Ikelite 6171.11 Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix LX100, LX100 II, Leica D-LUX Type 109
The Ikelite 6171.11 Underwater Housings a full featured and durable underwater housing for Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100, DC-LX100 II and Leica D-LUX Type 109 digital cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
This compact and lightweight housing provide all important functions of the Panasonic Lumix LX100, LX100 II, or Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) up to depths of 200 feet (60m). Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions including the rear dial and custom function controls. Rear controls are marked with easy-to-see laser engraved symbols which never fade or fall off. 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.
An integrated TTL circuit is fine-tuned to the camera’s flash exposure protocol for the most accurate exposure possible. The circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance and no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera’s built-in control. At this time, only Ikelite DS strobes are capable of powering the circuitry. SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes attached via electrical sync cord will still enjoy fast recycle times and improved battery life, but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
This housing provides a direct electrical connection to the camera’s external flash hot shoe. Cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a lightbulb. The threaded fit prevents accidental detachment during use. The bulkhead connection has been moved to the top of the housing to keep cords out of your way and reduce strain on the cord ends. A variety of sync cord terminations are available for Ikelite, SEA&SEA, INON, or Nikonos strobes for ultimate versatility.
The LX100 does not feature a built-in flash. An external strobe must be connected via electrical sync cord.
An optional vacuum system allows you to pressurize the housing to check for major leaks prior to entering the water. A 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is included on the side of the housing for the easy installation of an optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. Combined with a full view of the camera and o-ring seal through the back of the housing, there is no greater assurance that your gear will be safe. Our signature open-groove design suspends the rear o-ring in a natural position that is easier to maintain and more reliable than forcing the o-ring into a channel.
The new 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.
