In Topic: Sony A7S for 4K - what a disappointment

14 April 2014 - 06:22 AM

Hi All,


We were able to check out the A7S at NAB, and verify that it does work properly in the Nauticam A7 housing. The body is identical physically, but does weigh a bit more due to the extra heat sink.





In Topic: Will the new Panasonic GH4 fit in the Nauticam na-gh3 housing?

I think this is a little premature...from my quick test at NAB with a pre-production camera, I saw that there was an issue with the mode dial being too tall, and it will need to be looked at once we get a production camera. All of the other controls seemed to work well with the pre-production camera I was able to try. It seems likely that we can offer a little retrofit kit to make it work. The Panasonic rep told me cameras should start arriving in the US around the end of April. We will be keen to get our hands on one and get a solution out asap. 







Hi folks,

Good news I believe :)


In Topic: Upcoming Panasonic GH-4K

I had a chance to handle the GH4 at NAB, or at least a pre-production version. While it does indeed fit in the Nauticam GH3 housing, the mode dial is too tall and the control does not sit correctly. I think it will be a relatively simple upgrade to make it work. All of the other controls that I was able to try worked, though there are other things that would need to be checked, like alignment. The Panasonic folks said that they anticipate the first batch of production cameras to be shipped around the 1st of May, at least to the US. 




In Topic: Nauticam NA EM 1 failure

The ultimate bummer occurred this afternoon. After 3 dives at Sorido Bay Resort in Raja Ampat, the Rear Dial knob gear fell off the shaft loosing the Rear Dial knob shaft to move freely in the hole and if not careful pull out of the housing.


2 years of planning and money for a once in a lifetime  2 week stay down the tubes. I rather doubt they will overnight me a new housing.


Everyone should check their housings to make sure that the gear or gears with a shaft through the housing is secure. It would appear that the keeper for the gear either fell out or was never installed.


I have sent a email to Nauticam USA as it was back side of the clock here to talk to anyone there. 


My serial number is A064698


Sucks to be me.



Hi Jay,


We received your email and have sent an initial reply. Please check that and we'll have more info for you soon.

Holy shit, Simon. That is soooo awesome. 




I also did a few tests:


In this first one the video camera is a similar crop to a 7D.


The images in this comparison were on a 5Dmk3 with a 1.4 so you can get a similar crop on your 7D:  http://nad-lembeh.co...-vs-mpe-65.html


Tomorrow i'm hoping to get the TC on the crop for crazy macro :)
