The Ikelite ULTRAcompact digital housing really delivers when performance and durability matter. The ULTRAcompact housing is high quality, built to last and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence.
All camera controls are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200 ft. (60m). Easy open latch and drop in camera loading make set-up a breeze
Two 12-24 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for the secure, rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting accessories.
Trays with Release Handles
Optional Tray with Release Handle(s) provide comfortable handling underwater and attachment points for substrobes and accessories
Camera's Built-in Flash
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.
External Color Filters
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. Available as #6441.46 for tropical blue water and #6441.86 for use in green water settings. For optimum results use in combination with manual white balance (see camera user guide for information on setting custom white balance).
External Underwater Strobes
Ikelite strobes are much more powerful, recycle more quickly, and eliminate more backscatter than the camera's built-in flash. Don'tsettle for flat, blue-green images. Use the AutoFlash AF35 for easy automatic exposure. Or add an optional DS Substrobe with EV Manual Controller for more power and wider angle of coverage. For the best results in all conditions.
Pro-V8 LED Video Lite
For additional lighting when using the camera's movie mode and to aid in focus. For use with or without a color filter.
External Wide Angle Option.
The WD-4 Wide Angle Conversion Dome corrects for refractive magnification to give 28mm angle of coverage underwater. The conversion dome may be removed and replaced underwater and requires no modification to the housing's standard port.
Other external wide angle lenses by Ikelite, Inon, Epoque and other manufacturers are not usable with this camera at this time.
External Macro Adapter.
Optional adapter #9306.82 (MSRP $50) slides over the front of the lens port and allows for the attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. The adapter may be removed and replaced underwater and requires no modification to the housing's standard lens port. Macro lens not available for purchase through Ikelite.
Not for use with 67mm threaded wide angle lenses.
