Capture clear, detailed images of coral, sharks, and more at depths as great as 200', thanks to this updated version of Ikelite's Underwater Housing for your Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark III, IV, or V Camera. Two ports for optional Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables enable the connection of external strobes. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, a newly added shutter lever, a dial, and push-buttons, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash and viewfinder switches. In addition to the improved shutter lever, the housing offers better zoom control than the previous model.
Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from a white ABS/polycarbonate blend, which is still corrosion-resistant but also reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface. The back plate 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, and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an enhanced view. Optional color-correction filters can also be added to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.
Can be safely used at a maximum depth of 200'
Simply close the two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches, and see the
O-ring form a solid watertight seal
Designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA
Made of a white ABS/polycarbonate blend, which is still corrosion-resistant but also reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface
Back plate is made of clear polycarbonate to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain full view of camera
Slide-in, front-loading design for quick and easy setup
A 1/2-20 size accessory port has been added for installation of optional vacuum valve to allow you to confirm watertight integrity before diving
Controls, Handling, and Operation
Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, dials, push-buttons, and an improved shutter lever on the side, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash switch and viewfinder switch
Spring-loaded rear control dial
Bright red push-button for video recording
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
Camera's built-in Wi-Fi allows you to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing
Wi-Fi can only be used above water in close proximity to the connected device
Older RX100 Mark I and Mark II cameras are not usable in this housing due to differences in lens and control placement
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 in slightly, using a smaller aperture, or cropping in the editing stage
Ikelite WD-3 Wide Angle Dome provides medium angle of coverage with no vignetting
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
Strobe Connection and Operation
Housing is equipped with two ports for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, INON, Nauticam, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables
Compatible with the following cables: Ikelite 4501 Fiber Optic Coiled Cord, INON L-type Optical D Cable, Sea & Sea 50107 L-type Fiber Optic Cable, Olympus PTCB-E02 UW Fiber Optic Cable, Nauticam-to-INON 26211 Optical Fiber Cable, and Nauticam-to-Sea & Sea 26212 Optical Fiber Cable
Camera's built-in flash cannot illuminate subject from within housing but is used to trigger external strobes, which provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, while virtually eliminating backscatter, glare, and hard shadows
Ikelite DS strobes may be connected using the optional Fiber Optic Converter # 4401.1 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501
