Features

Compatible with both the VF180 1.2x and VF45 1.2x viewfinders
By attaching the VF180 or the VF45 prism viewfinder (magnification ratio of 1.2x) to a SEA&SEA housing, the magnification increases by 1.2x and entire field of view can be seen at the same time. Recommended for users committed to strict composition and focusing.

Two Fiber-optic cable sockets
Simply by connecting the Fiber-Optic Cable (L-type) to the connector, the light of the digital camera’s built-in flash is detected and connected to an external strobe. This is considerably less complicated than setting up an electrical connector that requires detailed knowledge. It also eliminates any risks involved when the connector is submerged in water.

Realizes comfortable manual operation
Fully strove for a unique structure where the main command dial and subcommand dial can be reached easily. As a result, achieved a structure in which the sub-command dial was moved even closer to the grip than in previous models by adjustment of the chassis inside the housing. Can adjust the shutter / aperture in a snap while holding the grip. With just the right amount of clearance that can't be found anywhere else, this design realizes high hold to ensure an ideal shooting position.
    • Compact durable design
    • YS converter connector employed as standard. When using a YS Converter/N to enable the TTL auto adjustment, use a 5-pin Sync Cord/N to connect it to a genuine SEA&SEA strobe.
    • Controls almost all of the Nikon D300s essential functions underwater.
    • Every detail of the housing is precision machined from a solid aluminum block to achieve a high-quality texture and design. All edges have been polished carefully for safety.
    • The housing is protected by a highly corrosion resistant, anodized coating. The coating protects the housing from environmental corrosion and abrasions.
    • Features a slanted (sideways) button on the back with an original structure. For balancing even more active functionality and styling in high dimension.
    • Furnished with a tripod socket in the central region of the bottom surface of the main body.  If you remove the attached Ergo Grip, you can also add an optional Grip-Stay L.
    • Comes standard with two bulkhead connectors: one type-N connector (2-pin wired for manual) and one 5-pin wired connector (for dedicated TTL).
    • Equipped with a Optical Viewfinder 0.5x standard. Interchangeable 0.66x/0.8x viewfinders (optional) are also available.
    • The quick shoe makes the camera easy to install and remove from the housing.
    • A built-in leak sensor immediately alerts you to any water leakage.
    • Strong and durable build, with a depth rating of up to 60m / 200ft.
    • *The MDX-D300s housing comes from the factory with these type-N connectors: one 2-pin wired connector and one 5-pin wired connector. *To use two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes with the factory-equipped type-N connectors, you must use the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N.
