Sea&Sea DX-D80 Underwater Housing Review
 December 14, 2007 @ 02:00 AM (EST)
Our good friends at LetsGoDigital have posted an interesting review on the Sea & Sea DX-D80 housing (written by Karin Brussaard)...
The Sea & Sea DX-D80 is a professional underwater housing, but because it is very easy to use the beginner underwater photographer can use it as well. It is quite robust; it can be taken down up to 60 meters. Without the digital SLR camera it weighs 2700 grams, which is still quite heavy. Luckily it is easy to handle, and because of the neutral weight underwater, you do not notice that it is heavy. The back of the underwater housing is made of polycarbonate and the front is made of corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy, for maximal stiffness and a solid grip. It is too bad that it is not made completely of aluminium, because this makes it more robust.

Sea&Sea DX-D80 Underwater Housing Review
The underwater housing that I have the pleasure of working with is the Sea & Sea DX-D80 with an accompanying NX-fisheye dome port. The flashes are operated via an external TTL-converter, which is developed by Sea&Sea especially for Nikon cameras. The TTL-converter is equipped with a built-in TTL PCB which communicates between the Nikon digital SLRs and the Sea&Sea flashes from the YS-series. The underwater housing is comfortable to handle. An ergonomic hand grip ensures that even small hands can operate the camera easily.

The Tiger shark "attack" part is pretty funny. A little sensationalized, but not too bad. Great shot of the Tiger with the housing in his mouth.
