This Ikelite Underwater Housing and Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles the 6165.01 waterproof case from Ikelite with the Leica C Digital Camera, enabling you to shoot beneath the surface at a maximum depth of 200'. The housing's mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs, and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except the diopter adjustment dial and Wi-Fi button, and the case also enables the use of the camera's built-in flash.

Built for durability, it is constructed 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 housing's built-in port accommodates the camera's lens and also accepts external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses. Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which is triggered as a slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure.

The Leica C Digital Camera features a 12.1MP, 1/1.7" MOS sensor for high-resolution still images and full HD 1080 video recording. The Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens offers a fast f/2 maximum aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field, as well as a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. The camera is also equipped with a 3.0", 921k-dot LCD monitor and a 200k-dot, color LCD viewfinder. Additionally, the Leica C features built-in Wi-Fi and an NFC (Near Field Communication) module for easy connectivity with smart devices. Included with the camera is a download of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 image management and post-processing software.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Leica C Digital Camera

    This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Leica C Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. The housing's mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs, and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except the diopter adjustment dial and Wi-Fi button. The housing also enables the use of the camera's built-in flash.

    Built for durability, it is designed, constructed, and tested 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 housing's built-in port accommodates the camera's lens and also accepts external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively.

    Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing comes bundled with a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe.

    Depth Rating
    Can be used at a maximum depth of 200'.
    Controls
    Custom-made mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except the diopter adjustment dial and Wi-Fi button. The housing also enables the use of the camera's built-in flash.
    Construction
    Designed, built by hand and tested in the USA from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
    Lens Port
    Built-in port accommodates the camera's lens, and also accepts external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. The optional, 67mm threaded W-30 Wide Angle Lens is specifically designed for digital cameras with focal lengths of 28mm and wider (35mm equivalent). It's easily removed and replaced underwater. You can also attach 67mm threaded macro lenses for close-up shooting. Both types of lenses can be attached directly to the front of the housing's port without an adapter. A small amount of vignetting will be present when using external wide-angle lenses, but this can be reduced or eliminated by zooming in.
    Color Correction Filters
    Optional 6441.41 filter for blue water or 6441.81 for green water help restore colors that get absorbed beneath the surface, bringing back color accuracy and vibrancy to your images when you're shooting without a strobe.
    Buoyancy
    Slightly negative but nearly neutral in fresh water.
    TTL Flash Exposure Replication
    The optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. It attaches with just two screws for easy assembly and breakdown. The strobe is triggered as a wireless slave unit by the firing of the camera's built-in flash, and automatically varies its own power to replicate TTL exposure. The housing comes bundled with a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash, and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe.
    Mounting
    Configured with a 1/4"-20 thread with 3" spacing for the attachment of an optional tray with grip handle.
    Additional Recommended Optional Accessories
    The lightweight (4 oz) aluminum Gamma LED light offers an output of over 220 lumens, a beam angle of 10° and a burn time of 10 hr. Using the Gamma AF35 Mount (#1884), you can even attach your Gamma light to the AF35 strobe arm. An optional aluminum tray and rubberized grip offer improved handling and balance beneath the water's surface, while also providing a quick-release mounting point for a lighting arm.

The lens is a 7x optical zoom with a 35mm format equivalency of 28-200mm, which enables a comprehensive range of focal lengths from true wide-angle to telephoto. An additional 4x digital zoom is supported for extra reach. With optical image stabilization and a fast maximum aperture of f/2 at the wide-angle end, the Leica C provides effective low-light capability and its easy-to-use interface makes it a versatile everyday camera. Fast autofocus, 10 fps continuous shooting, and manual exposure control provide high-end capabilities, making it easy to shoot in difficult lighting and capture fast-moving subjects.

    A 3.0" TFT Color LCD monitor provides composition and playback viewing with 921k-dot resolution and an electronic viewfinder with 200k-dot resolution and +/-4 diopter adjustment allows stable, eye-level composition. A programmable focusing ring enables fast and intuitive control of various camera settings including manual focus.
