  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot SX720 HS

    Capture photos and video as far as 200' beneath the surface with your Canon PowerShot SX720 HS digital camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. The large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including a side-mounted shutter lever, provide access to virtually all camera functions. Two 1/4"-20 mounts on the bottom enable connection to an optional tray.

    The body of the housing is made of a light gray, corrosion-resistant ABS plastic and polycarbonate blend, which reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface. Dual fiber-optic cable ports allow for the connection of optional external strobes.

    An integrated, flat glass lens port with a 3.9" diameter accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses to enhance your view. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore hues that get absorbed by the water.

    • Features a depth rating of 200'
    • Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are easy to use and virtually unbreakable
    • See O-ring form a solid watertight seal as you close housing
    • Rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring, and eliminates need for groove or channel that can trap dirt, sand, or debris
    Controls and Handling
    • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers, enable smooth operation
    • Access provided to virtually all camera functions
    • Controls placed in similar configuration as they are on camera, allowing for seamless transition based on familiarity and muscle memory that have already been developed
    • Rear controls marked with easily visible, laser-engraved symbols, which won't peel off or fade in time
    • Two standard 1/4"-20 mounts on bottom make it possible to add optional tray with grip handles, which can support lighting arms for strobes or video lights
    Construction Details
    • Compact, lightweight enclosure designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
    • Manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistant, light gray ABS/polycarbonate blend
    • Reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above water's surface
    • Provides greater contrast than clear housings, giving you better view of camera, screen, and O-ring seal
    • Front-loading camera installation makes for quick and easy setup
    • Camera-mounting plate allows easy access to battery and memory card
    Lens Port
    • Integrated, flat glass lens port with 3.9" diameter
    • Allows for limited lens zoom range of 24-628mm (35mm equivalent), rather than the full 24-960mm, in order to provide best possible image quality underwater
    • Accepts optional, external, 0.75x WD-4 Wide Angle Dome or 67mm threaded macro conversion lenses, in order to provide increased field of view or better clarity and detail in close-ups, respectively
    • Macro lenses available from Epoque, INON, Subsee, Nauticam, and others, and can be attached using optional press-fit Macro Adapter
    • Both wide-angle and macro lenses will enable you to get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion
    • Use of WD-4 results in no edge distortion or vignetting
    • Add optional, 3.9" color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by tropical blue and green water
    • #6441.46 available for blue water and #6441.86 available for green
    • Color filters most effective in sunny conditions at maximum depths of about 80'
    External Strobe Connection
    • Due to absorption of light underwater, even at fairly shallow depths, colors begin to change into muted shades of blue, gray, or green--necessitating use of color-correcting filters or external light sources
    • External lights should not be used in conjunction with color filters, as combination can throw off color accuracy
    • Camera's flash cannot be used to illuminate subject underwater, but can trigger optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables connected to one or both of housing's ports
    • External strobes are much brighter than built-in flash units, and are much better at correcting color, but it's still recommended that you stay no more than a few feet away from subjects for best results

  • Canon PowerShot SX720 HS Digital Camera

    Balancing a long-reaching zoom with apt imaging capabilities, the PowerShot SX720 HS Digital Camera from Canon is a sleek point-and-shoot capable of versatile stills shooting and Full HD 1080p movie recording. Utilizing a 20.3MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor, smooth image quality is afforded along with enhanced low-light sensitivity and minimal noise when working with sensitivities up to ISO 3200. In addition to the sensor and processor, the SX720 HS also sports an expansive 40x optical zoom lens, which provides a 24-960mm equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and is benefitted by an Intelligent IS image stabilization system to minimize the appearance of camera shake. In regard to handling, the compact form factor is accented by a large 3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor as well as built-in Wi-Fi with NFC for wireless image sharing and remote camera control.

    20.3MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6 Image Processor
    A 20.3MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor pairs with the DIGIC 6 image processor to realize notable image quality and speed to permit stills shooting at up to 5.9 fps and Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps. Together, the sensor and processor also produce clean image quality and enhanced sensitivity to ISO 3200 with minimal noise for working in difficult lighting conditions. The processor also enhances focusing speeds and subject tracking capabilities, as well as avails 5-axis Dynamic IS to compensate for camera movement for smoother video quality.
    40x Zoom Lens and Intelligent Image Stabilization
    An expansive 40x optical zoom lens offers a wide-angle to super telephoto equivalent focal length range of 24-960mm to suit working with a wide variety of subjects. This extensive reach is complemented by a versatile Intelligent IS image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for both stills and video shooting:

    • Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
    • Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
    • Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
    • Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.

    • Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
    • Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernible when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
    • Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
    • Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.
    Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC
    Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share your photos and movies with a linked smartphone or tablet as well as remotely control the camera from the mobile device by using the Camera Connect app. A dedicated Wi-Fi button is also featured on the camera body to expedite the process of connecting with a smartphone or tablet and sharing imagery between devices.
    Other Camera Features
    • A large 3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor is available for composing imagery, navigating the menu, and reviewing photos and videos.
    • Zoom Framing Assist automatically zooms in or out to keep a subject within the frame and in focus when using longer telephoto focal lengths.
    • MF Peaking is available for a clearer, more objective means to attain sharp focus when manually focusing. Creative Shot mode utilizes various compositional, color, and lighting elements from an original image in order to produce a new, unique image with artistic flair.
    • Story Highlights can automatically produce a highlight reel, comprised of videos and photos from a day or an event, and then add music and effects for playback.
