The Nauticam V-Raptor Housing

The Nauticam V-Raptor Housing is engineered similarly to previous DSMC2 LT housings, providing the most compact and travel-friendly system possible. Enjoy unmatched user-friendliness and intuitive operation, including tool-less setup and teardown in minutes. Batteries can be swapped without removing the camera from the housing, and lens changes can be accomplished quickly.

The housing also features adjustable handles with easy access to the zoom and focus knobs. On top of the housing is a 1/4″-20 cheese plate, allowing for a wide variety of accessory mounting points.

In addition to Nauticam’s traditional complete mechanical control, the Raptor housing integrates electronic controls with backlighting. These controls can access Iris+/-, Shut+/-, ISO+/-, and WB on the left side of the housing and Pre-Record, FPS+/-, Playback, Play/Pause, Magnify, and Tools on the top of the housing.

Lens Support

Nauticam V-Raptor Housing includes a 250mm Wide-Angle Glass Dome Port. The left side of the housing features an easily accessible command wheel for smooth ND changes. Changing lenses is quick and easy and doesn’t require any tools.
