Nauticam Canon 6D Underwater Housing


Part #: Nau-17311

The Nauticam 6D Housing

Nauticam pioneered numerous engineering breakthroughs in previous underwater housings that now come standard on the NA-6D. This new housing even borrows a control from it's Nikon brethren - the patent pending Multi Controller Pad that is located within easy reach of the right thumb. The Multi Controller Pad allows full multidirectional use of the 8-way controller, while still allowing for the rear command dial to be brought out to the right side of the housing. No other housing manufacturer comes close to achieving this kind of ergonomic access to these critical controls.
