Great Nauticam Housing Features
Patented Port Locking System
Unveiled on the very first Nauticam DSLR housing in 2009, this locking lever has become a signature of the Nauticam brand. No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever. Nauticam also offers locking port extensions, meaning a dome will never twist, even when used with a long extension ring.
Housing Locking Latches
The industry's easiest to use housing closure system, requiring very little hand strength to operate, secures the housing back in place. The latches are safely locked to prevent accidental opening, but are easy to open when needed for a quick battery or memory card change.
Multi-controller Pad & Piano Keys
Located within easy reach of the right thumb, ergonomically operates the 1DX Mark II Multi-controller joystick. Full directional control is available, including diagonals, for fast focus point or menu selection.
Piano keys, unveiled on the Nauticam housing for Canon 7D in 2009, bring the Quick Control and SET functions out to the housing handle for quick changes.
The right hand grip features a cluster of key camera controls, all placed ergonomically for fingertip access.
Shutter Release, AF-On, Video Rec, Main Dial, Quick Control Dial, M. Fn., and ISO are all conveniently located.
Fn and Pv Assignable Function Keys
One of 19 available camera functions can be assigned to this oversized, tactile lever for easy operation.
Integrated Vacuum Monitoring and Leak Detection
Circuitry included as standard equipment provides constant monitoring of water tight integrity when combined with an optional Nauticam M16 Vacuum Valve II (PN 25625).
Vacuum System Reset Button
Vacuum system reset button allows the electronic monitoring system to be reset from the port opening, without removing the housing back, for fast lens changes with the security and confidence of constant vacuum monitoring.
Stainless Steel Handle Brackets
Stiffening handle brackets are included with the housing. These brackets eliminate any flex or wobble when using big strobes, and provide multiple attachment points for lanyards or other accessories.
Ergonomic Rubberized Grips
Another legendary Nauticam feature, these rubberized grips have been used every Nauticam DSLR housing release, and are some of the most comfortable in the business.
Clear Control Labeling
All camera controls are clearly labeled, allowing easy identification.
Double Thumb Levers
Oversized double thumb levers, easily reached from the housing grips, and operational while wearing cold water gloves are a nauticam signature.
