Ikelite 6961.09 200DLM/B Underwater TTL Housing for Panasonic Lumix GX9 Mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds Cameras
The Ikelite 6961.09 200DLM/B Underwater TTL Housing is a professional grade, compact waterproof housing for Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9 mirrorless micro four-thirds cameras. Perfect for any application in or around the water from scuba to surf to pool.
This is the only housing to include an integrated TTL circuit fine-tuned to the Panasonic GX9 flash exposure protocol for the fastest and most accurate exposure possible. TTL communication by electrical sync cord improves camera battery life and recycle time. You get many times more strobe-lit shots when you need them. The TTL 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 TTL circuitry. Non-Ikelite strobes featuring an electrical bulkhead may be attached by sync cord but must be used in manual exposure modes only.
The camera’s built-in flash may be used to trigger external fiber optic strobes. Two fiber optic ports are provided on the top of the housing for attachment of compatible fiber optic cords. The built-in flash is not suitable for lighting a subject underwater.
High quality yet affordable optics are available for an extensive range of micro four-thirds lenses from wide angle fisheye to macro. The optical grade acrylic domes provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the weight and cost. Glass flat ports are available for macro lenses.
The DLM port system is designed to be tough enough for heavy surf and to provide reliability in remote locations. The lens port attaches without twisting, threading, or complex mechanisms.
This housing also requires a compatible lens port. This is not included in the scope of delivery.
A custom ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and 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 color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. A hand pump with gauge allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to simulate water pressure and check for leaks prior to entering the water.
