Ikelite 6233.04 Housing for Olympus Tough TG-3, TG-4
A full-featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus TOUGH TG-3 and TG-4 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
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 carefree snorkelling 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 aluminium 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.
This brand new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion-free performance year after year. The specially formulated colour deflects the sunlight to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Durable construction keeps the system watertight shallow and at depths up to 60m (200ft), well beyond the reach of the Olympus branded housing.
Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.
Due to the position of the camera’s flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos underwater. For the best colour and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via a fibre optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fibre optic cords.
Any current model Ikelite DS strobe can be triggered fibre optically with true automatic Olympus TTL exposure using the RC1 TTL Receiver # 4412 and Fiber Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.
The Ikelite 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 DC1 6″ Dome Port # 6401 offers the best of everything: wide-angle, macro, and over-under all on one dive. This special dome port replaces the housing’s standard port and provides sharp 25mm wide-angle, full zoom through and macro capabilities, and is perfect for split shots (half-in, half-out of the water).
The WD-3 Wide Angle Dome # 6430.3 provides a mid-range angle of view with no vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image).
The W-30 Wide Angle Lens, AOI, 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 AOI, Aquatica, INON, Epoque, and other manufacturers, can be attached directly to the front of the housing’s port.
3-inch diameter colour filters press directly onto these ports. Most wide-angle lenses require a 3.6-inch diameter colour filter.
