Ikelite Olympus TG-6 Fluorescence Photography Starter Package

Check out our review of the Ikelite TG-6 Fluoro Photography Kit

 

The Ikelite Olympus TG-6 Starter Package for Fluorescence Photography will give you a whole new perspective on the undewater world and add a new dimension to your underwater photography! This package has everything you need to get started taking underwater fluorescence photography with ease. The Ikelite TG5/TG-6 fluoro kit is perhaps the easiest-to-use fluorescence photography kit on the market. It includes an Ikelite TG-6 housing, Ikelite DS 161 strobe (with a modeling light for finding fluorescent subjects), an excitation filter for your strobe, and a yellow filter for your port. The filters themselves are relatively inexpensive. If you already have the camera system, the filters are only an additional $225 to access the magic of fluorescence! 

Because the TG-6 has no manual mode, it’s a great option for divers who don’t want to deal with settings while taking fluorescence photography. Of course, your best results are always going to be with a fully manual camera, but if you’re looking for point-and-shoot fluorescence, this is the system! The Ikelite excitation filter and yellow filters are sold separately, so you can always use them on a higher end camera system

In addition, the package also allows you to capture stunning photos with perfect exposure. It is also lightweight and compact which is ideal for traveling. Partnered with the Ikelite DS-51 Strobe and the Ikelite RC1 TTL Converter you can have perfect exposure and even achieve "black background" shots effortlessly.

 

What is underwater fluorescence photography? 

One type of hidden magic found in the dark, nighttime depths of our oceans is fluorescence. Fluorescence is when an object releases light after excitation by another source of light. Fluorescence is different than bioluminescence. Creatures that are bioluminescent will emit light independent of another source. Rather than producing their own light, creatures that fluoresce emit light at a lower wavelength than what is irradiated upon them. For example, if you shine a blue light or UV light on some corals, they will shine green in return. However, without the blue light, these corals will not emit any light. 
 
In order to capture this phenomenon on the sensor of a camera two items are needed: 
 
1. A blue or UV light – blue is preferable
 
2. A yellow filter to go over the lens of your camera
 
The blue light will act as an excitation source and “trigger” the fluorescence in your subject. The yellow filter over your camera lens will filter out extraneous blue light so that only what is fluoresced by the subject will reach the sensor. Some people also like to wear a yellow filter on their mask to see the fluorescence themselves, but it’s not technically necessary for fluoro photography.

Camera Features:

Built Rugged to Go Anywhere

Built for adventure. Designed to bring back amazing looking souvenirs. The Tough TG-6 is packed with pro features that help you nail bright, crisp outdoor shots even in challenging conditions. You’ll find imaging firepower that’s optimized for shooting action like a fast F2.0 Olympus lens, high-resolution RAW stills, and spectacular Ultra HD 4K video. Action Track Sensors record location, temperature, direction, and altitude data that bring your images and video to life. As with all Tough cameras, it’s waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. No other camera handles so much abuse while producing stunning photography like the TG-6.

Powerful Imaging

Rugged on the outside, sophisticated Olympus technologies on the inside. Tough cameras have the power to create incredibly crisp and bright shots, even in low-light environments (like underwater) or when you’re on the move (Tough records smooth HD video too). Tough is all you’ll need to capture every adventure and tell every story.

Easy to Shoot, Easy to Share

You want to capture epic adventures, not fuss with complicated controls or set-ups. That’s why Tough cameras are easy to operate. With built-in Wi-Fi for remote shooting, wireless sharing, and a Field Sensor System that includes a GPS sensor, Tough cameras help you find, shoot and share your adventures like never before.
