Ikelite 71718 200DL underwater housing for Canon EOS 750D Rebel T6i, Kiss X8i DSLR Cameras
The Ikelite 71718 200DL UW-Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Canon EOS 750D Rebel T6i, Kiss X8i DSLR cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
All push button controls are machined and hard anodized aluminum to reduce weight and resist salt build-up. The back of the housing is laser engraved with control symbols which will never fade or fall off. 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.
The included Super-Eye Viewfinder provides an enhanced view of the camera’s optical viewfinder when viewed through a dive mask.
This Ikelite 71718 200DL UW-Housing for Canon EOS 750D Rebel T6i, Kiss X8i DSLR Cameras supports your choice of shooting manual strobes or adding TTL electronics.
The included vacuum valve allows you to pressurize 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 housing features the robust new Dry Lock (DL) port system. “Dry Lock” refers to the placement of the o-ring on the outside of the port mount. This improves visibility and reduces the chances of water dropping onto your precious camera sensor. DL ports are the lightest on the market, yet robust and capable of standing up to rough surf. Attachment is quick and secure. A system of extensions can accommodate a huge variety of lenses with ease.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DL Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
The new ABS-PC blend front is stronger than its clear counterpart, provides improved contrast and visibility, and keeps your camera running cooler in the sun.
