The Ikelite Underwater Housing Kit with a red Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-4 Digital Camera from B&H provides you with both a waterproof housing from Ikelite and the Olympus Stylus TOUGH to go inside it. The housing enables you to capture photos and video underwater at a maximum depth of 200' (60 m).

Ikelite's 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. 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.

The TG-4 is water, crush, shock, freeze, and dustproof. It is built to withstand underwater dives up to 50' deep, falls from up to 7' high, temperatures as low as 14°F, and pressure up to 220 lb. While serving to protect on an array of adventures, these features are also well-suited to use in everyday circumstances. Additionally, it adds RAW shooting to the series for enhanced post-processing capabilities. A 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work to produce high-resolution imagery with notable low-light sensitivity and quality. The camera features a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and 5 fps shooting rate at full resolution. The sensor and processor also support recording full HD 1080p movies allowing you to remember your water-filled vacation for days and years after you return home.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Olympus Tough TG-3 or TG-4

  • 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.

  • Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-4 Digital Camera (Red)

    Preserve memories from your most adventurous trips with the water, crush, shock, freeze, and dustproof red Stylus TOUGH TG-4 Digital Camera from Olympus. In addition to being fully sealed from dust, the TG-4 is built to withstand underwater dives up to 50' deep, falls from up to 7' high, temperatures as low as 14°F, and pressure up to 220 lbf. While serving to protect on an array of adventures, these features are also well-suited to use in everyday circumstances. Additionally, it adds RAW shooting to the series for enhanced post-processing capabilities.

    In regard to imaging, a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work to produce high-resolution imagery with notable low-light sensitivity and quality. The combination of these two technologies form Olympus' iHS technology, which serves to realize fast performance throughout the camera system, including a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and 5 fps shooting rate at full resolution. The sensor and processor also support recording full HD 1080p movies.

    Benefiting the imaging capabilities of the TG-4 is a fast 4x optical zoom f/2.0-4.9 lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-100mm. Complementing this lens' reach, as well as aiding the camera's use in low-light conditions, is sensor-shift image stabilization, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake.

    Built-In Wi-Fi, GPS, and eCompass
    Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless sharing of photos and movies from the camera to a linked mobile device for instant sharing online. Utilizing the Olympus Image Share app, you can also remotely control the camera from a smartphone or tablet, including the ability to zoom in or out, adjust exposure and focus, and release the shutter. Additionally, utilizing the location data from a mobile device, you can geotag your imagery for plotting to an interactive map using the included Olympus Viewer 3 software.

    Complementing the Wi-Fi connectivity, an integrated GPS module can quickly locate your position and also enables on-board geotagging and landmark-tagging capabilities. Furthermore, an electronic compass is also available, and can display a variety of information including latitude and longitude; atmospheric and water pressure; altitude and water depth; and the date and time.
    Microscope Mode
    Contrasting the wide field shooting abilities of the TG-4, dedicated Microscope shooting modes can be used to home in on minute details. Four different modes are available: Microscope, for close-up shooting as near as 1cm away; Microscope Control, which allows you to dial in different display magnifications, up to 44.5x, using microscope-like controls for attaining critical focus; Focus Bracketing, where a series of individual images are recorded at different focus positions; and Focus Stacking, where, again, a series of individually-focused images are recorded and automatically composited into a single frame realizing an extended depth of field than possible with a single exposure.
