Ikelite 6148.73 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot SX730 HS, SX740 HS
The Ikelite 6148.73 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Canon PowerShot SX730 HS and SX740 HS cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
The zoom range of this camera is limited while inside of the housing in order to provide the best underwater imaging possible. The camera cannot be zoomed beyond 220mm equivalent inside of the housing.
Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions except the Flash open lever. If using an external underwater strobe, simply open the flash prior to installation of the camera in the housing. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off. 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.
The location of the camera’s flash in relation to the lens makes it unusable for lighting your subject underwater. However, the camera’s flash may be used to trigger an external strobe. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optically triggered underwater strobes.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded Accessory Port on the side of the housing is the perfect location for the installation of an optional vacuum valve. The Vacuum Kit # 47012 allows you to pressurize the housing to check for leaks prior to entering the water.
The ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance year after 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.
