We went down to Crystal River, Florida to check out what the compact Nikon D5600 DSLR camera can do with ambient light in the early morning sun. Needless to say we were very pleased with the results!
All photos were taken with the new 200DLM/C Compact DSLR Underwater Housing for the Nikon D5500, D5600 # 6902.56 and Nikon 8-15mm Fisheye lens. The lens vignettes between 8-10mm, but the 11-15mm focal length is perfect for the manatees as it exhibits less fisheye distortion.
The compact DSLR housing for the D5600 is a fraction of the size and weight of a traditional DSLR set-up which made it very comfortable to maneuver around the surface of the water. The 45º Magnified Viewfinder # 6891.1 was essential for comfortable posturing and large, bright framing of our images.
