The Sea & Sea MDX-D800 Housing is designed for the Nikon D800 Series SLR Cameras. Housing will accommodate the D800 or the D800E Nikon SLR Cameras. Every detail of the Housing is Precision-Machined from a Solid Aluminum-Alloy Block to achieve a High-Quality Texture and Design, the colored Anodization Strengthens the Housing making it Highly Corrosion and Abrasion Resistant. Almost all functions of the Nikon D88/D800E Cameras can be operated underwater (the Fn button located on the front of the camera is not supported).
The Housing Buttons are Angled for Ease-of-Use and Enhanced Functionality. All Buttons are Mechanical Controls like Levers and Dials, as well as buttons. The D800 / D800E's built-in flash can be activated or disabled. Every Button is Equipped with a Luminous Sticker, making it Easy-to-See when diving in Low Light Conditions. Housing is designed so you can have both hands on the Ergonomic Grips, allowing you to reach such controls as the Main Command Dial and the Sub-Command Dial for Manual Photography, as well as Video Controls.
The Housing comes with a 0.5x Optical Viewfinder. Other Interchangeable Viewfinders are optional (sold separately). These include the VF180 and (SKU: SSVF45) VF45 1.2x Viewfinders, which Increase Magnification by 1.2x, allowing you to see the Entire Field of View. The Housing is Compatible with the line of interchangeable NX Series Ports from Sea & Sea (sold separately). Various Ports are available to accommodate Macro, Wide-Angle and Zoom Lenses. Dual Fiber-Optic Cable Sockets are available on the Housing, permitting the attachment of an L-Type Cable so that you can fire an external strobe by the light of your camera's built-in flash (cable and strobe sold separately see SKU: SSFOL). There's also a sync cord connector cap, which can be removed to install the optional Sync Cord 2-Pin Connector (see SKU: SS2PSC) or YS Converter/N 5-Pin Connector (#50123) (sold separately) for strobes, via the Sync Connector set and 5-Pin Strobe Connector set (sold separately). Wired TTL Flash Exposure is possible with the YS Converter (#50117) (sold separately).
Housing is equipped with an accessory port for HDMI output which allows you to view images and video on an external monitor like the Sony CLM-V55--provided the monitor, too, is tucked safely into a housing, such as the Wahoo HD. There's also a tripod socket, which is centrally located on the bottom of the MDX-D800. A quick shoe makes the camera easy to install and remove from the housing. The Housing is Depth Rated to 330' (100 meters) measures (W x H x D) 13.7" x 8.3" x 5.6" (34.9 x 21.0 x 14.1 cm) and weighs approximately 6.17 lbs (2.8 kg).
