Description

Capture images and Full HD video at 200' beneath the surface with your Nikon D5500 DSLR camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. Mechanical controls afford access to all important camera functions.

The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with dual quick-release handles, which improve balance and give you attachment points for optional lighting arms. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and the camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.

The housing is shipped without a required lens port and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various lenses. For compatibility, see Port Finder and Charts. Additionally, the optional Straight and 45-Degree Magnified Optical Viewfinders enhance your view through your camera's OVF and provide greater long-term comfort.
