The clear polycarbonate case is contoured to the camera, durable, and completely corrosion free. Unlike aluminum housings there is a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, camera controls, and dry inside. Mechanical controls are kept water-tight with Ikelite pioneered Quad-Ring seal glands—proven to be the most reliable method of sealing controls. The housing is fully functional to a depth rating of 200 feet (60m). The housing is only slightly negative in salt water depending on choice of lens port.

Controls are provided through the housing for every camera function except focus selector lock, metering selector, diopter adjustment control, and flash pop-up button. Stay depressed control operates the White Balance, ISO and Dual functions on top left of camera body. AE/AF lock button can be activated with your thumb while holding the handle. A large zoom control knob can be comfortably reached without removing your hand from the handle.
A full range of dome and flat ports accommodate most macro, wide angle and zoom lenses. The standard port line offers compact and affordable options without sacrificing quality. Themodular system offers maximum versatility and performance with interchangeable 8" dome and flat port assemblies. Port attachment is quick and easy with a simple locking system and the port o-ring seal is clearly viewed through the housing. Lens ports sold separately. See the Port Chart for a listing of most popular Nikon-mount lenses.
The Super-Eye magnifier comes standard and offers enhanced visibility of the camera's viewfinder while wearing a diving mask. The camera's large LCD screen can be clearly viewed through the back of the housing. A stay-depressed control unlocks the mode wheel for access of the live preview feature.
