Ikelite 6146.02 Underwater housing for Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II
For the most demanding underwater photographers we offer a fully functional yet affordable camera body for the Canon PowerShot G1X Digital camera. This sturdy housing is made of crystal-clear polycarbonate and is designed for corrosion-free use up to a depth of 60m. All camera functions, with the exception of the flash switch, can be reached in this very demanding housing.
The housing has a design port made of optical glass that allows full use of the zoom range of the camera without vignetting. A flash diffuser is included to improve the image quality when you use the camera’s built-in flash to illuminate the subject.
The connection via the hot shoe offers true Canon ETTL performance with the latest Ikelite DS Substrobe flash units.
The supplied base plate with release handle provides optimum balance with exceptional handling and a convenient attachment point for the optional substrobe boom systems. The strobe arm can be easily loosened or locked by pressing a button, whether above or below water.
Please note: The Canon Enhanced Grip GR-DC1A cannot be used in this system as the thickness of this handle interferes with the transmission required to drive the front control ring of the camera. Please note that some European models can be delivered with the larger “enhanced grip” and that this handle must be removed before installation. Cameras with the “standard” grip, as shown on the Canon USA website, can be used without any changes.
