The Nauticam Komodo Housing

The Komodo housing follows in line with Nauticam's compact cinema lineup and now becomes the smallest and lightest underwater housing for RED.  The usability of this system remains unmatched with a tool-less setup and tear down in minutes.  Media and batteries can be swapped without ever removing the camera from the housing and lens changes can be achieved in seconds.  

The Nauticam Komodo housing uses the N120 Cinema port system, shared with Nauticam's other N120 platform cameras which allows for easy transition to the Nauticam Komodo from other N120 Nauticam systems. The N120 system also provides access to Nauticam's line of professional premium optics such as the WACP-1/2 and SMC-1/2.

The housing also features adjustable handles with easy access to the cinema style zoom and focus knobs.  On top of the housing is a 1/4"-20 cheese plate which allows for a wide variety of accessory mounting

Lens Support

The Komodo features a Canon RF lens mount, but currently RED is only offering support of Canon EF lenses.  The Nauticam Komodo housing offers full support of the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor along with the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor with Variable ND Filter.  The left side of the housing features an easily accessible command wheel for smooth ND changes.  Once RED releases RF lens support, the Nauticam Komodo housing will be ready and fully compatible.   

Battery Compatibility

The Komodo supports the Canon BP style batteries and the housing will fit up to two Canon BP-975 batteries for hours of run and recording time.  When using the Shinobi Monitor Back you are limited to using the Canon BP-955 batteries.  

Monitor Support

For monitoring, the Nauticam housing does allow the Komodo's built in monitor to be used for an extremely streamlined solution.  Nauticam also offers a version of the Komodo housing which supports the Atomos Shinobi SDI monitor in the rear of the housing.  For an external monitor solution, you can use any SDI supported monitor housing from Nauticam.
