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:

        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.

        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.

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

        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.
