The Ikelite 6146.01 Underwater Housing w/ Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera Kit from B&H is a durable waterproof case that allows you to shoot underwater with your Canon PowerShot G1 X Digital Camera. It boasts a depth rating of 200' (61 m). The housing features mechanical controls offering access to all camera functions except for the diopter adjustment dial and pop-up flash. It comes standard with an optical grade glass flat port allowing full use of the camera's zoom range without vignetting effects. A flash diffuser is also included to enhance image quality when using the camera's built-in flash to illuminate your subject.
A tray and release handle (included) affords balance and superb handling, while also serving as a convenient attachment point for optional Substrobe mounting arms (not included). This tray setup can be easily removed using just two nuts for packing or attaching the optional #9523.62 Dual Handle and Tray assembly (not included), which offers improved stability and enables the addition of a second Substrobe or video light.
A flash deflector, included with this housing, prevents the camera's flash from producing backscatter in the image. Optional part #9571.3 (not included) features a 1.0" (2.5 cm) ball for attachment to the top of the tray's release handle. This configuration gives you a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC and other non-Ikelite arm systems.
Note: Note! Other external wide angle lenses by Ikelite, Inon, Epoque and other manufacturers are not usable.
