This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof enclosure enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX S3600 Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. Ergonomic mechanical controls, including a knurled knob and push-buttons, provide access to virtually all camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is 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 3.0" diameter. It 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.

Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. It includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe.

Waterproofing
Can be safely used at a maximum depth of 200'. Drop-in loading enables quick and easy camera installation and setup. Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal.
Controls and Handling
Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including a knurled knob and push-buttons, provide access to virtually all camera functions. The housing is configured with a 12-24 thread with 3.0"/76 mm spacing for the mounting of an optional tray with single or dual handles, which will provide improved balance and handling, as well as quick-release attachment points for lighting arms.
Construction Details
Designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. Manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
Lens Port
The built-in, flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter. It accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses with 67mm diameter threads for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. Both types of lenses will enable you to get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion. The recommended W30 Wide Angle Lens provides 0.59x magnification and can be removed and replaced while underwater. You can also add optional color-correction filters #6441.41 for blue water and #6441.81 for green water to restore colors that get absorbed below the surface.
Flash Use
You can add an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for optional Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. It includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe. Since a built-in flash is generally only effective within a very short distance from your subject, the use of a more powerful external strobe is highly recommended. It will provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, and will virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
Additional Recommended Optional Accessories
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. Also available, the Gamma Waterproof Flashlight outputs 220 lumens in a concentrated 10° beam with a daylight-balanced color temperature of 6500K. Run time is over 10 hr. The Quick Release Kit for GoPro includes everything you need to attach your GoPro camera/housing to an Ikelite Quick Release Handle.
