Ikelite 6146.08 Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II
The Ikelite 6146.08 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Canon PowerShot G7 X cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This compact and lightweight housing provide full operation of the camera up to depths of 200 feet (60m). Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions including the front and rear dials. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off.
A new, ultra sensitive shutter lever and front rubberized grip make the system a pleasure to hold and shoot with or without an optional tray and handle. The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.
The glass lens port has been optimized for full use of the camera’s zoom range.
The front of the lens port is 67mm threaded for the direct attachment of external wide angle and macro lenses. This port is as close to the camera’s lens as possible for the best image quality and minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image) with external wet lenses. Vignetting can be eliminated by cropping the photo in post-production. The INON UWL-H100 exhibits the least vignetting and best clarity with this model among popular wet lenses currently available on the market.
The location of the camera’s flash in relation to the lens makes it unusable for lighting your subject underwater. However, the camera’s flash may be used to trigger an external strobe. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optically triggered underwater strobes.
Alternatively, a bright constant-on video light can be used.
The brand new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance year after year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light gray color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

Compatibility: Differences in camera size and lens placement prevent the original Canon PowerShot G7X from operating in this housing. For the same reason, the housing for the Canon PowerShot G7X cannot be modified or adapted to fit the newer Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II.
As a cost-effective alternative, we also recommend the underwater action housing # 6245.08!
