfortunately no, underwater housings are not available for rent.
Kenneth T  is any lens port included in with this housing?
CINDY B  No lens port is included. You'll have to get the one(s) that fits whichever lens(es) you'll be using.
