Underwater TTL Housing for Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i (Kiss X4) DSLR

Size and Weight.

    .5 x 6.75 x 6.5" incluing knobs and port locks (24 x 17 x 16.5cm).
    13.25 x 8 x 6.5" including tray and handles (33 x 20 x 16.5cm).
    7.15 lbs (3.24kg) with tray and handles. Port not included.
    Neutrally buoyant in saltwater depending on choice of lens and port.

Lens Ports.
    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.
Strobe Use and TTL Exposure.
    We feel that TTL exposure is so important in underwater photography that we include TTL conversion circuitry in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The Canon eTTL2 conversion circuitry in the housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes.

    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 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.

    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.

Lighting Options for Video Recording.
    Light is essential to bringing out the vibrancy and colors of underwater life in your video. Several options are available to add a video light to this system:

    The DS161 Movie Substrobe combines the warm, even coverage of our famous Substrobe DS160 with a powerful 500 lumen movie light. This is a perfect way to add performance without adding bulk.

    The Pro-V8 LED Light is a compact and affordable 500 lumen video light. It easily doubles as a focus light and is compatible with any still or video system.

    The Pro Video Lite 3 is the ultimate in output and angle of coverage. Available in 50W or 100W halogen versions. A 100° spread is great for shooting with wide angle lenses. The rechargeable battery pack attaches directly to the bottom of the SLR tray with just two screws.

Spare Parts.
    #0132.59 Main O-Ring
    #0105 Port O-Ring
    #5020 Silicone Lubricant (four 1cc tubes)
    #5512.68 Spare O-Ring Set includes one #0132.59 o-ring, one #0105 o-ring and one 1cc tube of silicone lubricant
