Nauticam Panasonic S5 II Underwater Housing

 

The Nauticam NA-S5II Panasonic S5ii underwater housing, is a robust and ergonomic solution designed to fit the Panasonic Lumix S5 II and S5 IIX for underwater photography and videography. This housing provides unfettered access to all camera controls and functions, allowing users to fully utilize the camera's capabilities while diving. Its durable construction and user-friendly features make it an ideal choice for underwater storytellers seeking a reliable and efficient underwater housing option.

Key Features:

Patented Port Locking System

The locking lever has become a signature of the Nauticam brand. No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever. 

 
 

Nauticam A7 IV Mission Control

Mission Control

Nauticam engineers are obsessed with usability and the Mission Control theory means putting important controls where they are needed, unrestricted by where they are placed on the camera body. Placing the controls as close to the handles as possible and within easy and natural reach, the user can focus on framing and timing their shot while changing exposure or focus without taking their eye off the EVF or LCD.

The NA-S5II has a thumb lever on the right back side of the housing that comfortably gets AF-On without ever letting go of the handle. An extra lever on the back of the NA-S5II allows for focus mode switching between C/S/MF, while a multi-directional pad gives the ability to navigate the menu or move the focus spots. 

Stainless Steel Handle Brackets

The steel brackets included with the housing provides stability and eliminates the flex and wobble when using big strobes or video lights. It also serves as attachment points for accessories such as lanyards.

 

EF and L Lens Support

Sigma's MC-21 EF to L adapter allows for the use of Canon and Sigma EF-mount lenses to be used with the S5II/X camera. The NA-S5II Housing is designed to not only accommodate the adapter but to allow for the use of the existing focus and zoom gears for Canon EF-mount lenses for the N120 Canon System along with the existing Canon N120 extension ring and port combinations for those lenses. As more native L-mount lenses become available, those best suited to underwater use will be added to the system.

 

Other Features:

  • Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System are shipped with the NA-S5II as standard equipment. Combined with an optional accessory M14 vacuum valve this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing.
  • Strobe Triggering - For rapid-fire manual flash triggering, the NA-S5II is compatible with the Nauticam Mini Flash Trigger (NAU-26305) which uses small LEDs to trigger external flashes via Nauticam Universal Fiber Optic Cables (NAU-26216). The Panasonic DMW-FL70 flash is not supported within the housing.
  • Camera Compatibility - This housing is compatible with the Panasonic S5ii and S5iix cameras

 

THE PANASONIC LUMIX S5II(X) and why it stands out

Panasonic is renowned for creating cameras that cater to specific needs, which has earned them a loyal fan base worldwide. For underwater photography enthusiasts, the S5II is a game-changer. This camera offers an exceptional combination of features and value in a compact full-frame body, making it an ideal choice. Despite its entry-level price point, the S5II boasts impressive specifications that exceed expectations. Here are some of its standout features.

Panasonic s5ii

Dual Native ISO

The S5II is already a great low light performer with a 24mp Full Frame sensor, but with Dual Native ISO, a shooter can jump to the higher native ISO with less grain than what would be typical.

State of the Art Image Stabilization and Hybrid Phase Detection

The Panasonic s5ii has the new ‘phase hybrid AF system’, which blends phase detection for speed and contrast detection for accuracy. There are no fewer than 779 selectable spots covering the full frame, right into the extreme ends. As with the firm’s previous models, the S5II also includes a subject detection system that’s capable of recognising and following people and animals. The new IBIS is capable of suppressing shaking up to five stops. The Dual IS 2 system combines the two systems to boost this by an additional 1.5 stops when an optically stabilized lens is used, such as one of the Panasonic's telephoto zooms.

Built-In Cooling Fan

Unlike many other high-end cameras on the market, recent models have had their video performance limited due to overheating issues. However, Panasonic has consistently prioritized video performance and implemented built-in cooling mechanisms. The outcome is impressive: both the S5II and X cameras offer unlimited 4K internal recording times in 10-bit, as well as 30-minute record times for 6K 30p.

Perks for the S5IIX

The "X" offers even more video goodness. HDMI ProRes RAW or ProRes 422 output for external recording. For topside recording, the camera offers direct to SSD recording via USBC at bit-rates up to 800Mbs.
