Ikelite 6812.5 overview

  • 1Description

Capture sharp, detailed photos and video at depths as great as 200' beneath the surface with your Nikon D500 DSLR in Ikelite's Underwater Housing with Four Lock Port Mount. An Ikelite bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes. Using an optional TTL hot shoe and the #4301.3 Nikon TTL Converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including pushbuttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers, afford access to virtually all camera functions. Built for durability, the enclosure is made in the USA from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend. It's white on the front, top, sides, and bottom, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls. The supplied aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm.

The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses. For full compatibility, see the Port Chart.vrwddayubvvuxzccdexrwcrb The Four Lock (FL) Port System is compatible with legacy ports and makes quick, easy work of changing lenses.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating of 200'
  • Made by hand in USA from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend
  • White on front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep camera cool when shooting on or above water's surface
  • Clear in back to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain view of camera's rear controls
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in fresh water; actual buoyancy varies depending on choice of lens and port
  • Open-groove design suspends rear O-ring in natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring
  • Camera mounting plate enables quick installation and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Use of external strobe highly recommended for color-correction and adequate brightness, and basically essential once you descend further than 15-20' underwater
  • Strobe restores hues that get absorbed by water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes
  • Optional TTL hot shoe and Nikon TTL Converter #4301.3 enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, will still work in manual mode only
  • Housing ships without required sync cord for strobe
Controls and Handling
  • Mechanical pushbuttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers
  • Controls afford access to virtually all camera functions: Shutter release, power, movie recording, sub-command dial, exposure compensation, ISO, mode button, white balance, metering, BKT button, lens release, AF-ON, main command dial, multi-selector control, info button, live view selector, Lv button, i button, playback, trash, menu, key/? button, magnify/reduce, OK, and Fn2
  • Sensitive, redesigned trigger lever is extendable for comfortable use when holding optional right-hand quick-release grip
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob located next to grip handle
  • Control symbols are laser-etched into back of housing, so they won't fade or fall off with time
Lens Port System
  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Four Lock (FL) interchangeable lens port system accepts various dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses
  • Compatible with legacy ports and makes quick, easy work of changing lenses
