  • Ikelite Underwater Action Housing for Canon PowerShot ELPH 180/IXUS 175

    Capture HD video and still images at depths as far down as 200' beneath the surface with Ikelite's compact, lightweight Underwater Action Housing for the Canon PowerShot ELPH 180/IXUS 175 Digital Camera. The enclosure is designed primarily for video recording, as there is no strobe connector and the camera's flash is not accessible. However, quality photos are still possible with an optional constant light source at any depth or with available sunlight down to about 60' underwater.

    The housing affords access to important camera functions via ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled dial with a small lever. Built for durability, the housing is made in the USA from a corrosion-resistant ABS and polycarbonate blend, which is light gray/white on the front, sides, top, and bottom but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and rear camera controls.

    The housing features a built-in, flat, optical glass lens port with a 3.0" diameter. Optional, accessory wide-angle and macro conversion lenses as well as color-correction filters can be attached to the front of the port to enhance your images.

    Construction Details
    • Features a depth rating of 200'
    • Constructed by hand in USA from corrosion-resistant ABS and polycarbonate blend, which is light gray/off-white on front, sides, top, and bottom, but clear in back to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and rear camera controls
    • Light gray/off-white color reflects sunlight to keep camera cool when shooting at or above water's surface, and also offers better contrast for improved viewing of camera, monitor, and O-ring seal
    • Controls made of acetyl plastic
    • Compact, lightweight design is well-suited to action video recording and also makes for easy storage and transport
    Optional Lighting
    • Designed primarily for video recording, as there is no strobe connector and the camera's flash is not accessible
    • Quality photos still possible with an optional constant light source at any depth, or with available sunlight down to about 60' underwater
    • Many optional lights designed for video and photo capture can be mounted to optional lighting arms for use with housing
    • At depths greater than about 60', or when diving in dark conditions, an external light source is necessary to provide adequate illumination and restore colors that get absorbed by water and turned into muted blue and green shades
    • Choose a light with a high lumen output, a wide and even beam, and--ideally--a daylight-balanced color temperature for best results
    • To preserve natural colors of subjects and environments in images, try to stay within arm's reach of what you're shooting. The further away you go, the more light is absorbed by water--which acts like a big blue/green filter
    Controls and Handling
    • Affords access to important camera functions via ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled dial with a small lever
    • Shutter button, power on/off, zoom (wide/telephoto) lever, movie recording button, up/down/left/right controls, FUNC/SET button, and playback button are all accessible
    • Central, bottom-mounted 1/4"-20 threaded hole provides attachment point for optional tray with handles, which improves balance while offering mounting points for lighting arms
    • Slightly positive buoyancy in fresh water
    Lens Port
    • Built-in, flat, optical glass lens port with a scratch-resistant front element, 3.0" diameter, and 67mm filter thread
    • Provides full use of the camera's zoom range without vignetting
    • Optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro accessory lenses from Ikelite, INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers can be attached directly to front of port
    • Wide-angle lenses provide greater angle of coverage to allow you to fit more in frame, while macro lenses magnify your image to enable close-ups with greater clarity and detail
    • Both types of conversion lenses get you closer to subjects, reducing amount of water in between you and therefore minimizing distortion
    • Wide-angle lenses often result in some vignetting, which can be reduced/eliminated by zooming in, using smaller aperture, or cropping in editing/post-production phase
    • Recommended WD-3 Wide Angle Dome provides mid-range angle of view with no vignetting
    • Optional, external color-correction filters, available for tropical blue and green water, can be attached via press-fit method to front of port to restore hues that get absorbed underwater
    • Since color filters reduce amount of light that enters lens, they are most effective in sunny conditions at depths of about 80' or less
    • Color filters not recommended for use in conjunction with external lighting, as combination can throw off color accuracy in images
    • Most wide-angle lenses require a filter with a 3.6" diameter
