Ikelite announced this week at DEMA a new compact high-definition underwater setup. The system uses a compact JVC HD Camera that can also take still pictures. The camera can record in full 1080p resolution and storage is on SD High Capicty Cards. The 2″ LCD is viewable directly thru the housing.
For those familiar with the Ikelite UltraCompact housing, this camera utilizes the same housing turned vertically.
A compact handle and LED light are also available specifically for this housing for a complete bundle. External lenses are also available some requiring a port adapter.
The complete setup with housing is depth rating to 200 feet and is very compact with full control available thru the housing. The housing and camera is available immediately for $460 thru any Ikelite dealer. Ikelite also has a housing for the Flip Camcorder.
