Ikelite 6950.52 200DLM/A Underwater TTL Housing for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II Mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds Camera
The Ikelite 6950.52 200DLM/A Underwater TTL Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II mirrorless micro four-thirds cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
The built-in proprietary circuitry tells your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately than with slave TTL strobes.
Ikelite electronics translate direct electrical impulses from your camera, triggering your strobe and precisely adjusting its power without the need to fire the camera’s flash. This eliminates the slave TTL strobe issues of signal interference, inconsistent exposure due to weak fiber optic transmission and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water’s surface or your buddy’s flash going off.
The camera’s external flash is not usable in this installation. Non-Ikelite strobes may be attached with the appropriate sync cord and operate non-TTL (manual exposure modes only) with this housing.
This housing accepts a variety of ports to accommodate all of the most popular zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses. The custom optical grade acrylic domes components provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight and cost.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DLM Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
The camera’s large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing. A built-in magnifying viewfinder includes specially optics to provides a clear view of the camera’s EVF when wearing a dive mask.
With a system of this caliber, a tray with handle is essential for the attachment of lighting and comfortable handling in a wide variety of shooting scenarios. This housing includes a balanced aluminum tray with the signature quick release handle for easy attachment and removal of strobes and video lights.
The special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure. There’s no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. The signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you’re diving. Unlike aluminum, polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.
