Capture images and video at 200' beneath the surface with your Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL and manual exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cords. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible with the housing as well, but in manual mode only.

Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions. The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with dual quick-release handles, which improves balance and gives you attachment points for optional lighting arms. Built for durability, the enclosure is designed and made by hand in the USA from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The built-in optical viewfinder provides a clear view of the camera's finder when you're wearing a dive mask. Optional Straight and 45° magnified viewfinders serve as upgrades to this standard OVF.

The housing is shipped without a required lens port and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, see Port Finder and Chart.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain a full view of camera
  • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
  • Aluminum 1/4"-20 threaded top mount serves as additional attachment point for lightweight accessories
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector enable TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cords
  • 5D Mark III, 5Ds, and 5Dsr are virtually identical but 5Ds and sr utilize a different flash protocol, so this housing would cause strobes to over-expose images by a couple of stops in TTL mode when using those cameras
  • Over-exposure can be corrected by dialing in negative EV compensation or using strobes in manual exposure mode
  • Housing #6871.04 features updated circuitry to allow for proper TTL exposure with 5Ds and 5Dsr cameras
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode
  • Sync cord method eliminates problems of signal interference, inconsistent exposure/weak transmission, and false triggering by other light sources, which can occur with fiber-optic and wireless flash connections
  • Sync cords available for most popular strobes from Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Inon, and Nikonos
  • Exposure adjustments can be made directly via controls on rear of housing
  • Tweak TTL exposure or take total manual control without taking your hand off housing
  • Access plus/minus exposure compensation in TTL mode, plus manual power settings in half-stop increments

  • Ikelite DS series substrobes: DS50 (above serial number 70000), DS51, DS125 (above serial number 5000), DS160, DS161, DS200
  • Non-Ikelite strobes: manual exposure only

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great setup I recently upgraded from the mark2 to the mark3 with the ikelite underwater housing. It's a great low light rig well suited for HD underwater video. Ikelite did a great job allowing all necissary functions of the camera.
