Overview
  • 1Description

This Underwater Housing from Equinox is a waterproof case for the Nikon D800 DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 250'. The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via the following manual, mechanical controls: shutter, menu, select & scroll, start/stop video recording, mode, manual focus, auto focus, ISO, and white balance. Additionally, benefit from a full view of your DSLR's monitor. The housing features a 6" dome-shaped lens port that fits the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED Autofocus lens.

An included Ikelite bulkhead allows for the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords, which are available separately. Strobes from Ikelite and other brands are usable with the proper cords. The camera's built-in flash may be used to trigger external slave strobes.

The housing is constructed from durable, thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate. The Ballast Release System (BRS) allows for easy travel and fast transport to the surface. Simply pull on the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and ballast/handle are both released; the housing now becomes positive in buoyancy and shoots to the surface. Regularly, the housing has near-neutral buoyancy, thanks to an internal 2-lb half-moon weight.
