SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Weight: 17.8 oz (505 g)
  • 6 x 4.6 x 4.5" (152 x 117 x 114 mm)

CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

  • Depth rating of 200'/ 60m
  • Constructed by hand in USA from corrosion-resistant ABS and polycarbonate blend, which is light gray/off-white on front, sides, top, and bottom, but clear in back to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and rear camera controls
  • Light gray/off-white color reflects sunlight to keep camera cool when shooting at or above water's surface, and offers better contrast for improved viewing of camera, monitor, and O-ring seal
  • Controls made of acetyl plastic
  • Compact, lightweight design is well-suited to action video recording and makes for easy storage and transport

OPTIONAL LIGHTING

  • Two ports allow optional fiber-optic cables to use camera's built-in flash to trigger external strobes

CONTROLS AND HANDLING

  • Affords access to important camera functions via ergonomic, mechanical controls, including push buttons and a knurled dial with a small lever
  • Shutter button, power on/off, zoom (wide/telephoto) lever, movie button, erase button, MENU button, up/down/left/right buttons, FUNC./SET button, and playback button are all accessible
  • Central, bottom-mounted 1/4"-20 threaded hole provides attachment point for optional tray with handles, which improves balance while offering mounting points for lighting arms
  • Slightly positive buoyancy in fresh water

LENS PORT

  • Built-in, flat, optical glass lens port with a scratch-resistant front element, 3" diameter, and 67mm filter thread
  • Provides full use of the camera's zoom range without vignetting
  • Optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro accessory lenses from Ikelite, INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers can be attached directly to front of port
  • Wide-angle lenses provide greater angle of coverage to allow you to fit more in frame, while macro lenses magnify your image to enable close-ups with greater clarity and detail
  • Both types of conversion lenses get you closer to subjects, reducing amount of water in between you and therefore minimizing distortion
  • Wide-angle lenses often result in some vignetting, which can be reduced/eliminated by zooming in, using smaller aperture, or cropping in editing/post-production phase
  • Recommended WD-3 Wide-Angle Dome provides mid-range angle of view with no vignetting
  • Optional, external color-correction filters, available for tropical blue and green water, can be attached via press-fit method to front of port to restore hues that get absorbed underwater
  • Since color filters reduce amount of light that enters lens, they are most effective in sunny conditions at depths of about 80' or less
  • Color filters not recommended for use in conjunction with external lighting, as combination can throw off color accuracy in images
  • Most wide-angle lenses require a filter with a 3.6" diameter
