Capture photos and Ultra HD 4K video beneath the surface with this Aquatica AGH4 Underwater Housing, which fits Panasonic's Lumix GH4 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera. It features a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426' upon request, and is equipped with a moisture alarm/pressure sensor to alert you in the unlikely event of a leak. This version also includes a vacuum check system, which consists of a valve and pump and is pre-installed at the factory. Additionally, the enclosure has two optical connectors for attaching optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables.

Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions, and the ergonomic dual-grip design improves balance and handling. The grips also offer attachment points for lighting arms. The housing is constructed from anodized aluminum for resistance to corrosion, and the push-buttons and control shafts are made from durable stainless steel. For further protection against the elements, the housing features sacrificial anodes and a tough, baked-on powder coating.

The AGH4 ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable ports are available for different lenses. For full compatibility, see Port Chart. The housing includes the standard Galileo-type optical viewfinder and accepts the optional Aqua View Finders, which provide an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.
