NiMAR is glad to present the new underwater camera housing for Nikon D500
The huge potentials of Nikon D500, the latest product and flagship DX-format camera of the Japanese manufacturer, ensure the use even underwater.
For this reason NiMAR, Italian manufacturer of underwater housings for cameras and video cameras for more than 30 years, has decided to create a new housing dedicated to D500.
NID500, this is the name, is made in clear polycarbonate and is waterproof up to a depth of -60 metres.
The practical mechanical controls allow to manage intuitively and effectively most of the functions of the camera both when photographing and video shooting at 4K/UHD.
It is waterproof thanks to 4 hooks in stainless steel AISI 316 with safety clip so as to assure a proper closing.
Furthermore, to address the absence of the built-in flash, the synch mounting flange on the housing body allows the installation and use of an external flash connected by means of an electrical cable.
A new TTL trigger system is expected soon, thanks to which it will be possible to work via optical fibre with the main underwater flashes available on the market by making full use of the Through-The-Lens system that will set at best the exposure for our shots.
On the back, beside the mechanical controls in chrome-plated brass, there is a magnifying viewfinder with a 1.5x zoom.
Inside there is a moisture meter with red led and buzzer.
The best and safest way to enjoy recreational dives at most.
The manufacturing material we used, Bayer’s Makrolon® polycarbonate, is comparable to the top quality materials since it’s shock and sea salt wear resistant.
Despite a thickness of ca. 10 mm the housing size and weight are kept to the minimum in order to facilitate the use underwater.
The front bayonet mount grants the installation of portholes and domes so as to use the most suitable lenses for underwater photography/video shooting.
Moreover, the NiMAR catalogue includes a wide range of compatible accessories like arms, lens holders, handles, etc.
All the required spare parts for a suitable maintenance are included in the supply, in addition to the side handles in ABS where the arms for illuminators and flashes can be easily mounted.
The paper User’s Mounting Instructions and the tutorial online video, available on the NiMAR YouTube channel, rapidly and directly provide the user with all the information in order to use and mount the equipment properly.
NiMAR offers then to its customers a direct technical support and a complete and constant assistance.
