  • Aquatica AD7100/200 Underwater Housing for Nikon D7100 or D7200 (Dual Nikonos Strobe Connectors)

    The AD7100/200 Underwater Housing from Aquatica is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon D7100 or D7200 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, supplied Galileo-type eyepiece is a coated OVF offering a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the optional coated Aqua View Finder offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment..

    The housing is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel alloys, and precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. Laser-cutting tools help achieve precise shaping. Anodizing the aluminum to North American military specifications ensures superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, the housing features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a tough, baked-on powder coating.

    The AD7100/200 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 pair of Nikonos connectors, each with 5 active pins, 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. The housing body has an extra mounting point on top for a focus/video light or other accessory, and three additional mounting points underneath for various brackets or a tripod.

    Controls
    Mechanical controls provide convenient access to virtually all camera functions, including power on/off, live view mode, record on/off, all menus and video controls, ISO lever, exposure mode, bracketing, metering, focus control, AF activation and lock, enlarge and delete, histogram, review and preferences. Dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort with or without gloves. Knobs are grooved and knurled for ease of use. The rear button array on the left hand side is angled at 15° and buttons are extended where necessary for easy, comfortable access.

    The Multi-Controller assembly has been redesigned to feel more natural and intuitive. It's accessed via 5 individual buttons allowing you to scroll through menus or review images with ease. Three spring arrays ensure smooth, precise operation of the shutter release, video recording and exposure compensation levers. All functions are clearly identified with permanent, pad-printed paint for quick visual identification

Additionally, the flexible port extension system accepts teleconverters and diopters. For full compatibility, see the port chart linked above. Port-locking mechanism securely locks the port or extension ring in place, so you know it's watertight and will stay that way

  • Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera (Body Only)

    The D7100 DSLR Camera from Nikon is a high performance, compact DSLR camera with high resolution photo and Full HD video capability. The 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor provides superior images with accurate colors and, designed without an optical low-pass filter, it maximizes its resolution for exceptionally sharp details. The EXPEED 3 image processor brings with it stable, high-speed response, including a continuous shooting speed of up to 6 frames per second. With an ISO sensitivity range that expands to a 25600 ISO equivalent, low-light photography is sharp and detailed with less noise and fast-moving subjects are captured with more accuracy and less blur. At the low end of ISO sensitivity (ISO 100) images display vibrant colors with rich tones.

    Autofocus performance on the D7100 is on par with professional-level DSLRs and includes a 51-point focus area with 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal variations to achieve fast, precise focus. The central cross-type sensor works down to f/8, which is an advantage when using compatible tele-converters. The D7100 features the option of a 1.3x crop which allows you to get closer to your subject, as well as providing more image size options and faster processing of your images, including a faster 7fps burst rate.

    Full HD 1080p video is supported on the D7100 and offers professional-level control including continuous autofocus, manual exposure control, a built-in stereo microphone and an external microphone and headphone jack. Recording at 60i, 50i, 30, 25 and 24 frames per second is possible and an HDMI output allows for direct screening on an HDTV. At 720p HD you can record at 60p frames per second for smooth slow-motion sequencing.

    A 3.2" 1229k-dot TFT-color LCD provides 100% coverage for accurate playback and live view composition and the pentaprism optical viewfinder features an OLED display element for clear reading of the camera's settings without removing your eye from the finder. Dual SD card slots offer large memory capacity and the ability to designate which images go to each card. A built-in flash with commander function supports Advanced Wireless Lighting and a hot-shoe/accessory mount is available for speedlights. The D7100 is lightweight and durable with magnesium alloy top and rear covers and weather sealing to prevent dust and moisture damage. 

    The D7100 is compatible with all NIKKOR F mount lenses, both DX and FX format, and can provide wireless connectivity with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. With the WU-1a and Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Utility app installed on your smartphone or tablet, you can instantly share images and use your phone or tablet as a Live View monitor.

    24.1MP DX-Format Sensor + EXPEED 3 Image Processing System
    With its 24.1MP CMOS image sensor and Nikon's EXPEED 3 image processing system, the D7100 DSLR delivers high quality images with low noise. The EXPEED 3 image processor combined with 14-bit analog/digital conversion provides even tonal gradations while managing color, contrast, exposure, and noise resulting in brilliant image quality. EXPEED 3 also provides the D7100 with fast response time, autofocus speed and a rapid six frames-per-second (fps) burst speed up to 100 images.
    Omitted Optical Low Pass Filter
    The D7100 is designed without the optical low-pass filter which will allow the sensor to capture images with exceptional sharpness and detail.
    Full HD 1080p Video
    With full-time autofocus and manual exposure control during video recording, a built-in stereo microphone and an external stereo microphone jack, headphone and HDMI jacks, the D7100 achieves exceptional cinematic reproduction and quality. Record in several high-definition formats: 1080p at 60i/50i/30/25/24 fps or 720p at up to 60p for ultra-smooth slow-motion sequences. Dual SD card slots give you additional recording time, and an all new 60i function enables smooth playback on HDTVs or external monitors.
    3.2" 1229k-dot LCD and Optical Viewfinder with OLED Display
    The D7100 features a new 3.2" ultra-high-resolution 1,229K-dot LCD monitor which provides crisp image playback, menu adjustments and Live View shooting. The pentaprism eye-level optical viewfinder contains a low-power consumption OLED display element for bright, high contrast data readout and provides 100% frame coverage.
    Fast Autofocus
    The D7100 uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal contrast variations, to achieve fast, precise focus.
    1.3x Crop
    Get closer to your subject with the new 1.3x crop of DX sensor. Using the 1.3x crop option allows the 51 autofocus points to cover almost the entire frame as well as providing longer equivalent focal lengths and faster image processing.
    Built-in HDR
    Built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines shots taken simultaneously at different exposures into one rich, high-contrast image. When shooting high contrast scenes with bright spots and shadows, HDR will create a balanced image in which no details are lost.
    Picture Control
    Picture Control gives you instant access to the color characteristics of your images and allows you to tweak colors for optimization or completely redesign the look of your image for creative variations.
    Spot White Balance
    Spot White Balance control for Live View shooting makes setting the white balance as easy as pointing to the area in the frame that should be white.
    Built-in i-TTL Flash and Speedlight Compatibility
    The built-in pop-up iTTL Speedlight offers wide-angle flash-coverage. The camera also has Wireless Commander support so users can maximize the potential of Nikon's creative lighting options. Using the integral flash set to Wireless Commander in combination with one or several off-camera Nikon Speedlights, you can create a unique look for each and every photograph. Up to eight Speedlights can be fired at once. A hot shoe/accessory mount is also available for external Speedlights.
