Nauticam Nikon NA-Z9 Underwater Housing
The Nauticam NA-Z9 Underwater Housing
The Nauticam NA-Z9 brings embodies the experience gained by producing professional housings for Nikon's flagship DSLR and mirrorless cameras, blending them to create the most intuitive underwater imaging platform available.
F and Z Mount Compatible
The NA-Z9 uses the N120 Port System for Z-Mount full-frame lenses. When using F-mount lenses, the FTZ adapter is inside the housing which allows for the same port configuration as is found on an F-mount DSLR system such as the NA-D6 or NA-D850. Convenient lens release buttons on the housing for both F and Z mount makes lens changes a snap regardless of platform without having to remove the camera from the housing; only when installing or removing the FTZ adapter.
Essential control are placed within easy reach of the ergonomic handles and easy setup means more time in the water and less time working on your rig. Within easy reach of the ergonomic left handle are finger-actuated levers for the customizable 'Fn1' and 'Fn2' buttons as well as the AF-Mode button. A double thumb lever triggers the PLAYBACK and DISP buttons. On the right side is a double thumb lever for the AF-ON and REC control as well as recessed lever for ISO and a forward placed lever for the 'Fn1' button.
As a true hybrid shooting platform the NA-Z9 is just as comfortable being outfitted to capture video as stills. External monitors and recorders can easily be connected via the large M24 bulkhead which supports both HDMI 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 connections.
Premium Professional Optics
The NA-Z9 is built around the extensive N120 Port System that supports a wide range of F-Mount and Z-Mount lenses with a variety of acrylic and optical-glass port options. In addition to standard ports, Nauticam's premium professional water-contact optics deliver the highest possible underwater image quality. The WACP-2, when used with the Nikon Z 14-24mm lenses provides a stunning rectilinear 140º field-of-view and full zoom-through capability with an incredibly natural looking image when compared to a standard rectilinear lens and dome port combination.
The NA-Z9 comes with Nauticam's self powered manual flash trigger preinstalled. The flash trigger plugs into the hot-shoe of the camera and uses LED lights recessed into each of the two optical bulkheads to trigger supported underwater flashes when used with the correct fiber optic connection. The flash trigger is powered by coin cell batteries that provide thousands of flashes per battery. The flash trigger can be upgraded to support TTL triggering (PN 26308 TTL Converter for Nikon).
Integrated Vacuum Check And Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-Z9 as standard equipment. Combined with an accessory M16 vacuum valve (PN 25625), 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.
