Ikelite 6170.10 Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix ZS100, TZ100, TZ101
The Ikelite 6170.10 Underwater Housing is a full featured and durable underwater housing for Panasonic Lumix ZS100, TZ100, and TZ101 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
The zoom range of this camera is limited while inside of the housing in order to provide the best underwater imaging possible. The camera cannot be zoomed beyond 200mm inside of the housing.
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.
The glass lens port has been optimized for a wide angle to macro range of 25-200mm. This zoom range is ideal for use in the water with or without optional accessories. The camera cannot be zoomed beyond 200mm while installed in the housing with the standard lens port.
A press-fit Macro Adapter (sold separately) is available for the attachment of 67mm threaded accessory macro lenses. We recommend a macro lens which is designed for underwater use like those from Epoque, INON, Subsee, Nauticam, and other manufacturers. The adapter should not be used with 67mm threaded wide angle lenses. The wide angle lens would be too far away from the camera’s lens to provide an improved image.
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.
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.
