Introducing Nauticam WACP-2

Nauticam's innovation shows with the WACP-2's ability to focus in air, making it an even more capable imaging tool with the ability to capture over-under images and even filming topside in wet environments. 

The WACP-2's zoom-through capabilities means the underwater filmmaker or photographer can capture establishing, medium and close-up shots all with one lens while maintaining optimum optical and close-focus performance.  Take for instance the Nikkor Z 14-30mm F/4 S lens which receives a field-of-view range of 81º to 140º with the WACP-2.  This lens allows for more dynamic content on each and every dive without the need for a second camera.

The new shade design allows for easier travel and more protection. By rotating the shade so that it extends further past the front element you can create a larger buffer to protect the dome. While shooting at wider focal lengths you can retract the shade to prevent vignetting.

The WACP-2 is sure to impress the uncompromising underwater image-maker when looking for maximum optical quality, flexibility, and performance.
