Ikelite 6233.06 Underwater Housing for Olympus Tough TG-5, TG-6
The Ikelite 6233.06 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus Tough TG-5 and TG-6 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
A side-mounted shutter lever makes shooting a breeze. Hard anodized aluminum and acetyl controls operate smoothly and are fully serviceable for many years of enjoyment.
Two 1/4-20 mounts on the bottom of the housing allow the rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting arms.
The ABS-PC blend housing material 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).
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.
Any current model Ikelite DS strobe can be triggered fiber optically with true automatic Olympus TTL exposure using the RC1 TTL Receiver # 4412 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.
The 3″ diameter ports feature a 67mm thread on the front for the easy attachment of external wide angle and macro wet lenses. External macro lenses with 67mm threads from INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers, can be attached directly to the front of the housing’s port.
