Complete Canon/Ikelite Underwater Photography/Video Setup, including Canon G9 camera, two housings, DS-51 strobe and accessories.  Perfect lightweight kit for travel. Produces excellent photos and videos.


ASKING $1300


Canon G9 Compact Digital Camera (~$250)


·      12.1 MP, Canon DIGIC III processor, 6x optical zoom (~35-210mm); image stabilization

·      From fully automatic to fully manual settings, and everything in between (Aperture priority, Shutter priority, Program, scene modes), even manual focus (great for complete control underwater)

·      Underwater white balance works exceptionally well in color correction underwater, with and without strobe

·      Movie mode (1024x768, with audio – excellent in capturing underwater sounds)

·      RAW mode for extensive post processing and editing

·      Exposure bracketing, compensation, multiple flash modes (slow sync, rear curtain sync, flash exposure compensation)

·      Bright, detailed 3” LCD screen; multiple view modes for quick exposure checks underwater (histogram, focus check, etc.)

·      Two custom settings modes via top dial – allows for quick changes to complete system settings (e.g., one for macro, one for wide)

·      Exceptional macro performance – great for underwater small critters

·      Extra Canon Lithium ion battery – perfect for spare

·      Canon compact charger

·      Canon leather case

·      Pristine lens; tiny scratches in one corner of screen

·      Cosmetic-only case ding (see photo)


Ikelite housing (~$400)

·      Allows complete access to ALL camera controls for full flexibility underwater

·      Housing uses hot shoe for TTL substrobe control

·      Well-maintained, excellent optics

·      Two diffusers for use with internal flash

·      Additional dual-strobe tray to add a second substrobe


Canon WP-DC21 Housing (~$150)

·      More compact housing, great for shallow dives, snorkeling or when you want smaller rig

·      Does not support TTL strobe metering

·      Ikelite EV controller for strobe usage (~$100)

·      Separate smaller Ikelite tray for strobe usage


Ikelite DS-51 Digital TTL Substrobe (~$400)

·      Newer model for full TTL compatibility

·      Fast recycle time (especially with TTL)

·      Perfect size and coverage for macro, portrait and wide angle

·      Easy switching between TTL, auto and manual modes underwater

·      Coiled TTL sync cord (~$100)

·      Runs on 4xAA batteries (recommend NiMH for fastest recycle)
