Capture brilliant photos and HD video above, on, and below the surface with your Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 or GH5S Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Camera in Nimar's dedicated Water Sports Housing. It's equipped with a 2-button pistol grip trigger that allows for aiming, maneuvering, and shooting with a single hand, all while keeping the camera steady to ensure clear, blur-free shots. Removable side grip handles are also included for times when a two-hand grip is best.

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 especially for active shooting in shallower depths and when capturing activities like surfing and water-skiing. Stripped down to the essentials, it is half the weight of the original dive housings, so it enables easier maneuvering. Mechanical push-buttons, dials, and a lever afford access to a pared-down set of camera functions, thus simplifying the setup and shooting process.

Built for durability, the Water Sports Housing is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate that's green 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 different lenses. For full 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.
