Capture images and video of water-based marvels at up to 200' beneath the surface with this Ikelite Underwater Housing and Sony DSC-W830 Digital Camera Kit from B&H. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a dial, provide access to all important camera functions.

Built for durability, the waterproof enclosure is made in the USA 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 3.9" diameter and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses, as well as color-correction filters. 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. Additionally, it includes both a flash diffuser and deflector.

The silver DSC-W830 Digital Camera from Sony is a pocket-sized point-and-shoot featuring a 20.1MP, 1/2.3", Super HAD CCD image sensor and BIONZ processor for high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720 video recording at 30 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The 8x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. A 2.7", 230k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor provides sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos--even in bright sunlight. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization counteracts camera shake for clear, blur-free shots. Special features include Sweep Panorama shooting up to 360°, allowing you to capture entire landscapes in one shot, and in-camera editing tools such as Beauty Effects and a D-Range Optimizer that instantly corrects image data for optimal exposure and tone reproduction.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830

    Capture images and video beneath the surface with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 Digital Camera inside this Underwater Housing from Ikelite. This waterproof enclosure has a depth rating of 200'. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a dial, provide access to all important 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 3.9" 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 push-buttons and a dial, provide access to all important camera functions. The housing is configured with a 12-24 thread with 3.0" spacing for mounting 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 3.9" 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. 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 WD-4 Wide Angle Dome provides 0.75x magnification and allows for the use of about 3/4 of the camera lens's zoom range. The optional 3.9" Macro Port Adapter allows for the attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. You can also add optional color-correction filters #6441.46 for blue water and 6441.86 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. As an alternative, two ports are provided for the connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. The housing 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 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.

  • Sony DSC-W830 Digital Camera (Silver)

    The silver DSC-W830 Digital Camera from Sony is a pocket-sized point-and-shoot featuring a 20.1MP, 1/2.3", Super HAD CCD image sensor and BIONZ processor for high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720 video recording at 30 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The 8x optical zoom, 4.5-36mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-200mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and an aperture range of f/3.3-6.3.

    The camera is equipped with a 2.7", 230k-dot Clear Photo LCD monitor providing sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization counteracts camera shake for clear, blur-free shots. Additionally, benefit from Sweep Panorama shooting up to 360°, allowing you to capture an entire landscape in a single shot.

    Files are recorded to MS Duo or SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The DSC-W830 is configured with a USB 2.0 port and composite HD and SD outputs. It's powered by the 3.6V, 630mAh NP-BN lithium-ion battery.

    20.1MP Super HAD CCD Sensor
    The 20.1MP, 1/2.3", Super HAD CCD image sensor with RGB primary color mosaic filters helps you capture sharp pictures with superb contrast, clarity and detail. It works with the BIONZ processor to produce high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720 video recording at 30 fps, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 3200. The high 20.1MP resolution is great for cropping and creating photo-quality prints up to A3+ (13x19") size.
    Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
    Effective focal length of 4.5-36mm covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Shooting still images at a 4:3 aspect ratio, the 35mm-equivalent focal length range is 25-200mm. For movies at 4:3, it's 34-272mm with SteadyShot image stabilization set to Standard mode, and 34-381 with SteadyShot set to Active mode. The equivalent focal length is 28-224mm for 16:9 stills, and 16:9 movies with SteadyShot Standard, or 28-314mm for movies with SteadyShot Active. At the wide end, the aperture is f/3.3, and it can be stopped down to f/6.3.
    2.7" LCD Monitor
    The 2.7", 230k-pixel Clear Photo LCD monitor provides sharp, natural color that makes it easy to compose shots, read menus, and view photos, even in bright sunlight. It also features a grid display.
    Focus Control
    Multi-point, center-weighted, spot, tracking and face tracking autofocus / AF modes are available. Face Detection can recognize up to 8 faces and adjust focus, exposure and white balance. It includes automatic, child and adult priority settings. Additionally, benefit from an automatic AF illuminator that can be turned on or off.
    Sweep Panorama
    Reach beyond the traditional wide-angle lens, and capture more expansive, breathtaking shots with Sweep Panorama mode. Take advantage of up to 360° coverage. Simply press the shutter button and sweep the camera in the desired direction, and the camera continuously shoots at a high speed, then seamlessly stitches the images together with automatic position adjustment to create one stunning panoramic image.
    Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization
    O.S.S. image stabilization counteracts the effects of camera shake for clear, blur-free shots. The 2-way Active Mode gives you the freedom to shoot movies even while walking or running, and corrects for both vertical and horizontal motion.
    Video Recording
    Capture MP4 movies in HD 720p resolution at 30 fps. Benefit from full use of optical zoom while recording. Files are small enough to transfer easily to compatible PCs or Mac computers for saving and uploading to photo and video-sharing websites, such as Facebook, Photobucket and YouTube.
    Additional Shooting Modes and Advanced Features
    Benefit from shooting tips, and count on Intelligent Auto to make the tough decisions for you, choosing the optimal settings for a given scene by recognizing attributes like lighting conditions and faces. This results in clear images, faces with natural skin tones, and reduced blur. Blink detection helps you ensure that you capture everyone in the shot with eyes open, and Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can now be used together with Smile Shutter mode when the Intelligent Auto mode is on. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting. Additionally, there is a self-timer option with 10 sec, 2 sec, portrait 1 and portrait 2 settings.
    Flash
    The Advanced Flash feature allows you to shoot bright, beautifully lit photos by extending the range of the built-in flash.
    In-Camera Editing
    Enhance your images with built-in effects that adjust skin tone and texture, or even whiten teeth. The D-Range Optimizer function instantaneously analyzes and automatically corrects the captured image data for optimal exposure and tone reproduction, removing portions that are darker than they would appear to the human eye. Standard, plus and off are the available D-range settings. Trimming and Unsharp Masking are also available in the edit menu. Picture Effect adds a new level of expression to photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. Beauty Effects allow you to edit skin tones and skin smoothness or remove shine. You can also widen eyes and whiten teeth. Beauty Effects can be combined to further enhance the image.
    Erase/Protect
    Erase and protect options offered include single, select, date and folder.
    Power
    Runs on the 3.6V NP-BN lithium-ion battery, which has a typical capacity of 630mAh and power rating of 2.3Wh, with minimum values of 600mAh and 2.2Wh. In operation, the camera consumes about 1.2W. It also has a Power Save Mode with Standard, Max and off options. The included AC-UB10 AC adapter runs on 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz, 70mAh.
