Capture sharp, detailed photos and video at depths as great as 200' beneath the surface, thanks to Ikelite's Underwater Housing for your Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. An Ikelite 5-pin sync bulkhead and integrated TTL circuitry enable the connection of optional, external strobes. Ikelite DS flash units can be used in TTL or manual exposure mode, while third-party strobes will work in manual mode only. Additionally, dual ports are provided for the connection of up to 2 Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables.

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, flat glass lens port accepts optional wide-angle and macro conversion lenses to increase field of view and enable extremely clear, detailed close-up shots, respectively. Optional color-correction filters can also be added to restore hues that get absorbed by the water.

Construction Details
  • 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
  • Designed, built by hand, and tested in the USA
  • Made 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
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 a 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 has slightly negative buoyancy in fresh water
Lens Port
  • The built-in, flat glass lens port with 3.9" / 99 mm diameter is designed to accept optional wide-angle and macro add-on conversion lenses
  • Wide-angles increase field of view to get you closer to subject while fitting more in frame, while macros allow for extreme close-ups with great clarity and detail
  • Both types of lenses reduce the amount of water between you and your subjects to minimize 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
  • Built-in TTL circuitry and an Ikelite 5-pin sync cord bulkhead connector allow for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes
  • A single or dual TTL sync cord is required
  • The DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161, and DS200 Substrobes are compatible in TTL or manual exposure mode
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as Nikonos-type and those from Inon and Sea & Sea, are compatible in manual mode only
  • The camera's flash does not need to fire with a sync connection, so you don't have to deal with shutter lag associated with the camera's flash recycling
  • The sync method also eliminates signal interference, inconsistent exposure due to weak transmission, and false triggering by other light sources
  • As an alternative, dual ports are provided for the connection of up to 2 Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables, which allow strobes to be triggered by the firing of the camera's flash
  • TTL exposure will not be possible when strobes are attached via fiber-optic cables, as that connection overrides the circuitry
  • A diffuser is supplied to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash, and a deflector is included to redirect its light towards an external strobe
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
  • A 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
