Ikelite 6242.14 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot S120 IS (Updated)
The Ikelite 6242.14 Underwater Housing is a compact, lightweight underwater housing for Canon PowerShot S120 IS cameras that provides access to all camera functions up to 200ft (60m). Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
A drop-in, front-loading camera mounting system makes set-up and break down a breeze. An ergonomic side-mounted shutter lever is comfortable and reduces fatigue. The camera’s full 24-120mm equivalent zoom range is usable in the housing without vignetting. Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions except the Rear Control Dial. Most rear control dial functions may be accessed using the up/down/left/right directional buttons.
The 3″ 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.
Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the rotation-free attachment of a tray and handle system. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts. Mounting lights on a side arm rather than directly over the camera’s lens helps to reduce the appearance of backscatter which looks like snow in your underwater images.
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.
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.
