Fantasea Announces Underwater Housing for Nikon Coolpix S50, S51

Fantasea FS-51 Underwater Housing

Fantasea has a new underwater housing — the FS-51 — that’s fully compatible with the Nikon Coolpix S50, S50c, S51 and S51c compact digital cameras.

The Fantasea FS-51 gives photographers access to all camera functions of the said camera models and is rated to a depth of 60 meters or 200 feet.

Underwater photographers can dive or snorkel with it, while outdoor photographers can use it to capture live action in white water and paddle sports, sailing and boating, surfing, fishing, hunting, backpacking and camping. With its double O-ring seals on all controls, this new Fantasea housing protects the Coolpix camera from water, sand, dust, and other damaging elements.

The FS-51 also comes with an anti-glare hood over LCD screen, a built-in flash diffuser and a 41mm lens port. It will have a retail price of $245 when it becomes available in late November.
