Nauticam Canon 5D Mark III underwater housing - see our recommended ports and lenses below. This housing is a refinement of the acclaimed design used in the Nauticam Canon 7D 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.
If you want to take this housing past 100 meters (330ft), check out the excellent Nauticam 5D Mark III deep-rated 150m underwater housing.
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.

Aside from a rental I had used with a Nikon, this is my first DSLR housing. I have, however, seen and held several different makes of housings, and the Nauticam just seems nicer to hold. I've only taken the housing on one liveaboard trip so far, but it was clear from the start how well-designed this piece of equipment is. I am able to access all the controls I need underwater to shoot both stills and video, and alternating between my two sets of lenses and ports was never a hassle.
I've been using the NA-5DMKIII for the past month and it has performed excellent! I've had it on two liveaboards and put it through some very harsh conditions. The Nauticam port lock makes changing lenses and ports a breeze. I love the new playback and ISO controls. It makes it so easy to review and make changes. I also really like the new location for the movie rec on/off button. Back button focus is easily reached with your thumb and the housing has access to the multi control joy stick. Both important features in my opinion. I use mine with the Nauticam 180 viewfinder and it makes a huge difference for precise focusing. They also make a 45 degree viewfinder. This is a great camera for underwater and the Nauticam housing is a perfect companion.
