Ikelite 6242.62 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot SX620 HS
A compact, lightweight Ikelite 6242.62 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot SX620 HS 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.
Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions except the Flash pop-up switch. If using an external underwater strobe, simply open the flash prior to installation of the camera in the housing.
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 25-625mm equivalent zoom range is usable in the housing without vignetting.
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.
A flash or constant on light is necessary for close-up, night dives, and deep depths. An external light also brings out more colors in sunny conditions. External lights are typically not used in conjunction with color filters, as the combination will result in tones that are too red or too purple.
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. Alternatively, a bright constant-on video light can be used.
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.
