Capture images and HD video at 200' beneath the surface with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. There are also dual fiber-optic cable ports for flash connection. Mechanical controls provide access to all important camera functions.

The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with an ergonomic quick-release grip handle, which improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and the camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.

The housing is shipped without a required lens port, and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses from Panasonic and Olympus. For compatibility, see Port Chart.

Construction Details
  • Features a depth rating of 200'
  • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
  • Manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera
  • Camera's large, bright LCD screen can be viewed edge-to-edge through back of housing
  • Due to proximity to nearby camera controls, housing does not provide access to camera's optical viewfinder
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector allow for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord
  • Circuitry tells camera that TTL external flash is attached, allowing camera to adjust exposure more accurately than with slave flash units
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible, too, but will afford manual exposure only
  • Hard-wired flash connection via sync cord eliminates issues of signal interference, false triggering, and inconsistent exposure due to weak transmission
  • Optional kits bundling strobe, sync cord, and ball arm are available
  • In addition to sync cord connector, housing is configured with dual fiber-optic cable ports for strobe connection via optional Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables. In this scenario, camera's flash triggers external flash units
