Ikelite 71720 200DL Underwater housing for Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR
The Ikelite 71720 200DL Underwater housing is a fully equipped and durable waterproof housing for Canon EOS 6D Mark II DSLR cameras. Suitable for diving, snorkeling, surfing, swimming pool and any application in or around the water.
The most important upgrade is the long-awaited new dry lock (DL) port system from Ikelite. This exciting new system is even more robust and even easier to mount than the proven four lock (FL) system. The new ports are lighter and more adaptable and can Easily take lenses with an extremely large diameter. The most popular zoom lenses and selected lens focus rings can be activated with a simple but effective gearing system that allows setting directly at your fingertips. Due to differences in the assembly diameter and the zoom operation, DL and FL-Port can not be used interchangeably.
This housing also requires a compatible lens port. This is not included in the scope of delivery.
The supplied vacuum valve allows you to check the housing for leaks before putting your expensive equipment into the water. Combined with a full view of the camera and O-Ring gasket through the back of the enclosure, there is no greater certainty that your equipment is safe. The use of the vacuum valve requires a compatible vacuum pump with meter # 47011, which is available separately.
This housing supports your choice of whether you want to make all manual recordings or add TTL electronics depending on your application. The new modular electronics system allows the housing to be updated with future flash communication products as soon as they are available. Reliable locking connections between the hot shoe and the splash wall make it easy to install the optional TTL electronics or to transport parts when you drive to remote locations.
The camera is mounted for easy mounting and removal from the front. 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 surfaces or for 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.
The included Supereye Finder provides an improved view of the camera’s optical viewfinder when viewed through a diving mask.
A 1/4-20 thread attachment point is located at the front and center of the housing above the lens mount bracket. This bracket can be used to attach light accessories such as a focus light or a GoPro camera.
The new ABS PC Blendfront is stronger and offers improved contrast and visibility and keeps your camera cooler in the sun.
