Key Camera Specifications:






The NA-E2F follows suit with the original NA-E2 as one of the lightest and smallest raw-capable cinema housings ever produced. Nauticam has been a leader in cinema housings with offerings for RED, ARRI, Canon, PhantomFlex, Sony and now Z Cam.

The NA-E2F uses the N120 Cinema port system, shared with Nauticam’s other N120 platform cameras which allows for easy transition to the NA-E2F from other N120 Nauticam systems. The N120 system also provides access to Nauticam’s line of professional premium optics such as the WACP-1/2 and SMC-1/2.

The Z Cam E2-M4 can be used with either the Z Cam EF Mount or using the native MFT mount with Metabones EF-MFT Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adaptor. When using the Metabones Speed Booster, the mounting position of the camera tray must be adjusted by the user.

There are 17 LANC control buttons ergonomically placed around the housing including dedicated iris+/iris-, record, focus near/focus far, eND+/eND-, and many more. 1/4”-20 size mounting threads are located on the top and bottom of the housing for easy mounting of cinema accessories.

The NA-E2F supports an ethernet surface feed in 5m (pole cam) and 45m (studio) lengths. The Z Cam E2 lineup offers a wide range of remote control options including live preview over ethernet. This opens up the option of using an ethernet to lighting adaptor, then having an iPad or iPhone on the surface to allow monitoring and full control via the Z Cam app.

The housing also features adjustable handles with cinema style zoom and focus knobs.

The E2 lineup supports Sony NP-F series batteries and the NA-E2F matches this compatibility up to and including the FP-970.

As with the NA-BMPCC2 and NA-E2, the NA-E2F allows for the internal mounting of a Samsung T-5 SSD drive as recording media making the transition from capture to edit seamless.

The Z Cam E2 lineup requires an external monitor and Nauticam produces several options for both SmallHD and Atomos monitors. To access the 12-Bit ProRes RAW Recording, you will need to use the Atomos Ninja V monitor with the Nauticam Ninja V housing.

The NA-E2F features both an M28 and four M16 bulkheads supporting both HDMI 2.0 (M28) and HDMI 1.4 (M16) connections.



Unveiled on the very first Nauticam DSLR housing in 2009, this locking lever has become a signature of the Nauticam brand. No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever. Nauticam also offers locking port extensions, meaning a dome will never twist, even when used with a long extension ring.


Nauticam engineers are driven to make the housings as easy and intuitive to insure you don’t miss a shot. The NA-E2F has 17 LANC control buttons ergonomically placed around the housing allowing easy reach of the controls you need most.


The NA-E2F features an M28 bulkhead to support HDMI 2.0 output as well as four M16 bulkheads for HDMI 1.4 allowing for the use of a variety of external monitors and recorders.
