Ikelite 6961.07 200DLM/B Underwater TTL Housing for Panasonic Lumix G7 Mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds Cameras
The Ikelite 6961.07 200DLM/B Underwater TTL Housing is a full featured and durable waterproof housing for Panasonic Lumix G7 mirrorless micro four-thirds cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
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 Panasonic Lumix G7 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 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, and 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.
Due to its proximity to the lens, the camera’s flash is not suitable for lighting a subject underwater. In order to provide the most compact and lightweight housing possible for this camera, the built-in flash is not able to be elevated or used inside of the housing. Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must have the capability to attach an electrical sync cord in order to be used with this housing.
This housing accepts a variety of ports to accommodate all of the most popular zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses. The custom optical grade acrylic domes components provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight and cost.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DLM Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
The new ABS-PC blend provides strength and corrosion free performance 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.
