Designed to focus and capture images in even the lowest possible light conditions, the D6 is a natural choice for the underwater image maker. The camera’s 105-point cross-type AF system reduces the amount of non-AF-sensitive areas in the frame and with the new 17 custom Group Area AF function, autofocus can be tuned to match the scene type. Acquisition is possible at down to even -4.5EV. The D6 can shoot at up to 14fps continuous shooting at ISO levels up to 102,400 (expandable to 3,280,000). The low pixel-density sensor and EXPEED 6 insure the lowest image noise possible at even higher ISO levels.

In addition to still images, the D6 captures UHD 4K video with an ~1.5x crop factor at up to 30p. An HDMI output allows for the use of external monitors and recorders. A 1000BASE-T LAN connection also allows for external control or image transfer at speeds up to 15% faster than with the D5.

The Nikon D6 features 14 customizable controls, allowing the user quick access to their most needed functions. The Custom Settings Menu can hold up to four custom shooting combinations making switching between different scene types faster and more reliable.

The EN-EL18c Li-ion battery delivers up to 3,580 shots per charge or up to 105 minutes of video recording. The D6 features dual XQD/CFexpress card slots which can be setup to record in an overflow or backup configuration.


Nauticam’s lineup of aluminum housings are designed with the user in mind offering easy assembly, proven durability, intuitive control placement and an extensive range of optics and accessories. The NA-D6 is designed specifically for the Nikon D6 to take advantage of the camera’s customizability and powerful autofocus features.


Gone are the days of fumbling around for the right button as the action passes you bye. The NA-D6 is designed with the Nauticam’s Mission Control philosophy, placing the most used controls within easy reach from the ergonomic handles. The NA-D6 features double thumb levers at the rear of the housing that trigger the AF-ON and REC buttons of the camera on the right side and PLAYBACK/INFO on the left. For the NA-D6 they’ve been moved slightly forward to allow even easier access. Nested levers for ISO and the ‘Pv’ control are also located near the right handle for easy access. A dual action lever for ‘Fn1’ and ‘Fn2’ customizable buttons on the front of the camera has been redesigned for enhanced usability from the left handle.


Connectivity to external monitors via HDMI or external controls over Ethernet are facilitated through the bulkheads of the NA-D6. The housing has M28 and M14 bulkheads at the front and a rear M16.

Check the Resources section for compatible monitor and ethernet configurations.


The NA-D6 ships with a pre-installed manual LED flash trigger which provides reliable flash triggering for the majority of optically triggered external underwater strobes. Strobe power must still be adjusted on the strobe itself. A TTL version of the flash trigger (26308) is also available to provide automatic exposure control with compatible strobes. These flash triggers are self powered by replaceable batteries.


Even a camera as capable as the D6 is only as good as the glass in front of it. The Nauticam N120 Port System supports a wide variety of Nikon F Mount lenses with both optical0-glass and acrylic port options. For those looking for even higher optical quality and flexibility, The NA-D6 can also take advantage of Nauticam’s water-contact optics. Wide Angle Conversion Lenses such as the WACP-1, WACP-2 provide up to 140º of ultra-sharp wide-angle coverage with a ~0” minimum focus distance. For super-macro the SMC-1 and SMC-2 deliver up to 4x magnification when used with compatible lenses expanding what is possible underwater. Nauticam’s magnifying viewfinders, available in both 45º and 180º versions allow for easier use of the D6’s large, bright optical viewfinder and can be installed in minutes without tools.



Since 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.


The industry’s easiest to use housing closure system, requiring very little hand strength to operate, secures the housing back in place. The latches are safely locked to prevent accidental opening, but are easy to open when needed for a quick battery or memory card change.


The NA-D6 is mission control for your underwater photography. The housing features controls that are placed just where you need them including dual thumb levers and dedicated FN1/FN2 as well as ISO/Pv.


Connectivity to external monitors via HDMI or external controls over Ethernet are facilitated through the bulkheads of the NA-D6. The housing has M28 and M14 bulkheads at the front and a rear M16.
