DESCRIPTION


Ikelite 200ft Underwater Housing with Four Lock Port Mount for Nikon D500 DSLR Camera



Product Highlights

  • Extra-large, soft touch zoom knob next to the left handle
  • Four Lock (FL) Port System is compatible with legacy ports and makes it quick and easy to change lenses
  • Flash bulkhead connector for manual exposure with most popular underwater strobes
  • ABS-PC and Lexan construction is fundamentally corrosion-resistant
  • Made in the USA
  • Each housing is individually inspected for fit and water pressure tested to 200' (60m)
  • Includes a balanced aluminum base with left-hand quick release handle
  • 1 year limited warranty

Lenses

  • Accepts any Ikelite FL-series port to accommodate most popular zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses
  • Zoom is accessible for many lenses using Ikelite's unique universal zoom gear system
  • Dome ports are recommended for wide angle and zoom lenses under water
  • Flat ports are recommended for macro close-up lenses

Lighting

  • Included Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hotshoe for reliable electrical triggering of underwater strobes
  • Optional TTL hotshoe and Nikon TTL Converter (Product number 4301.3) provide TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes

Ergonomics

  • The back is completely clear for an unobstructed view of the camera and o-ring seal
  • Control symbols are laser etched into the back and will never fade or rub off
