Ikelite 6970.03 200DLM/C Underwater TTL Housing for Canon EOS 100D, Rebel SL1 DSLR Cameras
The Ikelite 6970.03 200DLM/C Underwater TTL Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This unique housing for the Canon EOS 100D Rebel SL1 provides direct, electrical transmission of this TTL signal to the any current model Ikelite DS strobe.
Since the camera is talking directly to the strobe, the camera’s built-in flash does not need to fire. This dramatically increases battery life and virtually eliminates the recycle lag, allowing the camera to be triggered in more rapid succession than with optical-based systems. Additionally, in-line communication between the strobe and the camera completely eliminates signal interference and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water’s surface or your buddy’s flash going off.
Set up is a snap with simple, fully front-loaded camera installation. The camera mounting shoe is designed to be unobtrusive and allow changing of battery and memory cards, or attachment to a surface tripod without being removed from the camera. Controls are provided for all camera functions except for the rear touchscreen, so you have complete creative control anywhere you go.
This housing comes standard with a optical grade acrylic dome port with zoom ring. This port provides sharp images and zoom capabilities with both the Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM kit lens, plus the popular Tokina 10-17mm lens. Minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) will be present in the 10-12mm range when used the Tokina lens. A special zoom gear system allows the camera with lens attached to be installed from the back of the housing, without requiring removal of the dome port.
An optional zoom sleeve (Product Number 5509.20) is available for use with the Canon 10-18mm STM lens, sold separately. This lens is accommodated by the standard dome port with no vignetting.
The dome port may be removed without tools to attach the optional Mirrorless Flat Port Macro Extended for use with the Canon EF-S 60mm Macro lens. Simply loosen the securing thumb screws and slide the port off. The optional Flat Port allows use of the 60mm Macro lens in auto-focus mode and features 67mm front threads for the optional attachment of macro converter wet lenses. This Flat Port can also be combined with the DLM 2.2 Inch Port Extension for use with the Canon 100mm USM IS Macro lens. The Lens Extension allows for auto focus only.
The new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance 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.
