Capture vibrant images and video of sting rays, parrot fish, and coral at 200' beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX S6300 camera in this Ikelite Underwater Housing.
External lighting is more powerful than your camera's built-in flash, but your flash can be used to trigger an optional, external AF35 AutoFlash strobe as a wireless slave, replicating TTL exposure. As an alternative, two fiber-optic ports are provided for connecting optional cables. The housing also includes a diffuser to soften your built-in flash and a deflector to redirect the light towards an external strobe. This added lighting will provide greater color accuracy and vibrancy, and it can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows. Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. A corrosion-resistant, clear polycarbonate body offers a full view of the camera, allowing you to monitor the O-ring seal to ensure correct waterproof installation. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions. The camera mounting plate features a 12-24 thread tray with 3" spacing.
The housing's built-in, flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter. Since light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water, optional color-correction filters can be added to enhance colors below the surface. The port also accepts optional external lenses, to allow an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. For close-ups, use Ikelite's optional external macro adapter 9306.82 with optional 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. Wide-angle coverage requires Ikelite's optional WD-4 wide-angle conversion dome 6430.4. Approximately three-fourths of the camera's zoom range can be used with the dome in place, however slight vignetting may occur at camera's widest-angle setting. This effect can be eliminated by zooming in slightly or cropping the image in post processing. Other wide-angle conversion or accessory lenses cannot be used with this housing.

Drop-in loading enables quick and easy camera installation and setup
Simply close side latch and see o-ring form a solid watertight seal

Built-in, flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter
Accepts optional external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses, to allow 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 subjects, cutting down on amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion
You can also add optional color-correction filters for blue and green water to restore colors that get absorbed below the surface
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 firing the camera's built-in flash, replicating TTL exposure
As an alternative, two ports are provided for connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables
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 built-in flash is generally only effective within very short distance from subject, use of a more powerful external strobe is highly recommended
External strobe will provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows
