Stripped down to just the essentials for ease of use, it is roughly half the weight of the original dive housings and features one side grip handle instead of the traditional two.

Capture images and HD video above, on, and below the surface with Nimar's green and clear Water Sports Housing for Panasonic's Lumix DC-GH5 and GH5S mirrorless cameras. Like Nimar's original line of dive housings, this enclosure features a depth rating of 200'; however, it is designed especially for active shooting in shallower depths and when capturing water-based activities, such as surfing or water-skiing. Stripped down to just the essentials for ease of use, it is roughly half the weight of the original dive housings and features one side grip handle instead of the traditional two.

Mechanical controls, including push-buttons, dials, and a lever, enable access to the following camera functions: shutter, start/stop video recording, Fn2, joystick, menu/set, and rear control dial. This reduced control set gives you what you need while simplifying the setup and shooting process, which can be a benefit when capturing water sports.

Designed for durability, the Water Sports Housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate that's green/black on the top, front, and sides, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and the camera. It ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable ports for several Panasonic lenses--as well as a few Canon EF lenses via the Metabones T Speed Booster adapter. Additionally, an optional bulkhead can be installed for the connection of external strobes via sync cords.
