Capture brilliant images of coral reefs, pygmy seahorses, and blue-ringed octopi with this Ikelite 200DL Underwater Housing and Nikon D810 DSLR Camera Body Kit from B&H. The durable ABS and polycarbonate housing allows you to descend to depths as great as 200'. Its mechanical controls afford access to most of the functions of the 36MP, full-frame D810. Additionally, the omission of the low-pass filter enables the camera's sensor to deliver a higher resolution with greater detail.

The waterproof enclosure's DL mount accepts various dome and flat ports to accommodate a broad array of lenses. Add an external strobe or video light to your system to ensure sufficient illumination and color accuracy on cloudy days, and when diving beyond 20' or so on clear, sunny days.

Construction Details

  • Depth rating of 200'
  • Made by hand in the USA from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend
  • White on the front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep the camera cool when shooting on or above the water's surface
  • Clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in fresh water
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation, and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • Mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Use of an optional external strobe is highly recommended for color correction and adequate brightness, and basically essential once you descend further than 15-20' underwater
  • Strobe restores hues that get absorbed by the water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from your subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of strobes
  • Optional #46064 NT2 TTL hot shoe and Nikon TTL Converter #4301.3 enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes, which use #4103.51 Single and #4103.52 Dual Cords
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, will still work in manual mode only, and can be attached via the following cords: #4118.1 Single INON or Sea & Sea, #4118.2 Dual INON or Sea & Sea, #4116.31 Single Nikonos SB, and #4116.32 Dual Nikonos SB
  • Older non-digital strobes can be used in manual mode via #4103.51 Single and #4103.52 Dual Cords
  • Housing ships without a required sync cord for a strobe
  • Bulkhead has been moved to the top of the enclosure to keep the cord out of your way and reduce strain on the ends

Controls and Handling

  • Sensitive, redesigned shutter and AF-On levers are curved and extendable for comfortable use when holding the optional right-hand quick-release grip
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob is located next to the grip handle
  • Push-buttons have been modified to reduce weight and salt buildup
  • Ergonomic mechanical push-buttons, dials, and levers afford access to all camera functions except for the mode dial lock release, diopter adjustment, eyepiece shutter lever, Pv button, Fn button, focus mode selector, focus selector lock, and BKT button
  • Control symbols are laser-etched into the back of the housing, so they won't fade or fall off with time
  • Supereye Viewfinder enhances your view through the camera's OVF when you're wearing a mask
  • You can remove the Supereye quickly if you'd like to attach the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • Hard-anodized aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • Optional right-hand grip can be added easily
  • 1/4"-20 mounts and other mounting points enable connection to a tripod and the addition of accessories
  • Tray is more than 3/4 lb lighter than Ikelite's previous model
  • Housing is 1/2 lb lighter than model # 6812.81, its FL-mount counterpart
  • Another 1/4"-20 threaded mount is located front and center on the housing above the port mount, allowing for the attachment of a focus light or other lightweight accessory

Lens Port System

  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts all Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) dome and flat ports, allowing you to shoot with a wide variety of lenses
  • Zoom gears are available for many lenses
  • For complete compatibility details, see the port chart linked above
  • DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters
  • Provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve that helps you check watertight integrity before the dive
  • Pump is required in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum
  • DL mount can be removed and replaced by the older FL (Four Lock) port locks, though this change would be irreversible unless you sent the housing back to Ikelite to have the DL mount installed again
