In Topic: Ikelite N90 modified to fit 7D

Hi Steve!
The housing is just slightly positive, front light. But it handled very well.
I added an Ikelite tungsten light to the housing, and was just a little bit negative. Again handled very good. May be I need to fine tune with some little weight (Iīm planning in 2x housed LED lights), but the results are great for me.
Thank you!
Best regards from Buenos Aires.

A sealed (o-rings) acrylic box seems the obvious...

A dome in the front could serve to not reducing the angle of coverage of the light.

Some kind of switch...

I saw one DIY housing made with this.


Donīt know depht rates or if thereīs a box with the measures you need...

Good luck!

I have mine machined.

Not full tested yet, but worked well in basic test.

Iīm on a trip until next wednesday. But if you are interested I can take the measures so you can have an idea to get them machined. It was not that cheap. But the machinist charged the hours of test and try. With the measures I will draw a CAD design and take them to a CNC machine shop for the next set to see if itīs cheaper ("machine exactly this" instead of "ok, lets try with this shaft a little wider").

The cost was a little more than U$ 200 for eight pushbuttons and seven lever controls (not photgraphed). For this last you could just buy them from Ikelite.

The buttons:


I wanted modular pushbuttons, so in different housings for different cameras I have just to drill a hole (10mm in this case) where the button should go.

There is another member that just machined the acrylic cover of his housing to acomodate the pushbuttons.

Good luck with your search.

Best regards

Yes, the dome does matter.

Different domes (different radius) will have a different distance to the lens. And I think a standard dome could have a different distance than a WA dome (like the Fathom).

Wich dome have you bought?
I purchased a 6īIkelite for the housing Iīm planning for a 7D. For the Z1 could work if I desing it to work in wide angle, but I doubt I could have zoom through capabilities.

Iīll keep searching and let you know.

Best regards
