The NA-EOSM5 Housing
A quick look at the Canon EOS M5 camera reveals body styling that is clearly inherited from the ergonomically excellent Canon EOS DSLR series. That same strategy is revealed in the NA-EOSM5, incorporating all of the functionality of Nauticam DSLR systems in an extremely compact package.
The housing is small, but not at the expense of functionality or ergonomics. Integrated handles provide a sturdy and comfortable base to operate the system from. An ergonomic shutter release lever and well placed control dials provide excellent tactile feel. Important pushbuttons, such as * (for focus/exposure lock) and video record are placed within easy reach of the handles. Camera controls have sufficient spacing to allow easy operation, even by feel.
This is a rugged housing, ready to tackle thousands of hours of underwater abuse. Crafted from solid aircraft aluminum, the housing can reach depths of 100m with ease. The secure single rotating housing latch opens the housing back. The camera drops in easily. The rear mounted housing o-ring makes maintenance simple. Dual fiber optic synch ports are standard and take advantage of the cameras pop-up flash for strobe triggering. To make the most of the excellent EOS M5 electronic view finder (EVF), Nauticam allows for installation of the acclaimed 45º and 180º magnified viewfinders, providing the ultimate in clear composition and focus ability.
The NA-EOSM5 is a professional grade underwater housing, supporting the outstanding EOS M5 camera body to its full potential.
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 (PN 25624). Green means safe to dive!
A clear view for fine focus and composition is critical for successful underwater photography, and nothing beats a magnifying viewfinder. These viewfinders use distance, not closeup vision, and provide a large, clear view of the high resolution, 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder on the EOS M5. Available in angled 45º (PN 32205) and Straight (PN 32204) formats, both viewfinders have external dioptric adjustments for dialing in perfect correction matched to the photographer's eyesight.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-EOSM5 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple 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.
Flash Connectors for Optical TTL
Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with the NA-EOSM5 and a variety of optically fired flashes. The Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, and Sea & Sea YS-D1/YS-D2 strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s pop-up flash at a proportionally greater intensity. This system yields accurate automatic TTL flash performance – even in manual exposure mode - with no electrical sync cables to flood! The NA-EOSM5 comes fiber optic ready and accepts standard Sea & Sea style bushing connections. Nauticam Universal fiber optic cable system (26216) for Inon, Sea&Sea strobes, provide exceptional light transmission for accurate TTL performance.
