Capture images and HD video beneath the surface with your Panasonic LUMIX LX100 digital camera in this Ikelite Underwater Housing with TTL Circuitry. It features a depth rating of 200'. The enclosure has built-in, proprietary TTL circuitry and an Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead connector, which allow for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. Mechanical controls afford access to most camera functions.

The housing has an ergonomic design with a support tray and a quick-release grip handle, in order to offer better balance and provide an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the housing is designed, made by hand, 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 built-in lens port has a flat glass front element, and accepts optional color-correction filters and wide-angle and macro conversion lenses.

Construction Details
  • Features a 200' depth rating
  • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
  • 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
  • Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Built-in, proprietary TTL circuitry and an Ikelite 5-pin bulkhead connector allow for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are also compatible, though they will afford manual exposure only
  • Strobes require single or dual TTL sync cords
  • Whether in TTL or manual mode, use of sync cord eliminates issues of signal interference, inconsistent exposure, and false triggering by stray light or another shooter's flash firing
  • Compatible DS strobes: DS50 (above serial number 70000), DS51, DS125 (above serial number 5000), DS160, DS161, and DS200 (above serial number 7163)
Exposure Adjustment
  • Housing supports true Panasonic TTL flash protocol with a direct connection to the camera's built-in flash hot shoe
  • Direct TTL communication provides numerous advantages over fiber-optic or LED-triggered systems, including more precise exposure, faster recycle times, quicker shutter response, and longer battery life, as well as elimination of false triggering
Controls and Handling
  • Mechanical controls, including knurled knobs, grooved dials, push-buttons, and a lever, provide access to all camera functions except diopter adjustment dial, aspect selector switch, front control ring, and focus selector switch
  • Rear controls are laser-engraved
  • Housing has ergonomic design with a support tray and a quick-release grip handle, in order to offer better balance and provide an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • QR handle allows for attachment and removal of arms at touch of a button
  • Soft, over-molded rubber grip is gently curved to match the palm of your hand for reduced fatigue and easy, comfortable access to controls
  • Tray and handle easily removed for storage and transport or substitution of optional tray with dual handles
Lens Port
  • Built-in lens port has a flat glass front element and a 3.9" diameter
  • Accepts optional 6441.46 blue water and 6441.86 green water color-correction filters to restore hues that get absorbed and lost underwater
  • Compatible with optional wide-angle and macro conversion lenses for increased field of view and detailed close-up shots, respectively
  • Both types of conversion lenses get you closer to your subject, cutting down on visible amount of water between you to reduce distortion and improve color accuracy
  • Optional recommended WD-4 Wide Angle Dome will not produce vignetting and is easily attached and removed
  • Optional 3.9" Port Adapter Macro allows for attachment of 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque
More Recommended Optional Accessories
  • Strobe, sync cord, and ball arm kits
  • Vega Video + Photo Light with 2200-lumen output, diffused 65° beam, and 5700K color temperature
