It is fully into my old F-100 Nexus housing. Front dial is exactly in line with knob.

 

On/Off will work. Two botten will work. Basically O.K. with Fornt side of Housing

 

I may need to make new base plate. I am going to talk with my machinist next week.

Good thing about using Nexus housing is it has half clear back. the picture shows lens & bottens but, I also, have BASIC plate (just simple clear plastic).

 

Only think I may not get is Focusing dial.

 

Look very promising project. If somebody has better idea or suggestion, please, advise.

Hi Sam,

 

One other thing to check is that the lens is in the middle of the port - otherwise your wide angle optics will be unreliable.

Alex,

Thank you. I noticed that too. I am in process of making new base plate for camera & it looks camera seats in center-middle of the port.

Camera is now fully inside housing & I closed back cover. I still need to adjust few things. I think I can use this housing at least until D-200 housings are fully available in market. We will see how it go.

If it doesn't sell I may well try the same thing - maybe we can get the housing maunufacterers to make a D200 back for F100 housings :unsure:

Steve,

 

Your Seacam housing isn't as well-suited as the Nexus. The clear back on the Nexus makes it super-easy and the 4button controller is right there so you can see if it lines up or not.

 

On the other hand, you can probably get a machine ship to cut a profile for an LCD window on the back with a 1/16" inch backing to fit it in. In any case, good luck!

 

Cheers

James

James,

 

I have one from Stephen Frink & second one purchased from Mike Mesgleski at Jim Church photo. I like F100 & Seacam housing but, have enough for right now ^^

sam,

 

what controls do you maitain, how's the viewfinder alignment.

 

every now and then i think about putting anything Nikon Dslr into my Nexus 8008 housing. As I shoot manual only I will only need controls for shutter, aperture, maybe white balance and perhaps on/off.

 

And of course lens alignment with the port.
