Excellent Underwater Housing

GoLeuk, B&H Photo
10 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Great underwater housing for the DMC-ZS20 at a good price. The O-rings were easy to install and kept the camera totally dry. The camera optics and zoom worked exceptionally well with the case. The case is a bit bulkier than similar Olympus models, but did not significantly impact its ease of use. Great resulting pictures..!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Functional, Good Depth Range, Water-tight Seals

Beautifully designed case

  • Excerpt: Haven't used this yet so don't know acgtual underwater performance. But the engineering in this is incredible. This is a serious case that allowsaccess to all functions. You have to take of the hand strap which is a pain. My only concern is that they rely on a single o-ring to seal the case and that o-ring has to be imaculately clean and greased after each use. The case itself seems very robust. Yhe waterproofing not so much. I can see why it is expensive.
  • Pros: Strong Construction

So easy to use!

  • Excerpt: I bought this to use on my first scuba diving trip. The instructions were very easy to prep this case for underwater use. The silicone packet removed all moisture from the inside of the case and I was able to take very clear pictures at 20 meters. The controls are suprisingly easy to manipulate underwater. I am really glad I bought this and would highly recommend purchasing it.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution

Panasonic underwater housing

scorman, Adorama
5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: construction is adequate, not nearly as substantial as an Ikelite, but at half the price and smaller in size, should perform well for many years. Easy to insert/remove camera and easy to view/maintain main seal. In use, not good for snorkeling as viewfinder almost impossible to view with sun over shoulder.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Small / Compact

Great price for an underwater enclosure!

28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Rated for 130', this enclosure keeps my camera dry anywhere I want to dive. It allows access to all of the camera's functions. The flash on the panasonic zs19 is a little weak, and I don't know if you can add an external flash, but for the price, they make a great underwater combo.

great value for the price

  • Excerpt: the housing is very easy to use. you can operate all buttons while the camera is in the housing. It comes with a spare o-ring and a couple of silica gel pads to avoid fogging of the lens. Moreover, it has a removable flash diffusor. The only thing that you might need to buy in addition is a red filter. I can fully recommend the housing!

Amazing Underwater Photos and Videos

FarPointDive, B&H Photo
27 May 2013
  • Excerpt: I've been an underwater photographer now for 30 years and have used a variety of equipment over the years, most of which were large and expensive. On a recent trip, we purchased a Panasonic DMC-ZS20 and the DMW-MCTZ30 underwater housing for my wife to use for UW video. My large, dual strobe Sea & Sea/Canon SLR rig developed a problem when first being set up and I was forced to use the Panasonic rig as a fallback.
  • Pros: 20x Optical Zoom, Auto Focus With Zooming, Easy to Use, excellent macro, Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Loss Of Resolution W16x9, Short Battery Life

Awesome photos!

  • Excerpt: I just got certified for SCUBA diving and I used my underwater housing in my newest photographic endeavor - underwater photography. The housing is designed to work exactly the same as the Lumix camera itself, so it was very easy to learn how to use the housing. And the photos turned out great! I also used the housing to protect my camera on beach outings. It worked out very well.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact

Let the underwater photography begin!

  • Excerpt: Can't wait to go diving and use my new underwater housing for my Panasonic Lumix camera! Now I will be able to bring back more than just memories of my diving. I will have to be careful to not "flood" my Lumix camera, but the rewards will be so worth it. So now I start a new phase of my photographic life...
