Ikelilte 6233.01 Underwater Housing for Olympus Tough TG-1, TG-2
The Ikelilte 6233.01 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus TOUGH TG-1 and TG-2 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
Durable clear polycarbonate construction provides a unique view of the camera to ensure correct waterproof installation and confidence underwater. The camera installs with drop-in loading for quick and easy set up. Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. Large, ergonomic controls provide access to all important camera functions.
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera’s built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful than the camera’s flash and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter – or “snow” – from your underwater images.
The 3-inch diameter ports feature a 67mm thread on the front for the easy attachment of external wide angle and macro wet lenses.
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.
