The Mako Shark is a basic underwater camera designed in the 1950s by Jordan Klein[1] and later marketed by fitness- and dive-equipment supplier Healthways. The body is made from a bakelite-like plastic, and the squat cylindrical shape allows the back to be screwed into place with a waterproof seal.

Versions exist with or without front-panel contacts for flash sync[2] and the color may be gray or black, with red accents. The camera's optics, shutter, and film-holder are taken from a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera[3] meaning the Mako Shark is also a fixed focus camera using 620 film.

This camera design was reworked into the Nemrod Siluro, which was manufactured in the 1960s in Spain.
