For the most discerning of underwater photographers we offer a full-featured yet affordable camera housing for Canon Powershot G11 & G12 digital cameras. This durable housing is molded of crystal clear polycarbonate for corrosion free operation up to a depth of 200ft (60m). Every camera function is accessible in this very sophisticated housing installation.


The included tray and release handle offers balance and exceptional handling while providing a convenient attachment point for optional Substrobe mounting arms. Strobe arms can be released easily at the touch of a button whether above or below water. The optional Dual Handle and Tray assembly #9523.32 provides even greater stability and allows for the addition of a second Substrobe.

The housing comes standard with an optical grade glass flat port which allows full use of the camera's zoom range without vignetting. A flash diffuser is included to improve image quality when using the camera's built-in flash to illuminate the subject. The camera's flash is relatively weak for underwater use and partially blocked by the housing's port. Effective use is limited to macro photography at a distance of less than 2 feet (0.6m).

Special conversion circuitry built in to the housing provides true Canon eTTL exposure connected to any current model Ikelite DS Substrobe. The camera controls the Substrobe's output resulting in effortlessly perfect exposure.

Size and Weight
  • 7" wide x 6" high x 6" deep (10" wide with tray and handle attached)
  • 17.8cm x 15.2cm x 15.2cm
  • Less than 6lbs (2.7kg) above water with camera installed
  • Slightly negative in saltwater for stability
Color Correcting Filters
Optional color correcting filters replace some of the reds and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost. Available for tropical blue water and green water settings. Filters are effective in shallow, sunny conditions depending on water clarity. For optimum results use in combination with manual white balance (see camera user guide for information on setting custom white balance).

#6441.46 UR/Pro filter for tropical blue water
#6441.86 UR/Pro filter for green water

Lighting Options
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.

All current model strobes are fully compatible with this TTL system. Older DS substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea. Non-Ikelite strobes can be used in manual modes only.

Strobes with a slave feature can be triggered by the camera's flash or by an Ikelite Substrobe. An included flash deflector prevents the camera's flash from creating backscatter in the image.

The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.
