Ikelite 6146.05 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G5 X
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to Canon’s latest flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible with the Canon PowerShot G5X camera. 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. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
This Ikelite 6146.05 Underwater Housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera’s external flash hot shoe. Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a lightbulb, and the threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use. The bulkhead connection has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends. A variety of sync cord terminations are available for Ikelite, SEA&SEA, INON, or Nikonos strobes for ultimate versatility.
Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers. The camera’s built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Use of a fiber optic connector requires the camera’s built-in flash to fire, bypassing the TTL functionality of the housing.
There are two 1/4-20 mounts on the bottom of the housing for secure, rotation-free mounting of an optional tray and handles.
The 3-inch diameter ports feature a 67mm thread on the front for the easy attachment of external wide angle and macro wet lenses.
External macro lenses with 67mm threads from INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers, can be attached directly to the front of the housing’s port.
The camera’s built-in Wifi can be used through the housing to transfer your photos effortlessly after the dive without opening your housing. Wifi function cannot be used underwater.
