A Housing for Panasonic LUMIX GX9
The Panasonic LUMIX DC-GX9 is a micro four-thirds mirrorless camera with 20.3 megapixel Digital Live MOS sensor offering superior features including proven 4K video, 5-axis in-body and 2-axis in-lens dual I.S. image stabilization, ultra-high sensitivity capability ISO25600, flash sync speed 1/200 in its solid square compact body at budget conscious pricing range. The LUMIX DC-GX9 is an ideal camera for underwater imaging as camera offers wide variety of interchangeable lenses including a fisheye lens, macro lens and so on to capture beauty of underwater world.
Hybrid Vacuum Leak Sensor
INON’s unique Vacuum Leak Sensor is equipped as standard feature to check proper sealing of housing by vacuum sensor monitoring negative air pressure inside of the housing and combined leak detector warns you accidental flooding underwater by LED blinks and beeps. The pressure sensor is controlled by specific program offering different sensitivity between vacuum check stage and during diving (PAT. P).
When monitoring sealing of closed housing, the pressure sensor is set in ultrasensitive mode to detect even faint air leakage within amazingly short period (0.5 to 5 minutes). During diving, the pressure sensor automatically set to low sensitivity mode to provide proper monitoring without malfunctioning likely happened when pressure changes by varied ambient temperature.
Breakthrough flawless system to check housing leakage in 5 minutes.
Compact Body Size W168 x H116 x D80mm/W6.6 x 4.6 x 3.1 inch
The INON X-2 for GX9 VC is designed compact as well not to sacrifice compact body size of camera itself. Despite of compact body, the housing offers same level of reliable waterproof property and durability as same as proven X-2 housing series.
The newly designed lock levers assure easy and faultless opening/closure of the housing without increasing body size.
Installing a camera is easily and securely led by proven 3-dimension guiding system originally developed for the legend X-1 housing where all you need is just putting camera inside of the housing without any optional adapter on the camera. Also shallow front body helps to hand on a camera during installation/removal of the camera without feeling stress.
Robust Corrosion Resistance Cast Aluminum Body
The housing body is made from lightweight yet durable corrosion resistance aluminum alloy combined machined front body and ultraprecise cast manufactured rear body. Using different manufacturing techniques have acquired reliability, durability and controllability even in severe underwater to fuse design, weight and durability.
Intuitive Control Layout
The Panasonic LUMIX GX-9 has independent dials to control aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation values instantly. The X-2 for GX9 VC is designed to have those dials as well and precisely locate those dials so that all dials are accessible and easily controlled as like controlling the camera on land with holding the housing.
Together with large yet light touch shutter lever, these controls comfortably support necessary operation underwater.
Leak Detector with Red LED and Beep
As standard feature, a leak detector is equipped with the housing to alert accidental flooding. The leak detector warns you accidental flooding with red LED on the right bottom corner of the rear body with beeps.
Optional vacuum leak detector will be available to check if the housing has been closed properly to keep waterproof property.
New MRS Port to Control by Magnet Attraction
Two macro lenses LUMIX G LEICA DG MACRO-ELMAR Lens, 45mm, F2.8 ASPH., MEGA Optical I.S. and LUMIX G Macro Lens, 30mm, F2.8 ASPH., MEGA Optical I.S. are supported by INON’s unique MRS(Magnetic Rotary System) enabling manual focusing. The MRS system is further refined to use for this compact housing having less rattle providing even smoother control feeling.
