You can capture brilliant photos and Full HD 1080p video of coral, parrot fish, and other sea life at depths as great as 200', thanks to Ikelite's Underwater Housing for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 digital camera. The Sony's built-in flash can light your subject from within the housing, but more importantly, it can also wirelessly trigger optional external strobes, which are highly recommended for the greater illumination and color correction they provide.

The housing provides access to all camera functions via mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled dials, and a lever. Built for durability, it is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic, which are clear to enable you to monitor the camera and O-ring seal.

Attach optional wide-angle and macro lenses with 67mm threads to the housing's flat, built-in glass lens port. Wide-angles, such as the Ikelite W-30, will increase your coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame; macros will enable extreme close-up shots with great clarity and detail. Both types of lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, thus improving image quality. Additionally, to restore hues that get absorbed underwater, you can use optional, external color-correction filters for blue or green water.

The housing is equipped with a 12-24 thread with 3" spacing for the mounting of an optional aluminum tray with 1 or 2 grips, which will improve balance and handling while giving you attachment points for lighting.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Made by hand in USA from durable polycarbonate and acrylic for resistance to corrosion by seawater
  • Clear to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain view of camera's controls
  • Close the 2 stainless steel locking latches to see the O-ring form a solid, black, watertight seal
  • Buoyancy is nearly neutral in freshwater
Controls and Handling
  • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and a lever, enable access to all camera functions
  • 12-24 threads with 3" spacing enable the mounting of an optional aluminum tray with one or two grips, which will improve balance and handling while providing attachment points for lighting arms
Lens Port
  • Built-in lens port with a flat glass front element and a 3.0" diameter
  • Accepts optional, external, wide-angle "wet" lenses with 67mm threads, such as the Ikelite WD-3 Dome and W-30 Wide-Angle Lens, as well as the INON UWL-H100
  • Wide lenses increase angle of coverage, permitting you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame
  • WD-3 Dome will result in no vignetting
  • Other wide-angle options offer greater field of view, but with a little vignetting and edge distortion. These effects can be eliminated by zooming in, using a smaller aperture, or cropping in post-production
  • Port also accepts optional, screw-on, 67mm macro "wet" lenses from INON, Epoque, and other brands, which let you capture extreme close-ups with great clarity and detail
  • Getting closer to your subject minimizes distortion caused by the water, resulting in improved image quality
  • Port accepts optional 3.0" color-correction filters, which replace natural tones that would otherwise be lost due to absorption once you go beyond a certain depth underwater. Red and orange are generally lost once you descend farther than 15-20'
  • Filter #6441.41 is available for blue water, while #6441.81 is available for green water. Use these filters without a strobe
  • Larger filters with 3.6" diameters can be used on many external wide or macro lenses
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Camera's built-in flash can illuminate your subject, but is only effective at distances of 1-3' away from your subject underwater
  • Flash can also trigger an optional external strobe as a wireless slave unit
  • An external strobe is highly recommended, as it has greater reach, coverage, and color-correcting capabilities than the camera's built-in flash, and will also reduce or eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows
  • Optional AF35 is an automatic optical slave strobe featuring exposure adjustment capabilities
  • Included flash diffuser softens the light of the camera's built-in flash, while a supplied flash deflector redirects it towards an external strobe
