We have designed the tailor-made CD 800 housing so that you can make full use of theNikon D800 under water, too.
Safety and key operability features as well as the most important functions have been ergonomically placed on the outside of the housing to allow fast and easy operation.
The possibility of connecting an HDMi monitor was realized in the best way possible.
As a result, it is very easy to view image sharpness in video mode using the monitor, too.

The CD800 housing features very small dimensions. Large O-rings, doubly sealed shafts and even quadruply sealed keys provide the highest degree of safety.
The camera is precision-guided along a special slide and fitted within the front part of the housing, thereby avoiding installation errors.
The camera does not need to be moved in order to swap memory cards. All flash units can be connected without synch leads via the fibre optics jack.
