Dive into underwater photography with this compact and simple to use combination. 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 200ft (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 attachment of optional trays and lighting 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 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 #6441.31 for tropical blue water and #6441.71 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.
EV Manual Controller Update.
EV Manual Controllers produced before July '10 require an electronics update to be compatible with this camera's pre-flash. EV Manual Controllers purchased on or after April 1, 2010 are eligible for a complimentary upgrade if returned to Ikelite with proof of purchase. Older working EV Manual Controllers can be updated at a cost of $50.00 plus return freight. Controllers produced after July 1, 2010 require no modification. All service items must be returned freight pre-paid. No collect or COD shipments will be accepted and no freight reimbursements will be issued.
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, Inon Type II and Epoque lenses using the #9306.78 port adapter. This adapter may also be used to attach 67mm threaded macro lenses.

Attach bayonet style Inon macro or UWL-100 28AD wide angle lenses using the #9306.85 port adapter. UWL-105AD and UFL-165AD lenses may also be attached using this adapter but only provide a slight benefit due to severe vignetting.
Moderate vignetting (shading in the corners) will be present in the widest setting when using an external accessory lens. Unless otherwise noted, this effect is minimal and can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.
