Diving on Cocos Island

NikonDiving on Cocos Island with the Nikon D300 : When I was a little child, going to Cocos seemed as difficult to me as flying to the moon. Not within reality. Now, 20 years later, I am travelling on a ship, the Sea Hunter, to Cocos, where I will dive with hammerhead sharks. And where I will test the Nikon D300 SLR camera with the Subal ND30 underwater housing. It seems unreal to me... Every-thing on board of the ship aimed at diving with hammerhead sharks. During the trip, the dive masters offer us an extensive briefing. They emphasize that we are 700 km away from the coast so we need to be extra careful.

Diving on Cocos Island

Subal underwater housing
One of the main characteristics of Subal underwater housings is the high quality of the materials that are used. Anodized aluminium is used for the housings with extreme surface hardening and corrosion resistance through HardCoating, preventing corrosion from making an appearance. A durable and high quality plastic is used for the operating buttons. And finally, the ports are equipped with glass lenses with a special coating on the inside to keep reflection to a minimum. It may be clear that the quality of this housing is extremely high. This does show in the price you have to pay for a Subal underwater housing. But then; if you pay peanuts you buy monkeys.

Nikon D300 digital SLR camera
With the D300 Nikon introduced a successor to the D200 that is also very appealing to the professional photographer. The camera is extremely solid and made of metal. The housing is well-sealed so that rain or a dusty environment is not a problem. The viewfinder has improved compared to its predecessor; now offering 100% view.

Diving on Cocos Island with Hammerhead sharks
Subal developed the ND30 for the Nikon D300. Although the D300 is a rather big camera, Subal managed to keep the underwater housing compact. Furthermore, the underwater housing Subal gave to me to test features a large viewfinder, the GS180. I took the equipment with me to Cocos Island, where I had to opportunity to dive both in day- as night time. Read the following review about diving on Cocos Island.
