Nauticam Olympus OM1 Underwater Housing
Nauticam NA-OM1 Underwater Housing for Olympus OM-1
The OM Systems OM-1 is characterized by its combination of extreme customizability and impressive stabilization in a compact hybrid-shooting package. The Nauticam NA-OM1, similar to the OM-1 is a refinement of it's predecessors. Nauticam has produced housings for a wide range of Micro Four Thirds offerings from both Olympus and Panasonic. Throughout the evolution of Micro Four Thirds cameras, Nauticam has adapted our design to help image makers take full advantage of every camera advancement. More than a simple waterproof case, the NA-OM1 integrates with the OM-1 to adapt and improve upon the camera's features for underwater shooting.
Regardless of where a dial or button may be found on the camera body, Nauticam engineers make sure it is located where it is needed most on the housing. This Mission Control philosophy drives the design of every housing and provides for the most intuitive and easy to use housings available. The NA-OM1 features a thumb lever, easily accessed from the ergonomic rubberized right handle that actuates the AF-ON control with a dedicated red record button close by. This back-button autofocus method prevents the camera from refocusing between shots, allowing the user fine control over a shot's focus and is critical whether shooting macro or fast moving wide-angle subjects.
The OM-1 can be used with the optional Olympus FL-LM3 flash inside the NA-OM1 to provide accurate TTL flash triggering through the integrated Sea&Sea style fiber optic bulkheads. For high-speed manual flash triggering, the optional Mini Flash Trigger for Olympus (26306) can be used. The trigger is powered by onboard coin-style lithium batteries, with thousands of flashes available from a set. Electrical triggering of legacy wired strobe systems is possible via an electrical Nikonos style bulkhead (optional).
Premium Professional Optics
A camera system is only as good as the optics placed in front of it. Nauticam's extensive line of dome and flat ports support a wide variety of Micro Four Thirds lenses. For even higher image quality and versatility, the NA-OM1 can be used in conjunction with Nauticam's lineup of Water Contact Optics. For example, with the Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens, the Nauticam WWL-1 provides a full zoom through ultra wide-angle 130º field of view.
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 Olympus electronic viewfinder. The OM-1 features a much improved 5.76M Dot OLED electronic viewfinder. Available in Angled 45º (PN 32205 or 32213) and Straight 180º (PN 32204 or 32211) formats, both viewfinders have external dioptric adjustments for dialing in perfect correction matched to the photographer’s eyesight. When used with the NA-OM1, the Full Frame Angle Viewfinder 32°/ 1:1 (32213) or the Full Frame Straight Viewfinder 32°/ 1:1 (32211) requires the 32215 Viewfinder Collar Adaptor.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-OM1 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional M14 Vacuum Valve II (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.
