Aquatica 20070-NK overview

  • 1Description

Capture brilliant photos and Full HD 1080p video of pygmy seahorses, sharks, and coral reefs, thanks to Aquatica's AD800 Underwater Housing for your Nikon D800 or D800E digital camera. It has a depth rating of 295', which is upgradeable to 426.5'. The housing is equipped with a pair of Nikonos strobe connectors, each with five active pins.

Access to virtually all camera functions is provided by mechanical controls. The addition of a unique toggle lever makes the AD800 housing the first of its kind from Aquatica to offer access to the Fn and DOF preview buttons. Various custom functions can be assigned to each of these buttons. The AD800 also has dual ergonomic hand grips, which allow for easy underwater handling and give you attachment points for lighting arms.

To ensure excellent durability, the housing is constructed from an aluminum alloy and stainless steel. It is machined on advanced, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines, then anodized to North American military specifications to safeguard against corrosion and other damage. A tough powder coating and corrosion-resistant zinc anodes provide additional protection.

The AD800 ships without a required lens port, and accepts various interchangeable ports for wide-angle, zoom, and macro lenses. See the Port Chart for complete information. A standard, coated eyepiece offers a full view of the camera's viewfinder, and the optional Aqua View Finder offers an enlarged, enhanced view with 100% coverage, corner-to-corner sharpness, and dioptric adjustment.

  • Depth rating: 295', upgradeable to 426'
Controls, Handling, and Operation
  • Enables access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical controls
  • Knurled knobs and over-sized controls allow for easy operation in any situation
  • With the addition of a unique toggle lever, the AD800 is the first housing of its kind from Aquatica to offer access to the Fn and DOF preview buttons
  • You can assign the following custom functions to the depth of field button: Power aperture (close), index marking in video mode, and view photo shooting info
  • To the Fn button, you may assign these custom functions: Select image area using the main command dial, convert to depth of field preview, FV Lock (lock the flash value), AE/AF lock, AE lock only, AE lock (reset on release), AE lock (hold), AF lock only, AF-ON, flash off, power aperture (open), index marking in video mode, and view photo shooting info
  • Housing features an internal flash up/flash down capability, as well as a quick-access ISO lever that is thumb-activated
  • AF-L/AE-L and AF-ON button access is now provided by a combined lever and rotating collar that prevents ambient pressure from pushing it back towards the housing
  • Menu buttons have been angled to make them more accessible with your left hand
  • Lens gear system consists of a smaller housing pinion and a larger lens gear, allowing for smoother action while zooming in during a video sequence
  • On the left-hand side of the housing, the buttons and mode selector control are angled and positioned for quicker access to the various functions
  • On the right-hand side, the video recording lever has been relocated closer to your index finger
  • Live View toggle remains within easy reach
  • Multi-controller pad found on Nikon D800 is accessible, and its SET button has been enlarged

  • Optional Aqua View Finder gives you an enlarged, enhanced image with corner-to-corner sharpness, which will be a great help to you in shot composition and critical focusing
Construction Details
  • Housing is made from aluminum alloy
  • Built on sophisticated, 5-axis, computer-assisted machines, then anodized to North American military specifications to safeguard against corrosion and other damage
  • Tough powder coating and corrosion-resistant zinc anodes on sensitive parts of housing enhance durability even further
  • Controls are made of Type 304 stainless steel--the same steel used in the aerospace industry--to prevent breakage and rusting
  • Redesigned camera tray positions the camera in exactly the right place in the housing, and is easily disengaged with a simple push on a tab
  • The zoom-actuating pinion gear and lens-release lever pull out to allow you to remove the camera from the back while keeping a lens and zoom gear attached
  • Housing is built in Canada, so it's endured long-term exposure to one of the world's most rugged diving environments, in order to ensure extreme durability
Lens Port System
  • Ships without required lens port
  • Accepts interchangeable ports for various wide-angle, zoom, and macro lenses. Choose from 4 different dome ports and a macro port
  • See the port chart linked above for full compatibility details
External Strobe Use
  • Two Nikonos strobe connectors, each with five active pins, enable attachment of optional strobes for TTL or manual exposure
  • TTL is possible with optional third-party converters
  • Bulkhead connectors are compatible with some of the most popular strobes available, which are attached via Nikonos-type sync cords and/or a TTL converter
  • Aquatica's connectors are now user-serviceable, and replacement can be done quickly, without any special tools, in a matter of minutes
  • A total of 3 access holes are provided for various external accessories, such as Aquatica's remote trigger (# 19304), external monitors, and more
  • Both hand grips have holes ready to accept Aquatica's TLC mounting bracket for lighting arms, as well as various other lighting supports
