Capture clear, detailed images of coral reefs, whale sharks, and moray eels at depths up to 200' with this Ikelite Underwater Housing for your Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV Digital Camera. It improves on the RX100 III housing with a front-loading design, a better rear control dial, and a bright red push-button for video. Ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, a lever, dials, and push-buttons, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash switch and the viewfinder switch. The housing will also accept the Mark III camera, allowing access to all controls except for the rear control dial.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, 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. 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.

Construction Details
  • Can be safely used at a maximum depth of 200'
  • Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal
  • Designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA
  • 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
Controls, Handling, and Operation
  • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, a lever, dials, and push-buttons, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash switch and the viewfinder switch
  • Improves on RX100 III housing with slide-in, front-loading camera mounting tray for easier setup
  • Other improvements over previous housing include a redesigned, spring-loaded rear control dial and a bright red push-button for video recording
  • The camera's versatile front control ring is gear-driven to make it easy to reach
  • A sensitive lever makes it easy to half-press the shutter for focusing and metering
  • All rear controls are clearly marked with laser engravings
  • The housing is configured with a 1/4"-20 thread with 3.0" 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
  • Use the camera's built-in Wi-Fi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing
  • Wi-Fi is only usable above water in close proximity to the connected device
  • Housing will also accept Mark III camera, with all controls operable except rear control dial. Older RX100 Mark I and Mark II cameras are not usable in this housing due to differences in lens and control placement
Lens Port
  • 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 Ikelite W30 and INON UWL-H100 wide-angle lenses provide notable edge sharpness with minimal vignetting, which can be eliminated altogether by zooming slightly
  • You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by the water
  • Filter #6441.41 for blue water and 6441.81 for green water are available
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 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
