Ikelite Nikon Z50 Housing (and accessories) during our underwater field tests
The Ikelite 200DL housing for the Nikon Z50 camera is a high quality polycarbonate underwater housing built from corrosion free ABS-PC blend material. This housing is designed to be used in a wide range of underwater environments including open ocean (60m depth rating), surf, pools, snorkeling, etc. The housing is compact and lightweight which makes it ideal for travel. Ikelite's new DL200 housings have excellent ergonomics with improved action on their buttons, properly designed lever placement (with optional lever extensions), and control placement that works great with cold water gloves. All necessary camera controls are available when using this housing.
We have used this housing on multiple dives with the Nikon Z50 and our staff love it! It's a great option if you're looking for one of the best APS-C cameras on the market for underwater photography. The price for the Nikon Z50 camera body is a steal when it comes to other competitors on the market. The fact that the camera is mirrorless means that you have edge-to-edge focus points, image review in the viewfinder, quicker AF in live view, the option to shoot with an LCD, and improved video. When combined with an Ikelite Z50 housing, the system is an excellent tool for taking professional grade photos. Just take a look at the ones we captured. And you won't be paying the price of a car like you might with a full frame underwater system! Yes, we know - the Z mount lens option for the Z50 aren't great....yet. But that doesn't matter when the FTZ adaptor works seamlessly with F mount glass and Ikelite's DL port system. So get some high quality F mount glass, and pair it with one of the world's top APS-C cameras and a reliable, made in the USA, Ikelite housing.
Vacuum System - The included vacuum valve allows you to pressurize the housing which gives you the assurance and peace of mind that your housing is fully sealed. The optional Ikelite Vacuum Pump with Gauge allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to check for leaks prior to entering the water.
M16 Accessory Port - A spare M16 accessory port provides an attachment point for third party accessories including HDMI bulkheads.
TTL Exposure - The housing supports both shooting in manual or with TTL. The included manual hotshoe with Ikelite ICS-5 bulkhead supports manual strobe exposure with a wide variety of strobes including Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Inon and others. The recommended Ikelite DL1 DS Link Nikon TTL Converter with the compatible Ikelite DS stobes provides a fast and accurate TTL exposure.
Control and Setup - The ergonomics on Ikelite housings is great. The shutter and AF-ON levers stand out with super sensitive and natural feeling curved levers. All push button controls are machined and hard anodized aluminum to reduce weight and resist salt build-up. The back of the housing is laser engraved with control symbols which will never fade or fall off. The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing.
Viewfinder - The housing includes the Super-Eye Viewfinder provides an enhanced view of the camera's optical viewfinder when viewed through a dive mask. The viewfinder removes quickly and easily for the attachment of an optional Straight Magnified Viewfinder (Type 1) or 45° Magnified Viewfinder (Type 3)
Strobe Connection - An external strobe can be connected via electrical sync cord or fiber optic cable
