The new SEALUX CSGH5 housing made for the innovative Lumix GH5 provides perfect support for both photography and video. To support the new high resolution OLED-viewfinder of the GH5 we added the option to make use of the superb SEALUX viewfinders to this housing. The basic version of the housing comes without a viewfinder, but the SEALUX viewfinders can be added later on at any time. Now, this digital system camera with its superb operability can fully show its strengths under water, too. The new camera slide makes fitting the camera very easy. The grip fitted at the front is adjustable! We have designed the precision-fit CSGH5 housing in such a way that you can make perfect underwater use of your Lumix GH5 camera. Safety, easy key operability and all the most important functions allow you to act in a fast, effortless and focussed way, under water, too.
A special socket (optional) enables you to connect an HDMi monitor. This way, high definition image viewing in video mode is perfectly possible using the monitor. The CSGH5 housing features small dimensions. Large O-rings, double seal shafts and keys sealed even fourfold guarantee a maximum degree of safety. The camera is precision-guided on a special slide and fitted inside the front part of the housing, thereby excluding fitting errors.
The housing is made of a seawater-proof aluminium alloy. It is CNC milled out of a monoblock, anodized in black and in addition, powder coated on the outside. The housing has an M6 thread to fit, for example, a small video light (Matrix 2200 Di) or our 5” HDMI monitor on top of the housing for relaxed underwater video shoots. Minimal dimensions and weight. Excellent taring with all ports. Ports must be ordered separately. Colour: powder coated in metallic silver.
The following functions come as standard: ON-OFF, shutter release, comfortable operation of frontal control dial from the grip, rear control dial, mode selector wheel, white balance, ISO adjustment, exposure correction, video-rec, keys for playback, Fn5, Fn2, Fn3, Fn4, DSF as well as cursor and menu keys. In addition MF/AF switch, AF/AE-Lock, and the center position of the joystick. Fitted on the left you find zoom or manual focus as well as the lens release facility for changing lenses with the camera fitted inside the housing.
The grip rail is adjustable and detachable for transport. It comes with soft ergonomic rubber handles or grips and two T-pieces to accommodate two flash arms as well as with two threaded holes to attach safety holding straps.
Two spring-loaded locks with safety catches keep the housing locked with a high clamping force. Housing bayonet: The bayonet is sufficiently large to accommodate new large diameter lenses, too. This way, lenses can be changed with the camera inside the housing. The flat and wide angle ports are locked.
