The Ikelite DL Housing for Nikon Z6 / Z7 is an underwater camera housing that’s waterproof down to 200 feet. Key features include:

  • Only for Nikon Z6 and Z7

  • Underwater access to virtually all camera functions

  • Waterproof down to 200 feet

  • Includes 20mm, 28mm, 42mm, and 50mm lens ports

Heavy-Duty Underwater Housing. Ikelite’s heavy-duty housings are contoured to the camera, completely corrosion-free and super durable. The transparent backing allows for a clear view of the main o-ring seal, port o-ring seal, and camera controls. We choose to rent Ikelite-branded housings because they give you access to almost every camera control underwater. This housing is only compatible with the Nikon Z6 and Z7.

Ikelite Base with Dual Quick-Release Handles. This rental includes Ikelite’s Base with Dual Quick-Release Handles, which aids underwater maneuverability, is easy to attach and remove from the housing, and doesn’t interfere with the housing’s operation.

Dry-Lock Port System. This housing’s new Dry-Lock Port System employs a range of interchangeable ports of different lengths that you can use individually or in combination to suit a variety of lenses. This rental includes 20mm, 28mm, 42mm, and 50mm ports that can be used on their own or in combination to fit the following lenses (not included):

Nikon Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S (20mm + 50mm port)
Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S (50mm port)
Nikon 16-35mm f/4G ED AF-S VR + Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter (42mm + 50mm)
Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S + Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter (28mm + 50mm)

These are just a few examples. You can see a more comprehensive list of compatible lenses here.

Vacuum Pump with Gauge. This rental includes Ikelite’s Hand Pump with Gauge, which lets you check for leaks and create a vacuum seal inside the camera housing to confirm that it’s watertight.

Underwater Housing Assembly Tips. Always assemble the housing first without a camera in it on dry land. Then slowly submerge the empty housing into a bathtub or a bucket, rotate the housing all around, and look for escaping air bubbles. This could be a sign that the housing is not assembled properly and water could be getting into the housing. Only after a few assemblies and dunks with no leaks do we recommend putting the camera in the housing. Again, slowly submerge the housing into a bathtub or a bucket, rotate the housing all around, and look for escaping air bubbles. As a courtesy to our gear-cleaning team, try to give the housing a quick freshwater rinse and dry off before sending it back if possible!

Underwater Shooting Tips. Practice using the camera and housing on dry land to get comfortable with adjusting settings before you get underwater. Get as close as possible to your subjects. Too much water between the lens and your subject reduces contrast and sharpness. Keep your shutter speed high—you’re often moving more than you realize when you’re not standing on the hard ground.

Q & A

Does this product come with a camera or lens?

  • No. This listing is for the Ikelite DL Housing only. Please see the Recommended products to the left for a list of compatible cameras and lenses.

Should I leave the camera installed when not in use?
  • No. You should always remove the camera from the housing for travel and storage. For best performance, store the camera and Ikelite housing in a shaded place when not in use to protect from overheating.

  • Always recheck the o-ring after opening the housing.

How do I clean the Ikelite lens port and housing?
  • To prevent salt build-up, it is recommended that the empty and sealed Ikelite housing be rinsed with fresh water. To prevent salt build-up around the controls, submerge the housing in a rinse tank and operate the buttons to flush out any debris or residue. Wipe dry with a lint-free cloth following any rinse. To avoid flooding, do not leave the Ikelite in a rinse tank.

  • Please note, the housing should always be sealed before coming into contact with any water. It is also recommended that the camera be removed from the housing before cleaning. Do not use cleaning agents on the housing or lens port as incompatible chemicals can compromise the plastic or o-rings, resulting in leaks.
