Overview
  • 1Description

The AD4 Underwater Housing from Aquatica is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon D4 DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426'. Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions and dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort. The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the coated Aqua View Finder, also included, offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.

The housing is precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. It's made of an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, which has been anodized to North American military specifications to ensure superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, it features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a baked-on layer of powder-coated paint.

The AD4 ships without a required lens port, though an array of interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. For full compatibility, see Port Chart.

The housing has a single Ikelite 5-pin connector for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords. These strobes can be connected to optional support arms, such as Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control (TLC) arms, which can be conveniently mounted on the housing's grip handles. An extra mounting point for a focus/video light or other accessory is located on top of the housing, and three additional mounting points are provided underneath for various brackets or a tripod.

Waterproofing
Features a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable by request to 426'.
Controls
Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions, and dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort. Knurled knobs and oversized controls, such as the multi-controller SET button, make for easy operation, even when wearing gloves. Benefit from a toggle lever for the function (Fn) and depth-of-field preview (Pv) controls, in addition to smooth operation of all video controls. A redesigned, larger lens gear system allows for smoother zooming during video recording. The left-hand quick lever provides easy ISO sensitivity selection, and left-hand function buttons are angled and positioned for faster access. On the right-hand side, the live view lever has been relocated closer to your thumb
Construction
Precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. Made for durability, it's constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, which has been anodized to North American military specifications to ensure superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, it features corrosion-resistant, sacrificial zinc anodes and a baked-on layer of powder-coated paint. All push-buttons are made of Type 304 stainless steel
Lens Port
Ships without a required lens port, though an array of interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. For full compatibility, see Port Chart linked above
External Strobe Use
This version of the housing has a single Ikelite 5-pin connector for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords. These strobes can be connected to optional support arms, such as Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control arms, which can be conveniently mounted on the housing's grip handles. Housing is ready to accept a third-party TTL converter, which is available separately and will enable TTL flash exposure. Manual exposure is available by default. Aquatica's strobe connectors are now user-serviceable and can be replaced quickly, without any special tools
Viewfinder
The Galileo type eyepiece is a coated optical viewfinder offering a full view of the camera's finder. The coated Aqua View Finder, also included, offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and internal dioptric adjustment
Mounting
Both grips have mounting holes ready to accept Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control (TLC) arms and other optional support arms. Redesigned camera tray allows you to insert and remove the camera using a simple push tab. Zoom-actuating pinion gear and lens release lever enable you to remove camera from the back while keeping a lens and zoom gear attached. Three bulkhead access holes are provided to accept multiple external accessories, such as Aquatica's remote trigger (# 19304), Water Wizard external radio transceiver housing (# 15500), external monitors and more. An extra mounting point for a focus/video light or other accessory is located on top of the housing, and three additional mounting points are provided underneath for various brackets or a tripod
Optional Hydrophone
Enables the recording of sound when shooting video beneath the water's surface
