Ikelite Announces Housing Compatibility with New Panasonic LX100 Mark II
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 31, 2018 @ 05:00 AM (EST)

If you got excited about the jump in sensor resolution of the new Panasonic LX100 II—from 12.8MP to 17MP—you’ve now got another reason to rejoice: Ikelite has confirmed that its housing for the LX100 Mark I is compatible with the new version of the camera as well.

Ikelite’s housing, which is priced at $849, is depth-rated to 200 feet, provides access to all important camera controls (except that “superfluous” new touchscreen), and features integrated TTL circuitry for automatic exposure with compatible Ikelite DS strobes. Even Trump can celebrate: It’s made in the USA.

See the press release below for more details.


Underwater TTL Housing for Panasonic DC-LX100 II Digital Camera

Panasonic shooters will be happy to know that the new Panasonic DC-LX100 II digital camera is fully functional in the existing Ikelite underwater housing for the original Panasonic LX100.

The LX100 II camera supports true TTL communication with compatible Ikelite DS strobes when attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Electrical TTL allows you to shoot more frames per second, improves battery life, and provides the most accurate strobe exposure for most settings.

  • Depth rated to 200 feet (60m)
  • Integrated TTL circuitry
  • Ergonomic access to important camera functions
  • Optional vacuum system
  • Full view of the camera and o-ring seal through the back of the housing
