- 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. The AF35 AutoFlash Kit provides automatic "TTL" exposure by optical signal from the camera's built-in flash. The AF35 is the easiest way to add color and vibrancy to your photos. 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. Several options are available for the attachment of external wide angle and macro lenses:
Attach 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20 and other lenses directly to the front of the port. This housing is not compatible with bayonet-style accessory lenses.
Slight vignetting (shading in the corners) will be present in the widest setting when using an external accessory lens. This effect can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.
- Trays with Release Handles
Optional Tray with Release Handle(s) provide comfortable handling underwater and attachment points for substrobes and accessories.
