Use your Nikon Z7/Z6 mirrorless camera to capture the beauty of sea life and environments at depths as great as 328' with the Sea & Sea MDX-Z7 Underwater Housing. This aluminum-bodied waterproof enclosure is equipped with dual fiber-optic cable ports and support for an optional, internal Optical YS Converter for fiber-optic strobe use, as well as an N-Type 2-pin connector, for sync cord strobes. 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. A built-in leak sensor alerts you immediately in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal.

The MDX-Z7 ships without a required lens port, and accepts a series of interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility details, see the Port Chart. The housing's focus and zoom gears work with standard F mount lenses and the Nikon FTZ adapter, as well as with Z mount lenses. The housing's external port lock and lens release function allow you to swap lenses quickly and easily between dives--without removing the back of the housing. Optional VF45 and VF180 viewfinders can be added on for easier viewing underwater.

Controls, Handling, and Operation

  • Important controls, such as Info, ISO, and FN, have been positioned on right and left sides to make them easily accessible while you're holding grips
  • When focus/zoom dial is pulled out, gear inside housing moves outwards to allow lenses with large diameters to be mounted easily
  • Two comfortable, grooved side grips offer better balance and handling and give you attachment points for optional lighting arms
