Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix TS7, FT7

About this Product

A full featured and durable waterproof housing for Panasonic Lumix DC-TS7 and DC-FT7 digital cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.

Advantages of the Panasonic TS7, FT7

  • Camera is waterproof to 102 ft (31m) and shockproof to 6.6 ft (2m)
  • 20.4 megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor
  • Optically stabilized 28-128mm equivalent f/3.3-5.9 lens
  • Super-bright 3" LCD display
  • 4K video at 24p or 30p plus high speed 120fps mode
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • CIPA battery life of 300 shots per charge

Superb handling

Full camera control is essential underwater. Controls are provided for all camera functions and easy to operate even when wearing gloves. The shutter lever features a sensitive and natural feeling curved design. The standard control hugs the side of the housing for comfortable use when hand holding. It can be easily extended using the optional Shutter Trigger Extension # 4077.93 to put it within easy reach when using a right-hand quick release handle.

Push buttons are made of acetal and hard anodized aluminum to reduce weight and prevent salt build-up for smooth operation with minimal maintenance. The back of the housing features laser engraved control symbols which will never fade or fall off.

The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.

Flash

Due to the position of the camera's flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water. For the best color and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fiber optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optic cords.

Wide angle, macro & filters

The design of the camera's lens and flash prevents the effective use of external filters, wide angle lenses, or macro lenses.

Confidence

The unique rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the o-ring for simple and confident assembly. We have eliminated the need for an o-ring groove or channel which can trap sand, dirt, or debris. Two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps are simple to use and virtually unbreakable. The clear back allows you to see the o-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes.

Vacuum Testing

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 vacuum kit allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to check for leaks prior to entering the water.

Drawing a vacuum on the system also provides extra security at the surface of the water, especially important when using the housing in rough surf.

Durability and corrosion free performance

Our white ABS-PC blend housing 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 color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

Made in USA

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit and function. Every unit is water pressure tested to 200 feet (60m). We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the best reputation for service within the dive industry.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock.

If it is, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

How do you ship my orders?

CourierPost aims for next day delivery nationwide between major towns and cities in the North Island. South Island delivery can take two days.
