DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony A57 & A65 SLT Cameras

This heavy-duty clear polycarbonate case is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. A clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal and camera controls provides ease of use and confidence. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m) and only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port (Lens port requiredsold separately.)

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except the diopter adjustment dial, preview button and flash pop-up button and kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glandsproven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle. Recording start/stop while in video mode is accessed effortlessly by the thumb of your right hand.

The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. The live preview feature of the camera is accessible for framing your photos using the camera's LCD screen.

Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two 12-24 screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. A 1/4-20 threaded top mount allows for attachment of a focus light. Accepts #9571.6 optional 1" (2.5cm) or #9573.1 Flex Ball Adapters, sold separately.

Lens Ports (requiredsold separately).
A full range of dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing quality. The modular port system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately.

TTL Exposure with Ikelite DS Substrobes.
We feel that true TTL exposure is so important in underwater photography that we include TTL conversion circuitry in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The TTL conversion circuitry in the housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes. Compared to fiber-optic based systems, hard-wired TTL control provides more correct exposure, quicker recycle times and increases battery life of your camera and strobe.

Exposure can be adjusted directly through the back of the housing using two pushbuttons. Settings are clearly indicated even at night by a series of LED lights. The TTL mode provides four half f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine-tune exposure. Eight manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control.

Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of "automatic" TTL exposure.

Use the #4103.52 dual sync cord to connect two DS Substrobes to your system. All current model Ikelite strobes are fully compatible with this housing. Existing DS Substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Non-Ikelite Strobes.
Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea.
