Ikelite 6116.15 Sony Cyber-shot RX100 MkIII, IV & V, V(A) Housing
About this Product
A full featured and durable underwater housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III, IV, V, and V(A) cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
There’s no greater assurance than being able to see the o-ring seal. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal.
Ikelite’s new white ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
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. Ikelitee’s back their products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.
A new slide-in, front-loading camera mounting tray makes this housing a breeze to set up and shoot. Controls are provided for all important camera functions including a re-designed, spring-loaded rear dial control. Rear push-button controls are laser engraved for identification with a new bright red push button for the video record start/stop. A sensitive shutter lever makes it easy to half-depress the trigger for focusing and metering.
Use the camera’s built-in WiFi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing. The WiFi feature is only usable above water within close proximity to the connected device.
Due to the position of the camera’s flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos underwater. For the best colour and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fibre optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fibre optic cords.
Any Ikelite DS strobe may be connected using the Fiber Optic Converter # 4401.1 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.
Wide-angle, Macro + Filters
Ikelite’s 3-inch diameter ports feature a 67mm thread on the front for the easy attachment of external wide angle and macro wet lenses. Wide angle lenses make objects appear smaller, so that you can fit more into your frame underwater. Macro close-up lenses make small objects appear larger, so that tiny creatures will fill your frame.
The WD-3 Wide Angle Dome provides mid-range angle of view with no vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image).
The W-30 Wide Angle Lens, INON UWL-H100, and other 67mm threaded wide angle lenses, provide a wider maximum angle of view. Because these are separated from the camera’s lens by glass, air, and water, some vignetting and edge distortion will be present. These effects can be reduced or eliminated by using a smaller aperture, zooming in slightly, and/or cropping in post-production.
External macro lenses with 67mm threads from INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers, can be attached directly to the front of the housing’s port.
3-inch diameter color filters press directly onto these ports. Most wide angle lenses require a 3.6-inch diameter color filter.
Optional 6″ Dry Dome
The DC2 6″ Dome Port # 6402 offers the best of everything: wide angle, macro, and over-under all on one dive. This special dome port replaces the housing’s standard port and provides sharp 24mm wide angle and is perfect for split shots (half-in, half-out of the water). Approximately 3/4 of the camera’s zoom range is usable behind the dome and macro images can be captured with the dome installed.
Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark I, Mark II, and Mark VI cameras are not usable in this housing due to differences in lens and control placement.
