Thanks for the update and glad to hear that the camera is working for you. Please let us know after you've shot it in some more different lighting conditions as to whether you notice a difference between the 810 and the E.

Gracias!

I have no idea if it is Sea&Sea original but I think so. Price is around €400 I think. Email them and ask.

I suggest you choose Nexus in the future since its housing is upgradable, like this:

Yes it is a Sea&Sea update kit. I got half of the mounting instructions for the last week and got the rest yesterday and they came from Sea&Sea Japan.

The kit was easy to fit and after reading the instructions carefully and getting ll the necessary tools. 

The Nikon D810 works perfect will all it's functions.

I have to say that once I started using D810 I will never choose to put my D800E back in the housing again :) It will serve as a top side and backup camera...

Reef told me the Nauticam kit was discontinued.

 

"The kit was discontinued due to all new features of the D810 not being accessible with the upgrade."

Interesting, there was no problem getting all functions on the Sea&Dea MDX-D800 housing. I understand that its bad business releasing a kit if they also release a new D810 housing :D
