Description

Capture sharp, detailed photos and video beneath the surface with your Canon EOS 6D camera in 200'Ikelite's 200DL Underwater Housing with Dry Lock Port Mount. Depth rated to 200', the housing features an Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection that enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes. Use of an optional TTL hot shoe and circuitry will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push buttons, knurled knobs/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's white on the front, top, sides, and bottom, but the clear Lexan back plate allows 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 good balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm.

The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses. For lens compatibility, 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.
