Product Highlights
  • Mechanical Controls
  • Compact & Simple To Use
  • Easy-Open Latch
  • Drop-In Camera Loading
  • Rated Down to 200'

This Ikelite 5611.01 Underwater Video Housing is a compact mechanical underwater housing designed for the Flip SlideHD camcorder. The housing is incredibly compact and simple to use. All outer controls are fully functional through the housing, but the slide strip and menu functions on the inner slide screen are not accessible while in the housing. The housings allow you to take video at depths down to 200' (60m). The easy open latch and drop in camera loading makes setting up the housing a breeze.

The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. The included UR/Pro color correcting filter for tropical blue water replaces some of the reds and your video will have a more natural tone. The filter is effective in 80' of water or less, depending on conditions. The optional #6441.71 color filter is available for use in green water.

Another way to correct for underwater color loss is by shining a color corrected light source on your subject. The Ikelite Pro-V8 LED Video Lite is perfect to bring back the ocean's true colors. The Pro-V8 features a warm, even 45° beam angle with a 10-hour burn time. The flex arm allows the light to be repositioned effortlessly. The optional Video Compact Tray #9523.51 is required.

The closer you are to your subject the better your underwater video will be. The use of a wide-angle lens allows this to happen. By eliminating as much water as possible between you and your subject, you will increase contrast and improve color. You can attach the optional 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20 lens to the housing using the optional port adapter #9306.78. The wide angle conversion lens can be attached and removed when underwater for maximum versatility.

      Comments about Ikelite 5611.01 Underwater Video Housing for the Flip SlideHD Camcorder:

      Extremely easy to use and maintain, I was able to take a video "like a pro" as soon as I started using the Flip camcorder in its new housing. I'm now planning to add a matching floodlight in order to get true colors at lower depths. I wish I could add the link to that video so people can judge for themselves.
