Ikelite housing

Recommended Posts

Sea and Sea no longer makes the housing for the Canon XTi/400D which is why Adorama told me it was on "backorder". So now I'm going to get the Ikelite. Do the ports for Ikelite attach strait to the housing or is there a piece that needs to go in between. I have a Canon 100mm macro and a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle. What ports do I all need? Sorry for all the questions lately and thanks for the help everyone.

Ikelite has a dedicated port for the Canon 100mm f2.8 USM macro. I have it and like it. It gives you a nice focus knob right on the port. You can easily pick up a web diopter if you want more magnification. The dedicated port attaches directly to the housing body.

 

If you get the 8" dome port, you'll need to get a port body to fit between the dome and the housing. Per the Ikelite Port Chart, you'll need the 5510.16 body.

No need to apologize for asking questions. That's what we're here for!

 

Glad that Wetpixel could be of help to you :D

For the wide angle, Ikelite's website says I need the dome port, the base, and the dome assembly piece. Is there a focusing knob that I need to purchase as well?

I dont thing a manual focus knob is needed, you can use the control on the housing should you need manual focus control.

 

The disadvantage of the custom 100mm port, is that there is not any room anymore for "dry"diopters, should you see the need to use them...
