DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Housing for Olympus XZ-1 Camera


Dive into underwater photography with our most compact true TTL camera system. The Compact Digital housing is high quality, extremely durable, and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence.

Proprietary conversion circuitry allows two-way communication between the camera and Ikelite Substrobes providing true TTL exposure. In addition to providing the most accurate automatic exposure, this ensures a faster recycling time and longer camera battery life as compared to fiber optic TTL systems. Take advantage of this powerful feature by attaching any current model Ikelite DS Substrobe. See the "External Underwater Strobes" section for complete details.

All camera controls except the Flash Open Switch are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200ft (60m).

Two 12-24 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for the secure, rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting accessories.

Includes one 1cc tube of silicone lubricant and vinyl port cover.

  • Size and Weight
  • 7" wide x 5" high x 6.2" deep including controls and lens port
  • 180mm x 130mm x 160mm

  • Slightly negative buoyancy in fresh water
Camera's Built-in Flash.
The camera's built-in flash is not operable inside of the housing. For the best exposure and true colors, we recommend adding an external strobe via sync cord. See the "External Underwater Strobes" section for more information.

External Color Filters.
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. Available as #6441.46 for tropical blue water and #6441.86 for use in green water settings. For optimum results use in combination with manual white balance (see camera user guide for information on setting custom white balance).

External Underwater Strobes (Hard-Wired TTL).
The camera's built-in flash is not operable inside of the housing. For the best exposure and true colors, we recommend adding an external strobe via sync cord. This dramatically improves recycle time and camera battery life allowing you to take more photos more quickly. Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. Unlike fiber-optic "TTL" systems, our conversion circuitry eliminates the need for the camera's built-in flash to fire. Convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages provide everything you need to take advantage of true TTL exposure. A single or dual tray and handle is required for the attachment of an external strobe.

All current model DS strobes are fully compatible with this TTL system. Older DS50 or DS125 Substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Non-Ikelite External Strobes.
Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea. Non-Ikelite strobes can be used in manual modes only. Use of a non-Ikelite strobe bypasses the housing's built-in TTL circuitry.

Strobes with a slave feature can be triggered by the camera's flash or by an Ikelite Substrobe. An included flash deflector prevents the camera's flash from creating backscatter in the image.

Optional single or dual tray and handles is required for the attachment of an external strobe. The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.
