For sale: Nauticam NA-DP4 housing monitor and SmallHD 4.3" monitor
This housing and monitor were built in 2012, and they have worked well with a Canon 7D, Nikon D800, and Nikon D7000. Both the housing and the monitor are in excellent cosmetic condition and perfect working condition.
With the above (and likely newer Canon and Nikon bodies), this was and is a fabulous tool for any stills or video shooter, as the monitor/housing worked well and quickly (without a lot of steps required) with those cameras for both stills and video shooting. I used it often, and it became essential when I was shooting video. I stopped using it a lot about two years ago when I started using a Panasonic GH4 camera.
I ended up using the GH4 body's LCD screen for most of my shooting, particularly wide shots for stills and video, and the LCD screen worked great. I used the monitor/housing for those occasions when I was shooting macro and needed to see the image over the camera body. It took a while to sync up (requires you to power the camera, monitor etc up in a particular sequence) but once it got going in video mode, it worked well. I would not use this monitor with the GH4 to shoot stills -- it is too slow to show an image preview and then go back to live view.
It's a testament to the durability and design of the smallHD monitor and the Nauticam housing that it still works after three generations of digital camera technology.
The smallHD housing comes with a battery plate that accepts two Canon type LP-E6 batteries.
Complete with everything in the photos: SmallHD monitor, housing, moisture sensor, mounting ball, non-OEM charger and two batteries (Canon type LP-E6).
HDMI bulkhead (Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve, p/n# 25611) and internal HDMI cord also included. If we agree on a purchase, I'll look in my workshop and will include any other accessories that came with the SmallHD monitor -- but the above will be all you need to get underwater.
Asking $875. Please confirm with an expert (I am not one) whether this system will work with your camera and housing. It's made for Nauticam housings and will install in one of their bulkhead holes (I think size M12). I am happy to send this out for evaluation after we discuss the situation via email, but any buyer wishing to return these items will have to pay the return shipping as well as the outbound shipping.
