Nauticam NA-S5II Housing for Panasonic S5 II/S5 IIX available now

Published

on

Introducing the Nauticam NA-S5II underwater housing, a robust and ergonomic solution designed to accommodate the Panasonic Lumix S5 II and S5 IIX for underwater photography and videography. This housing provides unfettered access to all camera controls and functions, enabling users to fully utilize the camera’s capabilities while diving. Its durable construction and user-friendly features make it an ideal choice for underwater storytellers seeking a dependable and efficient underwater housing option.

Nauticam’s tagline is “Innovation Underwater”, and the company is dedicated to following through with that promise in the industry, while helping to protect customer investments in existing Nauticam gear whenever possible. The NA-S5II/X is a prime example as this underwater housing is designed to work flawlessly with the Panasonic Lumix S5II and the S5X. This NA-S5II allows completely unrestricted access to all of the camera’s controls, positioning critical controls like AF-ON directly at the photographer’s finger tips.

The NA-S5II underwater housing features the rotary housing lock which is now standard on their more compact line of mirrorless camera housings. With this feature, you can easily open and close the housing with one hand.

Nauticam engineers are obsessed with usability and the Mission Control philosophy means placing essential controls where they are needed, unrestricted by where they are located on the camera body. Placing the controls as close to the handles as possible and within easy and natural reach, the user can focus on composition and timing their shot while adjusting exposure or focus without taking their eye off the EVF or LCD.

The NA-S5II has a thumb lever on the right rear side of the housing that comfortably accesses AF-On without ever letting go of the handle. An additional lever on the rear of the NA-S5II allows for focus mode switching between C/S/MF, while a multi-directional pad gives the ability to navigate the menu or move the focus points.

For more information head to the Nauticam UK or Nauticam Worldwide websites.
