What the Pros Say

"I take a copy of this tape and book with me on all of my photo trips. I consider them both to be essential pieces of my underwater photo equipment ."

- Jim Church, award winning underwater photographer, instructor and author.

"ER (Emergency Repair) for the Nikonos V Camera is an essential part of any underwater photographer's travel kit. The Nikonos V is the most popular underwater camera of all time, and for the thousands of Nikonos photographers out there, ER will keep them shooting even when the water ends up on the wrong side of the O ring."

- Stephen Frink, professional underwater photographer and author

"ER is an invaluable guide that addresses the most important steps and procedures for Nikonos First aid in the event a photographer experiences any accidental water leakage. It can be a camera life saver and belongs in every photographers camera bag just as much as film or extension tubes."

 - Frank Fennell, Nikon Inc.

Please Note:
By carefully following our procedures, you can reasonably expect to restore your Nikonos V to working order within a handful of hours, provided no major electronic damage has occurred. In more severe cases, where some electronic functions have been disrupted, you can at least expect to restore the manual firing capabilities of the Nikonos V camera and get back in the water to take pictures. Once you return home, your camera must be serviced to repair the damage caused by the flood. Maintenance and repairs should be performed by a trained service technician.
