The AD4 Underwater Housing from Aquatica is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon D4 DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426'. Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions and dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort. The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the coated Aqua View Finder, also included, offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.

The housing is precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. It's made of an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, which has been anodized to North American military specifications to ensure superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, it features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a baked-on layer of powder-coated paint.

The AD4 ships without a required lens port, though an array of interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. For full compatibility, see Port Chart.

The housing has a pair of Nikonos connectors, each with 5 active pins, for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords. These strobes can be connected to optional support arms, such as Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control (TLC) arms, which can be conveniently mounted on the housing's grip handles. An extra mounting point for a focus/video light or other accessory is located on top of the housing, and three additional mounting points are provided underneath for various brackets or a tripod.

Benefit from a toggle lever for the function (Fn) and depth-of-field preview (Pv) controls, in addition to smooth operation of all video controls. A redesigned, larger lens gear system allows for smoother zooming during video recording. The left-hand quick lever provides easy ISO sensitivity selection, and left-hand function buttons are angled and positioned for faster access. On the right-hand side, the live view lever has been relocated closer to your thumb

Precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines.
