Shown with lens port (not included). A lens port must be purchased separately for waterproof operation.
This housing is only compatible with the Panasonic Lumix GH5 Mirrorless Camera as shipped by the manufacturer. Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, battery grips, eyepieces, LCD covers, or other accessories.
Differences in lens and control placement prevent other DSLR models from being used in this housing. We are not aware of any other models which may be used in or adapted to this particular housing.
The GH5 camera body is not compatible in older housings for Panasonic Lumix GH3/GH4 cameras.
This housing comes standard with the new Dry Lock (DL) port mount. Ports designed for our Four Lock (FL) or Two Lock DSLR housings are not compatible with this system. This housing can be converted by the user to the FL system by removing the DL mount and adding four # 9072.24 port locks.
The DL mount is not designed to be removed and replaced repeatedly. Conversion back to the DL system at a later time requires return of the housing to Ikelite for re-installation and water pressure testing.
DL ports are considerably lighter weight than the comparable FL versions and support a more robust mount. The DL system is recommended for surf photography.
Install optional Panasonic TTL Kit # 46031 for automatic TTL exposure with compatible Ikelite DS-model Strobes. Ikelite DS-model strobes may be used with this system without the Panasonic TTL Kit installed, but will not provide TTL exposure.
SEA&SEA, INON, and Nikonos strobes with an electrical connection can be triggered in manual exposure modes using an electrical sync cord. Strobes without an electrical sync cord connection cannot be attached to this system unless slaved off of a hard-wired strobe.
Older non-digital strobes featuring an ICS-5 electrical sync cord bulkhead can be used with this system in manual exposure modes.
Fiber optic only strobes are not compatible with this installation. An external strobe must be connected by electrical sync cord.
Strobes with remote slave capabilities may be triggered off of a flash attached to the housing by electrical sync cord. Ikelite DS strobes support remote triggering using the Optical Slave Converter Product number 4403 or the Water Wizard system (manufactured and sold by Aquatica).
