The 6812.8 Underwater Housing for Nikon D800 / D800E DSLR from Ikelite is a waterproof case for a Nikon D800 or D800E DSLR camera. The housing is a clear polycarbonate case rated to a depth of 200' and the auto exposure lock and focus lock are placed where they can be activated with your thumb while taking a picture. Camera installation is quick and simple and the o-ring seal can be checked visually through the clear housing.

The Release Handle system allows for easy attachment and removal of SubStrobe mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. The housing is sized and weighted for near neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater. The housing allows TTL operation with Ikelite digital DS SubStrobes when connected to the housing's bulkhead by a sync cord. Seven manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control. An assortment of interchangeable lens ports allows for the use of most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses.

Note: A compatible Ikelite Standard or Modular Lens Port is required for operation of this housing and must be purchased separately. Lens ports vary based on length and type of lens. Camera and lens not included.

Superior Flash Control
Proprietary circuitry allows for direct communication between the camera and current Ikelite DS Substrobes--for the most accurate through-the-lens (TTL) metering control of an off-camera flash. Electrical bulkhead and TTL circuitry are provided standard and included in the base purchase price. The camera's built-in flash does not need to fire, providing the extended battery life and no lag between exposures. Rather than reaching out to your external strobe, exposure with a current DS Substrobe can be adjusted quickly through the back of the housing using a large dial control
Ergonomic handling
Controls are provided for every camera function except the metering selector, diopter adjustment control and flash pop-up button. Shutter, video recording start/stop, and a large zoom control knob can all be comfortably reached without removing your hands from the handles. Comfortable rubberized grips provide quick-release attachment points for strobes and accessories. The try and handles may be removed from the housing for convenience in traveling. The complete housing is neutral or slightly negative in freshwater depending on choice of lens port
Reliable performance
A clear view of the camera and o-ring seals facilitates easy assembly and operation. Heavy-duty polycarbonate construction is durable and corrosion-free to ensure performance in even demanding conditions. Lens ports can be removed and replaced quickly with a simple positive locking system which provides visible assurance when the housing is assembled properly
