The Panasonic DMW-MCTZ20 Marine Case for Lumix DMC-ZS15 / -ZS10 / -ZS8 Digital Camera is a durable, clear polycarbonate underwater housing for your Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera. Enjoy the ability to shoot underwater, exploring the many treasures the ocean has to offer. The housing has a depth rating of 131' (40 m), allowing you to take full advantage of the camera's Underwater Mode, which automatically optimizes exposure and color when shooting beneath the surface, helping to restore colors that are lost underwater. You'll also be able to fully enjoy the camera's ability to take great wide-angle shots, allowing you to get closer to your subject while still fitting everything in-frame, thus cutting down on distortion caused by the water.

An included diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's flash is used.

This base allows the housing to accept the following macro / close-up lenses from INON: UCL-330 and UCL-165 M67 (not included).

          This thing has rounded edges and big buttons, like Tony Stark was asked to design Hasbro's "My First Camera". All camera buttons and functions are accessible from the case, the glass is positioned to accommodate the lens zoom, and the fit is tight and solid. Read the instruction manual! Proper care and use of grease on the seal is important.

            Case is light weight and easy to use. Used for snorkling in the Turks and Cacios, great photos. can even be used in the rain, by the pool or even in the snow.

            Cost is a bit expensive, but get your camera wet and you will be sorry you did not buy this case.

              Recently purchased this case so I could take my panasonic zs8 with me while scube diving. So far I have had it down to about 7o feet with no issues what so ever. Buttons are easy to use while wearing gloves. My only wish would be that they include a lens cover, even just something to snap over the lens to protect it while traveling or not in use. Diffuser is a nice touch and works well when using the flash underwater for close subjects. Case fits the camera like a glove. Very impressed with the quality.

                Great case. It is a little bigger than I expected but it fits my camera very nicely. Haven't had a chance to take real underwater photos yet but I'm excited to!

                Comments about Panasonic DMW-MCTZ20 Marine Case for Lumix DMC-ZS15 / -ZS10 / -ZS8 Digital Camera:

                Went snorkeling in Belize over 2012 spring break and couldn't be more pleased with a product purchase.

                It was my first time snorkeling with a camera so had to get used to the basics of underwater exposure, etc. - not that different than land; just something to think about. Took a bit to learn how to point the camera at the subject (and hope for a good shot) as with bright sunlight behind you when snorkeling at the water surface, the camera display screen at times is difficult to read. Would venture a guess that divers wouldn't have to deal with this.

                That said, it didn't deter case usage as I took probably 700 underwater shots of the 1400 I took on the trip; a ton of great underwater shots while some didn't come out due to focus, subject moved, etc. - nothing you wouldn't expect. Underwater movies came out great too.

                The camera is COMPLETELY functionable through the underwater case controls. The quality and design of the case is impressive. Instruction set is short and very easy to understand. By following the basic care instructions, I anticipate the case will be around for a long time. Simply some of the best money I've spent on a new toy in a while.

                One tip: after getting in the water, make sure any bubbles on the case lens are cleared off, otherwise they show and/or the camera focuses on them in autofocus mode. This happened once in 15 snorkeling outings on the trip, but of course in a couple nice shots the subject is mildly obscured by the bubbles. Underwater lesson learned.

                And B+H was very helpful when I called their product expert and asked about the product.

                Overall a great product and purchase experience.

                  Great housing for snorkelling and diving.
                  Its small and easy to handle, my ikelite housing was to bulky.
                  Its all good no problems.
