This Underwater Housing from Nimar is a compact waterproof enclosure enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Nikon COOLPIX AW100 Waterproof Digital Camera. It has a depth rating of 197', greatly improving upon the camera's own 59' rating. Mechanical push-button controls enable access to all camera functions. The Nikon COOLPIX AW AW100's built-in flash is usable, as well. An optional fiber-optic cable connects to an optional external strobe, such as the Nano Flash, which is triggered as a slave unit by the camera's flash.
An integrated flat port made of polycarbonate accommodates and protects the lens. Built for durability, the housing is made from black Delrin acetal resin with a transparent polycarbonate back for viewing controls and the monitor while keeping an eye on the waterproof o-ring seal.
