Capture sharp, detailed photos and video at depths as great as 200' beneath the surface with IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR NIKON D500. The back can be swapped out for an optional 50' back if you're looking for something lighter in weight and slightly smaller, and you aren't venturing down a great distance below the surface. An Ikelite bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes. Using an optional TTL hot shoe and the #4301.3 Nikon TTL Converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.

  • Actual buoyancy varies depending on the choice of lens and port

Construction Details

  • Depth rating of 200'
  • The back can be swapped out for an optional 50' back
  • Made by hand in the USA from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend
  • White on the front, top, sides, and bottom to reflect sunlight and keep the camera cool when shooting on or above water's surface
  • Clear in back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in freshwater
  • Open-groove design suspends rear O-ring in a natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring
  • The camera mounting plate enables quick installation and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Use of external strobe highly recommended for color-correction and adequate brightness, and basically essential once you descend further than 15-20' underwater
  • Strobe restores hues that get absorbed by water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from the subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional, external strobes
  • Optional TTL hot shoe and Nikon TTL Converter #4301.3 enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, will still work in manual mode only
  • Housing ships without required sync cord for strobe

Controls and Handling

  • Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, knurled knobs/dials, and levers
  • Controls afford access to virtually all camera functions: shutter release, power, movie recording, sub-command dial, exposure compensation, ISO, mode button, white balance, metering, BKT button, lens release button, AF-ON, main command dial, multi selector, info, live view selector, Lv button, I button, playback, delete, menu, key/? button, magnify/reduce, OK, and Fn2
  • Supplied aluminum tray with left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling while offering an attachment point for optional lighting arm
  • Sensitive, redesigned trigger lever is extendable for comfortable use when holding optional right-hand quick-release grip
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob located next to grip handle
  • Control symbols are laser-etched into the back of the housing, so they won't fade or fall off with time

Lens Port System

  • Accepts all Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) series dome and flat ports for a broad array of zoom, macro, and wide-angle lenses
  • Zoom gears are available for many lenses
  • Complete port chart with full details coming soon
  • DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters
  • Provides added security against leaks at the surface--thanks in large part to included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before dive
  • Pump required in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum
