Nimar Water Sports overview

  • 1Description

With your Nikon D5500 or D5600 DSLR Camera in Nimar's dedicated Water Sports Housing, you can capture brilliant images and HD video above, on, and below the surface. This enclosure is equipped with a 2-button pistol grip trigger that enables one-handed aiming and shooting without shaking the camera--thus ensuring clear, blur-free shots.

The housing 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 to help you photograph or record people surfing, water-skiing, and playing sports in shallow depths. Stripped down to just the essentials, it is half the weight of the original dive housings, so it allows for easier maneuvering. Mechanical push-buttons, dials, and a lever afford access to important camera controls while simplifying the setup and shooting process.

Built for durability, the Water Sports Housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate that's yellow 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 a broad array of lenses. Additionally, an optional bulkhead can be installed to enable the connection of external strobes via sync cords.
