Capture beautiful photos and Full HD 1080p video of coral, parrot fish, and other sea life with your Nikon COOLPIX P300 or P310 camera in Ikelite's dedicated Underwater Housing. Built for durability, it features a depth rating of 200' and is crafted from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic. The camera's built-in flash is usable but its range, coverage, power, and color-correcting capabilities are limited, and it's also likely to cause backscatter, so it's highly recommended that you use an external strobe like Ikelite's AF35. This type of optional flash can be triggered as a wireless slave by the camera's built-in unit.

The housing includes a diffuser to soften the light of the camera's flash, as well as a deflector to redirect this light towards an external strobe. Choose the AF35 for easy automatic exposure, or add an Ikelite DS Substrobe via the optional EV Manual Controller to benefit from greater power and wider coverage.

Mechanical controls on the housing, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and a lever, provide access to virtually all camera functions. Expand your coverage or enable extreme close-up shots by attaching optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle or macro wet lenses to the housing's built-in, 3.0", flat glass lens port. Both types of lenses decrease the amount of water between your lens and your subject, thus cutting down on distortion. When you're not shooting with a strobe, you can also attach optional, external color-correction filters for blue or green water, in order to restore hues that get absorbed beneath the surface.

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Made by hand in the USA from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and acrylic
  • Clear to allow for visual inspection and monitoring of the camera and O-ring seal
  • Simply close the 2 stainless steel locking latches to see the O-ring form a solid, black, watertight seal
Controls and Handling
  • Large, ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and a lever, afford access to all camera functions except for the flash pop-up control
  • Two 12-24 threaded mounts on the bottom of the housing allow for the secure attachment of optional trays and grips, which improve balance and handling while providing attachment points for lighting arms
Lens Port
  • Built-in, flat glass lens port with 3.0" diameter
  • Accepts optional, external, 67mm threaded wide-angle and macro "wet" lenses
  • Wide-angle option increases your angle of coverage, allowing you to get close to your subject while fitting more in the frame
  • Macro lens enables extreme close-ups with great clarity and detail, so you can fill the whole frame with a tiny sea creature
  • Both types of accessory conversion lenses cut down on distortion caused by the water, resulting in better image quality
  • Ikelite WD-3 Wide-Angle Dome provides mid-range coverage with no vignetting
  • Ikelite W-30, INON UWL-H100, and other 67mm wide-angle options offer wider coverage, but not without a little vignetting and edge distortion
  • By using a smaller aperture, zooming in slightly, and/or cropping in post-production, vignetting and distortion can be reduced or eliminated
  • Available macro lenses include those from INON, Epoque, and other brands
  • When not using an external strobe, attach an optional, external color-correction filter for blue or green water to your port, in order to restore hues that are absorbed beneath the surface
  • Ikelite filters #6441.41 and #6441.81 are available for tropical blue and green water, respectively
  • 3.0" filters can be pressed directly onto the port; larger 3.6" size may be required when fitting filters onto wide-angle wet lenses
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Camera's built-in flash is usable, but its range, coverage, power, and color-correcting capabilities are limited and it's likely to cause backscatter
  • Use of an Ikelite AF35 or other external flash is highly recommended, in order to ensure sufficient illumination, coverage, and color correction
  • By adding an Ikelite DS Substrobe via the optional EV Manual Controller, you'll benefit from greater power and wider coverage
  • External strobes are triggered by the firing of the camera's built-in flash
  • Supplied diffuser softens the light of the camera's flash to prevent backscatter, glare, and hard shadows
  • Included deflector redirects the light of the built-in flash towards an external strobe for more effective and reliable triggering
