The waterproof housing has a LiveView-Finder. It allows a free insight on the screen of the camera. It is attached to the posterior side of the housing. A soft, silicon O-Ring with an advantageously thick cross section operates as the housing’s main sealing mechanism. An elevated bridge at the anterior side positions the two halves of the housing securely, preventing water from dripping in when it is opened. It is fastened using a secure quick-release function.
The controls of the camera are easily manageable. Everything is reduced to the essential and there are no unnecessary functions. Shutter release, mode dial, and shutter speed are controlled by the right hand. The aperture on the back of the housing is also controlled by the right had via a wheel.
With the aid of the four function buttons all further functions can be controlled. The Joystick button is for the confirmation and is easily reachable on the right side. The back wheel is for the choice. Both functions are reachable with the right hand without letting go the handle bar. They allow a quick adjustment of the camera.
The flash synchro works manually via Nikonos V.
