The NA-RX100VI sets a new standard for compact camera housing design. It is the ultimate refinement of the models that came before it, and proven in the field.
Nauticam designs are always improving, and new features integrated into each new release. The ergonomic experience has been tailored for a photographer's right hand on the side of the housing, placing key controls literally at the users finger tips. Some users, especially those wearing cold water gloves, prefer shooting from handles such as the Nauticam Flexitray. To better support this style of shooting, a set of stainless steel handle brackets and a mechanical shutter release trigger extension is included with every housing.
The RX100VI housings moves to an interchangeable N50 port system, meaning in addition to attaching a number of different wet mount lenses a variety of dedicated ports are also available. A compact camera underwater is only as good as the optics in front of it, and the growing Nauticam accessory lens lineup sets new performance standards with every release.
All Nauticam accessory lenses are engineered specifically for underwater imaging, not waterproof adaptations of lenses designed for use in air, resulting in superior image quality. The Nauticam macro accessories provide visibly sharper images than competing macro lenses, especially in the corders, with noticeably less purple fringing. The lens design is also designed with autofocus systems in mind, easing the learning curve associated with high magnification imaging.
The NA-RX100VI features an interchangeable N50 port system. This port system allows for several different configurations to meet every shooting situation from super wide angle to super macro. The Standard Port, included with the NA-RX100VI allows for full zoom through of the 24-200mm equivalent lens.
The optional N50 Short Port with Bayonet Mount (38703) allows for the mounting of both the WWL-1 and CMC-1 wet optics to the NA-RX100VI. The short port is limited to a maximum focal length (zoom) of 70mm.
The NA-RX100VI features a built-in fiber optic flash bulkhead that is driven by the camera's pop-up flash. The flash can be deployed or stowed while in the housing to allow for both artificial and natural light shooting. The RX-100VI features a flash sync speed of 1/2000 of a second.
Integrated Vacuum Monitoring and Leak Detection
Circuitry included as standard equipment provides constant monitoring of water tight integrity when combined with an optional Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve II (25624).
With the optional HDMI bulkhead connected to the M16 accessory hole the NA-RX100VI can be used with the SmallHD 501/502 Monitors (in the NA-502h housing, p/n 17906). The camera offers "clean" HDMI output, allowing high bit rate Apple ProRes recording at up to 4k 30P with supported external recorders.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-RX100VI as standard equipment. Combined with an accessory vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple color coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, an audible and visual indication will occur.
The Nauticam system is temperature compensated, eliminating false alarms caused by a change in outside temperature, or from a camera heating up on an action packed dive.
