Ikelite 6233.06 Housing for Olympus Tough TG-6 & TG5
NOTE: Camera NOT included (Click HERE for Camera and Housing Kit # 6233.09)
A full-featured and durable waterproof housing for Olympus Tough TG-5 and TG-6 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This robust, fully-featured housing expands the capabilities of your Tough camera from the surf down to depths of 60m (200 feet). 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.
Ikelite’s 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. They use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Their housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. Ikelite back its 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.
Wide Angle, Macro + Filters
Ikelite’s 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.
Dome Port for Olympus FCON-T02 Kit with Fisheye Lens for Olympus TG-6 # 64362 The Olympus Tough TG-series cameras already shoot out of this world super macro but haven’t really been ideal for ultra wide-angle in the past. This special dome port is designed for use with the Olympus Tough TG-6 with the special Olympus FCON-T02 Fisheye Converter Lens and CLA-T01 Adapter attached.
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, I-Dive, INON 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.
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.
It is recommended to install the Update Kit for Olympus Tough TG-6 # 9295.08 on housings produced prior to August 2019 (serial numbers UC63332 and below). The update kit improves the reliability of the Playback button operation.
