DESCRIPTION


Aquatica AD4 Underwater Housing with dual Nikonos bulkheads & Aqua View Magnified Viewfinder for Nikon D4 SLR Camera


Nikons flagship D4 camera is a professional imaging tool with equally impressive still and video capabilities. With customized controls, next-generation lens gear system and uncompromised viewing, Aquaticas new AD4 housing puts the D4s power into the hands of photographers shooting in the worlds most demanding underwater environments.

AD4 Highlights
  • Toggle access to Fn and Pv buttons
  • Smooth operation of all video controls
  • New lens gear system for improved video zooming -New camera tray works with a simple push tab -New left-hand quick lever for ISO access
  • Strobe connectors easily replaced in the field -Unparalleled durability and corrosion protection
Built Just for the D4
Aquatica has designed the ultimate housing for the D4, combining highly evolved ergonomics with features customized for Nikons most advanced SLR.

Aquatica was the first to offer access to the Fn and Pv controls. This is done via a unique toggle lever that accesses the two buttons and gives the photographer control over such things as the power aperture (Close + Open), index marking in video mode and also allows easy viewing of photo shooting information.

The AD4 is also optimized for video shooting, to take advantage of the D4s broadcast quality 1080p HD video functions. All video controls are designed for easy reach and smooth operation through the housing. This includes a next-generation lens gear system with a smaller housing pinion gear and a larger lens gear for smoother action while zooming in a video sequence.

A newly designed camera tray delivers smooth and precise positioning of the camera in the housing and allows the user to insert and remove the camera using a simple push tab. The zoom actuating pinion gear and the lens release lever also pull out so the camera can be removed from the back while keeping a lens and zoom gear attached.

Left-hand control buttons are angled and positioned for faster access to the various functions and a quick lever was added for the important ISO access. On the right hand the Live View lever has been relocated closer to your thumb. The multi- controller pad found on the Nikon D4 is made accessible with a simple and proven design and its SET button has been oversized. All push buttons are of high quality Type 304 stainless steel and operate smoothly for a natural feel and intuitive operation.

Three bulkhead access holes are provided to accept multiple external accessories such as our remote trigger (# 19304), Water Wizard external radio transceiver housing, external monitors and/or other accessories. Aquatica also boasts the most comprehensive selection of easily interchangeable strobe connectors in the industry. The 20069-NK includes two of the classic 5-pin Nikonos connectors and the 20069-KT is supplied with a time proven 5-pin Ikelite connector. Both versions are ready to accept currently available TTL converters. Aquatica standard strobe connectors are also now replaceable in the field without the need for specialized tools.

Proven Aquatica Performance
Aquaticas more than 30 years of expertise have helped craft the AD4s ergonomic design.

Its a design strongly influenced by professional image makers from around the world who work and consult with us. The result is an unparalleled attention to detail and expertly crafted solutions.

Aquatica housings include our own exceptional Galileo-type eye piece. This high quality and coated optical finder gives a bright and full view of the viewfinder. For those who need the ultimate in still image viewing, the optional Aqua View delivers second-to-none clarity; it provides the photographer with tack sharp corner to corner viewing for composing and critical focusing

The AD4 also retains our trademark molded gripsthe industry standard of comfort for the last 25 years. They are lightweight, and made of one piece so they never come unglued or corrode. Both grips have mounting holes ready to accept the popular mounting bracket of our TLC system and are compatible with most current strobes and lighting arms on the market. An extra mounting point for a focus/video light or other accessories is included on top of the housing and three additional mounting points are provided under the housing for various brackets, supports or tripods.

Of course, the AD4 housing is an integral part of one of the most established and comprehensive port and accessories system of the industry. Aquaticas port system has been a stable platform for more than 20 years and remains one of the most reliable and popular designs on the market.

The durability of Aquatica housings is legendary. The lightweight AD4 benefits from the finest material available in the metallurgic industry and is carefully crafted from a selected alloy of aircraft-grade aluminum. This housing still has the same standard 90m/300ft depth rating and can be upgraded to a 130m/425ft depth rating. Its knurled knobs and oversized controls mean easy operation in all conditions.

Every Aquatica housing is machined on the latest five-axis computer assisted machines. It then undergoes a protective anodizing process to the stringent North American Military Specifications. A baked on powder coating paint is then applied for a tough-as-nails exterior. Additional protection comes from corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes, provided standard with every housing. This additional level of protection is highly effective, as can be seen on some housings with more than 1,500 dives on them that still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box.
