Nimar Water Sports overview

  • 1Description

Capture images and HD video above, on, and below the surface with Nimar's yellow and clear Water Sports Housing for the Nikon D5500 or D5600 DSLR Camera. 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 such as surfing or water-skiing. Stripped down to just the essentials, it is half the weight of the original dive housings to afford easier maneuvering and features one side grip handle instead of the traditional two.

Mechanical controls, including push buttons, dials/knobs, and a lever, enable access to the following camera functions: shutter, video recording, live view, top dial, OK, directional controls for menu and settings, and info. 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.

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 sync connector can be installed to allow for the attachment of an external strobe.
