Ikelite 6973.15 200DLM/A Underwater TTL Housing for Canon EOS M50, Kiss M Mirrorless Digital Cameras
The Ikelite 6973.15 200DLM/A Underwater TTL Housing is a professional grade, compact waterproof housing for Canon EOS M50 and EOS Kiss M mirrorless digital cameras. This system is perfect for any application in or around the water from scuba to surf to pool.
This is the only housing to include an integrated TTL circuit fine-tuned to the Canon EOS M50 flash exposure protocol for the fastest and most accurate exposure possible. TTL communication by electrical sync cord improves camera battery life and recycle time, meaning you get many times more strobe-lit shots when you need them. The TTL circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera’s built-in control. At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the TTL circuitry. Non-Ikelite strobes featuring an electrical bulkhead may be attached by sync cord but must be used in manual exposure modes only. The built-in flash is not usable in this installation. Triggering of fiber optic strobes is not supported at this time. A strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.
High quality yet affordable optics are available for an extensive range of micro four-thirds lenses from wide angle fisheye to macro. Our custom optical grade acrylic domes provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the weight and cost. Glass flat ports are available for macro lenses.
The DLM port system is designed to be tough enough for heavy surf and to provide reliability in remote locations. The lens port attaches without twisting, threading, or complex mechanisms.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DLM Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
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.
Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray and handle grips.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. A hand pump with gauge allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to simulate water pressure and check for leaks prior to entering the water.
A custom ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and performance year after year with minimal maintenance. The ABS-PC material is fundamentally corrosion-proof and considerably lighter than aluminum. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
