You can capture the beauty of sea life and environments at depths as great as 328', thanks to the Sea & Sea MDX-D500 Underwater Housing for your Nikon D500 DSLR camera. This limited edition of the waterproof enclosure features an eye-catching blue finish, and is otherwise the same as the original black housing. It is equipped with dual fiber-optic cable ports, an N-Type 2-pin sync cord connector, and support for an optional, internal Optical YS Converter--all for the attachment of external strobes to improve lighting. Ergonomic, mechanical controls, including levers, push-buttons, and dials, provide access to virtually all camera functions, while dual side grips offer better balance and handling and give you attachment points for lighting arms.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from precision-machined aluminum that has been anodized for resistance to corrosion. As an added bonus, advancements in the machining method have allowed this housing to be made nearly 1 lb lighter in weight than the earlier MDX-D810. A built-in leak sensor alerts you immediately in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal. The MDX-D500 ships without a required lens port, and accepts a series of interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility details, see the Port Chart. Additionally, the MDX-D500 has an external port lock and lens release function that allows you to swap lenses quickly and easily between dives--without removing the back of the housing. The optional VF45 and VF180 viewfinders can be added on to enhance your view for better shot composition underwater.
