Ikelite’s 200DL Underwater Housing for Panasonic GH6 Camera Now Available


Ikelite has unveiled its 200DL underwater housing for those lucky few who can get their hands on Panasonic’s latest camera, the Lumix GH6 Mirrorless Micro Four-Thirds.

The housing features Ikelite’s “Dry Lock” (DL) port system. “Dry Lock” refers to the placement of the o-ring on the outside of the port mount. This improves visibility and reduces the chances of water dropping onto your precious camera sensor, according to Ikelite. A system of extensions can accommodate a huge variety of lenses with ease.

(Note that the housing requires the addition of a compatible DL lens port which is sold separately.)

The housing’s rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of the o-ring for simple and confident assembly, according to Ikelite. Additionally, it also sports three double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps. The clear back allows you to see the o-ring form a solid, watertight seal as it closes, the company says.

The 200DL underwater housing retails for US$1,595/~€1,448, and you can find more information at
