Do you want to capture brilliant 16MP photos and Full HD 1080p video beneath the water's surface? The Ikelite Underwater Housing and Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-4 Camera Kit from B&H enables you to do just that. The durable enclosure quadruples the waterproof point-and-shoot camera's depth rating, enabling dives as far down as 200'. It's recommended that you grab an optional strobe or video light to ensure sufficient illumination and color accuracy on cloudy days, and when diving beyond 20-30' or so on clear, sunny days.

  • Ikelite Underwater Housing for Olympus Tough TG-3 or TG-4 (Updated Version)

    Capture photos and video as far as 200' beneath the surface with your Olympus Tough TG-3 or TG-4 digital camera in this updated version of the dedicated Ikelite Underwater Housing. The large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except for the INFO button. This version adds an ergonomic, side-mounted shutter lever and offers improved zoom control. A 1/4"-20 mount has also been added on the bottom for connection to a tray. Additionally, the body is now 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. Some of the controls are crafted from hard anodized aluminum for superior durability, as well.

    The housing is equipped with two ports for fiber-optic cables, which will allow for connecting optional, external strobes for increased illumination and color accuracy. The camera's built-in flash can't be used for illuminating subjects, but will trigger the strobes via the fiber-optic cables.

    An integrated flat glass lens port with a 3.0" diameter accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses to enhance your view. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore hues that get absorbed by the water.

    Waterproofing
    • Features a depth rating of 200'.
    • Simply close the side latch and see the O-ring form a solid black watertight seal.
    Controls and Handling
    • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, a knurled knob, and a dial, enable smooth operation.
    • Access provided to all camera functions except for INFO button.
    • Ergonomic, side-mounted shutter lever has been added.
    • Improves upon previous version of housing with better zoom control.
    • Attaching an optional single or dual-handle tray will afford improved handling and balance, while offering connection points for lighting arms.
    Construction Details
    • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.
    • Manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistant, white ABS/polycarbonate blend.
    • Reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above water's surface.
    • Controls made of hard anodized aluminum and acetyl resin for corrosion resistance.
    • Drop-in camera loading makes for quick and easy setup.
    • Standard 1/4"-20 mount added on bottom for connection to optional tray.
    Lens Port
    • Integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter.
    • Accepts optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro add-on lenses, for increased field of view or better clarity and detail in close-ups, 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 certain external wide-angle lenses, such as Ikelite W-30 and INON UWL-H100, but can be eliminated by using smaller aperture or zooming in slightly.
    • Recommended WD-3 Wide Angle Dome results in no vignetting.
    • Add optional, press-on color-correction filters with 3.0" diameters directly to lens port, in order to restore colors that get absorbed by water. Most wide-angle conversion lenses require 3.6" filters.
    • The #6441.41 filter is designed for blue water use, while the #6441.81 is for green water.
    External Strobe Connection
    • Equipped with two ports for the connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, INON, Olympus, and Nauticam fiber-optic cables, which enable external flash connection.
    • Strobes will be triggered by firing of camera's built-in flash.
    • Housing does not permit use of camera's built-in flash for illumination--but external flash is much better option. It has greater effective range and brightness, while also producing better color accuracy and virtually eliminating backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
    • Ikelite DS strobes may be connected using optional Fiber Optic Converter #4401.1 and Fiber Optic Cord #4501.

  • 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.

    For image monitoring and review, as well as menu navigation, an LCD screen is incorporated into the camera's design. Accessing the menu system reveals a host of different camera features and settings, including a built-in intervalometer, automated Time-Lapse movie creation, a close-focusing Microscope Mode, and the ability to utilize built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, and an electronic compass.

    TOUGH Design
    The TG-4 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
    • Waterproof to depths of 50' / 15 m
    • Freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14°F / -10°C
    • Shockproof to falls from 7' / 2.1 m high
    • Crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf / 100 kgf of pressure
    • Dustproof to protect the internal components of the camera
    16MP BSI CMOS Sensor
    A 16 megapixel 1/2.3" backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work together to enable iHS (Intelligent High Speed) Technology, which benefits both the overall image quality and performance throughout the TG-4. The BSI design of the image sensor realizes notable sensitivity, up to ISO 6400, along with reduced noise levels to enhance image quality, especially in regard to working in difficult lighting conditions. The processing capabilities also afford a 5 fps shooting rate at full resolution, as well as 15 fps and 60 fps shooting rates at 3 megapixels.
    4x Optical Zoom Lens
    Incorporated into the compact body design is fast 4x optical zoom f/2.0-4.9 lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-100mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Benefitting this versatile zoom range, sensor-shift type image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld imagery.
    Full HD Movie Recording
    Full HD 1920 x 1080p video recording is available for capturing your action-packed moments and sharing them with your friends. In addition to full HD 1080p, HD 720p recording is also available as well as 120 fps and 240 fps high-speed recording at reduced resolutions.
    Live Composite and RAW Capture
    Added to this model is RAW capture which provides more versatile files for editing on a computer. Also, Live Composite is a mode that will automatically put together numerous exposures of a single scene in order to produce a single properly exposed image without losing highlights or shadows.
    Underwater Modes with Underwater HDR
    Take advantage of the tough capabilities of this camera and enjoy fully-featured shooting underwater. A selection of different modes, including HDR, will compensate for the different characteristics of light and color when underwater.
    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.
    Other Camera Features
    • Interval shooting is supported for up to 99 frames with 1 second to 24 hour intervals, with a start timer from 1 second to 24 hours.
    • In-camera time-lapse movies can be created using the interval shooting mode to produce HD 720p/10 videos for up to 10 seconds in length.
