Nauticam NA-R Underwater Housing for Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera
Innovation, ergonomics, and reliability are the hallmarks of the Nauticam brand and are brought to new heights with the Nauticam underwater housing for the Canon EOS M50 camera. Key controls are placed within an easy reach from the ergonomic, rubberized handles with unmatched ease of use. Controls on the housing are placed exactly where they should be for easiest access in water, regardless of the camera layout.
For the underwater shooter looking to move into an interchangeable lens camera system with a large APS-C sensor, the 24MP Canon EOS M50 is a feature-rich yet budget friendly option. Adding Dual Pixel Autofocus with 99 selectable points, 4K/24p UHD video (with a 1.7x crop) and a built-in EVF the EOS M50 sits between the EOS M100 and M6. The M50 also allow for the capture of images in Canon's new CR3 Raw format that allows for full-resolution compressed RAW capture.
Three in-house Nauticam optical designs, designed by founder and Managing Director Edward Lai, are the perfect lenses to complete an EOS M50 underwater system. The magic of the wet lenses is their tremendous versatility, paired with outstanding in-water performance. Both macro and super wide angle optics are available to the underwater photographer on the same dive. These lenses are completely engineered for use in water, providing the highest image quality available today in a wet mount optic.
WWL-1 is a wide angle conversion lens, compatible with several lenses in the Canon EF-M system. Paired with the 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM the WWL-1 provides 100 degree diagonal field of view with full zoom-through. This combination provides class leading center sharpness, corner sharpness, and contrast which results in the clearest wide angle images possible underwater.
Flash Connectors for Inon S-TTL, Sea & Sea DS-TTL
Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with the NA-EM50 and a variety of optically fired flashes. The Inon Z-330, Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, and Sea & Sea YS-D1/YS-D2J strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s onboard flash at a proportionally greater intensity. This system yields accurate automatic TTL flash performance – even in manual mode – with no electrical sync cables to flood! The NA-EM50 comes fiber optic ready and accepts standard Sea & Sea style bushing connections. Nauticam Fiber Optic cables, compatible with both Inon and Sea & Sea strobes, provide the best light transmission and therefore more accurate TTL of any fiber optic cable on the market.
Strobes and light arms can be attached to the housing via included 1″ accessory mounting balls.
Electrical strobe triggering (with power set manually on the flash head) is still an option for those with an investment in legacy lighting gear, requiring the purchase of an accessory electrical bulkhead.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-EM50 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.
