Ikelite 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M6 II Mirrorless Digital Camera

The 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for the Canon EOS M6 II is the perfect companion allowing use of the Canon EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera in or around the water for scuba, snorkeling, surf, pool, or any adventure.

Canon EOS M6 Mark II

The EOS M6 II has an all new 32.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Dual Pixel AF. Unlike its predecessor it has joined the modern times and now supports 4K UHD video recording at either 30p or 25p.

Good ergonomics are critical when you need to concentrate on composition, focus, and proper exposure. Large, curved control levers put the most important controls right where you need them: shutter and autofocus (via the AF/MF button). This combination allows you to shoot with or without back button focus, an advanced technique that is useful for tack sharp focus of super macro and fast moving subjects. Each lever can be extended using the optional Shutter Trigger Extension (4077.93) for perfect spacing when using a right-hand handle.

The control dial, rear control wheel, mode dial, power, and lens release controls are all operated intuitively via premium soft-touch knobs. Stainless steel, direct-drive rotating controls are virtually fail-safe and user serviceable and adjustable in a pinch.

All rear camera buttons are accessible by smooth action, hard anodized aluminum push buttons for reliable performance and easy maintenance. These controls are clearly labeled by laser engraving on the back of the housing that never fades or falls off.

Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for simple, rotation-free attachment of a tray and handle system. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts. The Tray with Dual Quick Release Handles (9523.64) is the most popular choice for both handling and attachment of accessories.

Set-Up

The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.

Confidence

The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the o-ring for simple and confident assembly. Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The clear back allows you to see the o-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes.

Vacuum Testing

A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit (47012). A vacuum kit allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to check for leaks prior to entering the water.

However, OOS strongly suggests the addition of the Leak Sentinel Electronic vacuum check system that monitors the housing both before, and during, the dive and warns you of any problems, before they become leaks.

Viewfinders

The camera's large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing. The LCD may be tilted during installation for more comfortable viewing underwater.

Lighting

The camera's built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers.

Port System

This housing accepts ports from the DLM Port System to accommodate a selection of the best zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses for underwater use.

Durability and corrosion free performance

Ikelite's white ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. ABS-PC is lighter than aluminum for convenience during travel and less drag underwater. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

Made in USA

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials.

Compatibility

The Canon EOS M6 (Mark I) camera is very similar in size and configuration. Differences in lens placement prevent the camera from being used interchangeably in the same housing. This housing only accommodates the EOS M6 Mark II camera.

This housing is only compatible with the Canon cameras as shipped by the manufacturer. Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, battery grips, eyepieces, LCD covers, or other accessories.

Lens port sold separately; A compatible DLM lens port is required for waterproof operation.
