Nikon Z8 and Ikelite 200DL Underwater Housing [VIDEO]

The Nikon Z8 is arguably the best camera Nikon has ever released for underwater photographers. We’ve never seen so much power in a Nikon camera this small. It’s perfect for traveling and will serve you well for many years to come.

The Ikelite 200DL housing is designed to perfectly complement the best features of the Nikon Z8 camera.



Made in the USA

We do it all right from our home base in Indianapolis.

Like all of our products, Nikon Z8 housing is made in the USA at our factory here in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our customer service staff are divers and photographers and ready to assist you at every step along the way.


Our materials have evolved to meet the perfect balance between weight and durability. The light gray color keeps your camera cooler on the surface and the ABS-PC blend is lighter than aluminum.

Dry Lock Port System

Our Dry Lock DL port line is famous for being the lightest and most affordable line of professional lens ports on the market.

Lens Support

We support dozens of wide angle, macro, and zoom lenses, with simple and affordable zoom gears, most running in the $25-40USD range.

Technology is integral to everything we do at Ikelite. Using the latest technologies available allows us to create a wide variety of high-end consumer products with a small, dedicated team.

Making underwater photography easier and more accessible is core to our company’s mission. We recently introduced the revolutionary USB-C Charging & Data Transfer Bulkhead which has quickly become a must-have accessory for underwater photographers. With the Nikon Z8 you can install a large memory card and leave your camera body inside of the housing for the whole trip if you want. Attach a compatible USB-C cord to the outside of the bulkhead to recharge at the end of the day or between dives.


Controls are ergonomically placed and simple to maintain. We provide affordable service options including the ability to replace control seals in the field on your own.

Every element of the 200DL underwater housing is optimized for lightweight strength, reliability, and field serviceability.  

Vacuum System

The low profile vacuum check valve allows you to check for leaks before entering the water.

Clear Back

Our clear back allows you to see the camera and the o-ring and gives you a real time view of what’s happening inside your housing.

TTL Strobes

You’re most likely going to be shooting strobes with a system of this caliber, and the Z8 pairs perfectly with our new DS232 strobes. Add the DL1 DS Link TTL Converter to quickly switch back and forth between manual and TTL strobe operation to make sure you never miss a shot with the wrong strobe settings.

Our circular flashtube design is often imitated, but never duplicated.
