A full featured and durable waterproof housing for Nikon COOLPIX S9900 cameras. Suitable for scuba, snorkel, surf, pool, and any application in or around the water.
Capture vibrant images and video of sting rays, parrot fish, and coral at 200' beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX S9900 camera in this Ikelite Underwater Housing.
External lighting is more powerful than your camera's built-in flash, but your flash can be used to trigger an optional, external AF35 AutoFlash strobe as a wireless slave, replicating TTL exposure (except when using external accessory lenses). As an alternative, two fiber-optic ports are provided for connecting optional cables. The housing also includes a diffuser to soften your built-in flash and a deflector to redirect the light towards an external strobe. This added lighting will provide greater color accuracy and vibrancy, and it can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate backscatter, glare, and hard shadows.
Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed by hand, and tested in the USA. A corrosion-resistant, clear polycarbonate and acrylic body offers a full view of the camera, allowing you to monitor the O-ring seal to ensure correct waterproof installation. Large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except flash pop-up control (flash must be extended prior to installation). The bottom tray mount allows for secure attachment of optional external trays with standard 1/4"-20 hardware.
The housing's built-in, flat glass lens port has a 3.9" diameter. Since light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water, optional color-correction filters can be added to enhance colors below the surface. The port also accepts optional external lenses, to allow an increased field of view or extreme close-up shots with better clarity and detail, respectively.
For close-ups, use Ikelite's optional external macro adapter 9306.82 with optional 67mm threaded macro lenses from Inon and Epoque. Wide-angle coverage requires Ikelite's optional WD-4 wide-angle conversion dome 6430.4. Approximately three-fourths of the camera's zoom range can be used with the dome in place; however, slight vignetting may occur at camera's widest angle setting. This effect can be eliminated by zooming in slightly or cropping the image in post processing. Other accessory lenses and adapters are not compatible with this housing.
