Capture photos and video over, under, or near the water's surface with your Nikon D5500 DSLR camera in this AquaTech BASE D5500 Underwater Sport Housing. Featuring a depth rating of 33', AquaTech housings are designed for shallow water and surface use, and shouldn't be operated at depths beyond 15' for longer than five minutes.

The included 2-Button Pistol Grip Trigger enables dedicated focus control and shutter operation. Zoom control is enabled with optional zoom gears for applicable lenses. The remaining camera functions must be preset or automatic, as there are no controls for them on this entry-level housing. For those looking to get started in underwater photography or video recording and seeking a simple solution, this housing fits the bill.

An optional bulkhead sync connector, supplied with the optional AquaTech Strike flash housings, enables the BASE D5500 to work with external strobes and Pocket Wizards. Housings are available for various flash units.

The BASE D5500 has an ergonomic design with a side grip handle. Its body is crafted from durable polyurethane, while smaller parts are made from stainless steel and anodized aluminum for resistance to corrosion. The O-ring and quick-release clips with safety latches ensure a watertight seal. Additionally, a standard threaded mounting point at the bottom of the housing enables connection to an optional tripod or tray.

The housing is compatible with AquaTech's full range of interchangeable P series ports for various lenses, and includes the P-65 Lens Port, which accommodates an array of lenses with a maximum length of 63mm. For full compatibility information, see Port Chart.
