Nauticam Underwater Housing for the Panasonic GX85 Camera
The Nauticam NA-GX85 housing, is designed specifically for the Panasonic GX85 camera. Nauticam's unparalleled experience with taking mirrorless cameras underwater is evident in this exceptional housing. Rugged aluminum construction depth-rated to 300', means this housing is built to dive and last. Easy to operate controls means you'll never miss a shot. And like all Nauticam housings you can extend your system with many available accessories.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX85
An all-around Micro Four Thirds camera designed for photographers and videographers, the black Lumix DMC-GX85 from Panasonic features a compact build and intuitive layout, along with a feature-set to suit a multimedia lifestyle. Utilizing a 16MP Live MOS sensor, which lacks an optical low-pass filter for increased sharpness, the GX85 is capable of shooting continuously at up to 10 fps with single-shot autofocus, or 6 fps with continuous autofocus, as well as up to 40 fps when using an electronic shutter function. UHD 4K video recording is also supported in 30 and 24 fps frame rates, as well as Full HD 1080p, and the 4K recording abilities also permit shooting 8MP stills at a 30 fps rate. A sensitivity range up to ISO 25600 permits working in difficult and low-light settings while 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization also helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Spanning a broad range of features for both still and moving images, the GX85 is a versatile mirrorless camera further characterized by its sleek form factor and connected functionality.
The pioneering features of the earlier Nauticam housings are apparent with the simple but secure rotating housing latch and superb progressive shutter release providing optimal “feel”. The NA-GX85 also sports some of Nauticam’s classic technology like the port locking latch – making housing port changes easier and foolproof.
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 the 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 Flexitray W camera tray.
The included shutter release extension and stainless steel handle bracket provide convenient shutter release access when used with the Nauticam Tray and Handle Systems.
Nauticam Vacuum Check System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system electronics are included with the NA-GX85 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve, this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe to dive status of the housing.
Strobes can be attached to the housing via optional strobe mounting balls secured to the handles of the Nauticam accessory tray systems or a single strobe mounting ball location on the housing. The housing also features an M10 mounting hole and a cold-shoe mount for a focus light or other accessory mounting options.
