The housings port accepts optional 67mm threaded waterproof Wide-Angle lenses
such as the Ikelite #6420 W-20, Epoque DCL-20 and Inon UWL-100 Type 2. These
waterproof lenses secure to the outside of the lens port.
Should you elect to use an optional waterproof lens, carefully thread the lens on
the front of the lens port on the housing. The lens threads are very fine; DO NOT cross
thread. It should screw on very easily. If it is difficult to turn, you are cross threading.

Other brand batteries may not fit inside the housing. If the battery selected overhangs
the camera tray, then the battery is too large and will cause the housing to leak.
Make sure you have loaded an appropriate digital cassette tape in the camera.
Remove the lens cap, lens hood and cord from the camera. Otherwise, they may
interfere with the housing seal.
The cameras auto focus feature is utilized underwater. For best results, move in close
to your subject and use the wide angle range to shoot thru as little water as possible. The
full zoom range is accessible underwater.
