The Nauticam NA-70D Underwater Housing for Canon is the latest in its acclaimed line of precision crafted underwater camera housings. Nauticam is the international leader in innovative housing technology, and the new housing for the Canon 70D capitalizes on that experience. Features include a new, totally integrated electronic vacuum check system and a host of refinements such as very clever weight reduction techniques and advanced galvanic corrosion prevention.

Nauticam pioneered numerous engineering breakthroughs in previous housings that now come standard on the NA-70D. Like the NA-6D, this new housing borrows a control from it's Nikon brethren the patent pending Multi Controller Pad that is located within easy reach of the right thumb. The Multi Controller Pad allows full multidirectional use of the 8-way controller, while still allowing for the rear command dial to be brought out to the right side of the housing. This control is especially interesting with the 70D using the video autofocus with a light touch, the user can change the focus during a video clip, allowing for "focus pull" and other advanced shots. No other housing manufacturer has this, and none come close to achieving this kind of ergonomic access to the 8-way controller.

Nauticam is pleased to announce that the NA-70D is the first housing to ship with Nauticam's new vacuum system with integrated electronic vacuum and leak detection system. Now the operator can, at a glance, instantly see the vacuum/watertight status of the housing. A simple coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, a audible and visual indication will occur. The NA-70D ships with a 3rd bulkhead port specifically for the vacuum system, leaving the user two other bulkhead ports for HDMI, sync cables and other accessories. More information about this system and availability for other Nauticam housings will be forthcoming.

The patented Locking Latch System, used to close and securely lock the housing, has received acclaim worldwide for its ease and functionality. These recessed latches are equipped with safety locks, reduce bulk and require minimal physical effort to engage and release. Port changes have never been simpler than utilizing the Patented Nauticam Locking Port Release. No wrestling, no twisting, no misalignment - just seat and lock.

Lens changes are also easily accomplished without removing the camera from the housing using the lens release button logically accessed on the housing front. The lightweight, rugged Nauticam handles are generously contoured with a durable over-mold process of comfortable non-slip rubber.

The Nauticam brand has quickly become synonymous with superior ergonomics in all their underwater camera housings. The NA-70D will only enhance that reputation. Every control is well thought out. Every button, lever and switch is considered not in terms of what is easier for the designer, but what is best for the shooter. A careful look at the engineering and design of the right hand side of this housing reveals this philosophy in practice. The key shooting controls are all easily accessed with the right hand with very little finger movement required. While the controls may look daunting to those new to Nauticam, after a few shots the controls become second nature. Shoot, change aperture, shoot, change shutter speed, flip to video, change shutter speed, start recording, change ISO - all with the thumb and forefinger, and all done quickly and easily.

The quality of an image is only as good as the glass it was captured with, and Nauticam firmly believes that every lens that makes sense to be used underwater should be supported. The APS-C sensor on the 70D allows use of a wide range of lenses that are widely known for their underwater capabilities. Lenses like the Tokina 10-17mm and the Canon EF-S 60mm are true workhorses in the Canon underwater domain. Nauticam carefully evaluates new lenses, and is often first to market with support when a new lens is offered. Nauticam also provides the industry’s only locking extension rings in every size potentially required, thus preventing port slippage when using extension rings. Nauticam additionally offers a full range of port adapters allowing existing housing owners to use their current ports, reducing the cost of switching to a Nauticam housing. Port Adapters are available for Aquatica, Ikelite, Inon, Nexus M5 & M6, Sea & Sea NX, Seacam, Subal Version 3 & 4, and Zillion lens ports.

A high resolution camera like the Canon 70D demands perfect focus for optimal results. Fortunately, Nauticam has developed the most user-friendly interchangeable precision viewfinders in the world. The standard optical glass viewfinder is very good and travel friendly, but many photographers prefer the ease of a magnified viewfinder with adjustable diopter. Nauticam produces a straight 180 degrees enlarging viewfinder and a 45o angled enlarging viewfinder to enhance the ease of close quarters work often associated with macro shooting. Both viewfinders have high quality optics allow viewing of the entire image. A patented external dioptric adjustment allows personal adjustment to a sharp-as-a-tack standard underwater and viewfinder changes can be executed in less than 30 seconds without using tools. Exceptional composition and focus accuracy have never been more accessible.

Nauticam’s NA-DP4 housing for the Small HD DP4 Monitor can take video performance to another level by rendering the video image in a position more amenable to the shooter. The monitor housing easily mounts to the top of the NA-70D and utilizes the optional HDMI Bulkhead for true HDMI connectivity. Utilizing DP4 features like Focus Peaking, Focus Assist, False Color, 1:1 Mapping and more, this larger monitor vastly improves composition, focus capability and exposure.
