I have an older MDX-d7100 housing and a ‘modification’ is needed for it to work with a d7200. Has to do with mode dial lock button.
Do you know what the modification is? And is it something that can be done DIY, without sending it to Sea&Sea or Backscatter?
Thanks- David

IMHO, D7100 and D7200 is identical as far as camera housing is concerned. I used D7200 in D7100 housing several years, without any problem.

That been said, if you are changing camera mode from M to A or P (or vise verse) in underwater, you might consider mode dial lock option.
