Ikelite 200DLM/A overview

  • 1Description

With your Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera inside this Ikelite 200DLM/A Underwater Housing, you can capture brilliant images of coral reefs, whale sharks, and more at depths as great as 200'. An Ikelite sync cord bulkhead and built-in TTL circuitry enable the connection of optional external strobes. Ikelite DS flash units can be used in TTL or manual exposure mode, while third-party strobes will work in manual mode. Additionally, the housing is equipped with two fiber-optic ports for triggering strobes via the camera's built-in flash.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, 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 is 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. An optional aluminum tray with a quick-release grip or two will afford improved balance and handling, while offering a way to attach optional lighting arms.

The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various, interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of lenses. For full compatibility details, see the DLM Type A Port Chart.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Made by hand in the USA from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend
  • White on the front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep the camera cool when shooting on or above the water's surface
  • Clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and camera
  • Two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches are virtually unbreakable and make it easy to open and close the housing
  • Rear O-ring seal design and placement prevent accidental twisting or stretching, and eliminate the need for a groove that can trap sand, dirt, or debris
  • 1/2-20 threaded accessory port on the side of the housing allows for the easy installation of an optional Vacuum Kit, which will allow you to confirm the integrity of the watertight seal before diving
  • Camera is installed and removed through the front of the housing
  • Mounting plate allows for secure camera placement, and does not need to be removed for you to access the battery compartment or memory card slot
  • Mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for connection to a tripod
Controls and Handling
  • Large, ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push-buttons, dials, and levers
  • Afford access to all camera functions except for the control dial, Wi-Fi button, manual focus multi-function button, and AE lock function
  • Most control dial functions are accessible via the up/down/left/right arrows or the Quick Control dial
  • Updated, curved shutter lever on the side is more sensitive and ergonomic than the levers on many previous housings
  • Optional Shutter Trigger Extension can be added on to allow for easy shutter activation without removing your hand from a grip
  • Customizable * button, which can be assigned to various useful features, is accessible via the lever placed right by your thumb
  • Redesigned push-buttons are even lighter in weight than the previously existing ones, and are also less prone to salt buildup
  • Video recording button is bright red for quick, easy identification, and is also anodized to resist corrosion
  • Controls accessed less often are placed in the same configuration as they are on the camera, allowing for a smooth transition from shooting on land to shooting underwater because of the muscle memory you've developed
  • Laser-engraved control symbols on the back of the housing won't come off or fade with time
  • Camera's large, bright LCD screen is fully visible from edge to edge through the rear of the housing
  • Supereye Viewfinder gives you a clear view through the camera's optical finder when you're wearing a dive mask
  • Supereye is easily removed and replaced by the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder
  • Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for connection to an optional tray with grips, which improves balance and handling while adding attachment points for lighting arms
Lens Ports
  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts various, interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of lenses
  • For complete compatibility details, see the port chart linked above
  • Simply press the port on and tighten three thumb screws
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • An optional external strobe will be extremely helpful--and virtually essential--once you descend further than 15-20' underwater, except when shooting with color filters on very clear days with bright sunlight
  • Strobe acts as a color-correction tool, restoring hues that get absorbed by water so that your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from your subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Housing has a direct electrical connection to the camera's hot shoe
  • Ikelite bulkhead and integrated TTL circuitry enable reliable triggering of external strobes via sync cords
  • Circuit is powered by the strobe, so there are no batteries to change and there is no maintenance to be done
  • Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control
  • Ikelite DS strobes, such as DS50 (above serial number 70000), 51, 125 (above serial number 5000), 160, 161, and 200 (above serial number 7163), are operable in TTL or manual mode
  • Third-party strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, are operable in manual mode only
  • Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a light bulb, and the threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use
  • Bulkhead connector has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends
  • Housing ships without a required sync cord and accepts the following models: Ikelite-to-Ikelite TTL (#4103.51), Ikelite-to-Ikelite TTL Dual (#4103.52), Sea & Sea/INON-to-Ikelite Non-TTL (#4118.1), Sea & Sea/INON-to-Ikelite Non-TTL Dual (#4118.2), Nikonos SB-to-Ikelite Non-TTL (#4116.31), and Nikonos SB-to-Ikelite Non-TTL Dual (#4116.32)
  • Housing also has 2 fiber-optic ports for connecting strobes and triggering them via the camera's built-in flash
  • If using the fiber-optic method, you'll have to extend the built-in flash prior to installing the camera in the housing
  • Optional constant LED or other video light can be used instead of--or in addition to--a flash
