The Ikelite 6270.20 ULTRAcompact Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 / FT20 Digital Camera is a clear polycarbonate waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS20 or FT20 digital camera. It has a depth rating of 200' (60 m), giving you the ability to dive down deep to capture still images and video. Buoyancy is slightly positive in freshwater.

The housing provides access to all camera functions via mechanical button controls. The camera's built-in flash is usable, as well, and both a flash diffuser and deflector are included. The diffuser softens the light of the flash to eliminate hard shadows, over-exposed subjects and backscatter. The deflector lets you bounce the flash off a surface, making the light less harsh.

Drop-in camera loading makes setup a breeze, and because the housing is clear, you can see the O-ring seal. The housing is constructed of polycarbonate, known for its strength and corrosion-resistant properties. It has an integrated flat glass port with an outer diameter of 56mm and an inner diameter of 46mm. There are no threads on the port. You can attach optional 67mm accessory wide-angle and macro lenses via the 9306.78 Adapter (not included). Moderate vignetting (shading in the corners of the frame) will occur with wide-angle lenses. Attach bayonet-style lenses using the optional 9306.85 Adapter (not included). Moderate vignetting will also occur when using wide-angle bayonet lenses. The Inon UWL-105AD and UFL-165AD lenses are not recommended for use. The WD-4 Wide-Angle Dome is not compatible with this housing. Wide-angle lenses let you get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame, while macro lenses are designed for extreme close-up shots. Both are great for underwater photography because they cut down on the distance between you and your subject, thus minimizing distortion caused by the water and giving you better clarity and color.

Optional color correction filters are available, as well (not included). Use #6441.31 for blue water or 6441.71 for green. Both are meant for use without a strobe. These filters will help restore colors that tend to get lost beneath the surface, muted into shades of blue and grey by the water.

The housing does not have a bulkhead connector for a sync cord or fiber optic cable, so optional strobes (not included) would be triggered as slaves. Light from strobes can travel farther and cover a greater area than light from a built-in flash. The optional AF35 AutoFlash (not included), an automatic optical slave strobe with exposure adjustment capabilities, is a great choice. You may also use the optional PRO-V8 LED video light, which comes in handy when shooting movies with your camera or when you need some help focusing.

For tray mounting, there is a 12-24 thread with 3" (7.6 cm) spacing on the housing. Included with the 6270.20 are a #0200.02 Vinyl Port Cover, #0321.10 Safety Lanyard, and #0184.1 Silicone Lubricant.
