Diving and watersports photo accessories manufacturer Fantasea Line has provided Wetpixel with first-release images and information about the upcoming FD-40 housing for the Nikon D-40 digital SLR.
Fantasea Line says:
These are the very first shots shown anywhere of our new FD-40 Housing. It is clearly a diving prototype which will be put underwater for the first time today in Eilat, Red Sea for a series of deep water testing. We have successfully chamber tested the unit to 250 ft so far.
Due out in mid-February, the FD-40 will retail for around $1099, and will come standard with a full-range zoom port and one year of flood insurance. The housing will have a 5-pin standard Nikonos-type sync port and will work in iTTL with Fantasea’s FSB-800 strobe housing.
The FD-40 will have a full range of accessory ports including macro, wide-angle, and fisheye. It is full function, with all controls accessible except for manual focus.
