The Canon EOS 200D Rebel SL2 is a welcome upgrade to the hugely popular EOS 100D Rebel SL1 Compact DSLR Camera. What makes this system so different from mirrorless and even other DSLR systems? The fact that the camera body is compact and lightweight, ergonomically shaped like a DSLR, and capable of accepting Canon EF mount lenses.
Whether you've been shooting a full-frame DSLR or a compact point-and-shoot, the EOS 200D Rebel SL2 may be the best next step. This system combines fast focus, 24 megapixel resolution, TTL exposure, and great battery life into a housing that's half the size and weight of all other DSLR models.
This powerful compact housing includes all of Ikelite's latest upgrades to controls and ergonomics. The shutter lever has been updated to a more sensitive and natural feeling curved design. The standard control hugs the side of the housing for comfortable use when hand holding. It can be easily extended using the optional Shutter Trigger Extension #4077.93 to put it within easy reach when using a right-hand quick release handle.
New soft-touch control knobs add comfort and extra grip to the most commonly used functions. Ikelite push buttons have been redesigned to reduce weight and salt build-up. The back of the housing features laser engraved control symbols which will never fade or fall off.
The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.
The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the o-ring for simple and confident assembly. We have eliminated the need for an o-ring groove or channel which can trap sand, dirt, or debris. Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The clear back allows you to see the o-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit #47012. A vacuum kit allows you to pressurize the housing to check for proper assembly prior to entering the water.
Light is absorbed as it travels through even short distances underwater, making colors appear dull or monochromatic. To preserve the natural colors of your subject, it's important to stay within arm's reach—no more than 3-4 feet (1m) away. For the best results, we recommend adding an external flash or high-powered constant-on light if you'll be diving regularly below 15' (3m).
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Canon EOS 200D Rebel SL2 flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control. The TTL system can be used with current model Ikelite DS series strobes. Refer to the Strobe Compatibility section for serial number requirements.
SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes are not capable of powering the circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
