Patented Locking Port Release Lever & Locking Extension Rings

The acclaimed patented Nauticam Locking Port Release is incorporated into the NA-D7100 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.

The Nauticam NA-D7100 underwater housing 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.

D7100 Rubberized Ergonomic Handles

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.
