This Ikelite ultra compact housing is designed for the Canon PowerShot SD970 IS digital camera. It is an injection molded clear polycarbonate case, known for its strength and corrosion-free properties. The housing offers an unobstructed view of the camera's information and control functions and operates safely to a depth of 200'. Easy open latch along with drop in camera loading makes set-up a breeze. The housing is sized and weighted for near neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater.

A flash diffuser is included to improve lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used underwater. For optimum lighting underwater an optional external strobe is recommended. Ikelite strobes are brighter, recycle faster and offer wider coverage than the camera's flash. Being farther from the camera lens, the strobe reduces the illumination of particles in the water, which helps eliminate backscatter.

The port accepts the 67mm threads of a wide-angle conversion lens. Getting close to your subject will greatly increase the quality of your underwater photos. By eliminating as much water as possible between you and your subject, you will get increased contrast and better color. The wide angle conversion lens can be attached and removed when underwater.

    Comments about Ikelite 6240.97 Housing for Canon PowerShot SD970 IS:

    I haven't used the enclosure underwater yet, but it fits my camera perfectly and the controls work great! I am going to Saipan for nine months and will be using it almost everyday.
