Ikelite 6146.17 Underwater housing TTL for Canon PowerShot G16
The Ikelite 6146.17 Underwater TTL Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Canon PowerShot G16 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This compact and lightweight housing provide all important functions of the Canon PowerShot G16 up to depths of 200 feet (60m). Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions including the rear dial and custom function controls. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off. 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.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon G16’s flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The 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 circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes attached via electrical sync cord will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
This housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera’s external flash hot shoe. Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. The threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use. The bulkhead connection has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends. A variety of sync cord terminations are available for Ikelite, SEA&SEA, INON, or Nikonos strobes for ultimate versatility.
The camera’s built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers. Use of a fiber optic connector requires the camera’s built-in flash to fire, reducing battery life and bypassing the TTL functionality of the housing.
Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray and handle system.
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.
