Press Release

Ikelite™ Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III

This sophisticated new housing housing is designed to include everything needed to get creative with this powerful compact camera! The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III is superb for underwater shooting, with excellent low-light capabilities and a super-sharp, 24-70mm Zeiss lens.

The Ikelite 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.

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.

The housing port is designed to accept 3.0-inch diameter color filters, and wide angle or macro options with 67mm threads. Ikelite W30 and INON UWL-H100 wide angle lenses each provide excellent edge sharpness with minimal vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the image). The cameras built-in flash can be used for primary illumination or to trigger an external strobe. Two ports are provided for the attachment of optional fiber optic cords.

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. All housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. This housing includes a 1-year warranty against manufacturer defect and is backed by over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

The Ikelite Housing for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III starts shipping in mid-July and is available for order through any Authorized Ikelite Dealer. For more information, visit the housing’s page on the Ikelite website.
