The Fantasea FD-40X is more than just an underwater camera housing since it provides protection for the D-40/D-40X against damage from rain, snow, dust, sand and dirt. It is a valuable tool for many commercial, industrial, and medical applications, because it is resistant to most liquids and sprays.

The FD-40X housing is rated to a depth of 200 feet (60m). The main seal between front and back halves is a gasket seal. The lens port attaches with a double o-ring seal for double protection. The camera “slides” into the FD-40X housing on a specially designed tray.

The housing controls are made from stainless steel shafts and springs and are sealed by double O-rings as is the housing port. The control knobs and buttons are made of sturdy molded polycarbonate.
