Panasonic's Lumix DMC-GF1 is one of the company's hottest cameras right now being a well-reviewed interchangeable lens model. INON has shown some interest in the GF1 as well with an intense-looking waterproof casing.

The aluminum alloy case on the INON X-2 allows for the GF1 to dive up to 75 meters (246 feet) deep. It's paired with dual underwater-ready lights, which will be extremely necessary if you decide to plunge that far below. With that crazy design, the X-2 looks more like some sort of a flying droid from Star Wars, but it also looks like it would do its job well.

If you're a photographer deeply interested in underwater shooting, then this is the accessory for you - if you can afford it. Available in black or white, the center casing costs ¥186,900 ($2,173) and each side grip runs for ¥10,000 yen ($116).
