The Ikelite 5660.05 Underwater Housing for Kodak Zx5 Playsport Video Camera is a durable polycarbonate waterproof case that allows you to use your Kodak Zx5 Playsport Video Camera underwater. The housing is incredibly compact and simple to use. All camera controls except the "share" button are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200' (60 m). The easy-open latch and drop-in camera loading makes setting up the housing a breeze. The housing comes with a 1 cc tube of silicone lubricant and a vinyl lanyard.

The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. The included removable UR/Pro color correcting filter for tropical blue water replaces some of the reds and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. 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 great for bringing 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 Video Compact Tray #9523.51 is required and sold separately.

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 67 mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20 lens, as well as Inon Type II and Epoque wide angle and macro lenses to the housing using the optional port adapter #9306.78. Additionally, you can attach bayonet style Inon macro and UWL-100 28AD, UWL-105AD or UFL-165AD wide angle lenses using the #9306.85 port adapter.

          Comments about Ikelite 5660.05 Underwater Housing for Kodak Zx5 Playsport Video Camera:

          One dive so far with this case. This is my first Ikelite product and I'm quite impressed. The controls are large and easy to use with gloves on in cold pacific northwest waters. The unit is easy to hold steady while filming. The unit is very buoyant; however with lights I'm sure it will become more neutral. I do wish there was a ring to attach to my bcd instead of the flimsy wrist strap. Overall, great product!

              The Playsport fit perfectly, the view screen is easy to see. All the controls function as they do on land, very easy and manageble. It took no time to adapt to using it. Got some great video from Bonaire!

              Comments about Ikelite 5660.05 Underwater Housing for Kodak Zx5 Playsport Video Camera:

              It pained me to pay twice the cost of the camera for a case, but that said it is a nice case. The buttons are easy to press, even with gloves on (for us cold water divers). The UW correction filter is kinda useless, but I guess its nice to have. Overall, this does what it says, and does it well. Very easy to use.
