- 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 #6441.41 for tropical blue water and #6441.81
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.

- 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. Attach 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20, Inon Type II and Epoque
wide angle or macro lenses
directly to the front of the housing port. Bayonet mount lenses are not compatible with this

Ikelite W-20 Wide Angle Conversion Lens.
Vignetting will be present with a wide angle lens attached. The camera must be zoomed several
stops to eliminate vignetting. Addition of an Ikelite W-20 or comparable wide angle lens will
gain approximately 15-20% angle of view after zooming.
