This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 or GH4 mirrorless Micro Four Thirds digital camera. It has a depth rating of 200'.
The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via mechanical controls placed within comfortable reach. The case is constructed from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal and camera. Housing buoyancy is nearly neutral in freshwater. A compatible lens port from Ikelite's Standard or Modular system is required and sold separately.
Though the camera's built-in flash is not usable, the housing supports TTL flash metering with optional external strobes--without requiring the built-in flash to fire. Strobes connect to the housing via optional sync cords. Tweak your exposure or take total control without taking your hand off the housing. Non-Ikelite strobes may also be used, but will provide manual exposure only.
Included with the housing is an aluminum tray with rubberized right and left-hand grips for improved handling and the attachment of external lighting arms, strobes and video lights. Also supplied are two sets of zoom gear sleeves: one for use with large-diameter zoom lenses, and the other for use with smaller-diameter zooms. The housing is made by hand in the USA.

A lever control ensures that your video will start and stop without the shaking sometimes caused by pushing a button

A port from Ikelite's Standard or Modular system is required and sold separately. The lens must be less than 3.3" (83mm) to fit into Ikelite ports. It must focus to at least 12" (30 cm) to be used in a dome port, or else a +4 close-up lens must be added

Access exposure compensation in TTL mode, as well as 7 manual power settings in half-stop increments. Strobe settings indicated by LED lights. Non-Ikelite strobes may also be used, but will provide manual exposure only
