DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sigma DP1, DP2, DP3 Merrill


Dive into underwater photography with this compact yet sophisticated system. Durable polycarbonate and acrylic construction provides a unique view of the camera to ensure correct waterproof installation and confidence underwater.

Construction
Simply close the two stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. Large, ergonomic controls provide access to all camera functions. An included tray with soft-grip handle provides comfortable handling underwater and our signature quick release attachment system for lighting accessories.

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. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

Flash
The housing port is designed to accept color filter, wide angle, and macro options for 3.9-inch diameter ports. 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.

An electrical hot shoe and waterproof bulkhead allow direct connection of either Ikelite or non-Ikelite strobes. Manual exposure settings must be used when attaching and external underwater strobe, regardless of strobe model or sync cord. This housing does not support TTL exposure with any strobes.

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.
