Ikelite ULTRAcompact digital housings for Nikon digital still cameras really deliver when performance and durability matter. The ULTRAcompact housing is high quality, built to last, and backed by Ikelite's long-standing reputation for excellence. All camera controls are fully functional through the housing and depth rated to 200ft (60m). Easy open latch and drop in camera loading make set-up a breeze. Housings measure 6" (15.2cm) wide; 4.4" (11cm) high including controls; 3.4" (8.6cm) deep including port. Camera and housing together weigh under 1.5 lbs (0.66kg) above water and are nearly neutral underwater.

Camera's Built-in Flash: 
An included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results an external underwater strobe is recommended.

External Colour Filters: 
Replace some of the reds and more natural tones that would otherwise be lost. Available as #6441.32 for tropical blue water and #6441.72 for green water. Filters are effective in shallow, sunny conditions depending on water clarity.

External Underwater Strobes: 
Ikelite strobes are much more powerful, recycle more quickly, and eliminate more backscatter than the camera's built-in flash. The AutoFlash AF35 is the easiest and most affordable way to add a strobe to your system. Don't settle for flat, blue-green images. The AF35 is effective up to approximately 5 feet (1.5m) from the subject and restores the colours that are otherwise lost. For the best results in all conditions.

External Accessory Lenses: 
An external wide angle conversion lens increases angle of coverage so you can get much closer to your subject while still fitting everything in the frame. By reducing the amount of water between the subject and your camera lens, the resulting image will be more crisp and colourful. Several options are available for attaching external wide angle or macro lenses;
· Attach 46mm threaded W-20 and other lenses directly to the front of the housing port.
· Attach 67mm threaded W-20, Inon Type II, and Epoque lenses using the #9306.81 port adapter. 
· Attach Bayonet style Inon UWL-100 28AD, UWL-105AD and UFL-165AD lenses using the #9306.79 port adapter.
Minimal vignetting (shading in the corners) may be present in the widest setting when using an external accessory lens. This can be eliminated by zooming in slightly.
