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.

    Who wont buy it at that price

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

          I really dont think too much to buy it at that price, i mean it cost less than even cheap cases.
          And this one its not a cheap case, its an original nikon! lol
          Well you get all that you will need (cleaning kit, moisture pads, etc)
          Build quality, feels great, as soon as you look at this one, you know money was spent in the front element, its no the average plastic from cheap bags or cases, the green tint looks awesome.
          Be careful, i get injuried when open the case, some smart guy at nikon factory think was smart to send this case closed, maybe its the high altitude from mexico, but it was very presurized, cost a lot of work to open it, at first i thought i was doing something wrong, i read again instructions, and again cause it wont open easily, then after using more strong i was able to open it and it exploded, or imploded, whatever, make a loud sound, it hurt a lot and there was blood lol
          I had not using it in the field, cause last week one trip shot was canceled, but i had tested it for leaks, using it to take some shots, one thing its bad and maybe the reason this case its at firesale its that you cant use the control wheel when the camera is in the case, thats particular bad when shoting in manual, also the wheel for controlling the zoom its too hard, i mean the zoom of the j1 its so smooth dont know why its so hard to zoom when in the case, the case say that only the zoom kit could be used, i only had the kit zoom so dont take my word but i could say that maybe the 2 small primes could be used, also theres no way of lowering the flash or disable it in the menu when raised, so either you shot all the time with no flash, or shot all the time with flash, now that i think about it, maybe you could put that tiny black covers in the flash holes, but need to check it out, it certainly will drain the battery faster.
          To close the case it needs to had the locks part closed or wont close, all the times i fail to close at first try, also i cant count how many times i press the movie button thinking i was about to take a photo, that long lever to take the picture i dont like, but i think every case use the same system, but the movie button its just there, its frustating to confuse it to the shutter button.
          Also with the leaver shutter, its not easy to meet the half way to prefocus lock before taking the picture.
          Navigating menus its already frustating with the wheel now imagine with pressing up and down buttons everytime you want to navigate the menu.
          Also i may had to buy a new strap, easier to put and quit, maybe one with clips.
          I would never buy it at the price it had before, but at this price its good for me, many of the thinks i dont like probably i get used in time, and the ones that could be dealbreakers like the flash im sure its equal in other cases and probably will never shot at sun and dark at the same time, the zoom i hope it gets easier with time, the only really bad its you cant use the wheel but the nikon case that can do it cost 7 times more, so i will push endessly that buttons to save money.
          What are you waiting?
          Buy it now, surely they wont last at that price

            Nikon products usually work as advertised; this housing allows for full control of the J1. As it is a relatively old camera, its accessories are heavily discounted.

              This case operated very well on my recent dive trip to cozamel, roatan and belize. It is a fantastic choice because its made by nikon and operates all the controls with maximum clarity. I would highly suggest filters for the best underwater footage!

                Comes just as advertised in the nikon box and all. This was the cheapest price I have ever seen on a WP-N1 housing and I almost didnt beleive it was true until the package arrived! Highly reccomended if you have a J1/J2. KEEP IN MIND IT ONLY IS COMPATABLE WITH A 10-30MM LENSE!

                  Very nicely made housing. Controls for camera sensible. Camera fits nicely in housing.
                  Have checked water tightness in the sink...soon to try it in the ocean.
                  Never seen a better price on a quality housing.
                  There should be links on the web site for u/w flash units that are compatible

                    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!)

                      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!

                        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.

                          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.
