Ikelite 71710 200DL Underwater Housing for Canon EOS 80D DSLR
The Ikelite 71710 200DL Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Canon EOS 80D DSLR cameras. Suitable for diving, snorkeling, surfing, pool and any application in or around the water.
The most important feature is the long awaited new Dry Lock (DL) port system. This exciting new system is even more robust and easier to assemble than the proven Four Lock (FL) system. The new ports are lighter and more adaptable and can easily accommodate lenses with an extremely large diameter. The most popular zoom lenses and selected lens focus rings can be activated with a simple but effective gear system that allows adjustment right at your fingertips. Zoom extensions are sold separately. Due to differences in mounting diameter and zoom engagement, DL and FL system ports can not be used interchangeably. The DL port mount can be removed and replaced with old port locks for FL Port System (set of 4) # 5509.04 for older users with standard or modular four-lock ports. This change prevents the use of newer DL ports. The case can not be repeatedly converted back and forth.
This housing requires an additional DL lens mount for watertight operation. Lens connection not included.
The supplied vacuum valve allows you to check the housing for leaks before you go into the water with your expensive equipment.
This housing supports your choice of whether you want to shoot manually or add a TTL converter, depending on your application. The flash bulkhead has been pushed onto the top of the case for better cable routing and lower load. Reliable locking connections between the hot shoe and bulkhead make it easy to mount the optional TTL hotshoe or to carry parts while traveling.
You can still enjoy the fastest and most accurate TTL exposure on the market by adding the NT2 Nikon TTL Hotshoe # 46061, Nikon TTL Converter with Ikelite # 4301.3 and a compatible Ikelite DS strobe. The exposure compensation can be added or subtracted in the camera.
The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate provides easy access to the battery and memory card and has a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod top.
The included super-eye viewfinder provides an enhanced view of the camera’s optical viewfinder when viewed through a diving mask.
The new white ABS PC glare front is stronger than its transparent counterpart, providing enhanced contrast and visibility, and keeping your camera cooler in the sun.
