What's in the box: IK623080 Housing, 1cc Tube Silicone Lubricant, Vinyl Lanyard, Flash Diffuser, Flash Deflector and Instruction Manual
This rugged series of Olympus cameras deserves an exceptionally rugged underwater housing. The Ikelite ULTRAcompact digital housing for the Olympus Tough 8000 really delivers when performance and durability matter. The ULTRAcompact housing is high quality, built to last, and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence.
Housing is made of clear injection-molded polycarbonate to provide seamless construction and corrosion proof performance. This "Clearly Superior" design provides full view of the camera, control functions. All controls are mechanical, sealed with Quad-Ring seal glands and assurance the system is safe up to depths of 200' (60 meters).
Easy open latch and drop in camera loading make set-up a breeze. All camera controls are fully functional through the housing. Housing measures 6" (15.2 cm) wide; 4.4" (11 cm) high including controls; 3.4" (8.6 cm) deep including port. Camera and housing together weigh less than 1 lb (0.45 kg) above water and are neutral underwater. Housing includes a 1cc tube of silicone lubricant, vinyl lanyard, flash diffuser, flash deflector and Instruction Manual.
External Color Filters:
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Removable external color filters IK644131 for tropical blue water and IK644171 for green water settings provide color correction in sunny conditions up to approximately 80' (24 meters). For use without a flash filters sold separately.
Camera's Built-in Flash:
The included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between1'-3' (0.3-0.9 meters) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.
External Underwater Strobes:
Ikelite strobes are much more powerful, recycle more quickly, and eliminate more backscatter than the camera's built-in flash. The AutoFlash AF35 (SKU: IK4035) is the easiest and most affordable way to add a strobe to your system. Don't settle for flat, blue-green images. The AF35 is effective up to approximately 5' (1.5 meters) from the subject and restores the colors that are otherwise lost. An external strobe will give you 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 SKU: IK6420 Ikelite W-20 and Epoque lenses using the SKU: IK930678 port adapter. This adapter can also be used to attach 67mm threaded macro lenses.
