This updated version of the original housing includes the following new features:
Olympus is the leader in providing rugged, waterproof compact cameras, perfect for any outdoor adventure! The Tough TG-3 and TG-4 cameras feature a bright, 25-100mm f/2.0-4.9 lens and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity which allows you to easily transfer photos through the housing on shore after your dive. Without a housing, these cameras are rated by Olympus to 15 m (50 ft) for care-free snorkeling and no worries in or out of the housing!
The Ikelite housing for this popular camera model has been redesigned for improved ergonomics. A side-mounted shutter lever and new zoom control make shooting a breeze. Hard anodized aluminum and acetyl controls operate smoothly and are fully serviceable for many years of enjoyment.
A new central tripod mount has a standard 1/4- 20 thread and can be connected to popular tray systems from most manufacturers.
Our brand new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion-free performance year after year. The specially formulated color deflects the sunlight to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Durable construction keeps the system watertight shallow and at depths up to 200ft (60m), well beyond the reach of the Olympus branded housing.
Due to the position of the camera's flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water. For the best color and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fiber optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optic cords.
3-inch diameter ports feature a 67mm thread on the front for the easy attachment of external wide angle and macro wet lenses. Wide angle lenses make objects appear smaller, so that you can fit more into your frame underwater. Macro close-up lenses make small objects appear larger, so that tiny creatures will fill your frame.
The WD-3 Wide Angle Dome provides mid-range angle of view with no vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image).
The W-30 Wide Angle Lens, INON UWL-H100, and other 67mm threaded wide angle lenses, provide a wider maximum angle of view. Because these are separated from the camera's lens by glass, air, and water, some vignetting and edge distortion will be present. These effects can be reduced or eliminated by using a smaller aperture, zooming in slightly, and/or cropping in post-production.
External macro lenses with 67mm threads from INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers, can be attached directly to the front of the housing's port.
3-inch diameter color filters press directly onto these ports. Most wide angle lenses require a 3.6-inch diameter color filter. Refer to the product page for information on color filter compatibility.
