Ikelite Housing for Canon G7X Mark II Camera
Camera not included; shown for illustrative purposes only.
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. Ikelite backs its products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.
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 and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter - or "snow" - from your underwater images.
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.
We recommend the Ikelite W30 Wide Angle Lens or Inon UWL-H100 Wide Angle Lens for excellent edge sharpness with minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image). Vignetting may be eliminated by either zooming slightly or cropping in post-production.
