The Ikelite housing for the Leica C camera is just-right-sized for carefree travel and a comfortable hold with or without a thick glove. All important camera functions are at your finger tips using a series of heavy duty, custom made mechanical controls. With a camera installed, the housing's buoyancy is near-neutral for comfortable handling and rock steady HD video.
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?
A flash or light makes all the difference. Expand your system by adding an AF35 AutoFlash strobe for spectacular still photos. The AF35 kit provides wireless TTL exposure and attaches with just two screws for easy assembly and break down for travel. Whenever you're ready, add a Gamma LED light, diffuser and AF35 mount to aid in focus and add a pop of color to your video.
An optional wide angle lens allows you to capture more of the scene by increasing your camera's native angle of coverage. The W-30 is specifically designed for digital cameras with 28mm focal length and wider, and provides improved permeability, clarity and brightness over similar external wide angle lenses. There's no need to limit yourself to wide angle for an entire dive, as the W-30 lens can be easily removed and replaced underwater. 67mm threaded close-up lenses also attach directly to the front of the port, no adapter needed. A small amount of vignetting (shading in the corners) will be present when using external wide angle lenses. This effect can be reduced or eliminated by zooming slightly.
Like every Ikelite product, this housing for the Leica C is designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials from trusted vendors we've been working with for decades. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. The average assembly technician is a certified scuba diver and has over 16 years of experience building Ikelite products. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.
