Aquatica Nikon D850 Underwater Housing


After the long wait, the succesor of the D810 has been released!  The Aquatica housing is lightweight, 12% lighter than its predecessors D800 and D810 housings but still has the same standard 90m/300ft depth rating and can still be upgraded to 130m/425ft.  Controls have great ergonomic design placing the vital controls where they are most needed, right at your finger tips.

Aquatica D850 Housing Features:

New Self-Aligning Controls

One of the design improvements that Aquatica did to the housing is the new Self-Aligning Controls. The lens release, auto-focus mode and FN1 button were moved to the camera saddle allowing the user to slide in the camera without pulling any levers.  Aside from that, the on/off lever and live view selector are now spring loaded.


The housing was designed to have the following controls right at your finger tips. 

  • Shutter
  • Front dial wheel & Rear dial wheel
  • ISO -  You can change the ISO without taking your finger off the trigger.
  • WB
  • AF-On - allows all users, even those with smaller hands to simultaneously activate the AF-On and the shutter. This new lever has now been positioned ½ an inch lower and 1 ¼ inch to the front, as compared to previous models. 
  • Exposure compensation
  • Info
  • Live View
  • D-pad

Surveyor Monitoring System

The Aquatica AD850 housing comes standard with a Surveyor monitoring sensor. This sensor acts as a moisture alarm and with the addition of a vacuum extracting valve an pump, be used for constantly monitoring the seal integrity of the housing, adding another level of safety and peace of mind.
