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. The camera's large viewing screen can be seen easily through the housing back.
Fail-safe mechanical controls are provided for important camera functions. The laser touch control on the side of the camera's LCD screen cannot be operated through the housing. Menu functions controlled by the laser touch controls are not accessible in this installation.
The tray and handles remove with just two nuts for packing. Includes two 3/8-16 threaded stud mounts with wing-nuts for attachment of PRO-2800, Pro-V8 or Pro Video mounting arms. Optional weighted bases are available for additional stability above and below water. Specifications

Light is essential to bringing out the vibrancy and colors of underwater life in your video. Several options are available to add a video light to this system:
The Pro-V8 LED light is a compact and affordable 500 lumen video light. It easily doubles as a focus light and is compatible with any still or video system.
The PRO-2800 LED is the ultimate in output and angle of coverage. The compact light head produces an incredible 2800 lumens with a natural, daylight balanced color temperature. The 100_ flood light is free of hot spots. A detachable, rechargeable NiMH battery pack allows you to quickly change to a spare and keep shooting all day long.External Wide Angle and Macro Lenses
The housing port is threaded allowing the use of the optional #6420 Ikelite lens or 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro lenses available from other manufacturers. The W-20 is a 0.56x wide angle conversion "wet lens" which can be removed and replaced underwater.
