A full featured and durable underwater housing for Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100, DC-LX100 II and Leica D-LUX Type 109 digital cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
Capture photos and video 200' beneath the surface with your Panasonic LUMIX LX100, LX100 II or Leica D-Lux Typ 109 digital camera, thanks to this updated version of the dedicated Ikelite Underwater Housing. The large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except for the flash and viewfinder switches. This version adds an ergonomic, side-mounted shutter lever, and offers improved zoom and rear dial control. Two 1/4"-20 mounts have also been added on the bottom for connection to a tray.
Additionally, while the rear plate is clear, the front, top, and sides of the housing are now made of a white ABS/polycarbonate blend, which is still corrosion resistant but also reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface. The housing features built-in, proprietary TTL circuitry and an Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead connector, which combine to allow for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode.
An integrated flat glass lens port with a 3.9" diameter accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses to enhance your view. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore hues that get absorbed by the water.
