Subal ND 850 Underwater Housing for Nikon D850 DSLR Cameras - 10ND850

Subal ND 850 Underwater Housing for Nikon D850 DSLR Camera - 10ND850

With the SUBAL ND850 for the Nikon D850, SUBAL offers Nikon cameras an aluminum housing for the latest development of the compact full frame.

Anyone using a SUBAL ND850 housing for the new Nikon D850 full-frame camera can feel the passion and no-compromise commitment to quality Subal applies down to the smallest part. Their designers and production staff accept nothing but perfection in producing housings. Only the best, top grade materials pass their tough “handmade“ quality control. Less obvious at first glance, are the many improved features Subal builds into their housings, innovations that have grown over decades of field and manufacturing experience. We believe only housings designed and built hand-in-hand with the photographer deserve the “handmade“ label. SUBAL quality wins hands down!

The ND850 housing provides access to all the functions of the Nikon D850 including Live View and Info. The ergonomic SUBAL housing design and arrangement of all the key controls allows easy camera operation without letting go of the grip. The camera is fitted on a special cradle which enables a precise and faster, more secure mounting. A 4mm O-ring and the improved push-button SUBAL Quick-Lock closure system prevents accidental crushing of the O-ring and ensures maximum safety. Threaded holes at the base allow the attachment of a tray. Focusing lights can be attached or mounted to the top shoe. The monitor window provides a glare-free and high-contrast view of the camera monitor. Material selection, processing, surface protection and finish conform to the usual high-quality that is common to all SUBAL products.


Because when it comes down to it, you want only the best materials! Therefore the ND850 SUBAL Housing is milled from a solid block of aluminum. This prevents unwanted air pockets and ensures absolute tightness. All housing parts and accessories are made of this same alloy, which is characterized by a high degree of seawater resistance. Additional heat treatment increases strength and hardness by about 30% and reduces the inevitable underwater deformations due to depth. Guaranteed are shafts, screws, and many other parts made of high-alloy nickel-chromium coated steel. Only high-quality engineering plastics are used - for the best durability and longevity.

Surface Coating

You want to have long-term fun with your SUBAL housing and we ensure that it is built for maximum durability:  “hard-coating” produces wear and scratch resistance plus corrosion resistance in all aluminum parts to a superior level through a tough protective layer (up to 10 times that of an anodic coating). As additional wear-protection we add a high-quality, multi-layer powder coating.


The camera is mounted on a saddle for precise positioning inside the housing. A 4 mm main-O-ring and the SUBAL QuickLock latching system make it virtually impossible to close the housing if the O-ring is not lying correctly in its groove. Maximum security is assured. Threaded holes in the base of the housing allow the mounting of trays etc. A mounting plate with threaded hole on the top of the housing may be used for a light-weight aiming light. Generous shading of the LCD-monitor provides a dazzle-free view of the brilliant image of the camera monitor.

Maximum depth: 80 m (120 m on request)
Weight: Approx. 2 kg (without port and accessories)
Weight in water: nearly neutral (depending on the port and accessories)


All functions of the camera can be operated with easily accessed, ergonomic buttons and large knobs and levers.

SUBAL offers 4 different viewfinder systems for this housing:

The Standard-viewfinder reduces the viewfinder image slightly to allow the whole frame to be viewed whilst wearing a diving-mask.

GS-180 viewfinder and WS-45 angled viewfinder offer an image sized equal to the cameras viewfinder. The GS-180 viewing angle is line of sight and the WS-45 is 45°. The new Prism finder PS-30 shows the viewfinder image full sized with a viewing angle of 30°. The PS-30 has a long eye relief which is especially helpful for video shooting. The viewfinder systems are interchangeable and can be mounted easily by the user.

As with all our products choice of materials, machining, surface protection and finish conform with SUBALs well known standards of reliability and workmanship. All SUBAL ports with bayonet mount can be fitted to this housing (except DP-FE2). Housing comes with type 4 bayonet.
