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 back "O" ring seal for assurance the system is safe. Maximum operating depth is 200 feet (60 m).
Housing measures 11" (27cm) wide with the removable handle bar attached; 8" (20cm) high including the removable base; and 8" (20cm) deep including knobs and port. Weight above water is approximately 9 lbs. (4 kg) for easy packing, and very slightly negative in saltwater for stability and comfortable handling.
The Base removes instantly with a unique toggle clamp for traveling or attaching of the optional Pro Video-Lite 3 battery pack. The handle assembly detaches from the housing by removal of just two nuts for packing.
Controls for the Camera Control Dial, Manual Button and the LCD Screen Touch Pad provide full access to setting white balance and white balance shift.
Sony NP-FH40, FH50, FH60 & FH70 batteries are accommodated.
The included removable UR/Pro filter enhances red tones in tropical blue water settings with available sunlight at depths up to 80 feet (24 m). An accessory green water filter #6441.81 is also available for color correction and more natural tones in green water settings.
The housing port is threaded allowing the use of optional external 67mm threaded wide-angle conversion lenses including the #6420 Ikelite W-20, Epoque DCL-20, and Inon UWL-100 Type II.
A magnified Super-Eye Viewfinder is provided for enhanced viewing through a diving mask. The camera's LCD monitor can be viewed from the rear of the housing using the External Mirror featured on the side of the housing.
The housing includes Image Reversing Circuitry. The circuitry "flips" the image in the camera's LCD so that its reflection in the mirror appears correct left-to-right.* The External Mirror is hinged to fold against the housing side for travel.
