This Ikelite Underwater Housing with Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS40 Digital Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles Ikelite's #6170.40 Underwater Housing with the compatible black Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS40 Digital Camera. Take advantage of the ability to capture photos and videos beneath the water's surface at a maximum depth of 200'.
The housing's large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except the LVF button. Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated, 3.9" / 99 mm diameter, flat glass lens port accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses and color-correction filters. Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables.
Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-ZS40 Digital Camera features an 18.1MP High Sensitivity MOS image sensor and Venus Engine Processor for high-resolution still photos, Full HD 1080p video recording at 60 fps, low-light sensitivity to ISO 6400, and full-resolution continuous shooting at up to 10 fps. The Leica DC Vario-Elmar 30x Zoom Lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-720mm, covering wide-angle to extended telephoto perspectives. The camera is also equipped with a 3.0", 920k-dot LCD monitor and a 0.2", 200k-dot electronic viewfinder. The built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables instant transferring of photos or movies to linked mobile devices, which can also be used for remote shooting and viewing. GPS functionality gives you geotagging capabilities.
