The Nauticam NA-GH3 Underwater Housing for Panasonic GH3/GH4 was designed by underwater photographers to maximize control of the camera to facilitate the creative process for both still shooting and video, all in a rugged housing machined from solid aluminum and depth rated to 100 meters. All Nauticam housings are designed for ease of use and maintenance and the NA-GH3 builds on this solid foundation. The groundbreaking features of previous housings are present such as the effortless (but secure) single rotating housing latch and the patented port latching system. A rear mounted housing o-ring makes maintenance easier than ever, while a threaded bulkhead port allows for an HDMI or electrical strobe synch bulkhead installation – advanced features often omitted by other housing manufacturers. Dual fiber optic synch ports are standard and take advantage of the GH3 popup flash. To make the most of the GH3’s excellent EVF, Nauticam has crafted an optional rear acrylic display window (p/n 17751) that encompasses a mount for installation of Nauticam’s acclaimed 45º and 180º magnified view finders for the ultimate in composition and focus ability.

Port changes are easy using 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. Optional handles on the Nauticam Flexitray are generously contoured with a durable over-mold process of comfortable non-slip rubber.

The Panasonic GH3/GH4 has a very large number of external controls/buttons, so designing a housing that manages all of these controls in a way that is logical, easy to use and adds to the user experience is quite a challenge. As has become the norm, the Nauticam design team has not only taken on the challenge but has succeeded in producing an ergonomic housing that bring all of that control to the users fingertips. The GH3 has a touchscreen interface that is not supported underwater; however, Nauticam has carefully evaluated the functionality of the external controls to ensure that all functions needed underwater can be accessed by the well placed housing controls.

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. Nauticam’s lineup of ports, together with Zen Underwater dome ports is the most complete and extensive in the industry. Nauticam carefully evaluates new lenses, and is often first to market with support when a new lens is offered. Nauticam is the only manufacturer to fully support the Olympus 12-50mm lens to take advantage of it’s macro mode. The new Panasonic 12-35mm lens is supported as well as reliable choices like the Panasonic 8mm, the Panasonic 7-14mm, the Olympus 9-18, Panasonic 45mm macro, Olympus 60mm macro, and all of the 14-42mm lenses from both Panasonic and Olympus.

A high resolution camera like the Panasonic GH3 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” 180º 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-GH3 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.

The Panasonic GH3 is a video enthusiasts dream camera, offering unmatched video features and quality, while still offering excellent still camera functionality. The GH3/GH4 with the NA-GH3 is the perfect partnership for the independent filmmaker to document the world underwater.
