This Underwater Housing from Ikelite is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX P7800 digital camera. It has a depth rating of 200'. The housing's mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except for the monitor button, quick menu button, Fn1 button, diopter adjustment control, and flash pop-up control. The housing still enables the use of the camera's built-in flash, but you'll have to extend the flash prior to placing the camera inside.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed by hand in the USA from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The housing's built-in, flat glass port accommodates the camera's lens and also accepts optional, external, wide-angle and macro accessory lenses. The wide-angle option is the WD-4 dome, which simply slides onto the front of the port. For close-up shooting, attach various macro add-on lenses with standard 67mm threads.

Expand your system by adding an optional Ikelite DS Substrobe. The housing's built-in circuitry and 5-pin electrical bulkhead enable TTL exposure with these TTL-compatible strobes, which are triggered without requiring your camera's built-in flash to fire. Non-Ikelite strobes are available, too, though these will provide manual exposure only. The included aluminum tray with left-hand rubberized grip provides a quick-release point for your external strobe, while also improving balance and handling underwater.

Buoyancy
Slightly negative
Lens Port
Built-in, flat glass port accommodates the camera's lens and also accepts optional, external, wide-angle and macro accessory lenses. The wide-angle option is the WD-4 dome, which simply slides onto the front of the port and can be removed and replaced underwater. It features virtually no corner softness. For close-up shooting, attach various macro add-on lenses with standard 67mm threads, such as those from Inon and Epoque, via the #9306.82 Macro Adapter, which can also be removed and replaced underwater
Color Correction Filters
6441.46 and 6441.86 filters for blue and green water, respectively, help restore colors that get absorbed underwater
TTL Flash Exposure with External Strobes
Ikelite Digital TTL ICS-5 5-pin electrical bulkhead with built-in circuitry lets you expand your system by adding an optional Ikelite DS Substrobe, such as the recommended DS161 with built-in video light. Benefit from TTL exposure with these TTL-compatible strobes, which are triggered without requiring your camera's built-in flash to fire--thereby conserving battery life and eliminating the lag as you wait for the camera's flash to recycle. They connect via sync cords, which are available separately. This type of connection ensures that your strobe won't be triggered by someone else's flash going off, causing it to fire at the wrong time. Non-Ikelite strobes are available, too, though these will provide manual exposure only
Included Flash Diffuser and Deflector
If you do want to use the camera's built-in flash, the bundled diffuser will soften its light. The supplied flash deflector will redirect this light towards an external strobe, giving you the option of triggering the strobe that way
Mounting
An aluminum tray with left-hand rubberized grip is included, providing a quick-release point for your external strobe while also affording better balance and handling beneath the water's surface. Additionally, the grip handle offers a comfortable hold. The complete handle assembly can be attached and removed with just two screws. To add an extra lighting arm for another strobe, you can purchase the optional tray with dual handles
Additional Recommended Optional Accessories
The lightweight (4 oz) aluminum Gamma LED light offers an output of over 220 lumens, a beam angle of 10° and a burn time of 10 hr
