The Nikon D7000 is our top recommendation for a dSLR to use underwater, and the Nauticam housing is one of our favorite housings. This is the upgraded NA-D7000V housing.
Nauticam is poised to take the D7000 to new depths and on new adventures with the NA-D7000. The NA-D7000 housing inherits numerous innovations from earlier Nauticam housings like the piano keys which first appeared on the NA-7D housing, an improved version of the locking latches from the NA-550D housing, and the patented Nauticam port locking system. As with all Nauticam housings, comfortable rubberized handles, and innovative ergonomic access to key camera controls are standard.
In keeping with Nauticam philosophy, the NA-D7000 housing continues to improve new products while building on previous successes and innovations. Notable examples are the newly redesigned rear command dial control, and a piano key for easily accessing the video activation button.
The playback button has been moved out to a paddle lever on the left side of the housing, offering instant access from the handle by the user’s thumb. Each control for critical camera functions is designed to allow the underwater photographer unfettered access without removing their hands from the handles.
Another innovative advancement is Nauticam’s patented two-stage shutter release lever. This mechanical lever greatly enhances tactile feel of the half-press and full-press positions of the camera shutter release button, allowing precise focus control, and fewer accidental shutter actuations.
New, easy to use locking latches are easy to close with only minimal hand strength required, and are protected from accidental opening by a locking detent. This new closure method is not only easier to operate, but reduces the overall size of the housing.
A new flash activation button and a lens release button allowing lens changes while a zoom gear is attached without opening the housing back are standard equipment.
The acclaimed patented Nauticam Locking Port Release is incorporated into the NA-D7000 housing. Lens ports are inserted straight into the port 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 outboard position, and the port is pulled straight out of the housing.
Nauticam also features the industry’s only locking extension ring system as standard equipment, securely fixing large dome ports even when mounted with an extension ring.
NA-D7000 is compatible with the same accessories as all Nauticam housings, allowing use of an extensive line of lenses, ports, port adapters, lens gears, and viewfinders.
The optional Nauticam accessory viewfinder provides a crystal clear life size view of the camera’s optical viewfinder through a diving mask. The patented external dioptric adjustment allows eye relief to be fine tuned in water. The high quality optics eliminate distortion and keep color fringing to an absolute minimum. The edge-to-edge, magnified viewfinder image makes confirming fine focus and checking corner composition an absolute breeze.
Nauticam offers a full range of port adapters allowing existing housing owners to use their current ports, reducing the cost of switching to a Nauticam housing. Port Adapters are available for Aquatica, Ikelite, Inon, Nexus M5, Nexus M6, Sea & Sea NX, Seacam, Subal Version 3, Subal Version 4, and Zillion lens ports.
A variety of optically fired underwater strobes yield reliable, totally automatic flash exposures via fiber optic cables with Nauticam housings. Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, Sea & Sea YS-110 Alpha, and YS-01 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.
Nauticam uses a sophisticated over-mold process to produce extremely comfortable and secure rubberized ergonomic handgrips. 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. Acrylic windows are protected with a scratch resistant material.

I bought this housing around 18 months ago, and still have not had a single flood despite taking it on hundreds of dives. It has been very reliable and for this reason I would recommend it highly.
All the buttons are easy to use, even with gloves. I've been shooting primarily with a Nikon 60mm and a Tokina 10-17mm, both work splendidly in this housing.
The only slightly negative thing I'd mention is that after a year or so some of the buttons started getting a bit sticky, especially the lens release button and the red buttons that you press to open it. However that's probably more of a reflection on my poor maintenance that something wrong with the housing.
After having spent close to $2,000 on service and repairs for another company's underwater housing, I decided to give Nauticam a try. I wish I had made the move sooner and saved myself three years of grief.
The housing is remarkable in so many ways! It is compact and durable. The control buttons and knobs are well-positioned and can be operated easily while holding the tray handles. The sensitivity of the shutter release lever is ideal. Whether changing shutter speed, f-stop, or ISO settings on the fly, I can get the job done with very little effort. Switching from stills to video is a snap. Loading the camera into the housing is extremely easy, as is changing lenses with the camera in the housing.
This may sound like an unimportant feature, but it is significant to me. The housing closes easily and is locked into place with very little pressure from the user. It also opens easily, but only when the user depresses the unlocking buttons to move the locking levers to the open position. On my old housing, I literally drew blood at times when I released the spring action housing locks.
This housing is user friendly, too. Did you shoot a test shot only to find there was no card in the memory slot? No problem: just open the back, slide out the camera tray, and insert the card. Do you need to make a quick battery change in your camera? Again, it's no big deal: just open the back, slide out the camera tray, and change out the battery. This is not possible with at least one other manufacturer's product. To change a battery with my old housing, I had to remove the port, the zoom ring, AND one of the tray handles in order to remove the camera from the housing. Then, I had to remove the camera from the housing back in order to change the battery. The Nauticam design is a godsend!
I am using the Nauticam macro port for the Nikor 105 mm lens and the Zen 4" dome port for the Tokina 10-17 mm lens. Both ports fit snugly, are easy to attach to the housing, and are held firmly in place by the locking mechanism. For the first time since I began shooting with a DSLR underwater, I am not worried about a port moving out of place.
Not only is the housing great in the water, but it is quite manageable on land - or on a boat. It takes up less room than some other manufacturer's products, and it can be easily carried in one hand. It's also easy to attach a lanyard between your BCD and the housing or even to attach a carrying strap that can go around a diver's neck and attach to the housing on both sides, allowing a shore entry with both hands free to carry fins or help you balance yourself during the entry.
I can't imagine having a better housing!
This is my first Nauticam housing and I am very pleased with it so far.
I found that the layout of the controls was excellent and it took me only a couple of dives to settle in after switching from my old Olympus E-620 system. It is a testament to how well designed the Nauticam housing is considering that I was not even a seasoned Nikon user and found it a very easy transition.
The housing seems very sturdy and secure and once you work with the Nauticam port system you will never look back.
My only gripe is that when using the Nauticam acrylic 8.5" port with the extension ring needed for the Sigma 17-70mm the port becomes very positively buoyant, causing the camera to try to twist port up in your hand. I solved this by adding a 2lb ankle weight secured around the port extension and then adding stiX floats to get the system neutral and balanced. When using a 4" dome with the Tokina 10-17mm the system was well balanced and slightly negative in salt water.
If you are going to use a large dome I would get the glass rather than acrylic. The glass is heavier and would not need to be counter-weighted so much to balance the rig.
