Product Overview:

Nauticam Canon 5DS / 5DS R / 5DMKIII underwater housing - see our recommended ports and lenses below. This housing is a refinement of the acclaimed design used in the Nauticam Canon 5D Mark III housing.  Nauticam took Canon SLR housing ergonomics to another level, featuring relocated command dials and piano keys.


The industry leading engineering of the existing Nauticam housings is obvious with the easy and secure locking latch system, unrivalled port lock lever, piano keys that relocate key controls for easy handle access, and the exceptional interchangeable viewfinders.

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.

Many of the controls for the NA-5DSR are based on the NA-MKIII, taking advantage of how solid that housing is. Still, the Nauticam designers were able to make improvements. Small changes, to be sure, but each incredibly well thought out - designed by underwater photographers, for underwater photographers. 

As an example of a minor but important change, the right side of the housing has been made less "crowded" by moving the video/still switch to the top of the housing, and combining the ISO and DOF preview buttons in a tactile rocker that makes accessing both controls exceptionally easy. Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of the patent pending multi-controller. This moves the joystick control closer to the right hand, making it easier to get to. The piano keys for Set and Q were beautifully sculpted to make room for it, yielding a user interface that is both beautiful and functional.
