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 except the rear control dial are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200 ft. (60m). Easy open latch and drop in cameraloading 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.
The #6242.10 housing operates properly with the Canon Powershot S100 camera only. Due to differences in camera dimensions and control locations we do not support or recommend use of Canon Powershot S90 or S95 models in this installation.
Trays with Release Handles
Optional Tray with Release Handle(s) provide comfortable handling underwater and attachment points for substrobes and accessories.
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 #6441.41 for tropical blue water and #6441.81 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 morebackscatter than the camera's built-in flash. Don't settle 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 Accessory Lenses
An external wide angle conversion lens increases angle of coverage so you can get much closer to your subject while still fitting everything in the frame. By reducing the amount of water between the subject and your camera lens, the resulting image will be more crisp and colorful
Attach 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20 and other lenses directly to the front of the port. This housing is not compatible with bayonet-style accessory lenses.
Moderate vignetting (shading in the corners) will be present in the widest setting when using an external accessory lens. This effect can be eliminated by zooming in to approximately 33mm equivalent.
Compact Travel Bag
The optional #3910 Compact Travel Bag is the perfect carry-on for this digital system. Padded sides and divider provide just the right amount of protection foryour photo equipment, laptop, electronic devices and personal items. Ample zippered and non-zippered pockets keep all of the essentials right at your fingertips.
