DESCRIPTION


Ikelite Underwater Housing for Panasonic LUMIX TS5, TS6, FT5, FT6 Compact Camera

 

The Panasonic LUMIX TS6 and FT6 cameras may also be used in the previous model housing built for the Panasonic LUMIX TS5 and FT5 cameras, product number 6270.05. However, very minor vignetting (dark shadows in the corners of the images) will be present. The lens port of this housing has been modified to be free of vignetting with both older and newer camera models.

This newer housing also features built-in fiber optic ports for the attachment of fiber optic strobes. Control locations are unchanged between the two housing models.

Product Details

Dive into underwater photography with this compact and easy to use system. Durable clear polycarbonate construction provides a unique view of the camera to ensure correct waterproof installation and confidence underwater. The camera installs with drop-in loading for quick and easy set up. Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal. Large, ergonomic controls provide access to all important camera functions.

The nature of this camera's lens prevents the effective use of external wide angle lenses.

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. Ikelite uses locally sourced, top-grade materials. Ikelite housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. Ikelite backs their products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

Flash

An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter - or "snow" - from your underwater images.

The optional AF35 strobe triggers and provides automatic TTL exposure by watching the camera's built-in flash, without the need of fiber optic cords or sensors. Alternatively, two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords.
