Description

Capture images and Full HD video at 200' beneath the surface with your Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. Mechanical controls afford access to all important camera functions.

The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with a quick-release handle, which improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.

The housing is shipped without a required lens port, and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, see Port 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
  • Made as compact as possible to minimize bulk, strain, and drag in water

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 cord
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode
  • In order to keep housing as compact as possible, attachment of on-camera flash is not possible--but sync cord connection makes use of camera's flash unnecessary
  • By not requiring camera's flash to fire, sync connection eliminates shutter lag caused by camera's flash recycling and conserves battery life
  • Heat build-up inside housing is reduced, as well, since camera's flash remains inactive
  • Sync cord method also eliminates problems of signal interference, inconsistent exposure/weak transmission, and false triggering by other light sources
  • Sync cords available for most popular strobes from Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Inon, and Nikonos

STROBE COMPATIBILITY:

  • Ikelite DS series substrobes: DS50 (above serial number 70000), DS51, DS125 (above serial number 5000), DS160, DS161, DS200 (above serial number 7163)
  • Third-party strobes in manual mode only

  • Controls are placed right at your fingertips
  • Symbols are laser-engraved into back of housing so as not to peel off or fade, even through years of use
