0

Can you imagine not capturing that special moment at a wedding, family vacation or even a beautiful underwater coral formation? How about a wreck dive? Even if you do have an underwater digital camera, what guarantee is there of the quality it produces?

The solution for all those problems is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. With the ever advancing of technologies, the features of this camera are second to none. By combining an Ikelite housing or EWA-Marine underwater camera housing with the Mark II, it can be converted into an underwater digital camera with the ability to perform with precision, accuracy and quality underwater.

This heavy-duty clear polycarbonate case is contoured into the camera. It is durable and completely corrosion free. Unlike aluminum housings there is a clear view of the main "o-ring" seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m) as it is mechanically controlled. The housing is slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens.

The Canon 5D review will focus on the features of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II with the underwater Ikelite housing that places it above all other underwater digital cameras.

A lot of underwater digital cameras have a downside and that is picture quality. The Mark II dive camera has the all new 21.1 mega pixel CMOS sensor and one of the highest ISO ranges (100-6400: expandable)  to date. It also has the new DIGIC 4 processor which provides smooth gradations and shade and also accurate color renditions. Its HD video capture allows photographers to fire off single or continuous stills while video capture continues. This even happens after the final frame is captured. This dive camera also has a 3.0 inch VGA resolution LCD which gives the user a 170 degree viewing angle. This feature provides plenty of clarity with accurate focus.

For areas with tricky lighting conditions, the spot metering circle which has a 9-point auto focus system covers only 3.5 percent of the frame. Another problem with most underwater digital cameras is that the controls can be quite mind boggling. However, this is not the case for the Mark II with its all new and improved Quick Control Screen.
