Digital camera compatible "S-TTL" Auto strobe INON S-2000 / Z-240 / D-2000 is usable.
"S-TTL" auto of S-2000 / Z-240 / D-2000 series gives you correct and reliable exposure by simply pressing shutter release button.

INON LED flashlight LE700-W / LE700-S / LE350 is also usable to use as focus light or assisting light.

Thanks to collaboration between Canon and INON, recent Canon underwater housings are equipped with "accessory shoe" and "fiber optics mount" which also shades built-in flash light, to hold an INON strobe/LED flashlight and accept fiber optics connection by simply plug a rubber bush which comes with "Optical D Cable Type L Double Hole Rubber Bush Set".

"Accessory Shoe"(squared U-shaped metal plate)

"Fiber Optics Mount"(detachable black component)

The rubber bush of the "Optical D Cable Type L

is directly plugged in the "Fiber Optics Mount".

There are two choices for strobe/light arm; "Shoe Base" / "Shoe Base Set" (*9) which directly holds compatible strobe/LED flashlight on standard "accessory shoe" of recent Canon underwater housings to support compact external strobe/flashlight set-up, or universal type "Grip Base D4" / "Grip Base D4 Set" which widely supports more than 100 underwater housings with loose-proof structure and broad expandability including supporting dual strobe configuration, different arm length/type depending on your shooting style.
