Drown your D80 in style

The underwater imaging folks at SEA&SEA have announced they will soon offer an underwater housing for the new Nikon D80. The housing, called the DX-D80, should be available later this year.

According to the the company press release:

"Our new DX-D80 compact housing is aimed squarely at professionals, but is easy enough to use for photographers at any level. It's packed with sophisticated features that include a leak sensor, a shutter lever that detects halfway presses, and an ergonomic grip for a comfortable hold. It accepts an interchangeable pickup viewfinder (optional) for vision correction, and its carefully designed controls make it easy for anyone to use the camera intuitively underwater."

Our thanks to SEA&SEA USA's John Davy for permission to reproduce the product shot. By the Way-- John tells us that Nikonians Corporate sponsor Berger Brothers carries the SEA&SEA line.

The price has yet to be officially announced but we're taking an educated guess that it should be within the same ballpark (perhaps even lower) than the Sea&Sea DX-70 Housing for NIKON D-70.
