Housing for Nikon D500

Create impressive images with the groundbreaking D500, underwater too, inside the new CD 500 housing

The new SEALUX CD 500 housing made for the sporty Nikon D500 allows both taking photos as well as shooting videos.
Now the digital reflex camera Nikon D500 with its supreme ease of handling can fully show its capabilities under water, too.
The new camera slide was made to facilitate the fitting of the camera inside the housing. The handgrip is mounted at the front and can be adjusted!

We have designed the tailor-made CD 500 housing so that you can make full use of the Nikon D500 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 CD500 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.



Made of seawater resistant aluminium, CNC milled out of a monoblock, anodized in black, in addition powder coated on the outside for an extra well resistant surface. The housing features a T-piece ( to mount a flash arm) and an M6 threat where you can fix for example a pilot lamp on top of the housing or to fix our 5" HDMI-Monitor for relaxed filming underwater.
An exchange of the storage card is possible with installed camera. Minimal dimensions and weight. Excellent taring with all ports.
In the basic version, the housing comes with our LD-Viewfinder.
Ports must be ordered separately.
