Imaging Prowess at Your Fingertips
Designed by photographers for those who demand the best, the Nauticam 5D Mark III housing puts the controls that matter where they can easily be used. Gripping the comfortable rubberized handles, it is obvious you are in command of a professional tool. While never releasing grip, the right forefinger activates Nauticam’s patented two stage shutter release. The gearing in this control allows the photographer to precisely feel the half and full press positions of the shutter release for exact focus control.
Large diameter knurled wheels control the Main Dial and Quick Control Dials. These dials are simple to operate with a single finger, and their large size and tactile feel allows easier operation while wearing cold water gloves. These key controls change f-stop and shutter speed, and are also an easy way to scroll through camera menus.
