Nauticam Canon 7D Underwater housing
We used this housing on our La Paz workshop in 2011 and really liked it, and got some amazing shots with this housing & camera combination. This is one of the best cameras & housings you can get for underwater photography, hands down.

Nauticam 7D housing ergonomics
An underwater photographer should not have to remove their hands from the housing handles. With the Nauticam Canon 7d Underwater Housing, every control placement decision made during the design of the housing was based on this principal. Long reaches are an awkward compromise, and this housing requires none!
The Nauticam NA-7d underwater housing allows Fingertip access to Shutter Release, Main Control Dial, Quick Control Dial, AF-ON, Still Photo/Video Mode, Video Start/Stop, Star, AF Point Selection, and Set are all offered from the soft rubber overmolded right grip. AF-On, Still Photo/Video Mode, and Video Start/Stop are operated by ergonomic thumb levers. Star, AF Point Selection, and Set are accessed by “piano key” controls built into the backplate of the housing, and easily reached from the right grip. Shutter release is operated via a sensitive, sculpted lever. The Main Control Dial and Quick Control Dial are accessed by enlarged knurled knobs that allow one finger operation.
All eight control directions and center push are offered by the innovative Nauticam Multi-Selector Joystick Control Pad utilized on the NA-7D underwater housing. The multi-selector is an extremely important control for Canon 7d shooters, allowing quick changes to focus point, camera menu settings, and the quick control menu.
Zoom/Focus knob, Power Switch, and push button operation of Quick Control, Menu, Picture Style, Info, Playback, and Erase are all easily accessed from the left grip. All pushbuttons are angled toward the handle to provide comfortable access.

Nauticam 7D Locking Port Release Lever & Locking Extension Rings
Nauticam’s acclaimed Patented Locking Port Release Lever is incorporated into the 7D housing. Lens ports are inserted straight into the Nauticam mount, eliminating the twisting or threading actions that can extrude dry o-rings. Once seated, the large red port lock lever is engaged, securely locking the port in place. To remove a lens port, the silver unlock button is pressed, the port lever rotated to the outer position, and the port is pulled straight out of the housing.
Nauticam is pleased to offer the industry’s only locking extension ring system, securely fixing large dome ports even when mounted with an extension ring.
Optical Flash Connectors for Inon S-TTL, and Sea & Sea DS-TTL
Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with Nauticam housings and a variety of optically fired flashes. Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, and Sea & Sea YS-110 Alpha strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s onboard flash at a proportionally greater intensity. This system yields accurate ttl flash performance with no electrical sync cables to flood! Nikonos, Ikelite, and S6 style flash connectors are available as optional accessories for customers utilizing legacy electrically fired strobe systems.

Rubberized Ergonomic Handles
Nauticam uses a sophisticated overmold process to produce extremely comfortable rubberized ergonomic hand grips. Handles are available in two sizes to accommodate customers with different size hands, and spacers are available with the housing for cold water divers.
Nauticam Housings are machined from a solid block of seawater resistant aluminum alloy, then hard anodized making them impervious to corrosion. All hardware is marine grade stainless steel
