Nauticam Underwater Housing Pro Set NA-RX100VII for Sony RX-100VII
The Nauticam NA-RX100 VII Housing Pro Set for the Sony RX-100VII camera is a new standard for compact camera underwater housing design and value. The NA-RX100VII features an interchangeable N50 port system. This port system allows for several different configurations to meet every shooting situation from super wide angle to super macro! The new Nauticam RX100VII Pro Set is a complete package and ready to dive, just add your camera and lighting. It comes assembled and includes the Standard Port (full zoom through), Flexitray system and brackets, ball mounts, external trigger, vacuum valve and even comes in a great carrying case - housing options valued at $500!
The features you'd expect are certainly present, like ergonomic design, clearly labelled controls, sculpted shutter release and more. A fiber optic connection block for strobes is standard, as is the built-in vacuum check and leak detection system. Two accessory bulkhead ports support HDMI cables for an external monitor and the vacuum valve. The NA-RX100 VII is milled from a block of solid aluminum, then hard anodized. The result is a rugged and reliable piece of gear that will stand up to saltwater and the daily rigors of diving. Since the housing accesses all of the camera controls including the front control ring, the user can take advantage of the enhanced programmability in the RX100 VII.
Sony RX-100VI Camera (not included)
The continuation of the longer 24-200mm equivalent zoom lens with the RX100 VII (same as the RX100VI) sets this camera apart from the very popular RX100 V. It hosts a redesigned 20.1MP 1" Exmor RS CMOS sensor, along with an improved BIONZ X image processor, and highly-accurate 357-point hybrid autofocus system. With 5-axis image stabilization and the 20fps blackout free silent shooting (with autofocus), the RX100 VII is going to track your subjects more accurately in photo and video modes.
The RX100 VII captures UHD 4K 30/24fps video that downsamples from the entire sensor width giving extremely sharp details. For slow-motion capture, there is 120fps Full HD, as well as a dedicated HFR mode that allows the camera to record frame rates up to 960fps. Also offering "Steady Shot Active Mode", the RX100VII combines in camera and lens stabilization to give a smooth look to your videos even when making big movements, and with the addition of a microphone jack, video shooters will certainly want to give this camera a second look.
The NA-RX100VII Underwater Housing
Nauticam has supported every version of the Sony RX100 lineup and with the RX100 VII the housing continues with the N50 interchangeable port system. The NA-RX100VII features the same innovative and user-friendly rotary-latch locking system and two-stage trigger from previous versions as well as the clearly-labeled and intuitive buttons and dials.
The NA-RX100VII follows Nauticam's design philosophy of placing the camera controls where they are most needed and easily accessible. The record button is colored red and within easy reach of the right side of the housing, even when using an optional tray system. The pop-up flash can be activated or stowed with the camera inside the housing, eliminating the need to preset the flash before inserting the camera and allowing quick changes between artificial and ambient lighting scenarios.
The shutter speed and aperture controls feature easy-to-use control wheels, with the front dial sporting large grooves to facilitate fingertip control without having to reach forward.
Interchangeable N50 Port
To maximize the added flexibility of the longer zoom lens on the RX100 VII, the NA-RX100VII features an interchangeable N50 port. The Standard Port that is included with the housing allows for the use of the full zoom range and is compatible with the 25107 M67 Flip Diopter Holder. At 90mm equivalent and above, the RX100VII can be used with the SMC-1 wet-optic to achieve true super-macro capability.
Premium Profesional Optics
For super wide-angle, the standard port can be changed for 38702 N50 Short Port with Bayonet Mount. This port is ready to support the WWL-1 Wet-Wide Lens with the intuitive and convenient bayonet-mounting system. Zoom range is still accessible but is limited to 65mm equivalent. The WWL-1 can be changed underwater with the CMC-1 or CMC-2 to give macro capabilities on the same dive.
Pro Package Configuration
The NA-RX100VII Pro Package configuration comes with the Flexitray II, Right Handle, two ball-mounts and M14 vacuum valve pre-installed.
The RX100VII has HDMI output for video, allowing for the use of external monitors which make judging exposure, focus and composition easier than using the built-in LCD of the camera. By adding the optional 25028 Socket Extension and 25032 Custom HDMI bulkhead, the NA-RX100VII is compatible with external monitor housings such as the NA-502B-H or NA-Ninja V (HDMI 1.4 connection only).
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-RX100VII as standard equipment. Combined with an accessory 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 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.
