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 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 #6441.41 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 more backscatter 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 for your photo equipment, laptop, electronic devices and personal items. Ample zippered and non-zippered pockets keep all of the essentials right at your fingertips.
