The new Nauticam NA-A7SIII housing is designed to maximize the video-centric capabilities of the Sony a7S III camera while maintaining it’s strong still image potential. Included is Nauticam’s 9″ (230mm) Glass domeport with a manual focus port extension for the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 TYPE II or TYPE III (please specify your TYPE) or for a Canon 24-70mm. The NA-A7SIII housing can be used with the included Nauticam SmallHD Bright monitor housing for optimal underwater operation. It also allows for an HD-SDI signal transmission via the optional 45m surface cable for topside monitoring. We also have a camera and 16-35mm lens package available for the housing.
Nauticam’s Mission Control design means that the controls are intuitively placed where they are needed most regardless of their position on the camera. The NA-A7SIII features a double thumb lever within easy reach of the right handle that triggers the AF-ON and RECORD controls of the camera. A thumb lever on the left side toggles the PLAYBACK button. The back panel of the housing provides access to all other rear camera controls including a multidirectional pad.
The NA-A7SIII comes standard with the Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system. This monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple color coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, an audible and visual indication will occur. The Nauticam system is temperature compensated, eliminating false alarms caused by a change in outside temperature, or from a camera heating up on an action packed dive.
