For the most discerning of underwater photographers Ikelite offers a full-featured yet affordable camera housing for the Canon Powershot SX130 IS digital camera. 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 Tray with Dual Release Handles #9523.62 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.
Includes one 1cc tube of silicone lubricant, vinyl port cover, flash diffuser and flash deflector.
- Size and Weight.
7.25" wide (10.25" with tray) x 8.4" high x 6.25" deep.
18cm (26cm with tray) x 21cm x 16cm.
Dimensions include controls & lens port.
4.75lb (2.15kg) above water.
Slightly negatively buoyant underwater.
- Camera's Built-in Flash.
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 an external underwater strobe is recommended.
- External Color Filters.
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. Available as #6441.46 for
tropical blue water and #6441.86 for use in green water settings.
- External Underwater Strobes.
Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. Being farther from the camera lens, the optional DS Substrobe aids in reducing the illumination of particles in the water and helps to eliminate backscatter.
Trigger any DS Substrobe off the camera's built-in flash using the EV Manual Controller. Available in complete strobe packages which provide everything you need for breathtaking photos.
The optional #9571.3 1" Ball with Stem 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.
- Pro-V8 LED Video Lite.
Mounts to the top of the release handle using #9573.3 adapter for additional lighting when using the camera's movie mode. For use with or without a color filter.
- Dual Tray and Handles.
Optional #9523.52 dual tray with release handles provides exceptional handling and a second attachment point for DS Substrobes or the Pro-V8 LED Video Lite.
- External Wide Angle Adapter.
The WD-4 Wide Angle Conversion Dome corrects for refractive magnification to give 28mm angle of coverage underwater. The conversion dome may be removed and replaced underwater and requires no modification to the housing's standard port.
- External Macro Adapter.
Optional macro adapter #9306.82 slides over the front of the lens port and allows for the attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. The adapter may be removed and replaced underwater and requires no modification to the housing's standard lens port. Macro lens not available for purchase through Ikelite.
Not for use with 67mm threaded wide angle lenses. External wide angle conversion lenses cannot be used effectively with the Canon SX130 camera.
- Carrying Case.
Optional #3920 Soft-Sided Case accommodates the SX130 Housing with a single Substrobe DS51, strobe arm and accessories.
