Housing for Nikon D3s

We have designed the precision-fit CD 3s housing so as to provide full use for the Nikon D3s under water, too. Maximum safety, ease of operation and minimal dimensions are the hallmark of this CD3s housing. Large O-rings, double seal shafts and keys sealed even fourfold guarantee the maximum safety possible. Precision-guided on a special slide, the camera is introduced into the front part of the housing. Installation errors can therefore be excluded. To replace the memory card the camera does not need to be moved.
