The housing supports both the RED V-RAPTOR 8K VV and the RED KOMODO through an optional tray (16250). It is engineered in a similar fashion to previous DSMC2 LT and Komodo housings, providing the most compact and travel friendly system possible. Raptor offers seamless integration with DSLR lenses and the same N120 port system used in Nauticam DSLR and Cinema systems. Enjoy unmatched user friendly setup and intuitive operation including tool-less setup and tear down in minutes. Batteries can be swapped without ever removing the camera from the housing, and lens changes can be accomplished in seconds.
In addition to Nauticam's traditional full mechanical control, the Raptor housing also integrates a series of electronic controls with backlighting. These controls can access Iris+/-, Shut+/-, ISO+/-, WB on the left side of the housing and Pre-Record, FPS+/-, Playback, Play/Pause, Magnify and Tools on the top of the housing.
The RED V-RAPTOR 8K features a Canon RF lens mount, but Canon EF lenses are also supported through the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor. The Nauticam Raptor housing offers full support of Canon RF lenses along with the Canon EF to EOS R adaptor and the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor with Variable ND Filter or Control Ring.
Not being limited to using DSLR lenses is crucial for cinema systems and the Nauticam Raptor housing, when used with the 16410 N120 to N200 Port Adapter can support the use of select Cinema Lenses and the associated N200 Port System.
In additional to the large window for viewing the Raptor's 2.4" LCD screen, Nauticam offers an optional rear housing back for the Portkeys BM5WR monitor (16610). This allows the monitor to be viewed by the camera operator from a natural filming position and provides an extremely streamlined system. The monitor back features control buttons to access the various tools offered by the BM5WR.
The SmallHD 503 Ultrabright or the Atomos Ninja V monitor can be mounted in the external Nauticam NA-503-S or Nauticam Atomos Ninja V-S housings and be connected via SDI bulkheads and cables allowing greater flexibility when positioning the monitor on the Nauticam Raptor housing.
The RED V-RAPTOR 8K VV has an integrated Micro V-Lock battery interface. Swapping batteries is as simple as opening the housing as the camera does not need to be removed to access the batteries. The following batteries are supported within the housing:
- REDVOLT Micro-V 98Wh
- Anton Bauer Titon Micro V-Mount 45Wh/98Wh/140Wh
- bebob V-MICRO 45Wh/98Wh/150Wh/200Wh
- Core SWX NANO Micro 98Wh/147Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (V-Mount)
- Fxlion NANO ONE/TWO Ultra Compact 50Wh/98Wh
- Hawk-Woods Mini V-Lok 14.4V 98Wh/150Wh Li-Ion Battery
- IDX System Technology Imicro-150 14.5V 97Wh/145Wh Li-Ion V mount battery
- SWIT PB-M98S 14.4V 98Wh Pocket Battery with D-Tap and USB Output (V-Mount)
While the Nauticam Raptor housing is engineered to allow for full control by the operator, it also supports an ethernet surface feed in 5m (pole cam) and 45m (studio) lengths. Within the housing, there is space to install a USB-C to Ethernet adaptor which would allow for full control of the camera at the surface through the RedControl App.
VACUUM CHECK AND LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM
The Nauticam Raptor housing features Nauticam's field-tested Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System that provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. By drawing a slight vacuum inside the housing using a reliable and compact manual hand-pump, the system is able to insure water-tightness before entering the water as well as throughout the dive. A simple color-coded LED lighting system, easily visible at the rear of the housing 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.
