Aquatica Introduces New Nikon D-40X Housing
By Jason Heller, August 16, 2007 @ 02:00 AM (EST)


Part of new line of products aimed at recreational divers

AQUATICA is proud to introduce its new housing for the Nikon D40x camera. This exciting product is part of a new line of AQUATICA underwater camera housings that are designed and built for newer, smaller and less expensive digital SLR cameras, making high quality underwater photography more affordable for the recreational diver.

Made of anodized aluminum and machined to exacting specifications, the new D40X housing was crafted with the user in mind. It features all of the controls favored by professionals in a compact (H 6” x W 6.9” x D 5” or 154mm X 176mm X 127mm) and easy-to-use design. Built around AQUATICA’s well established bayonet port system, these new AQUATICA housings will accommodate all current ports, extensions and gears. As well Aquatica is reintroducing its 6” dome port and has created a newer and more compact macro port for both this new housings and its current line of well established housings.

The AQUATICA’s robust aluminum construction also means no warping or twisting, which can affect the controls when diving the deeper part of the recreational diving limit. In addition, our acclaimed Aqua View Finder, along with many other accessories, is fully compatible with these newer housings.

Some of the additional features of the AQUATICA D40X housing include:

Simple to assemble design for the traveling diver

  2. Quick response zoom control to allow selection of the lens focal length.
