Capture detailed images of parrot fish, moray eels, and coral reefs at depths up to 197' with your Nikon D5500 DSLR camera in this 3D Underwater Housing from Nimar. A manual, 5-pin Nikonos connector enables the attachment of optional external strobes. Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions. For easy, comfortable handling, the housing features ergonomic grip handles. Built for durability, it's made from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the camera and waterproof seal.

The housing ships without a required lens port and accepts optional interchangeable ports for a broad array of wide-angle, fisheye, macro, and zoom lenses. For full compatibility, see Port Chart. Additionally, the housing is equipped with a removable optical viewfinder with 1.5x magnification. As a safety measure, a moisture alarm alerts you to any breach in the waterproof seal, giving you time to prevent damage to your camera and lens.

Construction Details
  • Depth Rating: 197'
  • Moisture alarm alerts you in unlikely event of breach in waterproof seal, so you can get to surface in time to prevent damage to camera and lens
  • Made from corrosion-resistant Bayer Makrolon polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor camera and waterproof seal
  • Stainless steel fasteners with safety clips help ensure secure closure
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Manual, 5-pin Nikonos connector enables attachment of optional external strobes with sync cords
  • Camera's built-in flash is usable in housing but does not need to fire, thanks to sync cord connection for external flash units
  • By not requiring camera's flash to fire, sync cords save on battery life while eliminating delay caused by having to wait for built-in flash to recycle
  • Sync connection also solves problem of false triggering by other light sources, such as someone else's flash firing
