Other housings simply waterproof your camera.
An Ikelite housing improves your photos.
TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly
expose an image. The Ikelite housing for the Canon EOS 70D includes built-in proprietary
circuitry which tells your camera that a TTL
external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately**.
Spend more time showing off great photos, and less time tinkering in Photoshop.
Stop the drain on your camera's battery.
Fiber optic slave flash units require the camera's flash to fire every time. This constantly
drains your camera's battery life, builds up heat inside of the housing, and creates a shutter lag as you
wait for the camera's flash to recycle in between shots. The Ikelite housing for the Canon EOS 70D translates
direct electrical impulses from your camera, triggering your strobe and precisely adjusting
its power without the need to fire the camera's flash.
No mis-fires. Period.
In-line communication between the strobe and the camera completely eliminates signal interference
and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off.
Full flash control, right at your fingertips.
Exposure adjustments directly through the back of the housing put the perfect shot within reach
every time. Tweak your TLL exposure or take total manual control without taking your hand off of your housing.
Two pushbuttons below the camera's LCD viewfinder act as a remote control for Ikelite DS-series strobes**.
Access plus/minus exposure compensation in TTL mode, plus 7 manual power settings
in half-stop increments. Strobe settings are indicated by a series of LED lights and plainly visible even
Thoughtfully designed for ergonomic handling.
Controls are customized to put all important camera functions within comfortable reach.
We bring video record start/stop and AF lock out to the
side of the housing for quick access using your thumb without taking a hand off of the handles.
Comfort and control come standard.
For a system of this caliber, a tray with dual handles is essential to good handling, balance underwater
and attachment of external lighting. An aluminum tray with right- and left-hand rubberized grips is
included with the Ikelite housing for the Canon EOS 70D, providing balance and comfortable hold, plus two
quick release points for strobe and video arms, and tripod attachment holes. The complete handle
assembly removes with just two screws for traveling.
Unleash your creativity with options for macro, zoom and wide angle lenses.
An over-sized knob smoothly engages our unique system of universal zoom gears.
We provide two zoom sets with each housing, one for
use with most popular larger diameter zoom lenses and a second designed for use with smaller diameter zoom
lenses. Both sets are lightweight and easy to install with no modification to the lens required.
A variety of dome and flat ports attach with four locking latches for maximum security and quick changes between dives.

NOTE: A lens port is required for waterproof operation.
Clearly superior strength and assurance.
Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure.
We believe there's no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed.
Our signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water,
and provides full view of the camera while you're diving.
Polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.
Quality in engineering, manufacturing and service.
Like every Ikelite product, this housing for the Canon EOS 70D camera is designed,
