Nauticam Nikon Z7V Underwater Housing with M24 Bulkhead
For Nikon Z7/Z6 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera (To Use with Ninja V Monitor)
Innovation, ergonomics, and reliability are the hallmarks of the Nauticam brand and are brought to new heights with the Nauticam underwater housing for the Nikon Z7/Z6 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. The NA-Z7V supports both the Z6 and Z7 models and features the larger-bore M24 bulkhead that supports HDMI 2.0 connections needed for the Atomos Ninja V Recorder/Monitor.
The Z7 and Z6, Nikon's first full-frame mirrorless cameras offer underwater shooters the same legendary Nikon sensors with the versatility of an electronic viewfinder and the more compact form factor of a mirrorless system. The NA-Z7V supports both the Z6 and Z7 models.
Regardless of where the control is located on the camera, the Nauticam NA-Z7V housing puts them where you need them to be underwater. For those switching between photo and video modes, an easily reachable switch is located on the right rear of the housing. The right side double thumb lever, easily reached from the right handle features access to the AF-on and Record buttons respectively. Between the double thumb lever and the multi-stage shutter release is an ISO lever allowing quick changes to sensitivity.
The left double thumb lever accesses the DISP and Playback controls. The Zoom In and Zoom Out controls, located on the right rear of the camera body is relocated to the left side of the housing to a location more familiar to Nauticam housing users.
The switch that allows for switching between the LCD display and the EVF, a crucial and much used control with mirrorless systems is located close to the left handle within easy reach.
F and Z Mount Support
The Nauticam NA-Z7V housing allows not only the use of the new Z mount Nikon glass but also the F mount lenses with the Nikon FTZ Adapter. This is critical as the new Z mount lenses are being phased in over the next few years. The Nauticam NA-Z7V housing features two lens release buttons that correspond to either F or Z mount lenses. When switching between F and Z mount lenses, the camera must be removed from the housing to remove the adapter. When working within either the F or Z mount system use the appropriate lens release button to switch lenses without having to remove the camera from the housing. A vacuum system reset switch is located below the tray as well so there is no need to open the rear of the housing during lens or port changes.
The NA-Z7V is part of the N120 port system which allows for full support of Nikon F mount lenses with the same ports needed for their application on Nikon SLR housings. As Z mount lenses become available Nauticam will add supported configurations.
External Flash Triggering
The NA-Z7V 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 2638 TTL Converter for Nikon).
HDMI Video Output
The Z7 camera supports 10 bit HDMI video output at UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) at up to 30p. An external monitor or recorder can be used with the optional standard M16 HDMI bulkhead (PN 25033), HDMI (D-C) cable in 190mm length (PN 25036) which come standard in any Nauticam monitor housing package. The NA-Z7V also features an M24 bulkhead which supports HDMI 2.0 output. Atomos and Nikon have announced that video output over HDMI 2.0 from the Nikon Z6 and Z7 will be able to be recorded in the Apple ProRes RAW format on the Ninja V Monitor/Recorder. Currently, when used with the Ninja V, the footage can be captured in high-quality ProRes 4:2:2 10-bit 30p UHD 4K using the Nauticam NA-Ninja V housing with HDMI 2.0 cable PN 25085.
Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The NA-Z7V features Nauticam's vacuum check and leak detection system electronics preinstalled. When paired with the M16 Vacuum Valve II, which is pre-installed (25625). the system gives a visual indicator of watertightness with the integrated multicolor LED.
