Building on its tremendously popular LX series, the LX100 combines a super fast lens with a massive micro four-thirds size sensor with 1.5x the effective size as compared to the Canon PowerShot G7 X or Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark III. It also sports a TTL flash hot shoe, which means you don't have to rely on the camera's built-in flash for automatic strobe exposure. Take more shots, faster.

The LX100 isn't just great for stills. Panasonic continues to lead the way in high definition video by offering 4K resolution at 30p and 24. Combine this with the built-in time-lapse function and you have all the tools you need to put together a fantastic video in, under, and around the water. Time-lapse is used all over broadcast media to add a sense of scene to video transitions. You know those shots where the clouds are moving and the sun sets in just a few seconds? That's time-lapse and all you need is a tripod and the LX100!

TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the strobe interprets information from the camera to vary flash duration and properly expose an image. Only Ikelite supports true Panasonic TTL flash protocol with a direct connection to the camera's built-in flash hot shoe.

Direct TTL communications provides numerous advantages over optical, fiber optic, or LED triggered systems including:

  • More precise exposure
  • Faster recycle times
  • Quicker shutter response
  • Rapid fire flash capabilities
  • Longer battery life
  • More great shots of any subject
 
 

The Ikelite-style electrical bulkhead is widely recognized as the most reliable waterproof strobe sync connection available. In order to communicate with the camera, compatible Ikelite DS strobes must be connected to the housing's electrical bulkhead using a single or dual TTL sync cord.

Non-Ikelite strobes may be connected to this bulkhead using a compatible sync cord, however the housing's circuitry will not receive power and the strobes will operate in manual exposure modes only.

Whether in TTL or manual exposure, use of an electrical sync cord eliminates the issues of signal interference, inconsistent exposure due to weak fiber optic transmission, and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off. Sync cords are comparably priced to fiber optic cords and are equally durable.
