Waterproof protection for your J1 and J2

You probably already take your Nikon 1 along on nearly every adventure. Now you can take it on the ones that involve water, too! Compatible with Nikon 1 J1 and Nikon 1 J2 and the 10-30mm VR lens, the WP-N1 waterproof housing lets you keep creating, whether you're above the sea or below. Now that's creative freedom!

Your adventures have never looked better

Stunning Nikon 1 photos and HD videos, even underwater

If you've ever used a disposable waterproof camera, you know the photos just don't capture the magic of an underwater experience. But imagine having your Nikon 1 while diving or snorkeling, kayaking or swimming—your photos and HD videos will be amazing! Nikon 1's ultra-fast autofocus will capture even fast-moving reef life in life-like vibrancy.

Easy access to key camera controls

The lightweight (approx. 27.9 ounces or 790 grams) and sleek WP-N1 waterproof housing perfectly fits the Nikon 1 J1 and J2 and maintains your access to key camera controls and buttons. The zoom ring, Mode dial, Multi-selector, movie recording, playback, delete and menu buttons are all easily accessible from the housing's exterior, giving you the same creative control you enjoy on land.

Price is very economical The previous reviewer may not understand what underwater camera housings cost. The list price for this one seems VERY reasonable. Most underwater housings for decent DSLRs cost $1600 and up (way up in many cases). The only slightly obnoxious thing is the 130 ft limitation, but since there is not much light deeper than than and diving gets very technical below that depth, this housing would be quite useful for not too much money. December 11, 2012
Awesome Housing I have used this on about 25 dives at this point and it is a great housing. To be concerned with the 130' "limitation" is ridiculous. I have been diving for over 15 years and have only gone below that a handful of times. For safe recreational diving limits it is more than ample. I like being able to access all of the features, including zoom, and have mine set up with 2 Sea & Sea YS-D1's on Sea Arm VII's. I was looking at a complete setup for my SLR's, but they were at least twice the price, and if the housing fails, I'm out far less money for a camera. I know there is a picture quality trade-off, but I'm still pretty new at taking UW photos. December 23, 2012
Great Housing for a better Price! decent package, as stated below the 130ft limitation is a bit of a downfall, but the fact that it is one of the only housings that you can get that has strobe capability is great, and at $800 its a steal for a good quality housing, considering the Ni-Mar housing is around $1800. basically any housing you buy will cost close to double or more of what the camera is worth, you can get cheap acrylic housings on eBay but they are poor quality and i wouldn't trust them past snorkeling. Very Happy with the housing, i have it paired with 2 Ike-lite strobes and tray. i gave it 4/5 simply due to the depth limitation, its a 5/5 for everything else with full camera functionality, this really is a great camera for recreational diving! December 12, 2012
is this a joke? The Nikon j1 or j2 is price ranges from around $400-$700. The fact that the waterproof housing is more expensive than the camera is outrageous. The housing shouldn't be more than $200. September 9, 2012
Deverian hacerla para nikon 1 v2 Estupendo para los que buscan fotografias submarias, sin embargo, se queda corta para los que tienen una camara Nikon 1 v2 ya que tambien queremos sumergirnos, espero la creen, Gracias! January 4, 2013

Answer: 
This can't be used with the V1 because the form factor is a little different than the J1 / J2 cameras, and these underwater housings are designed to fit their respective cameras pretty tightly.

Answer: 
Yes, from the manual:
The waterproof case is equipped with 2 fi ber-optic cable
sockets, permitting underwater fl ash units to be connected
and controlled by the camera’s built-in fl ash. When using an
underwater fl ash unit, remove either of the fi ber-optic cable
socket caps (q; note that although there is no risk of leaks
when the caps are removed, the caps for unused sockets
should be left in place), connect the cable (w), and be sure
to raise the camera’s built-in fl ash after placing the camera
in the case. The fl ash will fi re with every shot. Before using
the fl ash underwater, take a test shot and confi rm that the
fl ash is functioning normally. For more information, see the
documentation provided with the fl ash unit.

With logistics today, the smaller the better for me when I travel to dive locations. I used to take my D70 with a large case, strobes, etc., a lot of work and worry. With this set up, I can put it my backpack as my carry -on along with my other personal items. Sure would like to try this out.
