The Ikelite Underwater Housing for Nikon D300s allows you to take both underwater stills and video with your Nikon D300s digital camera. The housing supports iTTL strobe control with Ikelite DS digital SubStrobes. A large dial on the back of the housing puts precise exposure control right at your fingertips. The top (yellow) half of the exposure dial provides four 1/3 f/stop increments of over or under flash compensation to be added to or subtracted from any compensation entered into the camera. The bottom (black) half of the dial provides seven manual power settings in half-stop increments. Other manufacturers' strobes can be used, but they cannot provide iTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing.

 

Controls are provided for every camera function except Focus Selector Lock, Metering Selector and Flash "Pop-Up" Button. Movie and Live View can be accessed through the housing. An ergonomic control for recording start/stop allows the camera's video function to be accessed effortlessly with your right thumb. An oversized zoom knob can be comfortably reached with the fingertips of your left hand. The Ikelite Super-Eye magnifier provided with the housing offers enhanced viewing while wearing a diving mask.

 

The auto focus system on the camera is very good, but does require a certain amount of light and contrast. When shooting under ledges, on night dives, or inside caves and wrecks a focus light will allow the camera to focus faster. The housing features a 1/4-20 threaded mounting socket in the center of the housing above the lens port. This is the perfect place to attach a focus light or other accessories.

The housing size and weight provides neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater. Camera installation is quick and simple. The dependable controls are conveniently placed at your fingertips, and kept watertight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands, proven to be the most reliable method for sealing controls.

An assortment of interchangeable lens ports allows use of most macro, wide-angle, and zoom lenses. Ikelite uses a simple and reliable 4-point locking system to attach lens ports to the housing. This fail-safe assembly consists of one sliding lock in each corner around the opening that accepts the port.

A lens port is required to match specific lens on SLR camera. Please also note that some zoom lenses might require addition of a Close-Up #4 diopter filter on the lens.
