Ikelite 6146.03 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G3 X
The Ikelite 6146.03 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Canon PowerShot G3 X cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
Canon cameras are known for their great ergonomics. Ikelite extend this underwater, providing larger controls and push buttons which are easy to access even with thick gloves. Control symbols laser engraved into the back of the housing will never peel off or fade even with years of use. The camera’s large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing.
The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon PowerShot G3 X flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera’s built-in control. At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the circuitry.
The camera’s built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers. Use of a fiber optic connector requires the camera’s built-in flash to fire, reducing battery life and bypassing the TTL functionality of the housing.
The new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light gray color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
