Fantasea releases Nikon S-9 underwater housing

Fish photo taken with Nikon FS-9

Look at this cute little guy. Don't you wish you took this picture?

Yeah, I don't really care either because he's not that colorful. But you might find it interesting to know that it was taken from underwater with a Nikon digital camera.

Fantasea (pronounced fantasy) just released another underwater housing for a Nikon Coolpix camera to allow photographers to plunge their gadgets into water, sand, dust and what have you.

FS-9 housing for Nikon S-9

The FS-9, available from Fantasea for about $200, fits the Nikon Coolpix S-9. The housing comes with an anti-glare hood over the camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen and a flash diffuser.

The company also hinted that Fantasea housings for the Nikon D-80 and Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (that's the Canon EOS 400D or Kiss X for our international friends) will soon be available.

Good VR doesn't come cheap, as evidenced by Nokia's Ozo 360-degree video camera. Meanwhile, Swatch's next smartwatch has mobile payments, and Blocks lets you build your own smartwatch.
