Housing for Canon 5D Mark II Digital SLR Camera

This heavy-duty housing is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. The crystal clear polycarbonate case offers a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m). The housing is only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port.

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except the multi-controller and kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands—proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle.

As of February 17, 2009 a convenient lever control has been added to operate the camera's setting/movie shooting button. When the camera is used in video mode this ergonomic control accesses recording start/stop effortlessly with your thumb while maintaining grip on the housing's handle.

A full range of optical grade dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing image quality. The modular port system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately.

The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. The live preview feature of the Canon 5D Mark II model is accessible for framing your photos using the camera's LCD screen.

We feel that TTL exposure is so important in underwater photography that we include TTL conversion circuitry in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The Canon eTTL2 conversion circuitry in the housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes.

Exposure can be adjusted directly through the back of the housing using two pushbuttons. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. The TTL mode provides four half f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine-tune exposure. Eight manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control.

Exposure Compensation

Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of "automatic" TTL exposure.

Use the #4103.52 dual sync cord to connect two DS Substrobes to your system. All current model Ikelite strobes are fully compatible with this housing. Existing DS substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea.

The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.

Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. Attach the Pro-V8 LED Video Lite to the top of the release handle using the #9575.4 mount.

All housings come standard with a one-year warranty against manufacturer defect and Ikelite's unrivaled commitment to after-purchase support and service. Our reputation speaks for itself.

DS51 strobe

The compact, lightweight and affordable Ikelite DS51 Substrobe is an excellent choice for any underwater photographer. Its digital electronics make it fully compatible with digital cameras as well as traditional film cameras such as the Nikonos.

The DS51's intensity and angle of coverage make it equally suited for macro and general photography. The strobe's wide-angle diffuser increases the angle-of-coverage up to 80 degrees, softens the light and helps to reduce backscatter. The strobe can easily switch between TTL/Auto and any of the six (6) manual power settings for complete control over lighting the subject. The DS51 Substrobe's power rivals strobes twice its size, recycles in a quick 3.5 seconds, and provides 200+ flashes on a set of batteries. Much shorter recycle times and more flashes per set of batteries can be realized during TTL operation or when using manual fractional powers.

When connected with a sync cord to Ikelite TTL housings, TTL adapters, or the Nikonos camera system, the DS51 Substrobe offers TTL and Manual Modes. When used with other manufacturers housings, the DS51 Substrobe can only be used in the Manual Mode utilizing the six selectable power settings. When used in conjunction with the EV-Controller, the DS51 Mode switch is set to the TTL setting and the EV-Controller provides ten power settings in half-stop increments.

NEW! As of October 1, 2009, a clear battery door provides an unobstructed view of the o-ring seal for aid in assembly. The clear battery door assembly #9440.45 is also available for purchase separately to carry as a spare or update older strobes.

The #4044.1 DS51 includes a removable flash diffuser. A variety of strobe mounts and complete arms are available separately to attach to most camera systems. An optional #9571.4 mount with 1" (2.5cm) diameter ball allows you to build a custom arm or attach the strobe to TLC or Ultralight arm systems. Optional #9440.8 standard mount with through bolt attaches the strobe to Ikelite Strobe Arms Is and II (featuring tube arm components).

Complete strobe packages with strobe, arm, charger, and either sync cord or EV manual controller provide everything you need to add an external flash to your system.
