Features

50' (15m) depth rating

Housing back is interchangeable with optional dive 200' (60m) back (sold separately); add the dive back to take this housing to recreational diving limits

Supremely functional for maximum creative control—access is provided for all important camera functions

The new Dry Lock (DL) Port System gives added security at the surface of the water and accommodates large diameter lenses

Extra-large, soft touch zoom knob; Zoom is accessible for many lenses using our unique universal zoom gear system

Vacuum valve included (pump sold separately)

Included Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hotshoe for reliable electrical triggering of underwater strobes; Optional TTL accessories provides automatic exposure with compatible Ikelite DS strobes

Control symbols are laser etched into the back and will never fade or rub off

Quick install camera mount plate does not need to be removed for battery or memory card access

One spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port locations on the front of the housing for the addition of optional accessories

Includes a balanced aluminum base with left-hand quick release handle; Right-hand handle sold separately

Signature open-groove design suspends the rear o-ring in a natural position that is easier to maintain and more reliable than forcing the o-ring into a channel

Made in the USA; Individually inspected for fit and water pressure tested to depth

2 year limited warranty

TTL Exposure

Use optional DL1 DS Link TTL Converter # 46054 for automatic TTL exposure with compatible Ikelite DS-model Strobes. Ikelite DS-model strobes may be used with this system without the TTL Hotshoe and Converter, but will not provide TTL exposure.

Non-Ikelite Strobes

SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes with an electrical connection can be triggered in manual exposure modes using an electrical sync cord. Strobes without an electrical sync cord connection cannot be attached to this system unless slaved off of a hard-wired strobe.

Ikelite Non-Digital Strobes

Older non-digital strobes featuring an ICS-5 electrical sync cord bulkhead can be used with this system in manual exposure modes.

Fiber Optic

Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.

Remote Triggering

Strobes with remote slave capabilities may be triggered off of a flash attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering using the Optical Slave Converter # 4405 or the Water Wizard system (manufactured and sold by Aquatica).
