- 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 #6441.46 for tropical blue water and #6441.86
for use in green water settings. For optimum results use in combination with manual white balance
(see camera user guide for information on setting custom white balance).
- 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.
Use the AutoFlash AF35 for easy automatic exposure. Or add an optional DS Substrobe
with EV Manual Controller for more power and wider angle of coverage.
For the best results in all conditions.

- Video Lighting
Illuminate the truest colors day or night with a high-powered video light. For occassional
clips, the Pro-V8 is perfect for close-up work and focus assistance.
For the serious shooter we recommend the super-powerful PRO-2800 for maximum output and versatility.
Tray with release handle(s)
required for attachment, not included.

The WD-4 Wide Angle Conversion Dome corrects for refractive magnification to provide the camera's full angle of coverage underwater.
The conversion dome may be removed and replaced underwater and requires no
modification to the housing's standard port.

Optional adapter #9306.82 (MSRP $50) slides over the front of the lens port and allows for the
attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. The adapter may be removed and
replaced underwater and requires no modification to the housing's standard lens port.
