Unlocking the D800’s Power
In an impressive engineering breakthrough,
Nauticam has patents pending on a new Multi Controller Pad located
within easy reach of the right thumb. The device virtually recreates the
Nikon multi selector on the back of the NA-D800 housing allowing full
multidirectional use of this powerful
tool. Amazingly, all 51 focus points can now be reached by a direct
approach – even on a diagonal. All of the other scroll and select
functions are equally enhanced without ever having to move from one
button to another in the traditional fashion.
Nauticam housings have always been renowned for excellent camera
controls, which have continued to
evolve for the new NA-D800. The size and function of the main command
dial wheel has been improved to more naturally and accurately make
adjustments with the right thumb. Exposure Compensation is easily
accessible to the right hand, as is the metering selector control.
Shooting modes are the province of the left hand through the release
mode dial, as is the focus mode selector and AF button. A flash mode
selector button and a flash off lever allow users to instantly switch
from firing strobes to ambient light photography (and back) when
utilizing fiber optic synch cords. Of course, all the requisite function
buttons are appropriately positioned around the easily viewed LCD
window and will work as well at a 100 meters as they do at the surface.
In commitment to the customer experience, Nauticam offers a kit to swap the operation of the AEL/AFL and AF-ON Function through the housing.
The Best Standard Features in the Business
Nauticam pioneered numerous engineering breakthroughs in previous
housings that now come standard on the NA-D800. The patented housing
Locking Latch System has received acclaim worldwide for its ease and
functionality. These recessed latches are equipped with safety locks,
reduce bulk and require
minimal physical effort to engage and release.
Port changes have never been simpler than utilizing the Patented
Nauticam Locking Port Release. No wrestling, no twisting, no
misalignment - just seat and lock. Lens changes are also easily
accomplish without removing the camera from the housing with the lens
release button logically accessed on the housing front.
The lightweight, rugged Nauticam handles are generously contoured
with a durable over-mold process of comfortable non-slip rubber.
Virtually any hand size can be accommodated with spacers available for
cold water glove use.
All Nauticam housings are machined from a solid block of seawater
resistant aluminum alloy and then hard
anodized making them impervious to corrosion. Hardware is marine grade
stainless steel. Clear acrylic windows are protected with a scratch
Precision Takes Vision
A super high resolution camera like the Nikon D800 demands perfect
focus for optimal results. Fortunately,
Nauticam has developed the most user-friendly interchangeable precision
viewfinders in the world. The standard optical glass viewfinder is very
good and travel friendly, but many photographers prefer the ease of a
magnified viewfinder with adjustable diopter.
Nauticam produces a “straight” 180 degree enlarging viewfinder and a 45
degree angled enlarging viewfinder to enhance the ease of close quarters
work often associated with macro shooting. Both viewfinders have high
quality optics allow viewing of the entire image. A patented external
dioptric adjustment allows personal adjustment to a sharp-as-a-tack
standard underwater and viewfinder changes can be executed in less than
30 seconds without using tools. Exceptional composition and
focus accuracy have never been more accessible.
Lighting control is key to any
successful underwater photography system. All Nauticam housings are
fiber optic ready with two secure threaded FO synch connectors. The
Nauticam system fiber optic cables are compatible with Inon S-TTL and
Sea & Sea DS-TTL and provide excellent results with a number of
these manufacturer’s strobes with no electrical connections to flood.
For those desiring an electrical Nikonos, S-6 or Ikelite style synch
port, a Nauticam bulkhead is available that can easily be installed or
removed in the field.
Accessories to Achieve Imaging Excellence
Nauticam has the most extensive line of
high quality optical ports available anywhere and any existing Nauticam
DSLR ports will fit the NA-D800. This port line-up includes the award
winning Nauticam White Balance Dome Port with a patented built-in white
balance iris that makes in-water white balancing a
breeze. Nauticam also provides the industry’s only locking extension
rings in every size potentially required, thus preventing port slippage
of any kind when using extension rings. Nauticam additionally offers a
full range of port adapters allowing existing
housing owners to use their current ports, reducing the cost of
switching to a Nauticam housing. Port Adapters are available for
Aquatica, Ikelite, Inon, Nexus M5 & M6, Sea & Sea NX, Seacam,
Subal Version 3 & 4, and Zillion lens ports.
The Ultimate Video Package
If the substantial video capabilities of the D800 are of primary
importance, Nauticam’s NA-DP4 housing
for the Small HD Monitor can take video performance to another level.
The monitor housing easily mounts to the top of the NA-D800 and utilizes
the optional HDMI Bulkhead for true HDMI connectivity. Utilizing DP4
features like Focus Peaking, Focus Assist, False Color,
1:1 Mapping and more, this larger monitor vastly improves composition,
focus capability and exposure.
