Underwater Housing for Sony HDR-XR260

MSRP $900
Product Number 6039.24

Molded of clear polycarbonate to provide seamless construction and corrosion proof performance. This "Clearly Superior" design provides full view of the camcorder, control functions, and assurance the system is safe. The camera's large viewing screen can be seen easily using the External Mirror featured on the side of the housing. Fail-safe mechanical controls are provided for important camera functions. Simple one touch white balance adds a professional quality to your video as easily as the push of a button.

The tray and handles remove with just two nuts for packing. Includes two 3/8-16 threaded stud mounts with wing-nuts for attachment of mounting arms. Optional Stability Base is available for improved handling above water.

Custom white balance (also known as Manual white balance) is one of the best tools for getting natural colors at relatively shallow depths. We put this powerful feature right at your fingertips. Just point the camera at a white or near-white surface and press a single pushbutton on the back of the housing. Our proprietary circuitry does the rest, no scrolling through menus required.

Custom white balance requires a reasonable amount of available light and is usable up to approximately 50 ft (15 m). When diving deeper and/or shooting an external light, simply press the provided Auto White Balance pushbutton to return to the camera's automatic mode.

The included UR/Pro Color Filter provides color correction in tropical blue water with available sunlight up to 80 feet (24 meters). A Green Water Filter (Product Number 6441.81) is also available to achieve more natural tones in green water settings. Color correcting filters may be used with either automatic or manual white balance.

Adequate light is key to crisp, colorful high-definition underwater video. Powerful lights are usable for both day and night diving.

The housing port is threaded allowing the use of 67mm threaded macro lenses.

Due to the nature of the camera's native lens, 67mm threaded wide angle options are not compatible with this installation.

The optional Flat Port for Raynox HDS-680 (Product Number 9306.1) replaces the housing's standard flat lens port to allow the attachment of Raynox DCR-730, DCR-731, or HDS-680 wide angle lenses. These lenses attach to the front of the camera and are not removable underwater.

Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong, clear enclosure. We believe there's no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. Our signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you're diving. Polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.

Like every Ikelite product, our housings are designed, built, and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. The average assembly technician is a certified scuba diver and has over 16 years of experience building Ikelite products. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the most accessible and responsive customer service staff in the dive industry.
