Ikelite 6146.19 Underwater TTL Housing for Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II
The Ikelite 6146.19 Underwater TTL Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II digital cameras. Perfect for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
A slide-in, front loading camera mount makes this housing a breeze to set up and shoot. Controls are provided for all important camera functions including front and rear control dials. Controls are placed in an intuitive position and designed for comfortable access whether you’re holding the housing or an add-on handle.
A sensitive shutter lever makes it easy to half-depress the trigger for focusing and metering. Rear push button controls are laser engraved for identification with a new bright red push button for the video record start/stop.
The camera’s large LCD screen can be seen clearly through the back of the housing.
Due to the position of the camera’s flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water.
Circuitry built into this housing allows the camera to communicate directly with compatible underwater strobes . When connected via this circuitry, the camera learns that an external flash is attached and is able to more accurately adjust exposure by knowing this. The camera’s flash will not fire, eliminating the shutter lag associated with waiting for the camera’s flash to recycle.
In order to communicate with the camera, compatible Ikelite DS strobes must be connected to the housing’s electrical bulkhead using a single or dual TTL sync cord.
Non-Ikelite strobes may be connected to this bulkhead using a compatible sync cord, however the housing’s circuitry will not receive power and the strobes will operate in manual exposure modes only.
Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords. The housing’s built-in TTL circuitry will not be operable when external strobes are attached via fiber optic cord.
Any Ikelite DS strobe may be connected using the Fiber Optic Converter # 4401.1 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.
The standard 3.9″ diameter optical glass port accommodates the camera’s full zoom range underwater.
The ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance 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 color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

Other Canon G1X Mark I and Mark III cameras are not usable in this housing due to differences in lens and control placement.
The Canon Enhanced Grip GR-DC1A cannot be used in this installation, as the thickness of this grip interferes with gearing necessary to drive the camera’s front control ring. Please note that some European models may be shipped with the larger “Enhanced Grip” and that this grip must be removed prior to installation. Cameras featuring the “standard” grip as shown on the Canon USA website may be used without modification.
