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.
 

Construction Details

  • 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

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 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

How is this new version different than the prior version which is light gray?
Asked by: Jennifer
Ikelite states their new white ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and O-ring seal. (The older (now discontinued) Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Digital Camera, B&H # IK6116.12, the Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 IV Digital Camera, B&H # IK6116.14, and the Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Digital Camera, MFR # 6116.16, were the previous versions of the new 6116.15 housing. The previous versions were clear, not gray, in color. I did not find a gray Ikelite housing designed for use with the RX100 III, IV, and V cameras).

question

Recently purchased a ikelite housing for rx100 v and recommend accessory AF35 strobe, upon receiving and open the manual which clearly states clearly that the two items are not compatible. Any solution toe retrofit?
Asked by: Zhen Q.
Unfortunately not. The AF35's sensor cannot detect the camera's flash. We recommend paring the DS51 strobe (4044.1) with the arm (4080.05), Fiber Optic Converter (4401.1), and Fiber Optic Cord (4501). <a href= http://www.ikelite.com/lighting/4044.1-ds51-strobe.html target= _blank >http://www.ikelite.com/lighting/4044.1-ds51-strobe.html</a><a href= http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4080.01-ball-arm-mark-ii.html target= _blank >http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4080.01-ball-arm-mark-ii.html</a><a href= http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4401.1-fiber-optic-converter.html target= _blank >http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4401.1-fiber-optic-converter.html</a><a href= http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4501-fiber-optic-cord.html target= _blank >http://www.ikelite.com/accessories/4501-fiber-optic-cord.html</a>
