DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Video Housing for JVC Picsio GC-FM2 Compact Video Camera


Dive into underwater videography with this incredibly compact and simple to use system. The Compact Video housing is high quality, built to last, and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence. A full line of accessories allows you to really get creative with your underwater video.

Power on/off, video recording start/stop, zoom and still image shooting are accessible through the housing. Easy open latch and drop in camera loading make set-up a breeze. Depth rated to 200ft (60m).

Housing includes a 1cc tube of silicone lubricant, vinyl lanyard and removable UR/Pro color correcting filter for tropical blue water settings.

Compatible with JVC GC-FM2A, GC-FM2Y and GC-FM2B models.

Size and Weight.
  • 5.9" wide x 4.4" high x 3.3" deep ( including controls and lens port ).
  • 15cm x 11cm x 8cm.
  • Housing with camera weighs less than 1lb (450g) above water.
  • Slightly positive buoyancy underwater.
Spare Parts.
  • #0132.45 Spare Main Housing O-Ring
  • #5020 Silicone Lubricant in 4 1cc Tubes
Trays and Handles.
Optional trays and handles available for comfortable handling underwater and to allow for the attachment of external lighting.

External Color Filters.
The included UR/Pro color correcting filter (#6441.31) for tropical blue water settings replaces some of the reds and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. The #6441.71 removable color filter is available separately for use in green water settings.

Pro-V8 LED Video Lite. (sold separately)
Additional light is necessary in cloudy conditions, when shooting under ledges, at night or at depths beyond 60 to 80 feet. The Pro-V8 LED Video Lite gives all the light you need to bring out the ocean's true colors. The Pro-V8 features a warm, even 45° beam over a whopping 10-hour burn time. The flex arm allows the light to be repositioned effortlessly. Requires the #9523.51 Video Compact Tray, sold separately.
For more light, add a second Pro-V8 LED or the PRO-2800 LED system with the #9523.52 Dual Tray. Requires #9523.51 Tray to attach to the Compact Video Housing.

External Accessory Lenses. (sold separately)
An external wide angle conversion lens increases angle of coverage so you can get much closer to your subject while still fitting everything in the frame. By reducing the amount of water between the subject and your camera lens, the resulting image will be more crisp and colorful.

Attach 67mm threaded #6420 Ikelite W-20, Inon Type II, and Epoque lenses using the #9306.78 Port Adapter. This adapter can also be used to attach 67mm threaded macro lenses. The W-20 Lens accepts filters #6441.42 for blue water or #6441.82 for green water settings.

Attach bayonet style Inon macro and UWL-100 28AD, UWL-105AD or UFL-165AD wide angle lenses using the #9306.85 port adapter.
