Ikelite 71708 200DL Underwater Housing for Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR Cameras
The Ikelite 71708 200DL Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Canon EOS 7D Mark II DSLR cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
The camera mount is now 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.
The single most important upgrade is the long awaited new Dry Lock (DL) port system. This exciting new system is even more robust and even easier to assembly than our time-tested Four Lock (FL) system. The new ports are lighter and more adaptable, and can accommodate extremely large diameter lenses with ease. Most popular zoom lenses and select lens focus rings can be engaged using a simple yet effective gearing system that puts adjustment right at your fingertips. Zoom and focus gears differ depending on which lens you are using. All are lightweight and affordable. Zoom gears sold separately.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DL Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
The included vacuum valve allows you to vacuum test the housing to check for leaks prior to putting your expensive equipment in the water. Use of the vacuum valve requires a compatible Vacuum Pump with Gauge # 47011, sold separately.
This housings supports your choice of shooting all manual or adding TTL electronics depending on your application. The new modular electronics system allows the housing to be updated with future strobe communications products as they become available. The flash bulkhead has been moved to the top of the case for improved cord routing and reduced strain. Reliable locking connectors between the hotshoe and bulkhead make it easy to install the optional TTL electronics or carry back up parts when traveling to remote locations. You can still enjoy the fastest and most accurate TTL exposure on the market by adding the CT1K Canon TTL Kit # 46070 and a compatible Ikelite DS strobe. Exposure compensation can be used added or subtracted in the camera.
The new white ABS-PC blend front is stronger than its clear counterpart, provides improved contrast and visibility, and keeps your camera running cooler in the sun.Like its predecessor and all of our housings, this product is made in the USA, individually inspected for fit, and water pressure tested to 200 feet (60m).
