Ikelite Olympus Stylus 1S Underwater Housing
Ikelite Olympus Stylus 1S Underwater Housing (6139.51)
The Ikelite Olympus Stylus 1S Underwater Housing is compact and lightweight and provides operation of all important camera functions up to depths of 200 feet (60m). Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off. The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.
Durability and corrosion free performance
Our brand new ABS-PC blend 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 gray color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the o-ring for simple and confident assembly. We have eliminated the need for an o-ring groove or channel which can trap sand, dirt, or debris. Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The clear back allows you to see the o-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes.
Color correction and external lighting
Additional color correction and clarity can be obtained by adding a color filter or external light. The lens port of the housing accept our 3-inch diameter color filters. Color filters attach via a press fit and are available for both tropical blue water and green water settings. A color filter reduces the amount of light that reaches the camera's sensor, so they are most effective in sunny conditions at relatively shallow depths up to approximately 80 feet (24m).
True TTL exposure
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the Olympus Stylus 1s flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control. At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes must be used in manual exposure modes only.
This housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera's external flash hot shoe. The bulkhead connection has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends.
The camera's built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers. Use of a fiber optic connector requires the camera's built-in flash to fire, reducing battery life and bypassing the TTL functionality of the housing.
Wide angle, macro, and color filters
The housing provides full access to the camera's zoom range. The design of this camera's lens limits the addition of external wide angle accessories. For wide angle photography, we recommend the WD-3 Wide Angle Dome which restores the camera's true angle of coverage and clarity underwater. Unlike a wet lens, the WD-3 is super sharp edge-to-edge, free of dark shadows in the corners of the image, and lightweight for travel. The WD-3 can be removed and replaced underwater so that you can shoot wide angle and macro on the same dive.
The port is threaded for the direct attachment of 67mm threaded accessory macro lenses. We recommend a macro lens which is designed for underwater use like those from IDAS, INON, Subsee, Nauticam, and other manufacturers. 67mm threaded wide angle wet lenses may be attached to the front of the lens port, but will exhibit vignetting (dark shadows around the edges of the image). Vignetting can be reduced by zooming in or cropping the photo in post-production.
