Ikelite 6973.05 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless Digital Camera
This powerful compact Ikelite 6973.05 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M5 packs in all of Ikelite´s 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.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon EOS M5 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. At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
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. The bulkhead connection has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends. A variety of sync cord terminations are available for Ikelite, SEA&SEA, INON, or Nikonos strobes for ultimate versatility.
The camera’s built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers. Use of a fiber optic connector requires the camera’s built-in flash to fire, reducing battery life and bypassing the TTL functionality of the housing.
This housing accepts a variety of ports from our DLM Port System (Type A mount) to accommodate 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 new 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.
