Aquatica D7200/7100 Features:

Optical Fiber Strobe Connections: Options include optical ports for Sea & Sea® or INON® type connectors. 
 
Internal camera flash access: A flash up button on the housing is provided to release the flash and a lever to set it back down. This allows the user to quickly shutdown the internal flash for ambient light images and easily returns to flash photography with the push of a button.
 
Classic electrical connections: Option includes the Nikonos ® or Ikelite ® standard connectors. 
 
In essence, as far as underwater strobe connectivity, this housing is the most flexible in the industry. It will accept the largest variety of strobe on the market and dedicated housing for flashes and radio transmitter such as the Water Wizard.
 
Bayonet Port: A positive four point bayonet mounting and a locking mechanism leaves no doubt that your ports and extension rings are secured in place and are water tight on the housing. Larger dome port can benefit of the extra security provided by the #18469 Extension To Port Locking Collar. The bayonet system dome ports, macro ports, and extension rings offer a fast and efficient access to the lens for changing without having to remove the camera from the housing. This housing allows use of lenses from a 4.5mm/180 degrees fisheye lens to a 200mm macro lens. Accepting teleconverter and diopter is also possible due to our flexible Port Extension system.
 
Controls & Menus: The housing provides access to all the camera menus and video controls including On-Off, Live View mode, Record On/Off, ISO lever, Exposure Mode, Bracketing, Meter positioning and focus control, and AF activation and lock. Access to all of the menu’s features include enlarge and delete, histogram and internal SLR preferences, and a quick access and conveniently angled review button. Buttons on the left hand side have been angled 20 degrees and are extended where necessary for better ergonomics. Knobs are grooved and knurled for optimum operation when wearing thick gloves and the multi controller pad of the camera has been reproduced for faster and easier handling.
 
Hydrophone: The housing can be equipped with a unique hydrophone for recording ambient sound underwater when shooting in the video mode.
 
Viewing Eye Piece: The most critical aspect of underwater SLR photography is the viewing system. In this aspect our housing uses a viewfinder that shows the biggest and the brightest image possible with full frame view. Two accessory Aqua View Finders are also available, giving the user unparalleled viewing of the camera's viewfinder for sharp focusing and exact composition.

The D7200 Camera:

Nikon recently introduced an updated version of the venerable D7100. The D7200 using the same body and build quality but featuring some internal changes, which includes a faster processor, a larger buffer for continuous shooting, improved low light autofocus performance and a battery life capacity that has improved more than 15%. Featuring a 24.2MP CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter, pulling the best result in resolution. With an ISO range of 100-25600, an improved autofocus system that can now focus down to -3ev.

Of special interest to us, underwater photographers, are the following improvements: A large viewfinder with 100% coverage, and given that most of us shoot in RAW mode, so will the improved capacity of the buffer. Video in crop mode is 1080/60p, and combined with the low light capacity of the sensor, the outstanding choice of DX lenses and extended life management of the battery.

The Aquatica D7200/7100 Housing:

The Aquatica AD7200/7100 housing is made from carefully selected aluminum and Stainless Steel alloys, the same grade as used in the aerospace industry. It is machined on the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines available, and is protected by anodizing it to North American military specification. While anodizing will protect the housing from the environment, it will fade and discolour if left exposed to the elements, to prevent this, and for further protection, Aquatica provides corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes as standard equipment and coats their housings with a baked on, tough as nails, powder coating. This extra level of protection makes a huge difference, as exemplified by Aquatica housings with over 1,500 dives on them that still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box. To see the whole process, visit our How It’s Made page on this website.

The Aquatica D7200/7100 Ergonomics:

The rear button array on the left hand side is angled at 15 degrees for ease of access, and the Multi Controller assembly has been redesigned to feel more natural. This very important control is accessed via 5 individual buttons on the camera body, giving the user an intuitive feel when going through menus or when reviewing images. Frontal controls benefit from a newly designed 3 spring arrays, ensuring smooth precise operation of the crucial shutter release, video record and exposure compensation levers. Transmission of the aperture value is through an accurate belt system.
 
No matter what the diving conditions are, you remain in control of the situation with the Aquatica AD7100. The thickest of cold water gloves or the smallest of bare hands will not be hindered by the layout. All functions are clearly identified with permanent pad printed paint for quick visual identification and to eliminate the frustration of searching for relocated controls.
