IKELITE Housing for CANON SX270 HS/ SX280 HS
The Ikelite housing for the Canon PowerShot SX280 HS is just-right-sized for carefree travel and a comfortable hold with or without a thick glove. All important camera functions are at your fingertips using a series of heavy duty, custom made mechanical controls. A built-in air cushion is our secret for reduced possibility of fogging due to trapped moisture and superior buoyancy control—especially important for shooting steady HD video. Expand your system by adding an AF35 AutoFlash or optional tray with release handle(s), attached with two screws for improved stability underwater and quick break-down during travel. Tray and handles provide superb handling above and below water and act as a jump-off point for your lighting system.
Unleash your creativity with wide angle and macro options.
The optional WD-4 Wide Angle Dome corrects for refraction to provide the camera’s widest angle of coverage with virtually none of the corner softness typically associated with underwater wide angle lenses. There’s no need to limit yourself to wide angle for an entire dive, as the dome can be easily removed and replaced underwater. If you’re interested in close-up photography, opt for the Macro Adapter and attach any macro lens with a standard 67mm thread.
Clearly superior strength and assurance.
Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure. We believe there’s no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. Our 100% clear back lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you’re diving. And did we mention that polycarbonate never bubbles or flakes and is fundamentally corrosion-resistant?
Quality in engineering, manufacturing and service.
