Capture images and video beneath the surface with your Olympus Tough TG-3 or TG-4 digital camera in this Ikelite Underwater Housing, which has a depth rating of 200'. The waterproof enclosure features large, ergonomic mechanical controls that provide access to all camera functions. Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash wireless slave strobe, which replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for the connection of fiber-optic cables.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, made 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. The housing includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe.

Waterproofing
  • Features a depth rating of 200'.
  • Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid black watertight seal.
  • Controls and Handling
  • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, a knurled knob, and a dial, provide access to all camera functions.
  • Adding an optional single or dual-handle tray with quick-release grips will afford improved handling and balance beneath the surface.
  • Construction Details
  • Designed, made 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.
  • Drop-in camera loading makes for quick and easy setup.
  • Lens Port
  • Integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter.
  • 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 will enable you to get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion.
  • Moderate vignetting will be present when using an external wide-angle lens, but can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.
  • Recommended W30 Wide-Angle Lens offers a magnification of 0.59x.
  • Add optional color-correction filters with 3.0" diameters, in order to restore colors that get absorbed by water. The #6441.41 filter is designed for blue water use, while the #6441.81 is for green water.
  • Flash Use
  • 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.
  • Housing is also equipped with two ports for the connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables.
  • 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 very short distance from subject, the use of a more powerful external strobe is highly recommended. Will provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, and will virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
  • Additional Recommended Optional Accessories
  • Vega LED Video + Photo Light is useful as a video, macro photography, focusing or backup dive light. Outputs a maximum of 2200 lumens at a beam angle of 65° and a color temperature of 5700K. Output can be reduced to 1100 lumens (1/2) or 550 lumens (1/4).
  • Gamma Waterproof Flashlight outputs 220 lumens in concentrated 10° beam with daylight-balanced 6500K color temperature, and offers run time of over 10 hr.
