Nauticam Housing for Olympus OM-D E-M1

We have tested this camera and housing and it is awesome!


Part # Nau-17806

Great New Features of the Nauticam OM-D E-M1 Underwater Housing:

  • Easy to use push on port lock, large selection of ports and zoom gears to match the ever increasing line of lenses and more.
  • Redesigned shutter button works more like a dSLR shutter
  • New molded grips, just like their dSLR housings
  • Electronics for vacuum system will be included
  • 45 and 180 degree viewfinders supported
  • Housing is a little larger than the OM-D E-M5 housing, partially because the E-M1 camera is larger than the E-M5

Best lenses for the Nauticam OM-D E-1 Housing:

Nauticam OM-D E-M1 port choices

  • Wide-angle lenses will use a dome port.
  • Mid-range and macro lenses will use a flat port, although the Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 lens must be used behind a larger 6-inch dome port.
  • Zen also has a new glass 7-inch dome which is great for over/under shots (split shots) with the 7-14mm , 9-18mm lens, or Panasonic 12-35mm lens

Call the Bluewater Photo staff to find out which ports are right for you.
