Please purchase the newer Ikelite housing for D7200 / D7100 instead for the same price.
Part # 6801.71
Rather than reaching out to your external strobe, exposure with a current DS Substrobe can be adjusted quickly through the back of the housing using a large dial control. TTL mode provides four 1/3 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 7 manual power settings provided in half-stop increments.
* 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.
Please note that this is for the housing only and that ports are sold separately. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 310-633-5052 for advice and help.
I purchased the Ikelite for my Nikon D7100 for a trip I was doing in August 2014 to photograph migrating Whale Sharks in Mexico. I have extensive experience photographing wildlife above water in Africa, Alaska and throughout the US but limited underwater. I dove in 2012 off Guadeloupe Island with the Great Whites using a smaller setup I purchased through BlueWater for a Canon S95. It was an amazing trip and the photos captured the sharks but I missed the functionality of my Nikon. After researching all available options I decided on the Ikelite. The main drivers for my decision were the clear housing (I have lost equipment to water leaks in the past) and the cost relative to many other options. All buttons and dials were easily accessible and the additional ports needed for various lenses were also reasonably priced. The trip was incredible and although we encountered very rough seas from nearby tropical storms, snorkeling and photographing these giants was inspirational. It will be an annual stop.
As for the housings performance it worked flawlessly, No leaks! It takes getting use to working with bigger underwater rigs and when in the water tracking and trying to swim in front of your targets to get the right shots, it can add to the exhaustion factor, but that would be with any setup. The water was not as clear as I would have liked from the storms and no strobes are allowed. That, coupled with my inexperience underwater, lead to less than I had hoped for in photo quality but no fault of the equipment. Looking forward to my next underwater adventure.
