With the EOS-1D X Mark III, Canon is introducing a new 20.1 MP CMOS Sensor with the widest ISO range of any EOS camera, 20FPS live-view Servo AF shooting, and 12-bit 5.5K RAW or DCI/UHD 4K at up to 60p recording.  The EOS-1D X Mark III is a true all-in-one capture platform with incredible still and video performance. The Nauticam NA-1DXIII adds a host of video-centric enhancements as well as more refined ergonomics and control access for all shooting situations.

Stills or video, the NA-1DXIII has the features you need

While the EOS-1D X Mark III can capture incredible 5.5K 12-bit RAW video internally, it can also output uncompressed DCI or UHD 4K video over HDMI at up to 30p.  For those that prefer to use a more edit-friendly codec such as ProRes or DNX, the addition of an external monitor/recorder is an option.  The NA-1DXIII features the large-bore M28 bulkhead that supports Nauticam’s HDMI 2.0 cable system and supported monitors/recorders such as the Atomos Ninja V.  The system also supports the HDMI 1.4 standard for use with non-recording monitor solutions such as the SmallHD 502 Bright and comes with an M28 to M16 step-down adapter pre-installed.

Regardless of where a button or control dial may lie on the camera body, Nauticam engineers obsess over making sure that access to that control on the housing be intuitively placed for ease of use to insure no shot is missed while searching for a button or dial.  The NA-1DXIII features a double-action thumb lever reachable from the right handle that actuates the AF-ON and RECORD buttons on the rear of the camera.  A recessed dual-action lever that rests between the right handle and the housing triggers ISO and the M.Fn controls.  A dual-action thumb lever on the left side is for PLAYBACK/INFO and another dual-action lever on the front left of the housing is for the customizable PV and FN controls.  Large textured control dials on the right side access the main and sub command dials and a large dial on the left side is for controlling lenses equipped with manual focus or manual zoom gears.

Premium Professional Optics

Optical performance is just as necessary as camera performance and this becomes even more critical given the challenges of filming underwater.  The Nauticam NA-1DXIII uses the same N120 Port System as the previous NA-1DXII which makes for a seamless transition for those upgrading to the Mark III.  While this system provides exceptional optical-glass, acrylic and flat port solutions for a wide variety of EF-mount lenses, the real power of the EOS-1D X Mark III can be realized using Nauticam’s Water Contact Optics.  This line-up of dry and wet lenses are conceived using commercial lens-design software to achieve truly unparalleled underwater image quality both for stills and video in both macro and wide-angle situations.
