Ikelite 6973.06 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Digital Camera
This powerful compact Ikelite 6973.06 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M6 cameras offers space for all the latest Ikelite upgrades for controls and ergonomics. Camera mounting from the front allows easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate is attached to the underside of the camera and attached to the front of the case. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for use on the surface or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate has a 1/4-20 thread mount on the underside so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.
An additional 1/2 -20 threaded connector is located on the side of the housing to allow easy installation of the optional Vacuum kit # 47012. With a vacuum kit, you can put the housing under pressure before placing it in the water.
The large, super bright LCD screen of the camera is visible through the back of the case.
An integrated TTL circuit is tuned to the Canon EOS M6 Flash exposure protocol to provide the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the flash, for zero maintenance and battery change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera’s built-in control. This housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera’s external hot shoe. The camera’s built-in Flash is suitable for firing an external flash, but not for illuminating a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are installed in the front of the housing and provide a mounting point for fiber optic cables from most major manufacturers.
Two 1/4-20 thread attachment points are included at the bottom of the case for attaching a tray and a handle system. Grips provide improved ergonomics under water and are the basis for your lighting fixtures.
This enclosure accepts a variety of connectors from our DLM port system to accommodate all common zoom, macro and wide angle lenses. The customer-specific optical acrylic dome components provide the color, clarity and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight and costs.
This housing also requires a compatible lens port. This is not included in the scope of delivery.
