This Ikelite Underwater Housing with Nikon COOLPIX L30 Digital Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles an Ikelite waterproof enclosure with the Nikon COOLPIX L30 point-and-shoot camera it accommodates, enabling you to shoot beneath the surface to a maximum depth of 200'. The housing's large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled dial, afford access to all camera functions.
The use of the camera's built-in flash is enabled, and the housing includes a diffuser to soften the light of the flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an optional external strobe. Such a strobe can be triggered as a wireless slave unit by the firing of the built-in flash, or up to 2 strobes can be fired in a wired configuration via the dual fiber-optic ports, which accept optional Ikelite, Sea & Sea or Olympus type fiber-optic cables. Built for durability, the housing is made from clear, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate. It also has a built-in, 3.0" flat glass lens port with 67mm diameter threads.
The red COOLPIX L30 Digital Camera from Nikon is a compact point-and-shoot featuring a 20.1MP, 1/2.3" CCD image sensor, which works with the processor to deliver high-resolution still photos, HD 1280 x 720p video recording, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 1600. The NIKKOR 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 26-130mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. The camera is also equipped with a 3.0", 230k-dot LCD monitor. Electronic Vibration Reduction helps to maintain image sharpness by counteracting camera shake, and the motion detection feature makes necessary changes to settings when shooting still images of moving objects.
