Capture images and video beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX S5300 Digital Camera inside this Underwater Housing from Ikelite. This waterproof enclosure has a depth rating of 200'. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled knob, provide access to all important camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. It's made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter and accepts optional, external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. You can also add optional color-correction filters to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.

Expand your system by adding an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for the connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber optic cables. It includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe.

Waterproofing
Can be safely used at a maximum depth of 200'. Drop-in loading enables quick and easy camera installation and setup. Simply close the side latch and see the o-ring form a solid watertight seal.
Controls and Handling
Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons and a knurled knob, provide access to all important camera functions. The housing is configured with a 12-24 thread with 3.0" spacing for mounting an optional tray with single or dual grip handles, which will provide improved balance and handling as well as quick-release attachment points for lighting arms.
Construction Details
Designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. Made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the o-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera.
Lens Port
Integrated flat glass lens port has a 3.0" diameter. It accepts optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively. Both types of lenses will enable you to get closer to your subjects, cutting down on the amount of water between you and them to reduce distortion. The recommended W30 Wide-Angle Lens provides 0.59x magnification. You can also add optional color-correction filters #6441.41 for blue water and 6441.81 for green water to restore colors that get absorbed below the surface.
Flash Use
You can add an optional AF35 AutoFlash strobe, which features a flex arm and mounts onto the grip handle of an optional tray. This external strobe is triggered as a wireless slave by the firing of the camera's built-in flash and replicates TTL exposure. The housing is also equipped with two ports for the connection of Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber optic cables. It includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's built-in flash and a deflector to redirect it towards an external strobe. Since a built-in flash is generally only effective within a very short distance from your subject, the use of a more powerful external strobe is highly recommended. It will provide greater illumination, color accuracy, and vibrancy, and will virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
Additional Recommended Optional Accessories
