Nauticam is pleased to announce the Nauticam NA-RX100 Underwater Housing for Sony RX-100 Camera for the groundbreaking new Sony DSC RX100 compact digital camera. Nauticam continues to bring professional quality engineering to those who enjoy the attributes of state of the art compact imaging systems. The NA-RX100 should prove to be the housing of choice for demanding enthusiasts who want to capitalize on everything this exciting new camera has to offer in a user-friendly package that anyone can master.
Nauticam has set the standard for professional grade aluminum housings for the compact digital camera market segment. This experience and sophisticated design evolution is obvious from the moment the NA-RX100 is picked up. It is hard to imagine that a 21MP tour de force underwater rig can rest in the palm of one hand. Many of the industry leading features found on previous Nauticam housings are clearly evident. The intuitive single rotating housing latch, rugged machined aluminum case and 100 meter depth rating are now well proven. A new rear mounted housing o-ring makes maintenance easier than ever and the patented two stage shutter release provides the best “feel” in the business. Nauticam is famous for its ergonomic innovation; these housings are often easier to control than the features on the camera body itself. The NA-RX100 is a perfect example of this with every button and control clearly labeled and easy to access – even with gloves on. This housing is designed by photographers and engineers to capitalize on every ounce of potential from both camera and photographer alike. Front and Rear command dials are readily available to forefinger and thumb while never releasing grip. Manual aperture and shutter speed adjustment is a snap; as is white balance, ISO, drive modes, shooting modes and video recording.
The RX-100 features a standard 67mm thread on the port positioned precisely for maximum wide-angle lens performance. Also unique in this market segment is the ability to manually focus the RX100 when desired through the front command dial. Macro shooters in particular should enjoy the manual focus with focus peaking option to dial in those subjects using a strong close up wet lens such as a +10 diopter. The use of Nauticam’s new 67mm Flip Lens Holder makes this type of macro work easier than ever.
Wide-angle accessory lens compatibility is crucial for underwater photography, and RX100 when paired with Inon UWL-H100 28 M67 Type 2 is an excellent option. This system enables images with a wide 100 degree angle of view, sharp corners, and no vignetting! The system also benefits from Inon’s optional Dome Unit II, a 145 degree lens that focuses on the front of the lens for exceptional close focus wide-angle photography.
If a serious underwater photographer wants maximum digital capability in the smallest package possible, the NA-RX100 is the clear choice for success.
Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with Nauticam housings and a variety of optically fired flashes. Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, Sea & Sea YS-110 Alpha, YS-01 and YS-D1strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s onboard flash at a proportionally greater intensity. This system yields accurate TTL flash performance with no electrical sync cables to flood! The NA-RX100 comes fiber optic ready and accepts standard Sea & Sea style bushing connections.
Strobes can be attached to the housing via optional strobe mounting balls on the handles or a single strobe mounting ball point on the housing. The housing also features a cold-shoe mount for even more mounting options
