The AD7100/200 Underwater Housing from Aquatica is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon D7100 or D7200 DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426'. This version of the housing also includes a pre-installed vacuum check system, which allows you to confirm watertight integrity before the dive. Mechanical controls provide easy access to virtually all camera functions, and dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort. The standard, supplied Galileo-type eyepiece is a coated OVF offering 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 made of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel alloys, and precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. Laser-cutting tools help achieve precise shaping. Anodizing the aluminum to North American military specifications ensures superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, the housing features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a tough, baked-on powder coating.

The AD7100/200 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 1 optical and 1 Nikonos connector for the attachment of optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables and sync cords. These strobes can be connected to optional support arms, such as Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control arms, which can be conveniently mounted on the housing's grip handles. The housing body has an extra mounting point on top for a focus/video light or other accessory, and three additional mounting points underneath for various brackets or a tripod.

Waterproofing
Features a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable by request to 426'. Control shafts feature double O-ring seals, while push buttons have quad-ring seals for reliable waterproofing. This version of housing includes pre-installed vacuum check system, which allows you to confirm watertight integrity before dive. Known as Vacuum Circuitry and Alarm Kit, the atmospheric pressure-sensitive system consists of a vacuum valve, an extracting pump, and a SURVEYOR moisture alarm/pressure sensor with an on/off switch. Moisture alarm features temperature compensation to prevent change in ambient temperature from affecting its accuracy. Valve and extracting pump contribute by ensuring that a solid vacuum is created inside the housing
Controls
Mechanical controls provide convenient access to virtually all camera functions, including power on/off, live view mode, record on/off, all menus and video controls, ISO lever, exposure mode, bracketing, metering, focus control, AF activation and lock, enlarge and delete, histogram, review and preferences. Dual ergonomic hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort with or without gloves. Knobs are grooved and knurled for ease of use. The rear button array on the left hand side is angled at 15° and buttons are extended where necessary for easy, comfortable access.

The Multi-Controller assembly has been redesigned to feel more natural and intuitive. It's accessed via 5 individual buttons allowing you to scroll through menus or review images with ease. Three spring arrays ensure smooth, precise operation of the shutter release, video recording and exposure compensation levers. All functions are clearly identified with permanent, pad-printed paint for quick visual identification
Construction Details
Made of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel alloys, and precision-built using advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines. Laser-cutting tools help achieve precise shaping. Anodizing the aluminum to North American military specifications ensures superior corrosion resistance. For further protection against the elements, the housing features corrosion-resistant zinc anodes and a tough, baked-on powder coating. Every control shaft and push button is manufactured from stainless steel
Lens Port
Required and available separately. Housing features a four-point bayonet type port mount allowing you to change lenses/ports without having to remove the camera from the housing. Various interchangeable dome and flat ports accommodate different wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses, from a 4.5mm fisheye to a 200mm macro. Additionally, the flexible port extension system accepts teleconverters and diopters. For full compatibility, see the port chart linked above. Port-locking mechanism securely locks the port or extension ring in place, so you know it's watertight and will stay that way
Flash Operation
Quick-access, internal control raises and lowers the camera's built-in flash
External Strobe Use
This version of the housing has 1 optical and 1 Nikonos connector for the attachment of optional external strobes via fiber-optic cables and sync cords. Manual exposure control is available, and the housing is ready to accept a third party TTL converter, which is available separately and will enable TTL flash exposure. Aquatica's strobe connectors are user-serviceable and quickly replaceable, without any special tools. Strobes can be connected to optional support arms, such as Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control arms, which can be conveniently mounted on housing's grip handles

Optional Water Wizard housing for Pocket Wizard Plus III radio transceiver, for use above water only, allows you to link multiple underwater strobes with studio flashes on the surface, without any physical connections
Viewfinder
The Galileo type eyepiece is a coated optical viewfinder offering a bright, full view of the camera's finder, and the coated Aqua View Finder, also included, offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.
Mounting
The housing body has an extra mounting point on top for a focus/video light or other accessory, and three additional mounting points underneath for various brackets or a tripod
Optional Hydrophone
Enables recording of sound underwater when shooting video
