Nauticam Sony A7C II Underwater Housing
This Nauticam housing fits both the Sony A7C II and the Sony A7CR
Nauticam sets the industry bar of excellence for aluminum underwater housings. The Nauticam housing for Sony A7C II lives up to their reputation. As a trailblazer in the field, Nauticam stands at the forefront of mirrorless interchangeable lens underwater camera support. With an unparalleled track record, Nauticam has accommodated more mirrorless cameras, particularly Sony E Mount cameras, than any other housing manufacturer in the industry. This extensive experience has culminated in the development of a housing line that is not only the most refined but also boasts the widest array of accessories available in the market today.
At the heart of Nauticam's innovation lies its pioneering range of optical accessories, each designed to elevate performance to unprecedented heights. From magnifying viewfinders to the most exceptionally sharp super macro accessory lenses ever crafted, and the introduction of top-tier water contact wide-angle lenses like the remarkable WWL-1 and WACP-1, every element seamlessly integrates with the NA-A7CII housing to create an all-encompassing imaging system.
Ergonomics and user experience are the cornerstones of Nauticam's reputation. Critical controls are meticulously positioned at the photographer's fingertips, ensuring effortless access. The housing and accompanying accessories have been engineered for lightweight maneuverability and hassle-free assembly. With a design that allows the camera to be easily inserted without the need for control presetting and facilitates seamless lens port changes, Nauticam once again redefines user convenience.
Distinguished by the integration of a handle system, the NA-A7CII model showcases an ergonomic layout that guarantees unparalleled control, even while wearing thick gloves. The strategic placement of the shutter release and a thumb lever for activating the AF-ON button on the right handle exemplifies the thoughtful design that sets Nauticam apart.
The exceptional build quality that Nauticam is renowned for has garnered praise from underwater photographers globally. Machined from a single block of aluminum and further fortified with hard anodization, the housing becomes impervious to the corrosive effects of saltwater. Complemented by marine-grade stainless steel and durable plastic components, the housing is accompanied by a two-year warranty that safeguards against manufacturing defects.
Fast & Reliable Triggering - When combined with the LED Flash Trigger, the NA-A7CII offers dependable, quick-fire manual flash triggering for a range of optically fired flashes. Accepting the Universal Fiber Optic Cable, the NA-A7CII is fiber optic ready out of the box.
The housing can be fitted with strobes and light arms using the 1′′ accessory mounting balls that come with it.
If you still use electronic sync cables, the housing can offer electrical strobe triggering, but you will need to buy an additional electrical bulkhead.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System - The NA-A7CII is standard equipment for the Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system. When used in conjunction with an optional vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system offers continuous updates on the housing's watertightness and safety for diving. The user can be informed whether the housing is losing vacuum or if the vacuum is solid using a straightforward coded LED illumination system. Since leak detection is integrated into the same circuit, there will be a visual and auditory alert in the event of a water intrusion.
