The Ikelite Underwater Housing is an underwater housing for the Canon PowerShot G15 digital compact camera and comes with a 2-point mounting tray with rubber grip and quick-release socket for a lighting arm. The Ikelite housing is suitable for use in depths up to 60m and the all-important camera functions are at your finger-tips and easily accessible thanks to the heavy-duty, large mechanical controls. There is a 67mm filter thread on the port for direct attachment of optional wide-angle and macro lenses (no adapter needed). The internal flash is partially blocked by the lens port and an external flash or strobe is recommended for good quality artificial-light photography.

Other housings simply waterproof your camera. An Ikelite Smart Housing improves your photos.
TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. Only Ikelite Smart Housings are able to tell your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately*. Spend more time showing off great photos, and less time tinkering in Photoshop.
Stop the drain on your camera's battery.
Fiber optic slave flash units require the camera's flash to fire every time. This acts as a constant drain on your camera's battery life and recycle time between shots. An Ikelite Smart Housing translates direct electrical impulses from your camera, triggering your strobe and precisely adjusting its power without the need to fire the camera's flash.
No mis-fires. Period.
In-line communication between the strobe and the camera completely eliminates signal interference and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off.
Comfort and control come standard.
For a system of this caliber, a tray and handle is essential to good handling, balance underwater and attachment of external lighting. An aluminum tray with rubberized grip is included with the Ikelite housing for the Canon Powershot G15, providing comfortable hold and a quick release point for strobe and video arms. The complete handle assembly removes with just two screws for traveling or to attach the optional dual tray and handles.
The Ikelite housing for the Canon Powershot G15 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. 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.
Unleash your creativity with wide angle and macro options.
Replace the standard front lens port with our special, shorter, wide angle port to leverage the power of any 67mm threaded wide angle lens. We recommend the W-30 because of its improved permeability, clarity and brightness over similar options. Or choose the WD-4 Wide Angle Dome which corrects for refraction to provide the camera's widest angle of coverage with crystal clear corners. 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?
