Today Fantasea announced the FP7000 - the first water housing for the Nikon Coolpix P7000 camera (not listed on Fantasea's website yet). Available in early 2011, price is not yet released.
What is interesting here is that Fantasea came up with this solution just few days after the Nikon Coolpix P7000 camera was announced. This confirms that Nikon does share information about upcoming products with selected manufacturers. Good to know.
