Seacam Unveils Housing for the Nikon Z9
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, December 12, 2022 @ 09:30 AM (EST)

After showing off their new housing for the Nikon Z9 at various dive shows, including DEMA, Seacam has now updated its website with full product shots of the latest addition to their Silver range of housings. Known for producing the highest-quality imaging gear for the demanding professional, the Austrian manufacturer mills its housings from a saltwater-proof light metal alloy that is twice hardened and anodized, and the two housing shells are secured with Seacam’s titanium Safety Lock fastening system. As you’d expect, premium materials are used throughout, including stainless steel and anodized aluminum buttons and dials, which offer full control over the camera’s functions.

Depth-rated to 260 feet, the housing features removeable integrated handles and a large window for viewing the camera’s LCD. As well as making use of the latest Z-mount lenses, you also have the option of using F-mount lenses via Nikon’s FTZ adapter. The housing can be configured with S6 or N5 bulkheads for reliable electrical strobe triggering, and you have the option of connecting a monitor/recorder via HDMI. Seacam’s optical-acoustic leak detector is fitted as standard, with the vacuum valve and pump purchased separately.

The Seacam housing for the Z9 is available from retailers such as Backscatter, where it is priced at $6400.

The mirrorless Nikon Z9 full-frame camera is clearly a new class of the cult brand. Of course, we made the housing to match: ergonomic, practical and robust as always. All important features for underwater photography are accessible and arranged intuitively – a fully equipped SEACAM silver housing of the professional class, leaving nothing to be desired in terms of equipment and handling.

Our matching SEACAM silver Nikon Z9 housing now gives you unrestricted use and top performance under water.
