This heavy-duty housing is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. The crystal clear polycarbonate case offers a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m). The housing is only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port.
Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except the multi-controller and flash "pop-up" button and kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands—proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle.
A convenient lever control operates the camera's setting/movie shooting button. When the camera is used in video mode this ergonomic control accesses recording start/stop effortlessly with your thumb while maintaining grip on the housing's handle.
A full range of optical grade dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing image quality. The modular port system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing.
The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. The live preview feature of the Canon 7D model is accessible for framing your photos using the camera's LCD screen.
We feel that TTL exposure is so important in underwater photography that we include TTL conversion circuitry in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The Canon eTTL2 conversion circuitry in the housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes.
#0132.61 Housing Back O-Ring
#0105 Port O-Ring
#5512.69 O-Ring Kit
Kit includes back O-ring, port O-ring and lube.
Exposure can be adjusted directly through the back of the housing using two pushbuttons. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. The TTL mode provides four half f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine-tune exposure. Eight manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control.
Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of "automatic" TTL exposure. Our innovative new DS161 Movie Substrobe combines a powerful strobe with a bright LED movie light, perfect for shooting both still and video on a single dive.
Use the #4103.52 dual sync cord to connect two DS Substrobes to your system. All current model Ikelite strobes are fully compatible with this housing. Existing DS substrobes may require circuitry updates.
Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea.
The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.
Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. Attach the Pro-V8 LED Video Lite to the top of the release handle using the #9575.4 mount.
New features added November 2009:
• Four port locks for easy, fail-safe assembly.
• Top mount for the attachment of lightweight accessories.
#9571.6 Optional 1" (2.5cm) Ball Adapter
#9573.1 Optional Flex Ball Adapter
All housings come standard with a one-year warranty against manufacturer defect and Ikelite's unrivaled commitment to after-purchase support and service. Our reputation speaks for itself.
Ikelite (5510.45) Standard Port
The injection molded acrylic 4" radius dome is
specifically designed for underwater
photography to provide superior optical
performance. Its larger radius reduces edge
distortion on pictures taken with certain super
wide-angle lenses and makes shooting over-
under shots easier.
Canon 7D Camera
With a host of features designed to enhance every facet of the photographic process, from still images to video, the EOS 7D represents a whole new class of camera. Made to be the tool of choice for serious photographers and semi-professionals, the EOS 7D features an 18.0 megapixels APS-C size CMOS sensor and dual DIGIC 4 image processors, capturing tremendous images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8 fps. The EOS 7D has a cross-type 19-point AF system with improved AI Servo AF subject tracking and user-selectable AF area selection modes for sharp focus no matter the situation. The EOS 7D's Intelligent Viewfinder provides 100% coverage and displays user-selected AF modes as well as a spot metering circle and on demand grid lines. iFCL metering with 63-zone dual-layer metering system uses both focus and color information to provide accurate exposure even in difficult lighting. The EOS 7D also captures Full HD video at 30p, 24p and 25p with an array of manual controls, including manual exposure during movie shooting and ISO speed selection. The EOS 7D features a magnesium alloy body that is dust- and weather-resistant and shutter durability of up to 150,000 cycles.
Tokina 10-17mm Lens
A 180° view at the 10mm setting takes in more than the human eye sees with a typical dramatic curvature of field. At the 17mm end of the zoom it's a very wide-angle lens. This lens may be used with cameras using APS-C size sensors and with cameras using full-frame sensors. A full corner-to-corner image can be achieved on an full-frame (FX) camera between approx. This very useful lens contains one super-low dispersion glass element helping to make the lens compact lightweight (12.3 oz/350g) and fast focusing. The front element has a Water Repellent (WR) optical coating which makes removing water spots and fingerprints much easier. The lens includes a built-in lens hood.
