Capture brilliant photos and HD video above, on, and below the surface with your Sony Alpha a7II, a7R II, or a7S II Mirrorless Digital Camera in Nimar's dedicated Water Sports Housing. This enclosure features a depth rating of 197', which is the same as that of Nimar's original line of dive housings. However, this model is designed especially for active shooting in shallower depths and when capturing water-based activities like surfing or water-skiing. Stripped down to just the essentials, it is half the weight of the original dive housings, so it enables easier maneuvering. It also features one side grip handle instead of the traditional two.

Mechanical push buttons, dials, and a lever enable access to the following camera functions: shutter, video recording, mode dial, rear control wheel, self-timer, drive mode, display, ISO, menu, and playback. This control set gives you what you need while simplifying the setup and shooting process, which can be a benefit when capturing water sports.

Built for durability, the Water Sports Housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is orange on the top, front, and sides, but clear in the back to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and the camera. The enclosure ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable ports for various lenses. For complete compatibility details, please see the list below. Additionally, an optional bulkhead can be installed to allow for the connection of external strobes via sync cords.

Does Nimar supply the snc cord & Srobe unit for it`s underwater housing for the Nikon D7100? Regards, Karl Yetter
Asked by: Karl
Nimar does NOT produce sync cords and strobes. The Nimar Water Sports Housing with Pistol Grip for Nikon D7100 or D7200 (Yellow/Clear) is really for working in the water but on the surface. So this housing does not include a strobe connection but optional strobe connectors could be ordered and added to the housing. If you do order the optional strobe connectors you would use Ikelite or Sea & Sea sync cords and strobes.
