More Info

This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Canon EOS 70D Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. The housing provides access to all important camera functions via mechanical controls. It is constructed in the USA from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.

A lens port is required and sold separately. The housing is compatible with various flat and dome ports for macro, zoom, and wide-angle lenses. Each features four locking latches for maximum security and quick changes between dives. Additionally, an over-sized knob smoothly engages Ikelite lens zoom gears, two sets of which are included with this housing.

The 70D's built-in pop-up flash is not usable, but the housing is configured with an Ikelite Digital ICS-5 5-pin electrical bulkhead for the connection of an external flash or strobe. TTL flash metering is supported.

The housing has near-neutral buoyancy in fresh water, depending on choice of lens port and lens. Included is a tray with dual grips to improve handling and provide mounting points for lighting arms.

Lens Port
A lens port is required and sold separately. The housing is compatible with various flat and dome ports for macro, zoom and wide-angle lenses. Each features four locking latches for maximum security and quick changes between dives. Additionally, an over-sized knob smoothly engages Ikelite lens zoom gears, two sets of which are included with this housing. The first set is designed for most popular large-diameter zoom lenses, while the second is made for those with smaller diameters. Both sets are lightweight and easy to install with no modification to the lens required.

TTL Flash Metering with Optional External Strobes
Configured with an Ikelite Digital ICS-5 5-pin electrical bulkhead for the connection of an optional external flash or strobe via cables, which are available separately. Current Ikelite DS Substrobe models (as of September 2013) will allow for TTL flash metering, while non-Ikelite strobes offer manual exposure only. Built-in, proprietary circuitry tells your camera that an optional TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to use TTL metering to adjust exposure more accurately. The camera's built-in pop-up flash does not need to fire. Exposure adjustments can be made easily at the back of the housing, and you can benefit from complete manual control. Two buttons below the camera's LCD viewfinder act as a remote control for Ikelite DS-series strobes. Access exposure compensation in TTL mode, in addition to 7 manual power settings in half-stop increments. Strobe settings are indicated by LED lights and plainly visible even in low light
Handling
A supplied aluminum tray with dual rubberized grip handles improves handling and balance underwater, while providing quick-release attachment points for strobe, flash and video light arms. Additionally, the tray is configured with a tripod mount. The complete assembly can be attached and removed with ease, connecting to the housing with just 2 screws
Recommended Optional Accessories
The DS161 Substrobe offers bright, even coverage at a 90° beam angle and a color temperature of 4800K, and also features a built-in, 500-lumen video light. Attach this and other strobes to the housing via the available sync cord and strobe arm kit. The lightweight Gamma LED focus/video light outputs over 220 lumens at a 10° beam angle, and burns for up to 10 hr. Additionally, extra O-rings and silicone lubricant can be purchased
