Capture the beauty, mystery, and variety of the world beneath the sea at depths up to 200', thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing and Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera Kit from B&H Photo. This package bundles the durable #6801.55 waterproof enclosure from Ikelite with Nikon's compact black digital SLR body, so once you grab your favorite lens, a compatible lens port, and a flash, you'll be ready to begin your underwater adventure.
The housing has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. Mechanical controls afford access to all important camera functions. The housing includes a mounting tray with dual quick-release handles, which improve balance and give you attachment points for lighting arms. Built for durability, the enclosure is made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring and camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA. The housing is shipped without a required lens port and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, see the Port Finder and Charts linked in the full write-up below.
Nikon's D5500 camera features a 24.2MP DX-format CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 4 image processor, which combine to deliver detailed still photos, Full HD 1080/60p video, 39-point autofocus, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 25600. Additionally, benefit from full-resolution burst shooting at 5 fps. The optical low-pass filter has been omitted from the sensor, allowing for additional sharpness in both photos and videos. A whole system of optional Nikon F mount lenses are at your disposal. The camera is also equipped with a 3.2", 1037k-dot, vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor. Built-in Wi-Fi enables advanced image sharing capabilities, and when the camera is paired with an Android or iOS mobile device, remote viewing and control over the shutter release are possible.
