The new Sony A7 II camera blends a full frame (36mm x 24mm) sensor into a camera body that is essentially the same size as many "compact" cameras. The A7 II offers improved auto-focus over the original A7 camera. The result is a stunning blend of high resolution image quality and compactness. Pair this camera with the new Nauticam Housing for a stunning underwater rig with complete lens and accessory support.

Sync cords: The standard Nauticam A7 II housing includes a bulkhead, make sure to select the correct option from the drop down above. If you want to fire your a strobe electronically you will need a S&S sync cord for Sea & Sea and Inon strobes, or an Ikelite sync cord for Ikelite strobes. If you have 2 strobes, you will need the dual-cable versions.
Fiber optic cables: The A7 II housing includes 2 fiber optic ports, to use your fiber optic cables, you will need to purchase the Sony A7 optical flash trigger, because the Sony A7 does not have an internal flash, and use the Nauticam to Sea & Sea fiber optic cables. If you choose this route you can save $100 on the housing by purchasing the No Bulkhead option, using the drop down menu above.
The NA-A7II looks quite similar to the NA-A7, and the housings are approximately the same dimensions. The NA-A7II ships with built-in, yet adjustable handles, featuring Nauticam’s contoured rubberized grip. The “AF/MF/AEL” button is given special treatment on the right side of the housing with a direct access lever immediately reachable by the right thumb. This allows the button to be programmed for AF-ON meaning “thumb focus” fans can easily have perfect functionality. The shutter release can be accessed at the same time, offering extremely quick focus-to-shoot finger action. Like many Nauticam housings, the play button is brought up to the left thumb, and the three command dials (think shutter speed, aperture and exposure compensation) can be adjusted quickly with minimal reach. The ISO button is within short reach of the right thumb, important for video shooters. Speaking of video, the record button is on the top right, thus eliminating camera shake during video start/stop.
The Bluewater Photo sales team knows the lens and port choices very well, don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Love this housing . Although i have used real aluminum housings for my D800 and oder film cameras this is the first one i have owned and i love it . ItS easy to use and very functional . Fish trigger works very well and i like the fiber optics speed . The vacuum seal for the leak alarm is great . Loving mechanisms are easy and seem really secure. Easy to change ports as well . Overall very solid and sturdy - mine got knocked around a bit while in a shark cage in strong chop and no problems. Easy to switch from still to video . Putting alarm battering in and taking it out is a bit funky and the focus knob on the extension ring for a wide angle port gets in the way of the zoom knob but its manageable
Generally i love it - next purchase will be a 45 viewfinder
I've been using Nauticam housings on all my DSLR's in the past. Having just switched to Sony's mirrorless system I went for another Nauticam housing. It's great to see the quality is only improving. The housing ergonomics are great, it looks and feels very durable. The housing is super easy to open and close and if you add the vacuum valve it gives you that extra peace of mind that you're camera will stay dry. They have improved the camera tray and it easy to slide in the housing and feels very secure. The ports are easy and quick to attach, for this housing you will need the port adapter for wide angle lenses which adds an extra o-ring to deal with. The only negative I found was did that the focus knob on the port adapter gets in the way a bit, other then that I really have nothing bad to say about this setup. It's smaller size and lighter weight compared to most DSLR housings is a nice bonus, the image and video quality this camera can produce is amazing.
You have the option to use fiber optic strobe connections if you add the flash trigger to your setup, this makes setting up the strobes very quick as there's no o-rings to deal with.
Overall another very good housing from Nauticam.
Loving this housing!
I just switched to the Sony A7II and Tommy at Bluewater Photo introduced me to a few underwater housing options, explained the features of each, and got my hands demo equipment to feel my way around.
The ergonomics of the Nauticam Housing is best in class. All the features I need for shooting underwater are right at my finger tips without having to awkwardly stretch. Being able to change ports and lenses without removing the camera body from the housing (yes, lenses too!) is my favourite feature along with the vacuum seal alarm.
Thank you to Tommy and to Nauticam for this housing!!
I have now logged two dive trips with this housing-Little Cayman and Cozumel. The housing is right sized and controls are ergonomically located to facilitate getting the "right" shot or video. Durability is key in getting the camera and housing on and off the boat. This housing exceeds that criterion. I'm still learning all the capability of the housing and camera and hope to someday be as good as my equipment.
