Ikelite 6171.01 overview

  • 1Description

You can capture brilliant images of coral reefs, whale sharks, and more at depths as great as 200', thanks to Ikelite's Underwater Housing for the Panasonic LUMIX LX10 or LX15 Digital Camera. Dual fiber-optic ports enable the attachment of optional external strobes via cables. Mechanical push-buttons, dials, and a lever afford access to all camera functions except for the flash-open lever; however, the flash may be used inside the housing to trigger external strobes via the fiber-optic connection.

A flat glass port with a 3.0" diameter accommodates and protects the camera's lens, and features 67mm threads for attaching external wide-angle and macro wet lenses or color-correction filters. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic blend, which is white on the front, top, sides, and bottom, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and camera. An optional aluminum tray with a quick-release grip or two will afford improved balance and handling, while offering a way to attach optional lighting arms.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Made from a durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic blend
  • White on the front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep camera cool when shooting on or above water's surface
  • Clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and camera
  • Two double-passivated, stainless steel locking latches are virtually unbreakable and make it easy to open and close the housing
  • Rear O-ring seal design and placement prevent accidental twisting or stretching, and eliminate the need for a groove that can trap sand, dirt, or debris
  • 1/2-20 threaded accessory port on the side of the housing allows for the easy installation of an optional Vacuum Kit (#47012), which will allow you to confirm the integrity of the watertight seal before diving
  • Camera is installed and removed through the front of the housing
  • Mounting plate allows for secure camera placement, and does not need to be removed for you to access the battery compartment or memory card slot
  • Mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole for connection to a tripod
Controls and Handling
  • Mechanical push-buttons, dials, and a lever afford access to all camera functions except for the flash-open lever
  • Camera's flash may be used inside the housing to trigger external strobes via fiber-optic cables
  • Shutter lever features Ikelite's updated design, which has made it more sensitive and ergonomic than the levers on many previous housings
  • Optional Shutter Trigger Extension (#4077.93) can be added on to allow for easy shutter activation without removing your hand from a grip
  • Redesigned push-buttons are even lighter in weight than the previously existing ones, and are also less prone to salt buildup
  • Laser-engraved control symbols on the back of the housing won't come off or fade with time
Lens Port
  • Built-in glass port with a flat front element and 3.0" diameter accommodates and protects the camera's lens
  • Features 67mm threads for attaching external wide-angle and macro wet lenses or color-correction filters
  • Wide-angle lenses increase your angle of coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame
  • Macro lenses enable extreme close-ups with great clarity and detail, so you can fill the whole frame with a tiny sea creature
  • Both types of accessory conversion lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, resulting in better image quality
  • Ikelite WD-3 Wide-Angle Dome provides mid-range coverage with no vignetting
  • Ikelite W-30, INON UWL-H100, and other 67mm wide-angle options offer wider coverage, but not without a little vignetting and edge distortion
  • By using a smaller aperture, zooming in slightly, and/or cropping in post-production, vignetting and distortion can be reduced or eliminated
  • Available macro lenses include those from INON, Epoque, and other brands
  • When not using an external strobe, attach an optional, external color-correction filter for blue or green water to your port, in order to restore hues that are absorbed beneath the surface
  • 3.0" filters can be pressed directly onto the port; larger 3.6" size may be required when fitting filters onto wide-angle wet lenses
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Camera's built-in flash is not suitable for illuminating shots underwater, but can be used to trigger optional external strobes that have greater range, coverage, power, and color-correcting capability
  • Dual fiber-optic ports enable direct connection to many strobes, and will allow for the use of Ikelite DS strobes via the Fiber-Optic Converter (#4401.1) and Fiber-Optic Cord (#4501)
  • Compatible with the following additional cables: INON Optical D Cable with "non-wireless type" L-connector, Sea & Sea L-type F.O. cable (#50107), Sea & Sea F.O. Cable II (#50128), Olympus UW F.O. Cable (PTCB-E02), Nauticam-to-INON Optical Fiber Cable (#26211), Nauticam-to-Sea & Sea Optical Fiber Cable (#26212)
