This Ikelite 6870.60 eTTL Housing is designed for the Canon EOS 60D camera. It has controls for every camera function except the depth-of-field preview button. All these dependable controls are conveniently placed at your fingertips, and kept water tight with Ikelite's pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands. The camera offers both digital stills and high-definition video. Now you can shoot both with one camera in one housing.

The housing allows eTTL operation when using Ikelite DS digital SubStrobes. In TTL mode you can fine-tune your strobe exposure using two push buttons on the back of the housing. This allows flash compensation of 4 f/stops, in half stop increments, both over and under the base exposure. You also have 8 manual power settings in half-stop increments. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. Other manufacturers' strobes can be used, but they cannot provide TTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing.

The auto focus system on the camera is very good, but does require a certain amount of light and contrast. When shooting under ledges, on night dives, or inside caves and wrecks, a focus light will allow the camera to focus faster. The housing features a 1/4-20 threaded mounting point in the center of the housing above the lens. This is the perfect place to attach a focus light or other accessories.

The Ikelite Super-Eye magnifier offers enhanced viewing when you're wearing a diving mask. The live preview feature of the 60D is accessible for framing your photos. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing.

The housing's size and weight provide slightly negative buoyancy and superb handling underwater. Camera installation is quick and simple. An assortment of interchangeable lens ports allows use of most macro, wide-angle, and zoom lenses. Ikelite uses a simple and reliable 4-point locking system to attach lens ports to the housing. This fail-safe assembly consists of one sliding lock in each corner around the opening that accepts the port.

Lens port is not included.

            Comments about Ikelite 6870.60 eTTL Housing for Canon EOS 60D:

            Like all the Ikelite products I've purchased in the past, this one does everything I want. I upgraded my camera body to take advantage of a larger viewplate and higher resolution, and this housing allows me to work all buttons and controls easily. Since I've had leaks in the past (most due to my error), it's nice to have a clear housing so one can see leak problems early if they occur.

                Comments about Ikelite 6870.60 eTTL Housing for Canon EOS 60D:

                This is my third housing from Ikelite and I've never been disappointed with the quality. One of the best features is the transparent case. This allows you to see immediately if any of the seals have been compromised while underwater, allowing plenty of time to surface before any damage can be done to the camera. And if you forget where certain function buttons are located you can easily see them. Housing is rugged and system is nearly weightless underwater.
