Nauticam introduces NA – α 2020 housing for Sony full-frame mirrorless line

Published

on

Nauticam has supported the Sony Alpha full-frame line since the original a7 with professional grade aluminium housings that offer intuitive access to all the controls and functions of the cameras.  As the cameras have evolved, so have the Nauticam housings.  The Nauticam NA-α2020 takes their commitment to the Sony full-frame mirrorless line to another level by delivering the first housing that will support both the a9 II and the a7R IV with full access to all controls without modification or restriction.

While both the a7R IV and the a9 II feature the same size sensor and body, they are two very different cameras.  With the NA-α2020 Underwater Housing, you now can choose the right camera for the job while using the same housing, lenses and ports.  Both cameras share 5-axis in-body stabilization (IBIS) providing up to 5.5 stops of stabilization and the ability to record 4K video either from the full sensor width or a Super35 crop at up to 30p to dual UHS-II SD card slots.  Whether the shoot requires the 61MP of the a7R IV or the 20fps continuous shooting of the 24MP a9 II, the NA-α2020 is ready to go without modification.

Both cameras are capable of clean HDMI video output up to UHD 4K 4:2:2 8-bit at up to 25p and the NA-α2020 supports HDMI 2.0 and 1.4.

Nauticam’s wide range of ports and in-house corrective optics are the perfect complement to the NA-α2020’s inherent flexibility.  Built around the N100 Port System, the NA-α2020 supports a wide variety of Sony FE mount lenses, as well as EF mount lenses via adapters.  In addition, there are several options available to use the ground-breaking WACP and WACP-2 wide-angle corrective lenses as well as the more compact and in-water removable WWL-1.
