Subal GH5 Underwater Housing for Panasonic GH5 Camera

Subal GH5 Underwater Housing for the Panasonic GH5 Camera

Subal for Panasonic GH5 is the latest housing from their line. Lightweight, with full camera control, very ergonomic and easy for using. This housing is made from a solid block of aluminum and hand assembled with the same precision and quality that Subal has had for more than 50 years. As this camera is one of the top models in the world at this moment - especially for video, we made our design and size to be very compact for travelers and also with a triple layer of finish for maximum protection. The Subal GH5 housing comes with a new locking latch system and improved buttons.

The GH5 housing provides access to all the functions of the Panasonic Lumix GH5 including Live View and Info. The ergonomic SUBAL GH5 housing design and arrangement of all key controls allows easy camera operation without letting go of the grip. The camera is fitted on a special cradle which enables a precise and faster, more secure mounting. A 4mm O-ring and the SUBAL Quick-Lock closure system prevents accidental crushing of the O-ring and ensures maximum safety. Threaded holes at the base allow the attachment of a tray. Focusing lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe. The monitor window provides a glare-free and high-contrast view of the camera monitor. Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual high-quality that is common to all SUBAL products. SUBAL offers for this housing model the slim standard viewfinder reduces the viewfinder image so that it can seen fully despite wearing a dive mask.


The GH5 SUBAL Housing is milled from a solid block of aluminum. This prevents unwanted air pockets and ensures absolute tightness. All housing parts and accessories are made of this same alloy, which is characterized by a high degree of seawater resistance. Additional heat treatment increases strength and hardness by about 30% and reduces the inevitable underwater deformations due to depth. Guaranteed are shafts, screws, and many other parts made of high-alloy nickel-chromium coated steel. Only high-quality engineering plastics are used - for the best durability and longevity.

Surface Coating

You want to have long-term fun with your SUBAL housing and we ensure that it is built for maximum durability:  “hard-coating” produces wear and scratch resistance plus corrosion resistance in all aluminum parts to a superior level through a tough protective layer (up to 10 times that of an anodic coating). As additional wear-protection we add a high-quality, multi-layer powder coating.


The ergonomic placement of all important controls provides convenient and comfortable handling of the camera functions.

All functions of the camera can be operated. In particular: main switch/backlight, shutter, zoom (manual focus), front and rear main dial, lens release, focus mode (M-S-C), AF mode, metering, AF-lock, AF-ON, port-lock, photo/video switching.
