NAUTICAM NA-GH5 UNDERWATER HOUSING FOR PANASONIC LUMIX GH5
An exceptional hybrid housing to complement an exceptional hybrid camera, NA-GH5 is designed from the ground up with both videos and still photo shooters in mind. Incredible engineering, enabling fingertip control access, has made Nauticam famous.
The housing is small, but not at the expense of functionality or ergonomics. Integrated handles provide a sturdy and comfortable base to operate the system. An ergonomic shutter release lever, thumb lever for AE-L / AF-L, and well-placed control dials provide the same operational feel as any Nauticam DSLR housing.
Control buttons are placed within easy reach of the handles, with sufficient spacing to allow easy operation, even by feel. One example of this is a combo lever, accessing both White Balance and ISO, placed directly under the right grip. The ergonomic experience of this system is clearly influenced by Nauticam DSLR systems, with class-leading control access and feel.
More than just good-looking, this is rugged housing, ready to tackle thousands of hours of underwater abuse. Crafted from solid aircraft aluminum, the housing can reach depths of 100m with ease. Camera access and lens changes couldn't be easier, and secure locking latches inspire confidence.
The NA-GH5 is a professional-grade underwater housing, built with cutting-edge manufacturing technology, supporting the pro-level GH5 camera body to its full potential.
Ready for video rigging! A top-mounted 1" Ball (either bolt-on or cold shoe mounting style) provides a convenient monitor attachment point. Mounting balls on the handles are perfect light mounts, and a new Mounting Ball Set for Tripod Legs (25217) is a steady base for building a rock-solid tripod.
MAGNIFYING OPTICAL VIEWFINDERS
The GH5 has a fantastic electronic viewfinder, and the renowned Nauticam 180º Enhanced Viewfinder or the excellent 45º Enhanced Viewfinder is available to enlarge this optic even further. The EVF is a great workaround for the excellent closeup vision normally required to monitor a live view screen.
No tools are required to install or switch between finders in the field!
RAPID FIRE MANUAL AND TTL FLASH TRIGGERING VIA FIBER OPTIC CABLES
Add the optional Panasonic DMW-FL70 Flash inside the housing for reliable, accurate triggering of optical TTL compatible strobes. Rapid-fire manual triggering is also available with the Nauticam Mini Flash Trigger (26309).
INTEGRATED VACUUM CHECK AND LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-GH5 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve (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.
FULL-SIZE HDMI OUT
The GH5 camera features a full-size “Type A” HDMI Connector on the camera body, providing a reliable user-friendly connection for external monitors. A new Nauticam Internal HDMI Cable (25075) supports this format!
