--Product features--
    The 「M67 Lens Adapter Base」 is a dedicated accessory to attach INON 『M67 Mount Series』 close-up lens「UCL-330」「UCL-165 M67」 on a marine case/water-proof protector which is not compatible with existing M67 Mount Base (*2)(*3)

    The component Base Plate is designed based on base shape of compatible marine case/water-proof protector to fit securely on it without rattle. This product directly accepts dual functional product 「Grip Base D4」or 「Grip Base DIII」 as a grip and lighting arm enabling to add compatible strobe/LED flashlight together with various lighting arm product to support simple/compact and even friendly upgrade to multi lighting system.

    The Lens Adapter Unit is mounted on the compatible marine case/water-proof protector at lens pot with pressure molding and supplied Supporting Screws to reliably hold compatible close-up lens. The Lens Adapter Unit can be separated with combined attachment lens by simply loosening the Supporting Screws.

    (*1)
    Contact Panasonic Corporation for detail of camera/marine case. INON Inc. confirms product compatibility based on a camera/housing available in Japan.

    (*2)
    This product does not support a wide conversion lens due to camera master lens specification.

    (*3)
    When using a close-up lens on this product underwater, significant vignetting will be observed at zoom wide end. Zoom towards to telephoto side little bit to avoid vignetting

    (*4)
    On land, slight vignetting on image corners at zoom wide end even without a close-up lens. Crop an image or use without the lens adapter unit.

    (*5)
    When using 「DMW-MCTZ10 / LUMIX DMC-TZ10」, 「DMW-MCTZ7 / LUMIX DMC-TZ7」or「DMW-MCTZ5 / LUMIX DMC-TZ5」only with the M67 Lens Adapter Base, the camera system will have great buoyancy. Adjust total underwater weight by using other accessories to get appropriate underwater weight to avoid accidental rapid ascent.
