Our Nauticam GX85 Underwater Photo Quality system is a great way to get started with the Panasonic GX85/GX80 underwater.This complete Optical Ocean Sales photo system includes the Nauticam NA-GX85 underwater housing, vacuum valve, FlexiTray and handstrap. Also included is the Nauticam dome port for the Panasonic 8mm FE lens (add a 20mm extension for the Olympus 8mm FE PRO lens). This state-of-the art package also includes the new I-DAS Symbiosis SS-2 strobe/light. It is a combination of a powerful strobe and a 2,000 lumen video light! You can do amazing wide angle and video with this one compact m4/3rds system! This system is also upgradeable and can be customized as you like!
The new housing takes full advantage of the Panasonic's many features and allows easy one-handed operation of key controls like the three command dials and the video record button. The NA-GX85 supports 7 programmable buttons on this camera, easily accessible from the housing. The sculpted shutter release makes "half-press" focus incredibly easy. For fans of “thumb focus” (moving the autofocus from half-press of the shutter to a button operated by the right thumb), this is fully supported with the AF/AEL button.
Attention to detail is everywhere, from the comfortable thumb rest on the right to the large knurled command wheels and zoom/focus knob. Video is easily accessed; the video button is given special treatment, being larger, concave and red in color. For tripod use, the housing features two standard 1/4" 20 tripod holes, or is also tripod ready when using the included Flexitray W camera tray. The included shutter release extension and stainless steel handle bracket provide convenient shutter release access, even while wearing gloves.
The NA-GX85 comes standard with the Nauticam vacuum system electronic built in. Our system includes the optional vacuum valve to become a complete vacuum check system - early warning for problems with watertight integrity - which means peace of mind when shooting underwater.
A wide range of ports is available to house your favorite lenses for macro or other uses.
The SS-2 features an LED screen and a mode and power dial. Intensity of the light or strobe can be individually adjusted. The light automatically turns off and then back on during strobe exposure. Red and white modes are available and adjustable. The LED screen orients itself if the strobe is flipped over, so you can always read it!
The SS-2 features an auto mode that allows it to "learn" exposure with a few test shots. While not TTL, it does allow for faster shooting. As well, manual control is very easy and precisely adjustable.
Symbosis SS-2 is neutral in the water and easy to dive. It can be used as a focus light with auto shutoff while using the strobe for stills. Both YS and ball mounts are provided. The light battery unscrews and can then be taken to the charger - without disassembling the SS-2 from your rig.
Upgrade to the optional 4,000 lumen light head for even more video light performance.
Comfortable grip and adjustable,l this tray is combined iwth an I-DAS arms and clamps and a high quality sync cord for the SS-2. The Flexitray can be expanded to have two handles.
