Camera's Built-in Flash.

An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.

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 #6441.41 for tropical blue water and #6441.81 for use in green water settings.

Tray and Handles.

An optional tray provides additional stability and an attachment point for external strobes or video lights.

External Accessory Lenses.

The front of the lens port accepts 67mm threaded wide angle or macro lenses without the need for an adapter.  The Inon UCL-165M67 and the Reefnet Subsee magnifier are excellent choices. An external wide angle conversion lens increases angle of coverage so you can get much closer to the subject while still fitting everything in the frame. Minimal vignetting (shading in the corners) may be present in the widest setting when using an external wide angle lens. This can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.

External Strobes:

Inon manufactures an elegant kit to securely connect your external strobe by fiber optic cable;  The Inon Optical D Cable Type L W57 Set.
