Overview
  • 1Description

This Ikelite Underwater Housing with Sigma DP1 Merrill Compact Digital Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles Ikelite's #6101.02 Housing with the compatible Sigma DP1 Merrill digital point-and-shoot camera. Benefit from the ability to capture high-resolution still photos and 320 x 240 QVGA video at a maximum depth of 200'.

The housing's large, ergonomic mechanical controls enable access to all camera functions. Built for durability, the enclosure is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from acrylic and corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which are both clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses and color-correction filters. The housing features an electrical hot shoe and a waterproof Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead sync connector for direct attachment of optional, external Ikelite or non-Ikelite DS series strobes via sync cords, which are available separately. Manual exposure settings must be used because TTL flash exposure is not supported. Additionally, the housing includes a tray with a grip for improved handling and lighting arm attachment.

The Sigma DP1 Merrill Compact Digital Camera features a 46MP Foveon X3 Direct Image CMOS sensor and True II image processor for high-resolution JPEG, RAW and JPEG+RAW still photos and 320 x 240 QVGA video recording at 30 fps. It employs three layers of vertically stacked receptors to reproduce colors with striking accuracy and create images with notable sharpness. The wide-angle 28mm (35mm equivalent) FLD lens has a fairly fast f/2.8 aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth of field, and a manual focus ring gives you a high degree of control over your compositions. The camera is also equipped with a 3.0", 920k-dot LCD monitor. The hot shoe gives you access to all types of accessories, including optional external flash units.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sigma DP1, DP2, or DP3 Merrill Camera

    This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof enclosure enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Sigma DP1, DP2, or DP3 Merrill Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls enable access to all camera functions.

    Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from acrylic and corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which are clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.

    The housing features an electrical hot shoe and a waterproof Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead sync connector for direct attachment of optional, external Ikelite or non-Ikelite DS series strobes via sync cords, which are available separately. Manual exposure settings must be used because TTL flash exposure is not supported with any strobes. Additionally, the housing includes a tray with a grip for improved balance and handling and an attachment point for lighting.

    Waterproofing
    Features a depth rating of 200'. Simply close the two stainless steel locking lid snaps and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal.
    Controls and Handling
    Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, push-buttons, and a lever, enable access to all camera functions. An included tray with soft-grip handle enables comfortable use and good balance beneath the surface, and also provides a quick-release attachment system for lighting.
    Construction Details
    Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from acrylic and corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which are clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
    Lens Port
    The integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. Both types of lenses let you get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion and improve color, exposure and clarity. The recommended WD-4 Wide Angle Dome provides 0.75x magnification. The 3.9" Macro Port Adapter enables the attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. You can also add optional color-correction filters #6441.46 for tropical blue water and #6441.86 for green water to restore colors that get absorbed below the surface.
    Strobe Connection and Operation
    Equipped with an electrical hot shoe and a waterproof Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead sync connector for direct attachment of optional, external Ikelite or non-Ikelite DS series strobes via sync cords, which are available separately. Manual exposure settings must be used because housing does not support TTL flash with any strobes. The Ikelite DS50, DS51, DS125, DS160, DS161, and DS200 strobes are compatible, as are third-party strobes.
    More Recommended Optional Accessories
    The DS51 Strobe Kit with Ball Arm gives you a strobe, a diffuser, an aluminum 1" ball arm, and a sync cord. The DS161 Strobe + Video Kit bundles the same items with a different strobe. Also available, the Vega Video + Photo Light offers a 2200-lumen output, a 65° beam angle, and a daylight-balanced 5700K color temperature. Run time is 45-180 min. The Quick Release Kit for GoPro includes everything you need to attach your GoPro camera/housing to an Ikelite Quick Release Handle.

  • Sigma DP1 Merrill Compact Digital Camera

    For truly rich and detailed images, the DP1 Merrill Compact Digital Camera from Sigma employs three layers of vertically stacked receptors to take advantage of silicon's unique ability to absorb light at different depths. This allows the DP1 to more accurately reproduce colors, and capture sharper resolution images, than any camera the same size. Unlike the DP2 Merrill Compact Digital Camera, the DP1 uses a wider 19mm focal length lens, with the 35mm equivalent of a 28mm lens.

    Its large 3.0" display allows you to better view these high quality images as you shoot them, and its ability to shoot RAW, JPEG, or both simultaneously gives you added flexibility when choosing which files to use in post-processing. You can efficiently shoot JPEG to share immediately, or use RAW to capture everything in a lossless, uncompressed file.

    These three layers within the sensor combine to create a 46-megapixel image, at a resolution of 4800 x 3200 pixels. This makes it a great camera for anyone from a photography professional needing a small, yet high-quality camera, to hobbyists who want the same quality of large-sensor DSLRs without the cumbersome weight.

    46Mp Foveon X3 Direct Image CMOS Sensor
    The Foveon X3 Direct Image Sensor uses an innovative pixel structure that uniquely captures all red, green, and blue (RGB) color information in each pixel location, with three layers, rather than the typical single layer of alternating colors. This provides accurately colored and incredibly detailed imagery, with greater three-dimensional depth--incorporating 46 effective megapixels (3 layers: 4,800 x 3,200) and 44 recording megapixels (3 layers: 4,704 x 3,136)
    28mm f/2.8 Equivalent FLD Lens
    The DP1 Merrill offers a wider 19mm f/2.8 lens, which is the equivalent to a 28mm lens on a 35mm camera. The camera is compact, lightweight, and includes "F" Low Dispersion (FLD) glass to correct aberrations and Super Multi Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting
    True II Image Processor
    The dual TRUE II (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate Engine) image processing engine dedicated to Foveon X3 direct image sensors improves the processing speed and overall quality of your final image. By incorporating two TRUE II processors, the DP1's unique image-processing algorithm provides high resolution power and reproduces high definition images with rich tones and smooth gradients
    3.0" Rear LCD Screen
    Like a much larger DSLR, you'll get the benefit of a 3.0" TFT LCD to quickly change menu options, or review photos after they're taken
    QVGA Video (320x240) @ 30FPS
    Record QVGA quality video through the Movie mode at 320 x 240 resolution and 30 fps
    Records JPEG & RAW Files
    Capture the fantastic clarity and quality of RAW data with its lossless compression, the universal compatibility of JPEG, or the convenience of JPEG + RAW--giving you the most creative freedom and flexibility possible out of every shot
    Built-In Accessory Hot Shoe
    The accessory hot shoe built right into the DP1 provides access to all types of accessories that are compatible with the camera, like an external flash for better light quality
    Manual Focus Ring
    Manual Focus is available for use when autofocus or focus lock is not desired. It is possible to use the focus ring for focusing just like an SLR camera, but very unlike a compact digital camera. It is also possible to magnify the display to ensure even more precise focusing--when millimeters matter
    9x Diaphragm Blades
    Nine diaphragm blades provide excellent blurring effects to out-of-focus areas (bokeh) in photographs for a very pleasing aesthetic and style
    Display Languages
    Languages supported on the LCD display include: English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese (Simplified), Korean, Russian, Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish
