The Ikelite is the first among the manufacturers of underwater housing for photography, has announced the 200DL model for the latest Nikon D780 SLR camera (Hands-on).
The under-water housing is corrosion-free performance year with minimal maintenance. ABS-PC is lighter than aluminum for convenience during travel and less drag underwater. It allows shooting at depths up to 60m and is equipped with a vacuum valve that is installed standard on the side of the housing. The vacuum valve is designed to be a low profile to avoid interference with controls.
Its design allows you to access all the camera controls, except for diopter adjustment control, focus selector lock and the Fn and Pv buttons. The rotating controls are all operated intuitively via premium soft-touch knobs. An oversized, lobed knob puts the zoom/focus knob at your fingertips while your left-hand stays on the handle. Stainless steel, direct-drive rotating controls are virtually fail-safe and user-serviceable and adjustable in a pinch.
Ikelite 200DL has a slightly positive buoyancy in fresh water, weighs 2125 grams, and dimensions are 229 x 178 x 159 mm.
