Olympus FCON-T02 Lens and Dome Port

This housing comes pre-installed with the Dome Port for the Olympus FCON-T02 Fisheye Lens # 64361. The beauty of this lens is that it allows super sharp zoom through for great shots from full 180º fisheye to 30mm equivalent macro close-up.

The camera can also be installed without the lens attached to shoot super macro using the camera's famous microscope mode.

Olympus Tough TG-6 Camera

The TG-6 has a bright 25-100mm mid-range zoom lens and a high-speed back-lit CMOS image sensor for excellent performance in low-light settings. The microscope mode has been improved since the previous TG-5 model and is capable of macro close-up images that are as good as if not better than expensive full-frame DSLR cameras.

The TG-6 supports ultra HD 4K video and RAW image capture, which is a powerful tool for post-dive color corrections using either Adobe Lightroom or the included software. The TG-6 is waterproofed to 50' (15.2m) even without a housing, which makes set-up a little less stress-inducing.

This is the perfect set-up for shooting over-unders (half-in, half-out of the water) with the Olympus Tough TG-6.

DS51 Strobes with RC1 TTL Receivers

When the camera doesn't know an underwater strobe is being triggered, your exposure results with a strobe in TTL mode can be wildly erratic. The alternative of shooting manual can provide great results but is cumbersome and nearly impossible with fast moving subjects.

The RC1 TTL Receiver allows the strobe to fire via a fiber optic connection and it communicates directly with the camera set to its RC (or remote control) flash mode. This provides uniquely accurate strobe exposure without constantly manually adjusting your strobe as your distance to the subject changes.

The DS51 strobe is super compact and lightweight to balance perfectly with the TG-6 system. Each strobe requires 4 AA batteries (not included). We recommend using a high quality rechargeable NiMH cell like Eneloop for the best results.

ULTRAcompact Underwater Housing

This housing is designed for a deeper depth rating and more robust handling than the comparable Olympus brand model. Controls are provided for all important camera functions. A side-mounted trigger-type shutter lever is more comfortable to use than top mounted styles.

Tray with Dual Quick Release Handles

This is the most popular tray and handle set-up and our favorite for compact systems. The Quick Release Handle features a cushy rubber over-molded grip and our signature quick detachment point for the included ball arm. The included trigger extension brings the shutter lever right to your fingertips when holding the right-hand handle. 

Having a dual handle tray is great for carrying your system on the surface and makes it easier to grab onto when someone hands your housing down from a boat.
