This Ikelite Underwater Housing and Camera Body Kit from B&H Photo bundles the Ikelite 6801.71 waterproof case with the Nikon D7100 DSLR camera body it houses, enabling you to capture photos and video at a maximum depth of 200'. The housing provides access to all important camera functions via mechanical controls. It is constructed from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal and camera.
A compatible lens port from Ikelite's Standard or Modular system is required and sold separately. Ports are available for most popular lenses. Though the camera's built-in flash is not usable, the housing supports electrical TTL flash exposure with optional external Ikelite DS Substrobes--without requiring the camera's built-in flash to fire. The electrical bulkhead and TTL circuitry for direct strobe connection are provided standard on the housing. There's also a glass optical viewfinder, a tray with rubber grips, and a set of lens zoom gears.
Nikon's D7100 DSLR camera body is a compact model featuring a 24.1MP DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor for high-resolution photos, Full HD 1080p video capture, continuous 24MP shots at 6 fps, and outstanding low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. The lack of an optical low-pass filter maximizes resolution for exceptionally sharp details. Benefit from a 51-point autofocus area with 15 cross-type sensors for detecting both vertical and horizontal variations to achieve fast, precise focus. Additionally, the camera offers a 3.2", 1229k-dot LCD monitor and an optical viewfinder.
