Product Highlights
  • 4-Point Port Locking System
  • 1/4-20 Accessory Mount Above Port
  • Super-Eye Magnifier for Easy Viewing
  • iTTL Compatible w/ Ikelite Strobes
  • Rated up to 200'

This Ikelite 6812.7 iTTL Underwater Housing for the Nikon D700 allows iTTL operation with the Ikelite DS digital SubStrobes when connected to the housing's bulkhead by a sync cord. A large dial on the back of the housing puts precise exposure control right at your fingertips. The top (yellow) half of the exposure dial provides four 1/3 f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to be added to or subtracted from any compensation entered into the camera. The bottom (black) half of the dial provides seven manual power settings in half-stop increments. Other manufacturers' strobes can be used, but they cannot provide iTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing.

Controls are provided for every camera function except focus selector lock, metering selector, diopter adjustment control, and flash pop-up button. "Stay depressed" control operates the White Balance, ISO and Dual functions on top left of camera body. AE/AF lock button can be activated with your thumb while holding the handle.

The auto focus system on the camera is very good, but does require a certain amount of light and contrast. When shooting under ledges, on night dives, or inside caves and wrecks a focus light will allow the camera to focus faster. The housing features a 1/4-20 threaded mounting socket in the center of the housing above the lens port. This is the perfect place to attach a focus light or other accessories.

The housing size and weight provides neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater. Camera installation is quick and simple. The dependable controls are conveniently placed at your fingertips and kept water tight with Ikelite's pioneered Quad-ring seal glands, one of the most reliable methods for sealing controls.

The Ikelite Super-Eye magnifier provided with the housing offers enhanced viewing while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. A stay-depressed control unlocks the mode wheel for access of the live preview feature.

An assortment of interchangeable lens ports allows use of most macro, wide-angle, and zoom lenses. Ikelite uses a simple and reliable 4-point locking system to attach lens ports to the housing. This fail-safe assembly consists of one sliding lock in each corner around the opening that accepts the port.

A lens port is required to match specific lens on SLR camera. Please also note that some zoom lenses might require addition of a Close-Up #4 diopter filter on the lens.

      Comments about Ikelite 6812.7 iTTL Underwater Housing for Nikon D700:

      I am an underwater photographer and trainer. I have used this housing quite a bit now and LOVE IT!! The TTL system is far better than any other housings out there... My only concern was the port fits a little loosely until under pressure.
