Ikelite’s Color-Correction Filters are
secured in a rubber Filter Holder that is a push-fit
over the housing port on digital still or video housings.
Filters can also be used on the Ikelite W-20 and WP-80 wide-angle
accessory lenses. The red filter is for tropical (blue) water and the
magenta filter is for cold (green) water. The filters enhance the
color balance in natural light photography. Useful to depths of
approx. 24m (80’), subject to sufficient available light. Filter use is
not recommended above water or with flash.

The External Color Filter secures over the front of the housing
port or accessory lens. If not attached, attach the lanyard to the
Filter Holder. Attach the small end of the Lanyard to the
Lanyard Attachment on the Filter Holder. Slide the large end of
the lanyard through the small end loop, and pull tight. Open
large end of the lanyard and place over the housing handle so
that the lanyard and color filter hang safely from the housing
tray. When ready to use, push the filter over the housing port or
accessory lens. This will be easier to do underwater and it is
recommended that you always install the filter underwater.
The external filter is protected with a scratch resistant coating.
Special care should always be taken when handling. Immediately
after use, rinse and gently dry the filter to avoid water spotting.
If necessary, use a mild non-abrasive soap solution or lens
cleaner, and a very soft cloth to clean the filter. Minor scratches
will usually fill with water and not affect the picture quality.
If you enter the water with the filter secured on the port or
accessory lens, you will need to remove the filter underwater to
gently remove any trapped air bubbles. You can then re-install
It is extremely important that no air bubbles are trapped
between the port or accessory lens and filter. The camera may
focus on any trapped bubbles resulting in an out-of-focus image.
For best results do not shoot directly into sunlight.
