Fantasea FL-18 Waterproof Camera Housing User Reviews
Does exactly what it needs to do
“This does exactly what it needs to do – protects the camera, is close to neutrally bouyant in salt water (a little negative in fresh, but not a problem) and does not interfere with the quality of picture. All controls are accessible and easy to use underwater – I also got the flash bar / arm / flash / fiber optic cable – that also performs well. I use it with the L18.” – By J. Fox

Fantasea FL-18 Waterproof Camera Housing Features & Specifications
The Fantasea FL-18, housing is for the Nikon CoolPix L18, L16, and L15 digital camera. You can use this housing to take underwater photos at depths of up to 200′ (60 m). The housing is also great for taking worry-free pictures in the rain, at the beach, or on the ski slopes.
The housing features double O-ring seals on all control buttons, which are now made from coated brass. There is a radial O-ring main seal, a diffuser built into the housing, anti-glare hood over the LCD screen and four stainless-steel buckles.
You can use your camera’s internal flash for lighting purposes. Or, use the internal flash to trigger a slaved external strobe like those made by Fantasea, Inon, Sea & Sea and Sealife. Wide-angle conversion lenses with a 46mm thread will fit the housing. By getting closer to your subjects there will be less water between you and your subject. This will produce better photos with more contrast and improved color saturation.
