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 most effective between 1-3 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 #6441.32 for tropical blue water and #6441.72 for use in green water settings.
External Underwater Strobes.
AutoFlash AF-35 Ikelite strobes are much more powerful, recycle more quickly, and eliminate more backscatter than the camera's built-in flash. Don't settle for flat, blue-green images. The AutoFlash AF35 (pictured at right) is an easy and affordable way to add a strobe to your system. The AF35 is effective up to approximately 5 feet (1.5m) from the subject and restores the colors that are otherwise lost. 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. Several options are available for attaching an external wide angle or macro lens:
· Attach 46mm threaded macro lenses directly to the front of the housing port. 46mm threaded wide angle lenses may be attached but are not recommended due to extreme vignetting.
· Attach 67mm threaded macro lenses using the #9306.81 port adapter. 67mm threaded wide angle lenses may also be attached using this adapter but are not recommended due to extreme vignetting.
· Attach Bayonet style Inon UWL-100 28AD or macro lenses using the #9306.79 port adapter. Moderate vignetting (shading in the corners) may be present in the widest setting when using a wide angle lens. This can be eliminated by zooming in slightly. UWL-105AD and UFL-165AD lenses may also be attached using this adapter but provide no benefit due to extreme vignetting.
Optional #3910 Travel Bag is the perfect carry-on for your compact system. Padded sides and divider provide just the right amount of protection for your photo equipment, laptop, electronic devices and personal items.
