The image flip can be turned off and it's not intrusive. I haven't had it flip on me unless I was tipping the camera to the extreme. How you describe your use of the camera is exactly why I have it set this way. It's really easy to adjust in this orientation.

 

I have the camera's built in screen turned off and I can get to the buttons and dials just fine. Attached are some bad iphone pics to give you an idea. I have the tilt adjust in several positions. It adjusts easily underwater. Positioned behind the camera it's less of a sail in current, but it still creates drag.

 

Thanks for the images, really helps appreciate scale.

 

Looks like an extra long clamp, and that the monitor can swing into a few different orientations easily.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the images,

 

Kind of what I recall from the marketing materials, but it does seem to tuck in tight behind the camera. Must feel like a brick underwater without the floats ;-)

 

Can you still access the top and front buttons / dials easily?

 

Am thinking cost wise I will going for one of the other two...

 

Regards,

I'm about to pull the trigger on either the DNC-7A or the DNC-5A. Any reccomendation as between the two? Phisically, they seem to be roughly the same size, with the 7A being neutral and the 5A 300g negative.

I also have the nauticam small hd setup.  I do like the idea of flipping it upside down.  Never thought about that before.  

 

I also like the nauticam setup and personally don't know how I did it without it in the past.   The focus peaking is a huge selling factor for me.  I also find the color to be pretty good as well.  It is very easy to use as well with different modes depending on what you want to see.  You can flip between them with 1 button push.  There are some cons however that I think Nauticam could address.

 

-The HDMI cable is very finicky.  I always travel with a spare cable and bulkhead.

-The housing is larger than it needs to be.

-The shade is an addon that is ridiculously priced.  But I do like it.  Especially for shallow water.

I agree, for the price Nauticam charge for external HDMI cables, they need to be more than 'normal' HDMI cables with added bulkheads...

 

I had the cable on my NA-FLAME dead on arrival, thankfully Nauticam replaced it FoC for me, but I was quoted in excess of £320 for a replacement. Which is way way too much

The problem is that Nauticam uses a micro HDMI plug to connect to the bulkhead, which is a flimsy connection by definition... DiveandSee uses a mini HDMI, being quite a bit more solid in my view.
