This Nimar Underwater Housing and Camera Kit from B&H Photo bundles the Nimar NIG15 waterproof case with the Canon PowerShot G15 digital camera it houses, enabling you to capture photos and video beneath the surface at a maximum depth of 262.5'. The housing provides access to virtually all camera functions via mechanical controls, though the movie recording button is inaccessible. The camera's built-in flash is usable.
The front, sides and top of the case are constructed from black Delrin acetal resin, a durable plastic, and the rear cover is made of clear Bayer Makrolon polycarbonate. The lens port is removable and compatible with the optional M67 Macro Lens Adapter. An optional fiber optic cable connects to an optional external flash unit. Additionally, an optional pair of removable handles is available, providing improved handling and attachment points for lighting.
The Canon PowerShot G15 digital camera is a point-and-shoot with a 12.1MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor for high-resolution still images, Full HD 1080p video capture, 10 fps continuous burst shooting, and low-light sensitivity to ISO 12800. The 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-140mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives, and a fast maximum f/1.8 aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth of field. Additionally, the camera offers a 3.0", 922k-dot LCD screen, along with an optical viewfinder and a hot shoe.
