Ikelite 6233.14 Housing for Olympus Tough TG-6 with Dome Port for FCON-T02 Fisheye
About this Product
A full featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus Tough TG-6 cameras. If you’re looking to shoot everything from split shots (half-in, half-out of the water) to wide angle fisheye to macro on the same dive then this housing is for you. Recommended for use in conjunction with the FCON-T02 Fisheye Lens (sold separately). Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This housing has been designed for ergonomic underwater use. A side-mounted shutter lever makes shooting a breeze. Hard anodized aluminium and acetyl controls operate smoothly and are fully serviceable for many years of enjoyment.
Two 1/4-20 mounts on the bottom of the housing allow the rotation-free attachment of optional trays and lighting arms.
Our ABS-PC blend housing material 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).
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.
Wide Angle Photography
The FCON-T02 Circular Fisheye Converter (not included) provides a circular fisheye perspective when the camera is set to 24mm, and diagonal fisheye capabilities when the camera is zoomed. The resulting image quality is spectacular; comparable in coverage to a Canon or Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye lens on a full frame DSLR body. It’s the perfect combination for ultra wide angle, close focus wide angle, and over-under underwater photography.
The optical grade acrylic dome provides super sharp and bright imaging while being lightweight for handling and travel.
This dome port cannot be removed and replaced underwater. The dome port may be used with or without lens attached. Without the lens attached some reflections may be present when shooting towards a bright light source (like the sun).
The good news is that you aren’t limited to a fisheye or ultra wide-angle perspective. The camera may be zoomed while the lens is attached and can focus up to a 30mm macro equivalent underwater.
The dome port precludes the attachment of external lenses or colour filters.
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 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 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 Fibre Optic Cord # 4501. The AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.
This housing accommodates Olympus Tough TG-5 or TG-6 cameras. However, only the TG-6 camera is compatible with the Olympus FCON-T02 Fisheye Lens (sold separately). This housing is only compatible with Olympus Tough TG-5 and TG-6 cameras as shipped by the manufacturer. Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, LCD covers, or other accessories.
Differences in lens and control placement prevent other Olympus camera models from being used in or adapted to this housing. We are not aware of any other models which may be used in or adapted to this particular housing.
