Ikelite has announced that two underwater housings will soon be available for Canon's latest offering in the G-series - the Canon G16.
The TTL Housing for the Canon G16 gives photographers the opportunity to tweak their TTL exposure or take total manual control without taking their hands of the housing. Plus, a large, simple dial directly above the camera's LCD viewfinder acts as a remote control for Ikelite DS-series strobes. Users will be able to access plus/minus exposure compensation in TTL mode and 7 manual power settings in half-stop increments.
The Fibre Optic Housing for the Canon G16 os geared towards owners of optical strobes. The housing is smaller than the TTL version and thumb grips replace the tray and handle assembly. Drop-in camera loading and a visible o-ring seal make it easy to set up and two built-in ports accept Ikelite-type fiber optic cables for the triggering of single or dual Manta optical TTL strobes.
Both housings have a depth rating to 60m and are built by divers in the USA.
Pricing and availability:
The TTL Housing has an RRP of £549.99 and will be available in December while the Fibre Optic Housing has an RRP of £449.99 and will be available from November.
