Ikelite Underwater Camera Housing and Olympus TG-5 Camera
Comlete package of the Olympus TG-5 Camera and the great, new Ikelite Underwater Housing.
The TG-5 has a fast 25-100mm mid-range zoom lens with a macro mode that betters almost every other compact out there right now. The TG-5 supports ultra HD 4K video and RAW image capture, which is a powerful tool for post-dive color corrections using either Adobe Lightroom or the included software. The TG-5 is waterproofed to 50' (15.2m) even without a housing, making it the ideal outdoor companion.
This housing is designed for a deeper depth rating and more robust handling than the comparable Olympus brand model. The front of the lens port has a standard 67mm thread for the direct attachment of most popular wide angle and macro wet lenses. A side-mounted shutter lever is more comfortable to use than top mounted styles.
Ikelite Underwater Housing
The Ikelite TG5 housing for this popular camera model has been redesigned for improved ergonomics. A side-mounted shutter lever and new zoom control make shooting a breeze. Hard anodized aluminum and acetyl controls operate smoothly and are fully serviceable for many years of enjoyment.
A new central tripod mount has a standard 1/4- 20 thread and can be connected to popular tray systems from most manufacturers.
Our brand new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion-free performance year after year. The specially formulated color deflects the sunlight to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Durable construction keeps the system watertight shallow and at depths up to 200ft (60m), well beyond the reach of the Olympus branded housing.
Due to the position of the camera's flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water. For the best color and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fiber optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optic cords.
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.
