This housing has been designed for ergonomic underwater use. A side-mounted shutter lever makes shooting a breeze. Hard anodized aluminum and acetyl controls operate smoothly and are fully serviceable for many years of enjoyment.

Two 1/4-20 mounts on the bottom of the housing allow the rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting arms.

Our ABS-PC blend housing material provides strength and corrosion-free performance year after year. The specially formulated color deflects the sunlight to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Durable construction keeps the system watertight shallow and at depths up to 200ft (60m).

Ikelite products 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. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

Wide Angle Photography

The FCON-T02 Circular Fisheye Converter (not included) provides a circular fisheye perspective when the camera is set to 24mm, and diagonal fisheye capabilities when the camera is zoomed. The resulting image quality is spectacular; comparable in coverage to a Canon or Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye lens on a full frame DSLR body. It's the perfect combination for ultra wide angle, close focus wide angle, and over-under underwater photography.

The optical grade acrylic dome provides super sharp and bright imaging while being lightweight for handling and travel.

This dome port cannot be removed and replaced underwater. The dome port may be used with or without lens attached. Without the lens attached some reflections may be present when shooting towards a bright light source (like the sun).

Macro Photography

The good news is that you aren't limited to a fisheye or ultra wide-angle perspective. The camera may be zoomed while the lens is attached and can focus up to a 30mm macro equivalent underwater.

The dome port precludes the attachment of external lenses or color filters.

Flash

Due to the position of the camera's flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water. For the best color and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fiber optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optic cords.

Any current model Ikelite DS strobe can be triggered fiber optically with true automatic Olympus TTL exposure using the RC1 TTL Receiver # 4412 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing. Read more about fiber optic strobe options here...


Compatibility

This housing accommodates Olympus Tough TG-5 or TG-6 cameras. However, only the TG-6 camera is compatible with the Olympus FCON-T02 Fisheye Lens (sold separately). This housing is only compatible with Olympus Tough TG-5 and TG-6 cameras as shipped by the manufacturer. Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, LCD covers, or other accessories. 

Differences in lens and control placement prevent other Olympus camera models from being used in or adapted to this housing. We are not aware of any other models which may be used in or adapted to this particular housing.
