Nauticam Canon EOS R6 Mark II Underwater Housing
The Nauticam Canon EOS R6 II Underwater Housing is built from solid aircraft aluminum which ensures its durability and can take a beating. Nauticam is also popular to produce underwater housings that has excellent ergonomics which makes it easy to shoot and comfortable to use. Buttons, levers and dials are always readily available at your fingertips. Operation is always a breeze even while wearing thick gloves.
Housing Locking Latch
The housing uses Nauticam easy to use housing locking latch system. It also safely locks the housing and prevents accidental opening. It is very easy to open for a quick battery or memory card change.
Patented Port Locking System
The housing uses Nauticam patented port locking system which is also used on their DSLR housings. No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever. Nauticam also offers locking port extensions, meaning a dome will never twist, even when used with a long extension ring.
The Mission Control design places all important camera controls as close to the handles as possible to provide effortless and quick camera setting changes underwater to insure you don't miss the shot. The dual thumb lever and sub-lever are placed by the right handle. The dual thumb lever on the front right side activates the "M-Fn" and "Rec" buttons while the sub-lever on the right rear side corresponds to the "AF-ON" button. Near the left handle is a thumb lever for "Playback" for easy image review. Large rubberized dials access the camera's main and sub commands. he two-stage trigger allows for smooth focus and firing activation. Additional buttons for "Menu", "Focus Point Selection" and others are also easily reached from the handles.
Optional Nauticam Optical Flash Trigger or Nauticam TTL Converter for Canon can be used to utilize the built-in fiber optic bulkheads along with the Nauticam Universal Fiber Optic Cables. For controllingstrobes that do not support fiber optic flash triggering, a variety of legacy hot-shoe flash control bulkheads are available.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is pre-installed in the housing as standard equipment. When combined with the Nauticam M14 or M16 Vacuum Valve, it provides constant updates throughout the dive as to watertight integrity of the housing via a multi-color LED on the rear of the housing.
Canon EOS R6 Mark ii Camera under review & sample images:
The latest version of Canon's 2020-announced Canon EOS R6 is the Canon EOS R6 Mark II. Although it isn't a significant improvement, the R6 Mark II is a superb prosumer choice for underwater photographers and videographers searching for the Ideal Hybrid Camera. In many areas, we believe it now competes with the Sony A7 IV effectively, making up for some of the Canon EOS R6's shortcomings. With its 24.2 megapixel, higher resolution sensor, the Canon R6 II can capture oversampled 4K video at up to 60 frames per second. The Canon EOS R6 Mark II has a faster frame rate, making it a more alluring camera for both photo and video photographers who may have shied away from the "low" quality, 20 mp sensor first provided on the R6.
Below are some images taken underwater with the camera:
