Product Overview

A professional grade, compactwaterproof housing forPanasonic Lumix DC-GX9mirrorless micro four-thirds cameras. Perfect for any application in or around the water from scuba to surf to pool. ThePanasonic Lumix DC-GX9is a solid and capable compactinterchangeable lens camera. Customizable controls, a TTL flash hot shoe, and in-body 5-axis image stabilization make it a good choice for underwater use. TheGX9features a 20MP CMOS sensor, 4K/UHD video at 24p and 30p, and a 121-point contrast-detect AF system.Note: This housing requires the addition of a compatible DLM Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens port and camera not included.

True TTL Exposure:Proper strobe exposure is the #1 important contributor to sharp & colorful underwater photos, particularly below 30' (10 meters).This is the only housing to include an integrated TTL circuit fine-tuned to the Panasonic GX9 flash exposure protocol for the fastest & most accurate exposure possible. TTLcommunication by electrical sync cord improves camera battery life & recycle time.The TTL circuit is powered by the strobe for zero maintenance & no batteries to change. Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using the camera's built-in control. Only Ikelite DS strobes can power the TTL circuitry. Non-Ikelite strobes featuring an electrical bulkhead may be attached by sync cordbut must be used in manual exposure modes only.

Built-In Flash:The camera's built-in flash may be used to trigger external fiber optic strobes. 2-fiber optic ports are provided on top of housing for attachment of compatible fiber optic cords.

Constant-On Lighting:A bright constant-on video light can be used instead of or in addition to a flash. Constant-on lights do provide added versatility because they can be used for focus assist & for improved colors when shooting video. Light is absorbed as it travels through even short distances underwater, making colors appear dull or monochromatic. To preserve the natural colors of your subject, it's important to stay within arm's reach away.

Lens Support:High quality yet affordable optics are available for an extensive range of micro four-thirds lenses from wide angle fisheye to macro.The DLM port system is designed to be tough enough for heavy surf & without complex mechanisms. Ikelite's custom optical grade acrylic domes provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight & cost. Glass flat ports are available for macro lenses. A compatible lens port is required for waterproof use.

Controls and Ergonomics:A trigger-type shutter lever control is designed for optimal sensitivity & natural motion when shooting underwater. The standard control hugs the side of the housing for comfortable use when hand holding. Soft-touch knobs are easy to grip with or without gloves on & provide quick access to important controlsincluding front & rear dials & the mode control.Hard anodized aluminum push buttonsare extremely lightweight & resistant to salt build-up & corrosion. The back of the housing features laser engraved control symbols which will never fade or fall off.

Camera Installation:The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation/removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera & 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.

Accessory Mounting:Two 1/4-20 threaded mounting points are included on the bottom of the housing for the attachment of a tray & handle grips. Handles provide improved ergonomics underwater and are the foundation for your lighting mounts. If you're shooting with two strobe or lighting arms, then a top handle can be added. Top handles are available in aCable Grip# 4080.07 or Aluminum Top Handle # 4080.08. The rigid aluminum version provides additional mounting points for lighting and accessories.

Sealing and Testing:There is no greater assurance than being able to see your camera and O-ring seal through the back of the housing. Ikelite 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. Once the housing is closed you can see the O-ring form a solid, waterproof seal. 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 hand pump with gauge allows you to draw a vacuum onthe housing to simulate water pressure and check forleaks prior to entering the water. Every unit is water pressure tested to 200' (60 meters) before it leaves Ikelite's facility in Indianapolis.

Durability andCorrosion Free Performance: A customABS-Polycarbonate blend housing provides strength and performance year after year with minimal maintenance. The ABS-Polycarbonate material is fundamentally corrosion-proof and considerably lighter than aluminum. 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. They use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Ikelite housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit and function. Ikelite backs their products with over 50 years of experience and the best reputation for service within the dive industry.

ThePanasonic Lumix DC-GX9camera is not compatiblewith any other Ikelite housing models.This housing is only compatible with the Panasonic DC- GX9K, DC-GX9M and DC-GX9 cameras as shipped by the manufacturer.

The Panasonic DMW-HGR2 Ergonomic Hand Grip is not usable in this installation. This housing has not been tested with the optional Panasonic DMW-EC5 Eyecup.

(1225 g), is slightly negativelybuoyancy in fresh water (actual buoyancy varies depending on choice of lens and port) and has two 1/4-20 thread tray mounting with 3" (76mm) spacing.
