Description

Capture images of coral, sharks, and blue-ringed octopi with your Canon EOS Rebel SL2 DSLR, a.k.a. 200D, in Ikelite's 200DLM/C Underwater Housing with TTL Circuitry, which ships with the 6" DLM Dome Port for select lenses. It also accepts optional, interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of other lenses. For complete compatibility details, see the DLM Type C Port Chart. The enclosure features a depth rating of 200'. An Ikelite sync cord bulkhead and built-in TTL circuitry enable the connection of optional external strobes.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, 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 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. An optional aluminum tray with a quick-release grip or two will afford improved balance and handling, while offering a way to attach optional lighting arms.

CONSTRUCTION DETAILS:

  • Depth rating: 200'
  • 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 camera
  • Two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches are virtually unbreakable and make it easy to open and close the housing
  • Rear O-ring seal design and placement prevent accidental twisting or stretching, and eliminate the need for a groove that can trap sand, dirt, or debris
  • 1/2-20 threaded accessory port on the side of the housing allows for the easy installation of an optional Vacuum Kit, which will allow you to confirm the integrity of the watertight seal before diving
  • Camera is installed and removed through the front of the housing
  • Mounting plate allows for secure camera placement, and does not need to be removed for you to access the battery compartment or memory card slot
  • Mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for connection to a tripod

CONTROLS AND HANDLING:

  • Large, ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push-buttons, dials/knobs, and levers, afford access to all camera functions except for the diopter adjustment knob, display button, Wi-Fi button, depth-of-field preview, and flash button
  • Soft knobs increase comfort and prevent your fingers from slipping when operating the most commonly used controls
  • Updated, curved shutter lever on the side is more sensitive and ergonomic than the levers on many previous housings
  • Optional Shutter Trigger Extension can be added on to allow for easy shutter activation without removing your hand from a grip
  • Redesigned push-buttons are even lighter in weight than the previously existing ones, and are also less prone to salt buildup
  • Laser-engraved control symbols on the back of the housing won't come off or fade with time
  • Camera's large, bright LCD screen is fully visible from edge to edge through the rear of the housing
  • Supereye Viewfinder gives you an enhanced view through the camera's OVF, and can be replaced quickly and easily by the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder
  • Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for connection to an optional tray with grips, which improves balance and handling while adding attachment points for lighting arms

  • Durable Delrin acetal resin body is resistant to corrosion
  • Housing accepts optional, interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of other lenses:
  • For complete compatibility details, see the DLM Type C Port Chart linked above
  • Simply press the port on and tighten three thumb screws to complete the installation

STROBE CONNECTION AND OPERATION:

  • Optional external strobe will be extremely helpful--and virtually essential--once you descend further than 15-20' underwater, except when shooting with color filters on very clear days with bright sunlight
  • Strobe acts as a color-correction tool, restoring hues that get absorbed by water so that your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Ikelite bulkhead with a hot shoe connection and built-in TTL circuitry enable the connection of optional external strobes via sync cords
  • Circuit is powered by the strobe, so there are no batteries to change and there is no maintenance to be done
  • Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control
  • Ikelite DS strobes, such as DS50 (above serial number 70000), 51, 125 (above serial number 5000), 160, 161, and 200, are operable in TTL or manual mode
  • Third-party strobes with electrical bulkheads, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, are operable in manual mode only
  • Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a light bulb, and the threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use
  • Bulkhead connector has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends
  • Housing ships without a required sync cord and accepts various cords with single and dual connectors for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos-type strobes
  • Instead of or in addition to a strobe, you may use a constant video light
