Camera’s Built-in Flash.
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera’s built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.

External Color Filters.
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. Available as #6441.32 for tropical blue water and #6441.72 for use in green water settings.

External Underwater Strobes.

Ikelite strobes are much more powerful, recycle more quickly, and eliminate more backscatter than the camera’s built-in flash. Don’t settle for flat, blue-green images. The AutoFlash AF35 (pictured at right) is an easy and affordable way to add a strobe to your system. The AF35 is effective up to approximately 5 feet (1.5m) from the subject and restores the colors that are otherwise lost. For the best results in all conditions.

Pro-V8 LED Video Lite.
For additional lighting when using the camera’s movie mode and to aid in focus. For use with or without a color filter.

External Accessory Lenses.

An external wide angle conversion lens increases angle of coverage so you can get much closer to your subject while still fitting everything in the frame. By reducing the amount of water between the subject and your camera lens, the resulting image will be more crisp and colorful. Several options are available for attaching an external wide angle or macro lens:

· Attach 46mm threaded #6420.46 Ikelite W-20 and other lenses directly to the front of the housing port.

· Attach 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20, Inon Type II and Epoque lenses using the #9306.81 port adapter.

· Attach Bayonet style Inon UWL-100 28AD, UWL-105AD and UFL-165AD lenses using the #9306.79 port adapter.

Very minimal vignetting (shading in the corners) may be present in the widest setting when using an external accessory lens. This can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.
