Hi,
I am working on S&S d200 housing right now but, having problem. It is not like Nexus
or Subal housing. I've done new base plate & camera seat properly inside housing & lenses
are centered. On/off switch & front dial works fine. On back cover, left side control is VERY
difficult to make it work. Back window is small you cannot see full screen. backdial will work.

Which means, You can do;
On/Off
Change EV compensation
ISO change
Mode change
F-stop change
Shutter time change
Picture Review
c-s-m change

You cannot do;
Menu change during diving(you set your camera such as raw, raw+jpg before diving)
selecting focus point (jog dial will be centered & locked)
and you can only see 70% of lcd screen

I will post more info when finalized.

Sam,

thanks for sharing that. Could you show pictures of modified tray?
Even better, will you offer one for sale?
This should work the same for D300s I guess :)

Hi,
After I try several times, I finally came to the point to stop the work
& I no longer have housing. It is NOT like Nexus or Subal housing modification
& simply S&S makes housing so tight & no extra room to play with.
Sorry for th bad news.

Ah well, I'll wait for the D400 then. Unless anyone from Sea and Sea is listening!

Many thanks for your efforts on this Sam, we appreciate it.
