PRESS RELEASE
 
Fantasea Line is pleased to announce that the new Nikon entry level DSLR D60 camera, which was announced at the recent PMA show in Las Vegas, is compatible with Fantasea’s FD-40X housing.
 
Fantasea’s full range of accessories for this housing will serve all FD-40X customers. The Fantasea FD-40X Housing Set features the FSB-800 Flash housing, and offers the most attractive and price competitive package in the DSLR housing market.


The FD-40X housing is rated to a depth of 200 feet (60m). The main seal between front and back halves is a gasket seal. The lens port attaches with a double O-ring seal for double protection. The camera “slides” into the FD-40X housing on a specially designed tray. Once inside the housing the stainless steel latching buckles on the back door are snapped shut, sealing the system with a sound watertight seal. The housing controls are made from stainless steel shafts and springs and are sealed by double O-rings as is the housing port. The control knobs and buttons are made of sturdy molded polycarbonate. The FD-40X flash sync port is a five-pin Nikonos type system which allows for full TTL coverage especially when using the Fantasea FSB800 Flash housing for the Nikon SB 800 Flash.

Prices are very attractive:

  • The FD-40X Housing is offered at an MSRP of $1099, which includes a one-year free Flood Insurance program from D.E.P.P.
  • The FD-40X and FSB-800 Set is offered at an MSRP of $1,499.
  • Due to the longer and improved 18-55mm VR Zoom lens, the FD-40X lens port allows for zoom extension 18-50mm with the D60 camera.
