DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Video Housing for Sony HDR-CX550 & HXR-MC50 Video Cameras


Molded of clear polycarbonate to provide seamless construction and corrosion proof performance. This "Clearly Superior" design provides full view of the camcorder, control functions, and assurance the system is safe up to depths of 200 feet (60 meters).

The camera's large viewing screen can be viewed using the External Mirror featured on the side of the housing. Included Image Reversing Circuitry "flips" the image in the camera's LCD so that its reflection in the mirror appears correct left-to-right. Camera microphone is disabled when Reversing Circuitry is turned on. The External Mirror is hinged to fold against the housing side for travel.

A magnified Super-Eye Viewfinder is provided for enhanced viewing of the camera's optical viewfinder through a diving mask. The camera requires that the LCD monitor be closed to use the optical viewfinder. This is a limitation caused by the camera, not the housing.

Controls for the LCD screen touch pad provide full access to setting white balance and white balance shift.

The base removes instantly with a unique toggle clamp for traveling or attaching of the optional Pro Video Lite 3 battery pack. The handle assembly detaches from the housing by removal of just two nuts for packing.

The housing accommodates Sony FV50, FV60, FV70 and FV100 batteries.

  • 27cm x 20cm x 21cm.
  • 8.1lb (3.7kg) above water.
  • Slightly negative in saltwater for stability.
Color Correcting Filters.
The included UR/Pro Color Filter provides color correction in tropical blue water with available sunlight up to 80 feet (24 meters). An optional filter #6441.81 is also available to achieve more natural tones in green water settings.

Lighting Options.
Watch your video quality improve dramatically by adding light to your system. The Pro-V8 LED Video Lite is the ultimate in easy and affordable video lighting. This light boasts a bright and even 45° angle of coverage over a 10 hour burn time. Color temperature is daylight balanced and usable with or without a color filter.

Or opt for the professional grade coverage of the Pro Video Lite 3. This powerhouse features a super bright, high intensity halogen light and a 100° spread.

External Wide Angle and Macro Lenses.
The housing port features 67mm threads to allow for the direct attachment of external 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. External wide angle lenses provide no optical advantage with the Sony CX550 due to severe vignetting.

Internal Wide Angle Lens Option.
Special ports are available for use with Raynox DCR-730/DCR-731 wide-angle lenes. Optional ports sold separately as dome port #9306.70 or flat lens port #9306.71. Raynox lens not included. Use of this lens requires a 37-52mm adapter ring. Lens and adapter ring not available for purchase through Ikelite.
