Aquatica AD7000 is a camera housing designed specifically for Nikon D7000. This is the very first review of the product by Kery Wilk , young but talented underwater photographer. The review is long and very detail about Nikon D7000 and Aquatica AD7000. Overall , he’s agree that D7000 is the best DX DSLR so far and quite happy with AD7000 housing.
The Nikon D7000 is easily the best DX format camera that I have ever used
Overall, I was very happy with the AD7000’s performance.Including a moisture alarm and a hydrophone as standard housing features was a very generous gesture, which I’m sure users will appreciate. And if the multifunctional port-lock/lens-release is any indication of the capability of Aquatica’s engineering team, they have a bright and innovative future ahead of them.
The Aquatica AD7000 housing now available at Amazon , as i’m writing only 2 stock available , quick !
