        Comments about Nimar Underwater Housing for Nikon COOLPIX AW100 Camera:

        I use the AW100 frequently when snorkelling, it's a great point and shoot, very easy to use and the results are great for 16mp. The limitations have been with depth and time in the water without flooding, even with applying a small layer of grease to the gasket (have sent it back twice to Nikon for repairs). Problem solved with the Nimar housing.

        My last dive was to 100ft then 60ft after a brief surface interval, which means the camera was tossed (by the divemaster) into a bin to soak with several other cameras. The housing feels, looks and acts very solid so it stood up to the ruff handling without a scratch.

        The camera's view screen was just as visible at depth as it is out of the housing. The control buttons on the housing are very close together but were easy to use; the different sizes help distinguish the functions easily at depth. I had no problem switching from video to stills and using the zoom. The water temp was 79 degrees so I wasn't using gloves.

        The camera sets in the housing well and is easy to rig. With more experience I might be able to unlatch both sides at the same time but for now its one side at a time (there is no concern about distorting the clamps as there might be with other thin metal clamps).

        Care of the housing is simple, the one o-ring is easily cleaned and lightly greased; a spare o-ring and grease come with the housing.

        I ordered the housing without a tray but it fits well on the tray I have for my video light. The standard fitting on the Nimar housing is constructed so that it can be replace it.

        I appreciate the compactness of a small camera while in the water and now I don't have to worry about flooding because I'm in the water more than an hour or diving at depth.

        Great product and I expect that it will hold up for a long time.

          Simple, easy to use. Well made. Use it for diving. The edges are a bit sharp though - need to be refined.

          Comments about Nimar Underwater Housing for Nikon COOLPIX AW100 Camera:

          The Underwater Housing for Nikon COOLPIX AW100 Camera is a solidly built housing. Milled metal body, thick Plexiglas backing. Double clips w/ safety for even sealing of the enclosure. It comes with a spare seal. It is a tad on the heavy side on the surface but should balance out in the water. The AW100 fits nice and snug. All controls work nicely. I might recommend a screen protector on the back for longevity.
