Compatibility with Sony DSC-RX100 series/MPK-URX100A

INON INC. is pleased to announce compatibility of existing INON products with Sony DSC-RX100 (*1), DSC-RX100M2 (*1), DSC-RX100M3 (*1), DSC-RX100M4 (*1), DSC-RX100M5 (*1) and their genuine underwater housing "MPK-URX100A" (*1).

(*1)
Contact Sony Marketing Inc. for detail of camera. INON Inc. confirms product compatibility based on a camera available in Japan.

■ Attachment Lens Compatibility ■

The "MPK-URX100A" underwater housing has 67mm screw mount to attach below INON attachment lenses directly.
For wide imaging, INON "UWL-H100 28M67 Type2" (*2)(*3) is compatible and its super dome option "Dome Lens Unit II for UWL-H100" (*2) further increases to shoot semi-fisheye imaging.

--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 620 6

For macro shooting, standard magnification "UCL-330" (*4)(*5), high power "UCL-165M67" (*4)(*5) are compatible. The discontinued high-power and high quality "UCL-100M67" is also usable.
Also INON underwater micro fisheye lens UFL-M150 ZM80 (*5)(*6)(*7) is compatible to capture underwater world through a view of a tiny fish to create unique image only by this lens.

(*2)
Vignetting is observed at zoom wide end both on land and underwater. Crop the image after shooting or zoom in until no vignetting is observed

(*3)
"UWL-H100 28M67 Type1" is not compatible. Attempting forced installation of Type1 would cause interference of the lens barrel and housing lens port surface resulting in accidental damage.

(*4)
From zoom wide end to middle range on land and underwater will have vignetting. Zoom in until no vignetting is observed.

(*5)
The camera system will have buoyancy when installing only one of this product. Adjust total underwater weight by using other accessories to get slightly negative buoyancy to avoid accidental rapid ascent.

(*6)
Optional "M27-M67 Mount Converter for UFL-M150 ZM80" is required.

(*7)
Using [Optical Zoom Only] setting will have significant vignetting even at zoom telephoto end (DSC-RX100M3, DSC-RX100M4 or DSC-RX100M5). When shooting still images with image quality setting other than [RAW] or [RAW+JPEG], using zoom setting [On: Clear Image Zoom] enables you to zoom in to eliminate vignetting. When shooting movie, significant vignetting will be observed as [Clear Image Zoom] is not usable.

■ Strobe/LED flashlight Compatibility ■

The highly accurate “S-TTL” Auto mode of INON Z-240/D-2000/S-2000 is supported when connecting via INON “Optical D Cable Type L” products.

(*8)
When installing only single strobe/LED light via INON "Shoe Base" on the underwater housing, the camera system may get buoyant. Adjust total underwater weight by using other accessories to get slightly negative buoyancy to avoid accidental rapid ascent.




■ Arm System Compatibility ■

Grip Base M1
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 605 3

D Holder
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 431 8

Shoe Base
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 356 4

Grip Base D4 (*9)
--Available in the market
--JAN code: 456212143 430 1

The "Grip Base M1" is a base arm firmly attached on an underwater housing with two tripod screws and equipped legs on the base provide stable placement of combined housing. As same as "Grip Base D4", wide variety of INON adapters/bases is compatible with the "Grip Base M1" and easy to set-up multiple lighting system with dual strobe configuration by attaching extra "D Holder".

The compact light arm "Shoe Base" is directly attached on the housing accessory shoe.

(*9)
"D Holder" of "Grip Base D4" is for left side use only. When attaching on the right hand side of the housing, space between "D Holder" and the housing becomes extremely narrow and that obstructs opening/closing the housing buckle.
