The 6038.55 Underwater Housing for Sony HDR-CX580V / HDR-PJ580V/VE Camcorder from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Sony Handycam Camcorder. It has a depth rating of 200' (60 m).

The housing provides access to most camcorder functions, including Power on/off, Record start/stop, Auto white balance, Manual white balance, Zoom, Mode button, and Snapshot, via mechanical controls. Adjust white balance with the mere push of a button. The case is constructed from durable polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal. Housing buoyancy is near-neutral.

You can attach optional 67mm macro lenses to the exterior of the housing's flat glass lens port. The optional Raynox DCR-730, DCR-731, and HDS-680 wide-angle lenses can be attached directly to the camcorder, inside the housing, when using the optional 9306 Dome Port or 9306.1 Flat Port. Macro lenses will enable extreme close-up shots, while wide-angle lenses increase your angle of coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame. Both types of lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, thus improving image quality.

To restore colors that get absorbed underwater, you can use external color correction filters. The 6441.41 blue water filter is included with the housing, and the 6441.81 green water filter is sold separately. The optional PRO-2800 LED video light has a brightness of 2800 lumens and a natural, daylight-balanced color temperature. It can also double as a focus light for macro shooting.

The housing is equipped with 3/8"-16 studs with 1.75" (4.4 cm) spacing for the mounting of the included aluminum tray and handles. The handles provide attachment points for lighting, as well as comfortable angled grips.
