This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof enclosure enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, push-buttons and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash switch.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic, which are clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated, 3.9" / 99mm diameter flat glass lens port is designed to accept optional wide-angle and macro add-on conversion lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.

The housing features built-in TTL circuitry and a sync cord bulkhead connector allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobe flash units. Non-Ikelite strobes are also compatible with the housing, though they will afford manual flash exposure only. Additionally, dual ports are provided for the connection of up to 2 Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. The housing's built-in TTL circuitry will not be operable when external strobes are attached using this method.

Waterproofing
Features a depth rating of 200'. Simply close the two stainless steel locking lid snaps and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal.
Controls and Handling
Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, push-buttons, and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except the flash switch. Video recording start/stop can be activated smoothly with your thumb via the control lever on the side of the housing. An included tray with soft-grip handle provides comfort and improves overall balance and handling beneath the surface. The handle's quick-release attachment system makes it easy to connect and disconnect lighting arms and accessories. The housing offers slightly negative buoyancy in fresh water.
Construction Details
Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic, which are clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
Lens Port
The integrated, 3.9" / 99 mm diameter flat glass lens port is designed to accept optional wide-angle and macro add-on conversion lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. Both types of lenses let you get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion and improve color, exposure and clarity. The recommended WD-4 Wide Angle Dome provides 0.75x magnification. The 3.9" Macro Port Adapter enables the attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. You can also add optional color-correction filters 6441.46 for tropical blue water and 6441.86 for green water to restore colors that get absorbed below the surface.
Strobe Connection and Operation
The housing features built-in TTL circuitry and an Ikelite 5-pin sync cord bulkhead connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobe flash units and single or dual TTL sync cords. The DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161, and DS200 strobes are compatible. Non-Ikelite strobes, such as Nikonos-type and those from Inon and Sea & Sea, are also compatible with the housing, though they will afford manual flash exposure only. The camera's flash does not need to fire, so you need not deal with shutter lag associated with the camera's flash recycling. You also won't have to worry about signal interference, inconsistent exposure due to weak transmission, or false triggering by other light sources. Additionally, dual ports are provided for the connection of up to 2 Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables, which do fire strobes in response to the camera's flash firing. The housing's built-in TTL circuitry will not be operable when external strobes are attached using this method.
More Recommended Optional Accessories
The DS51 Strobe Kit with Ball Arm gives you a strobe, a diffuser, an aluminum 1" ball arm, and a TTL sync cord. The Vega Video + Photo Light offers a 2200-lumen output, a 65° beam angle, and a daylight-balanced 5700K color temperature. Run time is 45-180 min. The Quick Release Kit for GoPro includes everything you need to attach your GoPro camera/housing to an Ikelite Quick Release Handle. The Gamma Waterproof Flashlight outputs 220 lumens in a concentrated 10° beam and has a daylight-balanced color temperature of 6500K. Run time is over 10 hr.
