Ikelite 6170.70 Underwater Housing for
Panasonic Lumix ZS70, ZS80, TZ90, TZ95
The Ikelite 6170.70 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70, DC-ZS80, DC-TZ90, and DC-TZ95 digital cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions. Soft-touch knobs are easy to grip with or without gloves on and provide quick access to important controls including front and rear dials and the mode control. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off.
A trigger-type shutter lever control is designed for optimal sensitivity and a natural motion when shooting underwater. The standard control hugs the side of the housing for comfortable use when hand holding. The shutter trigger may be easily extended using the optional Shutter Trigger Extension # 4077.93 for more comfortable reach when using a handle grip.
The front-loading camera mounting system makes installation and removal a breeze. The camera mounting plate allows ready access to the battery and memory card, and features a standard 1/4-20 mounting point for attachment to a tripod topside.
The location of the camera’s flash in relation to the lens makes it unusable for lighting your subject underwater. However, the camera’s flash may be used to trigger an external strobe. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optically triggered underwater strobes.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded Accessory Port on the side of the housing is the perfect location for the installation of an optional vacuum valve. The Vacuum Kit # 47012 allows you to pull a vacuum on the housing to simulate pressure at depth and check for leaks prior to entering the water.
The ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance year after year with minimal maintenance. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light gray color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

Housings produced before June 1, 2019 (serial number below 71600) require the addition of a washer to the mode dial control shaft for use with the newer DC-ZS80 and DC-TZ95 cameras. This washer is available as the Update Kit Panasonic ZS80, TZ95 # 9295.07.
