NiMAR Unveils Water Sports Housings for Canon EOS RP
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, April 19, 2019 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

NIEOSRPWB - Water Classic Model
 

At the same time as announcing their underwater housing for the Canon EOS RP, NiMAR has unveiled three configurations of water sports housings for the same entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera. The three housing models share the same polycarbonate construction and the NIM108-WS port system, and feature a built-in moisure alarm, but differ in other respects.

The Base Model (NIEOSRPWB, €649) is depth-rated to 98ft (30m) and has no mechanical controls other than the shutter and focus on the included pistol grip trigger. The Pro Model (NIEOSRPWB, €1,099) shares the depth rating and pistol grip, but also has dual side handles and mechanical controls. Finally, the Classic Model (NIEOSRPWB, €799) loses the pistol grip, keeps the dual side handles and mechanical controls, but has double the depth rating of 197ft (60m).
