The clear polycarbonate case is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. Unlike aluminum housings there is a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. Mechanical controls are kept water-tight withI kelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m). The housing is only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port.

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except focus selector lock, metering selector, diopter adjustment control, and flash pop-up button. Stay depressed control operates the White Balance, ISO and Dual functions on top left of camera body. AE/AF lock button can be activated with your thumb while holding the handle. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle.
A full range of dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing quality. The modular system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately.
TTL conversion circuitry is included in every Ikelite digital SLR housing. The Nikon iTTL conversion circuitry in the D-700 housing works perfectly with all current model Ikelite DS Substrobes
A large dial on the back of the housing puts precise exposure control right at your fingertips. The top (yellow) half of the exposure dial provides four 1/3 f/stop increments over or under flash compensation that is added to or subtracted from any compensation entered into the camera. The bottom (black) half of the dial provides seven manual power settings in half-stop increments. Add single or dual Ikelite DS Substrobes with Ikelite sync cord to take full advantage of these features
Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide iTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Sync cords for the attachment of Nikonos, Inon or Sea & Sea strobes are available.
Release handles with comfortable rubber grips allow for easy attachment and removal of mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling.
All housings come standard with a one-year warranty against manufacturer defect and Ikelite's unrivaled commitment to after-purchasesupport and service. Our reputation speaks for itself.
