Nauticam NA-D4S Housing for Nikon D4/D4S DSLR Camera
The new D4S underwater photo housing includes the latest vacuum system electronics, and when the optional M16 valve is added, the system provides significant peace-of-mind and lets the shooter focus on shooting, not worrying about the housing.
Other improvements include lightweight handle brackets, improved galvanic protection, new style focus knobs with higher gear ratio, and 3 standard sized tripod sockets. The housing also features an integrated reflective prism to facilitate the use of the new Flash Trigger for Nikon.
The NA-D4S supports both the D4S and the D4 cameras. The NA-D4S comes in two different configurations, one with 2 Nikonos Bulkheads installed (for shooters utilizing Nikonos style sync cables) and a version without the bulkheads (for shooters utilizing the Flash Trigger).
Flash Trigger for Nikon
Nauticam is now producing a Flash Trigger a version for Nikon, and it is an ideal solution for the Nikon NA-D4S. NA-D800 and NA-D600. This allows for speed and convenience since the pop-up flash is no longer the gating factor, the result is faster recycle, less heat build-up and better battery life. Shooting with Fiber Optic cables means shooting with confidence since there are no cables to flood or corrode, meaning much higher reliability, and the strobe can even be removed from the rig, while underwater, for off-board lighting opportunities. This flash trigger is manual only; automatic flash exposure (TTL) is not currently enabled. The Flash Trigger is a tool for reliable, fast external flash firing in manual flash mode. Supported strobes include the Inon Z-240 Type 4, D-2000 Type 4, S-2000, Sea & Sea YS-250, YS-01, and YS-D1.
Standard Features that are Anything But Standard
Nauticam pioneered numerous engineering breakthroughs in previous housings that have been integrated into NA-D4S. The housing Locking Latch System has received acclaim worldwide for its ease and functionality. These recessed latches are equipped with safety locks to eliminate accidental opening, yet require minimal hands strength to operate. These locking latches will not pinch fingers like stainless steel buckles can.
Port changes have never been simpler than utilizing the Patented Nauticam Locking Port Release. No wrestling, no twisting, no misalignment - just seat and lock. Lens changes are also easily accomplished without removing the camera from the housing via the lens release button logically accessed on the housing front. The lightweight, rugged Nauticam handles are generously contoured with a durable over-mold process of comfortable non-slip soft touch rubber. Virtually any hand size can be accommodated with spacers available for cold-water glove use.
All Nauticam housings are machined from a solid block of seawater resistant aluminum alloy and then hard anodized making them impervious to corrosion. Hardware is marine grade stainless steel. Clear acrylic windows are protected with a scratch resistant coating.
A high performance camera like the Nikon D4S demands perfect focus for optimal results. Fortunately, Nauticam has developed the most user-friendly interchangeable precision viewfinders in the world. The standard optical glass viewfinder is very good and travel friendly on large bright viewfinder, but many photographers prefer the ease of a magnified viewfinder with dioptric adjustment. Nauticam produces a “straight” 180° enlarging viewfinder and a 45° angled enlarging viewfinder to enhance the ease of close quarters work often associated with macro shooting. Both viewfinders have high quality optics allow viewing of the entire image. A patented external dioptric adjustment allows personal adjustment to a sharp-as-a-tack standard underwater.
