Ikelite 6170.50 Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix ZS50 TZ70
The Ikelite 6170.50 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Panasonic Lumix ZS50 and TZ70 digital cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
There’s no greater assurance than being able to see the o-ring seal. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions.
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera’s built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter – or “snow” – from your underwater images.
The housing port is designed to accept color filter, wide angle, and macro options for 3.9-inch diameter ports. Light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water. A subject will look darker, less colorful and somewhat grainy when viewed through even a few feet of water. The addition of a compatible wide angle accessory expands the camera’s field of view underwater, providing the opportunity to get as close as possible to the subject and reduce the amount of water light passes through. The results speak for themselves – photos with the best color, exposure and clarity possible.
