21 February 2017: Ikelite 200DL Housing for Panasonic Lumix GH5

Ikelite is pleased to announce its new Dry Lock (DL200) housing 71305 for the highly anticipated Panasonic GH5 mirrorless micro four-thirds camera. Vacuum valve included. TTL circuitry sold separately. (This housing may be converted to the Four Lock (FL) port system for legacy users.)

Product Details

  • 200' (60m) depth rating
  • Perfect for any wet environment including surf, dive, and pool use
  • Supremely functional for maximum creative control—access is provided for all important camera functions
  • The NEW Dry Lock (DL) Port System gives added security at the surface of the water and accommodates large diameter lenses
  • Extra-large, soft touch zoom knob; Zoom is accessible for many lenses using our unique universal zoom gear system

Vacuum valve included; Test your system after assembly prior to entering the water; Pump sold separately

Included Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hotshoe for reliable electrical triggering of underwater strobes; Optional TTL circuitry provides automatic exposure with compatible Ikelite DS strobes

Control symbols are laser etched into the back and will never fade or rub off

Quick install camera mount plate does not need to be removed for battery or memory card access

One spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port locations on the front of the housing for the addition of optional accessories

Includes a balanced aluminum base with left-hand quick release handle; Right-hand handle sold separately

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

Strobe Options

TTL Exposure

Install optional Panasonic TTL Kit # 46031 for automatic TTL exposure with compatible Ikelite DS-model Strobes. Ikelite DS-model strobes may be used with this system without the Panasonic TTL Kit installed, but will not provide TTL exposure.

Non-Ikelite Strobes

SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes with an electrical connection can be triggered in manual exposure modes using an electrical sync cord. Strobes without an electrical sync cord connection cannot be attached to this system unless slaved off of a hard-wired strobe.

Ikelite Non-Digital Strobes

Older non-digital strobes featuring an ICS-5 electrical sync cord bulkhead can be used with this system in manual exposure modes.

Fiber Optic

Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.

Remote Triggering

Strobes with remote slave capabilities may be triggered off of a flash attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering using the Optical Slave Converter Product number 4403 or the Water Wizard system (manufactured and sold by Aquatica).
