Description

Capture brilliant images at depths as great as 200' with your Nikon Z7 Mirrorless Digital Camera in Ikelite's 200DL Underwater Housing, which features their Dry Lock Port Mount and vacuum valve. An Ikelite bulkhead with a manual hot shoe connection enables reliable electrical triggering of optional external strobes via sync cords. Using 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.

Ergonomic mechanical controls, including push-buttons, dials, and levers, afford access to all essential camera functions. Built for durability, the enclosure is made in the USA from a corrosion-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic blend. It is white on the front, top, sides, and bottom, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain your view of the camera's rear controls. The supplied aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm.

The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts various, interchangeable dome and flat ports for a broad array of lenses. For full compatibility details, see the port chart. The DL port system accommodates lenses with large diameters, and provides added security against leaks at the surface, thanks in large part to the included vacuum valve for checking watertight integrity before the dive. You'll need to pick up the required pump in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum.

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
  • Nearly neutral buoyancy in fresh water
  • Open-groove design suspends the rear O-ring in the natural position, allowing for easier maintenance and preventing accidental twisting or stretching
  • Front-loading mounting plate enables quick camera installation, and does not need to be removed in order for you to gain battery or memory card access
  • 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 DL1 DS Link TTL Converter #46054 enables TTL operation with compatible Ikelite DS strobes
  • DL1 supports rear curtain synchronization and allows exposure compensation to be adjusted using the control in the camera
  • Non-Ikelite strobes, such as those from Sea & Sea, INON, and Nikonos, will still work in manual mode only

CONTROLS AND HANDLING:

  • Shutter and AF-ON (back-button focus) levers are curved and extendable for comfortable use when holding the optional right-hand quick-release grip
  • Extra-large, soft-touch zoom knob is located next to the grip handle
  • All push-button controls are machined and hard anodized aluminum to reduce weight and resist salt build-up
  • Ergonomic mechanical push-buttons, dials, and levers afford access to all camera functions except: joystick up/down/left/right, Fn1, Fn2, diopter adjustment dial, or DOF button
  • 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 separately sold Straight or 45° Magnified Viewfinder instead
  • Hard-anodized aluminum tray with a left-hand quick-release grip affords improved balance and handling, while offering an attachment point for an optional lighting arm
  • 1/4"-20 mounts and other mounting points enable connection to a tripod and the addition of accessories
  • Another 1/4"-20 threaded mount is located front and center on the housing above the port mount, allowing for the attachment of a focus light, GoPro action camera, or other lightweight piece of equipment
  • Optional Cable Grip or Aluminum Top Handle can be added for easier carrying if you're using 2 strobes

LENS PORT SYSTEM:

  • 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 in large part to the included vacuum valve that helps you check watertight integrity before the dive
  • #47011 pump is required in order to remove excess air and actually create a vacuum
