Capture brilliant images at depths as great as 200' with IKELITE UNDERWATER HOUSING 200DL FOR NIKON D780, which features the Dry Lock Port Mount and a vacuum valve. An Ikelite bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional external strobes via sync cords. The use of an optional TTL hot shoe and the Nikon TTL Converter will allow for TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes; non-Ikelite strobes will still work in manual mode only.

 Construction Details

  • Depth rating of 200'
  • Made by hand in the USA from a 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 the water's surface
  • Clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls
  • Housing alone has nearly neutral buoyancy in freshwater, though your choice of lens and port may change the overall buoyancy of the system
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • The front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation and does not need to be removed for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • The mounting plate has a 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead connector with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of strobes
  • Optional #46056 DL1 DS Link Nikon TTL Converter and NT3 TTL Hot Shoe enable TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Retra, will still work in manual mode only
  • Older non-digital strobes can be used in manual mode
  • The housing ships without a required sync cord for a strobe
  • The bulkhead has been moved to the top of the enclosure to keep the cord out of your way and reduce strain on the ends
  • Ikelite's #4405 Optical Slave Converter and Aquatica's Water Wizard system are available options that will allow you to trigger wireless slave strobes

 Controls and Handling

  • Sensitive shutter and AF-On levers are curved and extendable to increase comfort when using an optional right-hand grip
  • A large, soft-touch zoom knob is located next to the grip handle
  • Push buttons have been modified to reduce weight and salt buildup
  • Ergonomic mechanical push buttons, dials, and levers afford access to all camera functions except for mode dial, lock release, diopter adjustment control, focus mode selector, focus selector lock, PV, and Fn
  • Control symbols are laser-etched into the back of the housing, so they won't fade or fall off with time
  • SuperEye Viewfinder enhances your view through the camera's OVF when you're wearing a mask
  • You can remove the SuperEye quickly if you'd like to attach the optional Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • Hard-anodized aluminum tray with left-hand quick-release grip improves balance and handling while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • The optional right-hand grip can be added easily
  • 1/4"-20 mounts and other mounting points enable connection to a tripod and the addition of accessories
  • The tray is lighter than Ikelite's previous model
  • Another 1/4"-20 threaded mount is located front and center on the housing above the port mount, allowing for the attachment of focus light, GoPro action camera, or another lightweight piece of equipment
  • The optional Cable Grip or Aluminum Top Handle can be added for easier carrying if you're using two strobes

 Lens Ports

  • Ships without a required lens port
  • Accepts all Ikelite Dry Lock (DL) dome and flat ports, allowing you to shoot with a wide variety of lenses
  • Zoom gears are available for many lenses
  • For complete compatibility details, see the port chart linked above
  • DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters
  • Provides added security against leaks at the surface thanks to the included vacuum valve that helps you check watertight integrity before the dive
  • Removal of excess air to create a vacuum requires #47011 Pump with Gauge
  • DL mount can be removed and replaced by the older FL (Four Lock) port locks, though this change would be irreversible unless you send the housing back to Ikelite to have the DL mount installed again
