Ceratosoma brevicaudatum Aquatica Digital AD500 Housing with Aquatica Digital mini macro port & ACU +5 wet lens, Nikon D500 Camera & Nikkor 60mm F2.8 Micro Lens
Well what can I say? Aquatica Digital has yet again improved their latest model of water housing for the Nikon D500, and it compliments this amazing new camera perfectly! As a regular user of Aquatica Digital products and an engineer I am well aware of the amount of thought, research and refined detail that goes into all of their robust products. Each housing is designed using the latest 3D design modelling software so they can eek out any teething problems even before production begins. They are then individually precision CNC machined from a solid block of high grade marine aluminium, powder coated black and fitted with marine stainless steel controls for complete command of the camera inside. Two zinc anodes further protect the entire housing from corrosion of any kind, even in the hands of the most neglectful user. The handles are ergonomically designed to fit snuggly in your palms with deep contoured grooves for your fingers ensuring a secure grip; they are also made from tough plastic which I really like. This is because I find myself shooting in cold water quite a lot and metal handles soon sap the warmth from your fingers!
