Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS, IXUS 265 HS

Dive into underwater photography with this compact and easy to use system!

Construction

Durable clear polycarbonate construction provides a unique view of the camera to ensure correct waterproof installation and confidence underwater. The camera installs with drop-in loading for quick and easy set up. Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. Large, ergonomic controls provide access to all important camera functions.

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

Flash

An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful than the camera's flash and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter - or "snow" - from your underwater images.

The optional AF35 strobe triggers and provides automatic TTL exposure by watching the camera's built-in flash, without the need of fiber optic cords or sensors. Alternatively, two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords.

Wide Angle, Macro + Filters

The housing port is designed to accept 3.0-inch diameter color filters, and wide angle or macro options with 67mm threads. Light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water. A subject will look darker, less colorful and somewhat grainy when viewed through even a few feet of water. The addition of a compatible wide angle accessory expands the camera's field of view underwater, providing the opportunity to get as close as possible to the subject and reduce the amount of water light passes through. The results speak for themselves - photos with the best color, exposure and clarity possible.

Moderate vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) will be present when using an external wide angle lens. This can be eliminated by zooming in slightly, or cropping the photo in post production. The INON UWL-100 Type 1 lens is not compatible with this housing.
