The 6812.6 Underwater Housing for Nikon D600 DSLR Camera from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Nikon D600 digital SLR camera. It has a depth rating of 200' (60 m).
The housing provides access to almost all camera functions via mechanical controls. The metering selector, diopter adjustment control and flash pop-up button are inaccessible. The camera's built-in flash is not usable. The case is constructed from durable polycarbonate, known for its corrosion-resistant properties, and is clear to enable you to monitor the O-ring seal. Housing buoyancy is neutral or slightly negative in freshwater.
The housing requires a lens port (sold separately). Ikelite offers both Standard and Modular ports, of the dome and flat variety, to accommodate a wide range of Nikon F bayonet mount prime and zoom lenses.
The housing is built with TTL circuitry. Although the camera's built-in flash can't fire inside the housing, you can still trigger an optional underwater strobe via direct connect flash. In fact, this method is more reliable and efficient than using the camera's built-in flash, since it extends battery life and eliminates lag between exposures.
The housing is equipped with a glass optical viewfinder, positioned just above the camera's LCD monitor. A tray with handles is included, and the rubber grips provide a comfortable, secure hold. Lens zoom clamps and sleeves are also supplied for optional zoom lenses.
