Ikelite Panasonic Lumix ZS60 and TZ80 Underwater Housing
Ikelite Underwater Housing for Panasonic Lumix ZS60 and TZ80 Cameras
This compact and lightweight housing provides full operation of Panasonic Lumix ZS60 and TZ80 cameras up to depths of 200 feet (60m).
Durability and corrosion free performance
Ikelite's brand 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.
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.
Large, easy-to-reach controls are provided for all camera functions including the rear dial and custom function controls. Control functions are placed in a similar configuration to the camera's layout for the most natural operation taking advantage of the muscle memory you've already developed in surface use. 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.
Color correction and external lighting
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.
Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray and handle system. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts.
Wide angle, macro, and color filters
The housing provides full access to the camera's zoom range. The design of this camera's lens limits the addition of external wide angle accessories. For wide angle photography, we recommend the WD-4 Wide Angle Dome which restores the camera's true angle of coverage and clarity underwater. Unlike a wet lens, the WD-4 is super sharp edge-to-edge, free of dark shadows in the corners of the image, and lightweight for travel. The WD-4 can be removed and replaced underwater so that you can shoot wide angle and macro on the same dive.
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 cannot be used with 67mm threaded wide angle lenses.
