Recommended Posts


Subal ND800 Housing with FE4 Dome+ Nikon D800 Camera w/ lots of Extras

Complete kit comes with everything needed to shoot except strobes and cords.

Highly customized Subal ND800 housing and a Nikon D800 camera with many extras 

Housing comes with Subal GS 180 Viewfinder which is a 1.5 magnification

Also included is the huge Subal Glass Dome port FE-4 with a very nice Neoprene cover and cap

This Dome has scratches on outer plastic shade and do not affect a thing and an extremely small one on dome maybe 1/16 of an inch. Too small to be of any concern. Glass in in super condition 

Also included is a 40mm extension ( type 4 ) ring for the dome port with original box

Rear back of Housing is black. This was done by Subal at factory as this was ordered new from them to make the D800 LCD screen more visible in ambient light. Many upgrades were done at this time. This Subal housing is the type 4  newer larger diameter system

Included is the leak detector vacuum seal check from Vivid housing a V5 with a manual pump and an electric vacuum pump and operating manual. This system works great and gives you a green flashing light when operating. Housing also has the Subal stock wet noise/flashing leak detector system with new battery installed. It’s never been flooded

The housing has a custom lever for the flash compensation control which allows you to keep that button on the camera to depressed which allows you to shoot a sequence of shots quickly at different flash compensations in TTL. This is a game changer to get the best light on the subject

You can also shoot the camera in manual as well. The camera is set up for TTL shooting now on the menu settings 

I used Ikelite 161 strobes set on TTL and a Y cable with a TTL converter on this camera setup but it can be fiber optic or two corded with included double bulk heads

If you want to pick up the ikelite y cable and TTL converter I have those soon for sale as well and will give you a deep discount on them as a system buyer . I also have viewfinder adaptor to allow the use of a Nauticam viewfinder to be installed in a Subal housing if interested same deal

The Subal viewfinder is very fine but the Nauticams are a bit of an upgrade

The housing is wired for manual or TTL shooting with TTL strobes but can be shot on manual setting as well

The wiring goes directly from The D800 hot shoe to a Subtronic N5 external bulkhead with all 5 wires connected.

The critical push buttons on back have been replaced with stainless steel buttons that have a grove in them to grasp and pull outward if needed as well as heavy duty springs as Subal buttons have been known for sticking and this cures that. See the button photo to view these.

The Camera has 12,600 activations on it and comes with the Nikon MH -25 battery charger and two batteries a compact flash card. The D800 used two Cards of different sizes. Comes with new camera strap, and Manuals and the USB to camera cord not in photos

Camera is in excellent condition

Spare parts incudes

Two new main housing O-rings

Original back buttons

Subal eyepiece wrench

Camera body cap and housing body Subal cap and wide-angle Subal port cap included 

One extra hot shoe with cable 

One bulkhead cover to fill whatever hole you choose

One original- two external Subal Nikonos style 5 pin port bulkheads with circuit board and hot shoe/cable (came with housing)

One extra Subal D800 tray

This is complete kit with lots of extras and spares . Great deal for anyone looking to take quality underwater photos. 

Camera has a very low shutter count as mentioned above

asking $2,100 or best offer, plus shipping UPS ground at discount rate

Hard to believe no-one has snapped this up! A great deal for an amazing system. Yeah, a bit dated, but I know from personal experience that it can produce superb results.
