Capture brilliant images of the aquatic world with your Sony a7R IV mirrorless camera in Ikelite's 200DL Underwater Housing with Dry Lock Port Mount. Depth-rated for 200', it features an Ikelite bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection for reliable electrical triggering of optional external strobes via sync cords. The use of an optional TTL hot shoe and converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes work in manual mode only.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push buttons, dials, and levers, afford access to all essential 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. 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.

This housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various, interchangeable dome and flat ports for an array of lenses. For full compatibility details, see the port chart. The Dry Lock (DL) port system accommodates lenses with large diameters, and provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before the dive. You'll need to pick up the required pump in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum.

Construction Details

  • Depth rating of 200'
  • Two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches are corrosion resistant and virtually unbreakable
  • Housing is 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 maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Housing alone has nearly neutral buoyancy in fresh water, though your choice of lens and port may change the overall buoyancy of the system
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, making maintenance easier and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation, and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • Mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of strobes
  • Optional DL2 DS Link Sony TTL Converter with Ikelite ST1 Hot Shoe Kit #46042 will enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Older, non-digital Ikelite strobes and non-Ikelite strobes work in manual mode only
  • Exposure compensation is available via the camera's controls

Controls and Handling

  • Sensitive shutter and AF-On levers are curved and extendable, in order to increase comfort when using the optional right-hand grip
  • Ergonomic, mechanical push buttons, knobs, and levers afford access to all camera functions except: diopter adjustment, control wheel, joystick up/down/left/right (joystick can be depressed)
  • Control wheel functions may be accessed using the front and rear Dials
  • Control symbols are etched into the back of the housing with lasers, so they won't fade or fall off with time
  • Control placement is as close as possible to the layout of functions on the camera, allowing your muscle memory to guide you, so you don't have to learn another set of controls
  • LCD monitor can be tilted during camera installation to give you a better viewing angle
  • Supereye Viewfinder enhances your view through the camera's OVF when you're wearing a mask
  • You can remove the Supereye quickly if you'd like to attach the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • Hard anodized aluminum tray with a left-hand quick release grip improves balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • Optional right-hand grip can be added easily
  • 1/4"-20 mounts and other mounting points enable connection to a tripod and the addition of accessories
  • Another 1/4"-20 threaded mount is located front and center on the housing above the port mount, allowing for the attachment of a focus light, GoPro action camera, or other lightweight piece of equipment
  • Spare 1/2-20 threaded port on top of the enclosure allows for the addition of various accessories
  • Optional Cable Grip or Aluminum Top Handle can be added for easier carrying if you're using 2 strobes
