The Nikon WP-N1 Waterproof Housing for Nikon 1 J1 / J2 Digital Camera is an underwater case for your Nikon 1 J1 or J2 digital camera with 10-30mm VR lens. Dive down to 131' (40 m) for great beneath-the-surface photos and videos. You can also use the housing to capture images at- or above-the-surface, such as while boating, kayaking, fishing or hanging pool-side.

The lightweight (1.7 lb / 0.8 kg) WP-N1 enables access to key camera functions via mechanical and button controls. The shutter, zoom ring, Mode dial, Multi-selector, movie recording, playback, delete and menu buttons are all easily accessible from the housing's exterior, affording you plenty of creative freedom. The WP-N1 has an integrated lens port specifically designed to accommodate the 10-30mm VR lens. A cold shoe mount on the top of the housing permits the attachment of optional accessories, such as a lighting arm.

Included with the housing are the following: A WP-O1000 O-Ring, which provides the waterproof seal, along with a WP-OR1000 O-Ring Remover for maintenance or replacement of the O-ring; a WP-IR1000 Inner-Reflection Prevention Ring to help keep unwanted reflections from appearing in your images; and a WP-AN1000 Strap, which helps ensure that your housing, with camera inside, doesn't get away from you while you're shooting around, in, or beneath the surface of the water.

Also supplied are a WP-LC1000 Front Cap, which covers the lens port when the housing is not in use, protecting the port against scratches while also preventing buildup of dust, dirt and debris; and a WP-AN2000 Front Cap Strap, which attaches the WP-LC1000 Front Cap to the housing to ensure the cap is not lost when you remove it to use the housing underwater. There is also a WP-ZG1000 Zoom Gear Sleeve, which works with the zoom gear to enable you to operate the zoom function on the 10-30mm VR lens; WP-G1000 Silicone Grease, which keeps the O-ring from drying out; and WP-S1000 Silica Gel Desiccant to remove moisture from the housing.

      Comments about WP-N1 Waterproof Housing for Nikon 1 J1 / J2 Digital Camera:

      For the price I can hardly give it a negative review, it is an amazing piece of technology. I can access all the functions I need on the camera, I cannot think of anything that is not accessible. I love my Nikon 1 J1, and with this I can take it anywhere! Maybe it's a bit bulky, but that will be an advantage under water. Now for spring! (It is -10C (-6F) here right now, and the water is very, very hard!)

        Fit and function of the WP-N1 is exactly as described. The unit comes full equipt for immediate use. Instructions are clear and there is an ample supply of disposable products to use the casing saveral times before having to repurchase seal lubricant, etc.

        Housing is sturdy and strong. Controls are very easy to use and it doesn't take very long to get the camera ready to go into the housing either. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to use their Nikon 1 J1 underwater.

        Great housing

        By Matta2309

        from Orlando

        Comments about WP-N1 Waterproof Housing for Nikon 1 J1 / J2 Digital Camera:

        I've shopped several housings for the nikon 1 line and it would make sense that the one made by nikon is the best. It took a bit of getting used to, but you can control every manual shooting feature of the J1 with this housing. The biggest thing was realizing the zoom ring that goes on the camera before putting it in the housing is super specific. It needs to be further on the lens than you think in order to allow the lens to zoom smoothly in the housing. If it's not far enough on the lens it makes it very difficult to get the lens to zoom. Also the f stop lever is a bit inconspicuous and took a while to find, it's to the far right of the housing and is black. It blends right in. Other than that it's pretty easy to figure out and functions exactly like I hoped it would.

        I leave for Hawaii in just three weeks. I have been looking at this under water case for my Nikon1 J2 for quite a while. I almost fell over when I saw the incredible deal offered by B&H. It saved me $650 off the original price. I don't know how they did it, but it will make my trip to Hawaii a lot more memorable. I will do another review when I return to say how it works. Right now it looks like a huge hit!

          This housing is of course Nikon quality. It allows me to have all the functions of the camera while it is within the housing. It is well build, and is a great bargain at the current price.

          Comments about WP-N1 Waterproof Housing for Nikon 1 J1 / J2 Digital Camera:

          I bought this on a whim and haven't even had the chance to use it. I just couldn't pass up the deal. It was on sale at the holidays for I've $500 off. I didn't even have the camera to go with it, but found a factory direct refurbished on sale with the 10-30mm lens. Basically I have a $1,000+ scuba camera for around $300. I can't yet comment on the functionality, but I don't think I can go wrong regardless for the price.

            To appreciate a quality of this product, you must learn how to use it. The housing itself is simple, but Nikon j1/j2 as an underwater camera is not simple. To see quality update firmware to the newest version. Play a lot with the camera and housing to be sure that you are comfortable with all functions. In hot and humid areas lock your camera in the housing min. 10 hrs before diving (Don't forget dessicants and silicone grease on oring), don't open housing before diving. Make pictures on program and SD settings. Underwater, give yourself time to make pictures of your life (note: autofokus is slow on this camera). Good luck, this is superior product. I tested this housing up to the 72' deep and worked great.

            • Underwater Photography

            Comments about WP-N1 Waterproof Housing for Nikon 1 J1 / J2 Digital Camera:

            Took this housing w/Nikon 1 J1 snorkeling in the Keys. Worked really well. Make sure you read all directions so you don't get any leaks. Turn J1 monitor brightness all the way up if snorkeling in sunshine, makes seeing image easier.

            Only real drawback is very few external flashes work with this housing and camera combo. The Nikon 1 J1 does this weird multiple flash thing before each flash picture, which confuses the underwater flashes that trigger with fibre optic cables. The only flash I found that works well with this combo is the Sea & Sea YS-D1, and even then it will only work in TTL mode, which is a shame. Wish Nikon would come out with a firmware "fix" for the J1 to make it more compatible with underwater strobes.

            Nice housing for a great camera! A little pricey, but best I could find online. Shipping was fast and free. Its great that this housing is specifically designed for the camera, although external strobe option from Nikon would be nice as well. Everything has worked well and no complaints at this point. It will get a workout next month in the Maldives and then we will see if I feel the same.
