Ikelite 6970.08 200DLM/C Underwater TTL Housing for Canon EOS 250D Rebel SL3, EOS 200D Mark II, Kiss X10 DSLR
This powerful Ikelite 6970.08 200DLM/C Underwater TTL Housing includes all of our latest upgrades to controls and ergonomics.
The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. A vacuum kit allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to check for proper assembly prior to entering the water.
This housing accepts ports from our DLM Port System to accommodate a selection of the best zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses for underwater use. 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.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon EOS 250D Rebel SL3 flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera’s built-in control. The TTL system can be used with current model Ikelite DS series strobes.
This housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera’s external flash hot shoe. Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a light bulb, and the threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use.
Changes to Canon’s flash hotshoe prevent the electrical connection of manual strobes. SEA&SEA, INON, Nikonos, and strobes by other manufacturers are not capable of powering the TTL circuitry built into the housing. These non-Ikelite strobes are not usable with this system.
The built-in flash is not usable in this installation. Triggering of fiber optic strobes is not supported at this time. A strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.
Non-Ikelite strobes including SEA&SEA, INON, Nikonos, and Retra are not compatible with this housing.
Older non-digital Ikelite strobes are not compatible with this housing.
Fiber optic triggered strobes are not compatible with this housing.
Strobes with remote slave capabilities may be triggered off of a flash attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering using the Optical Slave Converter # 4405 or the Water Wizard system (manufactured and sold by Aquatica).
The white ABS-PC blend housing 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 color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
