Capture images and Full HD video at 200' beneath the surface with your Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. Mechanical controls afford access to all important camera functions.
The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with a quick-release handle, which improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.
The housing is shipped without a required lens port, and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, see Port Chart.
Depth rating: 200'
Made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain a full view of camera
Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
Made as compact as possible to minimize bulk, strain, and drag in water
Strobe Connection and Operation
Built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector enable TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord
Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode
In order to keep housing as compact as possible, attachment of on-camera flash is not possible--but sync cord connection makes use of camera's flash unnecessary
By not requiring camera's flash to fire, sync connection eliminates shutter lag caused by camera's flash recycling and conserves battery life
Heat build-up inside housing is reduced, as well, since camera's flash remains inactive
Sync cord method also eliminates problems of signal interference, inconsistent exposure/weak transmission, and false triggering by other light sources
Sync cords available for most popular strobes from Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Inon, and Nikonos
Ikelite DS series substrobes: DS50 (above serial number 70000), DS51, DS125 (above serial number 5000), DS160, DS161, DS200 (above serial number 7163)
