Nimar NI6D overview

  • 1Description

With your Canon EOS 6D DSLR Camera in this Nimar Underwater Housing, you can capture brilliant images of parrot fish, moray eels, and coral at depths as great as 197'. 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 bulkhead enables the connection of optional external strobes via sync cords.

Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions, while dual ergonomic grips improve handling and provide attachment points for optional lighting arms. A removable eyepiece with 1.5x magnification helps you compose shots through the camera's viewfinder. The housing ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable ports for a broad array of different lenses. For complete compatibility details, see the list below.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is white on the front, sides, and top, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the camera and O-ring seal. Stainless steel latches with safety clips ensure that the enclosure stays shut during your dive.

    Nimar NI6D reviews

    Underwater Housing for Canon EOS 6D (White) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Housing Let me qualify this by saying that it's my first housing and I have only used it on one trip. While I will be using this primarily for work, I am by no means an underwater expert.With that said, I think a proper review will help a lot of people in deciding whether or not to buy.First, I used this with the 24-105 flat port. That combination is BY FAR the least expensive underwater option for the 6D for owners of the 24-105 lens. Getting this setup will easily save you $, if not $.Second, I took this down to 120' with no issues. I can't image that you'd have trouble flooding unless you don't use it properly.All functions of the camera are easily accessible with the housing, EXCEPT the ON/OFF Switch. For me, that makes it a 4-star housing instead of 5. I'm definitely going to forget that sooner or later and that will mean I carried it on a dive for no reason.I did not test the strobe, and I plan on using LED lights, not strobes so this is pretty much a non-issue for me even if they don't work.Overall, you're getting a very solid housing at a fraction of the price of anything even close. The nearest competitor (Ikelite) doesn't support a lot of L lenses and is therefore useless for any serious DSLR shooter.
