The Ikelite 6170.20 Compact Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 / TZ30 Digital Camera is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 / TZ30 camera. It has a depth rating of 200' (60 m).

The housing provides access to all camera functions via mechanical controls. The camera's built-in flash is usable. Drop-in camera loading makes setup easy. The case is constructed from durable polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal. Housing buoyancy is nearly neutral in freshwater.

You can attach optional 67mm macro lenses to the housing's lens port via the 9306.82 Adapter (sold separately). The WD-4 Wide Angle Dome is also compatible, providing a 26mm equivalent focal length. Macro lenses will enable extreme close-up shots, while wide-angle lenses increase your angle of coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame. Both types of lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, thus improving image quality. Bayonet lenses are not compatible with this port.

To restore colors that get absorbed underwater, you can use optional external color correction filters. Use 6441.46 for blue or 6441.86 for green water.

You can use optional external strobes to improve lighting, but they must be triggered as slave units. To soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and thus prevent backscatter and hard shadows, a flash diffuser and flash deflector are included.

The housing is equipped with a 12-24 thread with 3" (7.6 cm) spacing for the mounting of an optional tray with single or dual handles. Such a tray provides attachment points for lighting.

Color Correction Filters
Replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost due to absorption underwater. Optional filters available: 6441.46 for blue water or 6441.86 for green water. For use without a strobe
Strobe Use
You can use optional external strobes to improve lighting, but they must be triggered as slave units.

The optional AF35 AutoFlash is an automatic optical slave strobe featuring exposure adjustment capabilities. It comes complete with tray and handle
