WHAT CAN BE FOUND IN THE BOX?
17329 - The Nauticam NA-R Housing

90122 - A spare o-ring for the housing with grease and a removal tool
CR2032 - Battery (for Vacuum System)
A padded Travel Case
Allen wrench set that will get you through most of potential problems.
STAINLESS STEEL HANDLE BRACKETS
Stiffening handle brackets are included with the housing. These brackets eliminate any flex or wobble when using big strobes, and provide multiple attachment points for lanyards or other accessories.
Built-in fiber optic bulkheads work in conjunction with one of two optional flash triggers.
The optional TTL flash trigger can be turned on and off from outside the housing allowing easy switching between ambient and artificial lighting for the scene. Flash triggering is achieved via one of two optional Flash Triggers, a manual LED trigger (PN 26301) or a TTL Flash Trigger (PN 26321) that use the built-in fiber optic bulkheads with optional fibre-optic cables to trigger supported strobes.
For controlling strobes that do not support fiber optic flash triggering, a variety of ordinary electronic flash bulkheads are available.
THE DESIGNERS IDEA
Nauticam engineers are obsessed with providing easy access to essential controls. Thumb and sub levers enable the shooter to reach many important functions without having to move your hand from the handle.
The idea is to extend the NA-R where a dual thumb lever and dual sub-lever are placed by the right handle. The upper thumb lever activates the "AF-On" and the lower the "Info" buttons while the sub-lever corresponds to the "M-Fn" and "Record" buttons. Near the left handle is a thumb lever for "Playback" as well as a dedicated switch to change from using LCD to the EVF.
Needless to say that the Nauticam housing has improved the functionality of the EOS-R camera.
THE PROFESSIONAL OPTICS
The NA-EOS-R is designed around the N120 Port System and when used with supported lenses allows for the use of a variety of Nauticam water contact optics such as the WACP, as well as the SMC-1 and SMC-2 super macro converters.
VIDEO VS HDMI
The EOS R is capable of outputting a 10 bit 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) 30p video signal over the HDMI cable.
Did anyone sat broadcast possibilities??
When combined with the optional Standard M16 HDMI Bulkhead (PN 25033) and HDMI (D-C) 190mm cable (PN 25036) - the NA-R can be used in conjunction with an external monitor or recorder - such as the SmallHD 502B or the Ninja Inferno in Nauticam Housings.
VACUUM CHECK AND THE NAUTICAM LEAK SYSTEMS
The NA-R comes with the electronics as well as the M16 Vacuum Valve II for the vacuum check and leak detection system pre-installed.
This simple system allows for checking the housing before and through the dive.
