Ikelite Underwater Housing for Nikon P7000

Dive into underwater photography with this compact true TTL camera system. The Compact Digital housing is high quality, extremely durable, and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence.

Proprietary conversion circuitry allows two-way communication between the camera and Ikelite Substrobes providing true Nikon TTL exposure. In addition to providing the most accurate automatic exposure, this ensures a faster recycling time and longer camera battery life as compared to fiber optic TTL systems. Take advantage of this powerful feature by attaching any current model Ikelite DS Substrobe. See the "External Underwater Strobes" section for complete details.

All camera controls except Fn (FUNC) Button, Lens Ring Release Button and Diopter Adjustment Control are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200ft (60m).

Includes one 1cc tube of silicone lubricant, flash diffuser, flash deflector and vinyl port cover.

Size and Weight.
  • 7.5" wide x 6.5" high x 6.5" deep including controls and lens port.
  • 19cm x 16cm x 16cm.
  • 5.25lb (2.38kg) above water.
  • Slightly negative buoyancy in fresh water.
Camera's Built-in Flash.
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.

External Color Filters.
Color filters replace some of the reds, oranges and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost underwater. Effective in relatively shallow, sunny conditions. Available as #6441.46 for tropical blue water and #6441.86 for use in green water settings. For optimum results use in combination with manual white balance (see camera user guide for information on setting custom white balance).

Trays with Release Handles.
The included tray and release handle offers balance and exceptional handling while providing a convenient attachment point for optional Substrobe mounting arms. Strobe arms can be released easily at the touch of a button whether above or below water. The optional Dual Handle and Tray assembly provides even greater stability and allows for the addition of a second Substrobe or video light.

External Underwater Strobes (Hard-Wired TTL).
Ikelite DS series Substrobes are industry favorites for their warm, even coverage and lightning fast recycle time. Unlike fiber-optic "TTL" systems, our conversion circuitry eliminates the need for the camera's built-in flash to fire. This dramatically improves recycle time and camera battery life allowing you to take more photos more quickly. We recommend convenient and affordable strobe with sync cord packages that provide everything you need to take advantage of true TTL exposure.

All current model DS strobes are fully compatible with this TTL system. Older DS50 or DS125 Substrobes may require circuitry updates.

Non-Ikelite External Strobes.
Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea. Non-Ikelite strobes can be used in manual modes only. Use of a non-Ikelite strobe bypasses the housing's built-in TTL circuitry.

Strobes with a slave feature can be triggered by the camera's flash or by an Ikelite Substrobe. An included flash deflector prevents the camera's flash from creating backscatter in the image.

The optional #9571.3 features a 1" (2.5cm) ball for attachment to the top of the release handle. This provides a mounting point for Ultralight, TLC, and other non-Ikelite arm systems.

Lighting Options for Video Recording.
Light is essential to bringing out the vibrancy and colors of underwater life in your video. Several options are available to add a video light to this system:

The DS161 Movie Substrobe combines the warm, even coverage of our famous Substrobe DS160 with a powerful 500 lumen movie light. This is a perfect way to add performance without adding bulk.
