Capture images and Full HD video at 200' beneath the surface with the Ikelite Underwater Housing with TTL Circuitry and Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Camera Body Kit from B&H. Once you grab your favorite lens, the appropriate port, and a strobe or video light, you'll be ready to start your underwater adventures.

The housing features built-in 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 supplied mounting tray with quick-release handle improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the enclosure is made 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. It is shipped without a required lens port, and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, click on the full housing description below and check out the linked chart.

The black Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera combines a 16MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor for high-resolution stills, Full HD 1080/60p video, 10-fps burst shooting, and low-light sensitivity up to ISO 25600. Additionally, it's equipped with both a 3.0", 1037k-dot, vari-angle OLED monitor and a 2360k-dot electronic viewfinder. The 5-axis VCM Image Stabilization compensates for various types of camera shake to enable clear, blur-free shots. A durable, sealed magnesium alloy body helps protect against dust and the elements for worry-free shooting. The camera body ships without a required lens and accepts a broad array of Micro Four Thirds mount lenses.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing with TTL Circuitry for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II
    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.

  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera (Body, Black)
    The black Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera combines a 16MP Live MOS sensor with a TruePic VII Image Processor for increased performance speed and reduced noise throughout the ISO range as compared to TruePic VI. The Mark II also improves upon its predecessor by utilizing a 5-axis VCM Image Stabilization that provides up to 5 stops of compensation. Full HD 1080p video recording is now available on the Mark II with a higher bitrate of up to 77 Mb/s and various codecs. Built into the E-M5 Mark II is a unique feature that utilizes sensor shift to produce a 40MP image by combining 8 images in-camera.

    The camera's fully articulated 3" touchscreen LCD monitor makes taking self portraits easy, and the built-in WiFi lets you quickly share your images. When not using the LDC monitor for live view, the 2,360k-dot EVF provides a virtually lag-free view with a 1.48x magnification.
    Superior Image Quality
    The Olympus E-M5 Mark II uses a 16-megapixel High-Speed Live MOS Sensor offering improved performance and exceptional clarity and speed in all aspects of image capture. Olympus' TruePic VII image-processing engine improves image quality in low-light environments. The camera's sensor allows for a maximum ISO of 25,600, and the dynamic range has been expanded for more faithful color reproduction.
    5-Axis Image Stabilization
    The ultra-sensitive 5-axis VCM (voice coil motor) employs updated gyro sensors for a full 5 exposure steps of compensation. The E-M5 Mark II delivers sharp, clear still images in low light or steady HD video when capturing movies.
    Intuitively Designed Electronic Viewfinder
    The camera's electronic viewfinder has an eye sensor to seamlessly switch the display between the tilting 3.0" touch screen OLED and the electronic viewfinder for ease-of-use. Camera setting information, such as shutter speed, is displayed at the bottom of the viewfinder so photographers can concentrate on framing shots and take full advantage of an EVF's ability to display the effects of various exposure adjustments and Art Filter effects - all without having to take the eye away from the viewfinder
    Additional Features
    Interactive, high-resolution and high-magnification electronic viewfinder. 3" touch-screen LCD monitor, with variable angle positioning. Built-in Wi-Fi for instant connectivity. Live Composite, which automatically blends multiple exposures for incredibly detailed night scenes, and compatibility with Olympus Capture camera control software, which creates a seamless interface between camera and computer for studio work.
    Weather Resistance
    The magnesium alloy body is sealed to help protect against dust and liquid. The camera can operate in cold-weather conditions down to 14°F.
