The Ikelite Canon 90D 200DL Underwater Housing, brings affordability to a professional level, high end cameras. This robust and well built housing is a perfect way to get the quality and speed of the camera without tripling the cost of the system as with many aluminum housing options. At Bluewater Photo, we are a huge fan of Ikelite housings and this one will surely not disappoint!
The housing has been uses the Ikelite's DryLock Port System which 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. The ports are very light yet robust and capable of standing up to a beating. Attachment is quick, easy and secure. A system of extensions can accommodate a huge variety of lenses with ease.
It comes with a vacuum valve already pre-installed with the underwater housing. The optional Ikelite Vacuum Pump with Gauge which allows you to draw air from the housing and check for leaks prior to entering the water. Drawing a vacuum on the system also provides extra security at the surface of the water, especially important when using the housing in rough surf.
Handling & Travel
Aside from the vacuum valve that is included, the Ikelite tray with left handle is included as well. It has been optimized to provide stability and easy handling. The new hard anodized aluminum base with quick release handle has also been streamlined for travel and is over 3/4 pound lighter than their previous DSLR tray and handle system. The Right-Hand Quick Release Handle # 4077.02 (sold separately) can be added or removed depending on how you want to shoot. A 1/4-20 threaded mounting point is located front and center on the housing above the lens port mount. This mount can be used to attach lightweight accessories like a focus light or GoPro camera.
If you're shooting with two strobe or lighting arms, then a top handle can be added to make the system easier to carry to and from the dive site. Top handles are available in a Cable Grip # 4080.07 or Aluminum Top Handle # 4080.08. The rigid aluminum version provides additional mounting points for lighting and accessories.
Controls and Set-Up
Ergonomics and ease of use is one of the most important aspect in an underwater housing that we need to consider. With a housing that has excellent ergonomics and controls, it would allow you to concentrate more on your composition, focus and exposure. The housing provides superb erogonomics and operation is a breeze. Large and curved control levers are located right where you need them. The rotating controls are all operated intuitively via premium soft-touch knobs. An oversized, lobed knob puts the zoom/focus knob at your fingertips while your left hand stays on the handle. Stainless steel, direct-drive rotating controls are virtually fail-safe and user serviceable and adjustable in a pinch.
All rear camera buttons are accessible by smooth action, hard anodized aluminum push buttons for reliable performance and easy maintenance. These controls are clearly labeled by laser engraving on the back of the housing that never fades or falls off.
This housings supports your choice of shooting with manual strobe exposure or adding a TTL converter depending on your application. The flash bulkhead is located on the top of the case to alleviate strain on the sync cord.
You can enjoy the fastest and most accurate TTL exposure on the market by adding the Ikelite CT3K Canon TTL Kit and a compatible Ikelite DS strobe. Exposure compensation can be used added or subtracted in the camera.
Reliable locking connectors between the hotshoe and bulkhead make it easy to install the optional ST1K TTL Kit for Sony Alpha or carry back up parts when traveling to remote locations.
The housing already comes with the SuperEye Viewfinder which enhances the view of the cameras EVF. This can easily be replaces with the Ikelite Straight 180° Viewfinder or Ikelite 45° Viewfinder.
The housing is only compatible with strobes which can be connected with electronic sync cord. Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation
