This Ikelite Underwater Housing and Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles the Ikelite 6242.12 waterproof case with the Canon PowerShot S120 digital camera it houses, enabling you to capture still photos and video at a maximum depth of 200'. The housing's mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except for the flash-up switch and the rear control dial. However, the camera's built-in, pop-up flash can be extended prior to placement in the housing and control dial functions can be accessed using up/down and left/right navigation buttons.
Built for durability, the housing is constructed by hand in the USA from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The built-in, flat glass port accommodates the camera's lens and also accepts optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro accessory lenses. Expand your system by adding an optional, flex arm-equipped AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which is triggered as a slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash.
Canon's PowerShot S120 is a compact point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1MP 1/1.7" CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high-resolution still images and Full HD 1080/60p video. Additionally, the processor offers a range of speed-related assets throughout the camera, including a maximum sustained full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 9.4 fps for over 600 shots. The 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto length perspectives. A fast maximum f/1.8 aperture makes for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth of field. The camera also offers a 3.0" 922k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor and built-in wireless capabilities for instantly sharing images to mobile devices.
