A wide angle lens is absolutely essential for shooting the big stuff like wrecks and whale sharks.
Fit more of your subject into the frame for a photo with the same impact as the real thing!
The two photos below were taken at exactly the same distance. The photo on the left was taken
with the camera in its widest angle setting. The photo on the right was taken with wide angle lens attached. The difference is clear!
It seems counterintuitive, but a wide angle lens can really make your macro shots pop. In
many situations, the addition of an external wide angle lens can both improve the sharpness of
your macro photo and expand the backdrop for more dramatic composition.
All of the following images were taken using US$100-200 point-and-shoot camera in Ikelite housings with
external wide angle lens installed.
The biggest obstacle to good underwater photography is, oddly, the water. Water absorbs light and
steals the color and clarity from your photo. Use a wide angle lens to get closer to your subject and
get some of that water out of your underwater photos.
The Ikelite W-20 is a completely waterproof unit and
can be removed and replaced while underwater for maximum versatility. Available with either 46mm
or 67mm threads for easy attachment to almost any digital still or video housing. To check
compatibility with Ikelite housings, please refer to the housing instruction manual or
