Ikelite Press Release

Ikelite Underwater Housing for the Nikon D5200

Ikelite proudly announces a full-featured, TTL enabled underwater housing for the Nikon D5200 Digital SLR camera. The Ikelite housing is packed with standard features which complement the D5200’s upgraded sensor and image processing. The Ikelite housing is built by experienced divers in the USA and comes with unlimited access to Ikelite’s unparalleled customer support team.

Key Features:

• TTL Flash Exposure
More bang for your flash buck with the superior exposure, recycle time and reliability of hard-wired TTL flash. The camera’s built-in flash does not need to fire, providing the extended battery life and zero lag time between exposures. Ikelite proprietary circuitry allows direct communication between the camera and current Ikelite DS Substrobes* for the most accurate through-the-lens (TTL) metering control of an off-camera flash. Electrical bulkhead and TTL circuitry are provided standard and included in the base purchase price.

No more fiddling with tiny hard-to-read knobs. Exposure settings of a DS Substrobe can be viewed and adjusted quickly using two simple pushbuttons in the back of the housing. TTL mode provides four half-f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to fine tune exposure. Or control strobe output completely through the back of the housing using one of the 8 manual power settings provided in half-stop increments.

• Ergonomic handling
Controls are provided for all critical camera functions. Shutter, video recording start/stop, and a large zoom control knob can all be comfortably reached without removing your hands from the handles. Comfortable rubberized grips provide quick-release attachment points for strobes and accessories. The try and handles may be removed from the housing for convenience in traveling. The complete housing is neutral or slightly negative in freshwater depending on choice of lens port.

• Clearly Superior Design
A clear view of the camera and o-ring seals facilitates easy assembly and operation. Heavy-duty polycarbonate construction is durable and corrosion-free to ensure performance in the most demanding conditions. Lens ports can be removed and replaced quickly with a simple positive locking system which provides visible assurance when the housing is assembled properly.

• Glass optical viewfinder enhanced for underwater

• 200ft (60m) depth rating

• Lens zoom gears included with housing

• Made in USA

* Requires current model Ikelite DS Substrobe. Click here for strobe requirements by serial number. TTL circuitry does not operate with non-Ikelite strobes. Non-Ikelite strobes provide manual exposure only.

Wow this looks awesome - especially like the squid logo on the front. Is it guaranteed waterproof?
