You can capture beautiful images of parrot fish, moray eels, and coral reefs at depths as great as 197', thanks to Nimar's dedicated Underwater Housing for your Nikon D5500 or D5600 DSLR camera. The enclosure features a moisture alarm that alerts you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal. A manual, 5-pin Nikonos connector enables the attachment of optional external strobes via sync cords. As an alternative, dual fiber-optic ports allow strobes to be fired by the camera's built-in flash.

Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions, while dual ergonomic grips improve handling and provide attachment points for lighting arms. Additionally, a removable eyepiece with 1.5x magnification enhances your view when composing shots through the camera's finder. The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable bayonet-mount ports for various lenses. For complete compatibility details, see the list below.

Built for durability, the housing is made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the camera and O-ring seal. Four stainless steel latches with safety clips ensure a secure closure.
