This sophisticated housing Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Digital Camera provides everything you need to get creative with this powerful compact camera! We recommend this system for its excellent low-light capabilities and super-sharp, 24-70mm Zeiss lens. There's no greater assurance than being able to see the o-ring seal. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. 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.

This housing is just-right-sized to hold comfortably in your hand. Controls are provided for all important camera functions including the rear dial. The camera's versatile front control ring is gear driven to place the control within easy reach. A sensitive shutter lever makes it easy to half-depress the trigger for focusing and metering. All rear controls are clearly marked with engraved indicia which will never fade or fall off. Use the camera's built-in WiFi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing. The WiFi feature is only usable above water within close proximity to the connected device.

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 a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter - or "snow" - from your underwater images. The optional AF35 strobe triggers and provides automatic TTL exposure by watching the camera's built-in flash, without the need of fiber optic cords or sensors. Alternatively, two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords.

The housing port is designed to accept 3.0-inch diameter color filters, and wide angle or macro options with 67mm threads. Light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water. A subject will look darker, less colorful and somewhat grainy when viewed through even a few feet of water. The addition of a compatible wide angle accessory expands the camera's field of view underwater, providing the opportunity to get as close as possible to the subject and reduce the amount of water light passes through. The results speak for themselves - photos with the best color, exposure and clarity possible. We recommend the Ikelite W30 Wide Angle Lens or INON UWL-H100 Wide Angle Lens for excellent edge sharpness with minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image). Vignetting may be eliminated by either zooming slightly or cropping in post-production.

  • Waterproofing: Can be safely used at a maximum depth of 200'. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal.
  • Controls and Handling: Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, levers, dials, and push-buttons, provide access to all camera functions except for the flash switch and the viewfinder switch. The camera's versatile front control ring is gear-driven to make it easy to reach. A sensitive lever makes it easy to half-press the shutter for focusing and metering. All rear controls are clearly marked with engravings. The housing is configured with a 12-24 thread with 3.0" spacing for the mounting of an optional tray with single or dual handles, which will provide improved balance and handling, as well as quick-release attachment points for lighting arms. Use the camera's built-in Wi-Fi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing. Wi-Fi is only usable above water in close proximity to the connected device.
  • Construction Details: Designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. Manufactured from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
  • Lens Port: Built-in, flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter. It accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses with 67mm diameter threads for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. Both types of lenses will enable you to get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion. The recommended Ikelite W30 and INON UWL-H100 wide-angle lenses provide notable edge sharpness with minimal vignetting, which can be eliminated altogether by zooming slightly. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by the water. Filter #6441.41 for blue water and 6441.81 for green water are available.
  • Flash Use: You can add an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. It includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe. Since a built-in flash is generally only effective within a very short distance from your subject, the use of a more powerful external strobe is highly recommended. It will provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, and will virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
  • Additional Recommended Optional Accessories: The Vega Video + Photo Light offers a 2200-lumen output, a 65° beam angle, and a daylight-balanced 5700K color temperature. Run time is 45-180 min. Also available, the Gamma Waterproof Flashlight outputs 220 lumens in a concentrated 10° beam with a daylight-balanced color temperature of 6500K. Run time is over 10 hr. The Quick Release Kit for GoPro includes everything you need to attach your GoPro camera/housing to an Ikelite Quick Release Handle.
