Description

Capture clear, detailed images and video at depths as great as 200' with this Ikelite Underwater Housing for your Panasonic Lumix ZS200/TZ200 or TZ202 camera. Two ports for optional fiber-optic cables enable the connection of external strobes. Large, easy-to-reach controls, including a shutter lever (extendable for handle use with optional # 4077.93 extension), provide access to all camera functions. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from 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 back plate is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated 3.9" flat glass lens port accepts the separately sold Ikelite WD-4 Wide-Angle Dome # 6430.4 for a wider angle of view and 0.75 magnification with no edge distortion. An adapter allows the use of 67mm-threaded macro lenses (threaded wide-angle lenses are not recommended). Optional color-correction filters can also be added to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.

Note: the camera cannot be zoomed beyond 135mm equivalent inside the housing.
