I'm considering nimar also for nikon d7500 camera. But it looks can't trigger my strobe via internal flash. I has two strobes sea&sea YS01 and YS02 now. If it is possible I don't want to upgrade strobe this time. So still considering...

There was some discussion in another thread with someone asking between two similar housings to the ones you are considering - and using, I think, a Nikon D810. (not you, right??!)

 

Quite a few people thought it was a bit of a pity to be looking at that level of housing for a very high-end D810.....

I bought a nauticam housing and it's great. There are air of people with high end cameras under water.
That should say alot of people. No more responses are necessary. Thankyou. I would take this down if I could

They have limited ports for consideration.

And I am using Aquatica but their response is freaking slow.

If I have choice still, I will prefer Nauticam for sure.

Hi, I have a Nimar case for my nikon D90 with 2 YS-D1 and I´m very happy with it... it looks stronger and safer than the Ikelite, If you cannot affor a 2000 € UW housing this Nimar is a good option, and the new restyling of the Nimar housings look really good...
