Long promised, Light & Motion is showing their new Titan underwater housing for the Nikon D200, which looks like a real winner.
A departure from the previous D100 model, all of the Titan D200’s controls are located on the housing body itself. Even though the signature electronic handles are no longer present, all of the controls are still readily accessible while gripping the new handles with both hands…
CEO Barrett Heywood and Paul Barnett took me and Larry Tackett on a tour of the Titan D200’s features, which include:
- hybrid mechanical and electronic control
- camera body mounting tray. camera control via USB and 2 sync cords
- expansion bulkhead for TTL support
- sealed electronics for water resistance during flood
- both shutter and wheel are electronic with great haptic feedback
- adjustable handles
- LCD control display on back (exposure, mode, ROC, etc.)
- integrated game of pong. don’t let the D200 win!
- accessory 1:1 viewfinder
- check out Backscatter for more information on the D200 housing
I’ll admit it: I totally want one. It’s too bad I’m a Canon user!
Also on display were Light & Motion’s line of video housings and lighting.
