Capture brilliant photos and Full HD 1080p video of pygmy seahorses, sharks, and coral reefs with your Nikon D4 DSLR camera in Aquatica's AD4 Underwater Housing. The enclosure has a depth rating of 295', which can be upgraded 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 grips afford optimal handling and comfort. The standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the optional, coated Aqua View Finder 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.

Aquatica's AD4 ships without a required lens port, though numerous interchangeable ports are available for wide-angle, macro, and zoom lenses. For complete compatibility information, check out the Port Chart.

Thanks to a pair of Nikonos connectors, each with 5 active pins, the housing allows 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.

  • Housing is ready to accept a third-party TTL converter, which is available separately and will enable TTL flash exposure. Manual exposure is available by default
  • Aquatica's strobe connectors are user-serviceable and can be replaced quickly, without any special tools
Viewfinder
  • The Galileo-type eyepiece is a coated optical viewfinder offering a full view of the camera's finder
  • The optional, coated Aqua View Finder offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and internal dioptric adjustment
Mounting
  • Both grips have mounting holes ready to accept Aquatica's Technical Lighting Control (TLC) arms and other optional support arms
