This Ikelite 5660.08 Compact Underwater Video Housing is a mechanically controlled housing designed for the Kodak Zi8 compact video camcorder. The housing is incredibly compact and simple to use. Choose your recording quality and start shooting video. Power on/off and record start/stop controls are accessible through the housing. The camera's zoom feature is not functional through the housing, the Zi8 has digital zoom only. Better image quality is achieved by cropping the video during post production. The easy-open latch and drop-in camera loading make setting up the housing a breeze. The housing is rated to 200' (60m).

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. 67mm threaded lenses can be used with the optional port adapter #9306.78. The lenses can be attached and removed when underwater for maximum versatility.
