IKELITE Underwater Housing for Canon PowerShot G7 X
constructionThere's no greater assurance than being able to see the o-ring seal. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal.
Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.ergonomicsThis housing is just-right-sized to hold comfortably in your hand. Controls are provided for all important camera functions including the rear dial. The camera's versatile front control ring is gear driven to place the control within easy reach. A sensitive shutter lever makes it easy to half-depress the trigger for focusing and metering. All rear controls are clearly marked with engraved indicia which will never fade or fall off.flashAn included flash diffuser improves lighting quality when the camera's built-in flash is used. A built-in flash is effective between 1-3 feet (0.3-0.9m) from the subject in clear conditions. For best results a color correcting filter or external lighting is recommended. External lighting is more powerful and can be placed in a position to virtually eliminate the backscatter – or "snow" – from your underwater images.
The optional AF35 strobe triggers and provides automatic TTL exposure by watching the camera's built-in flash, without the need of fiber optic cords or sensors. Alternatively, two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords.wide angle, macro + filtersThe housing port is designed to accept 3.0-inch diameter color filters, and wide angle or macro options with 67mm threads. Light is absorbed very quickly as it passes through water. A subject will look darker, less colorful and somewhat grainy when viewed through even a few feet of water. The addition of a compatible wide angle accessory expands the camera's field of view underwater, providing the opportunity to get as close as possible to the subject and reduce the amount of water light passes through. The results speak for themselves – photos with the best color, exposure and clarity possible.

Nauticam is pleased to announce the NA-XT1 housing for the Fujifilm X-T1 Mirrorless camera. Nauticam’s experience in the world of underwater housings and accessories for mirrorless cameras is unrivaled, and the company is pleased to add the flagship mirrorless camera from Fuji to its lineup.
The NA-XT1 is the latest in Nauticam’s extensive lineup of underwater camera housings. This housing inherits the best of previous housings for high-end mirrorless cameras, while tackling the manual aperture control needed for this particular camera. Everything about the housing indicates it is a true Nauticam: from the ergonomic and well thought out access to all key controls to little things like the comfortable rubberized handles.
Like the Nauticam housings for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Panasonic GH4, the NA-XT1 does not require a separate tray – it includes built in tray/handles, and features a design meant to be shot with hands firmly on the handles. The shutter release is placed for ease of access and minimum housing movement when shooting. The record button is accessible with the right thumb – no long reach to induce unwanted camera shake that can ruin a video shot.
The housing gains a new-style port locking mechanism, which will be familiar to people who have seen Nauticam SLR housings. This locking lever made it’s mirrorless debut with the Nauticam NA-EM1 housing, and is an iconic symbol of Nauticam innovation. The new locking lever makes port changes effortless, quick, and just as secure.
Tripod users will find 3 1/4-20 tripod holes, with extra space allotted for the width of standard tripod plates, meaning the housing can easily be opened with tripod plate attached.
The NA-XT1 comes standard with the Nauticam vacuum system electronics built in. By default, this serves as a audible and visual leak detector, but add a Nauticam M16 Vacuum Valve, (p/n# 25612) and it becomes a vacuum check system – confirming watertight integrity before, during and after the dive – which means peace of mind.
Milled from solid aluminum, the housing is rated to 100m/330ft depth, and is rugged and ready for use!
The NA-XT1 supports both the Fujinon XF10-24mm F4 R OIS wide angle zoom lens, and the Zeiss Touit 2.8/50M macro lens. A zoom gear for the 10-24mm is now available (#36441).
With Fuji’s high end lenses (called the “XF” line) and the Zeiss 50mm macro, aperture is controlled on via a lens ring rather than electronically through the camera. This old school approach will resonate with anyone who, for example, shot older Nikon SLR’s before the days of electronic aperture. Nauticam is today announcing aperture rings for both the 10-24mm (#36421), and the Zeiss 50mm macro (#36422).
Magnifying Optical Viewfinders
Nauticam produces a “straight” 180º magnifying viewfinder (#32201) and a 45º angled viewfinder (#32203) that provide a bright, corner to corner view of the X-T1’s excellent EVF. A patented external dioptric adjustment allows personal adjustment to a sharp-as-a-tack standard underwater and viewfinder changes can be executed in less than 30 seconds without using tools. Exceptional composition and focus accuracy have never been more accessible. An optional LCD window (p/n #17171), containing the viewfinder mounting ring, is required to attach these finders.
Lighting and Mounting Options
Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with the NA-XT1 and a variety of optically fired flashes.
The Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, Sea & Sea YS-01 and YS-D1 strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s onboard flash at a proportionally greater intensity.
This system yields accurate automatic TTL flash performance – even in manual mode – with no electrical sync cables to flood! The NA-XT1 comes fiber optic ready and accepts standard Sea & Sea style bushing connections. Nauticam Fiber Optic cables, available for both Inon and Sea&Sea strobes, provide the best light transmission and therefore more accurate TTL of any fiber optic cable on the market.
The NA-XT1 is compatible with the same flash trigger used on the NA-GH4, the Flash Trigger for Panasonic (p/n #26305). The Flash Trigger allows for rapid fire manual flash firing via fiber optic, with no camera battery drain.
Video lights or strobes can easily be attached to the 1” ball mounts that come standard with the housing. Additional mount points include an M10 mount point on the housing (use #25221 M10 Strobe Mounting Ball for Housing), 2 M5 mount points (use #25228 M5 strobe mounting ball), and a cold shoe mount.
In addition, Nauticam utility clamps can turn a single ball mount into 2, easily extending the mounting point choices.
Nauticam Build Quality
Only the finest materials and cutting edge manufacturing processes are used to make Nauticam housings. The housing body is machined from solid aircraft grade aluminum, then hard anodized making it impervious to saltwater and provides an impressive 100 meter depth rating. The large acrylic LCD window is treated with an anti-reflective, scratch resistant coating.
Announcing the Housing for Olympus Tough TG-3 Innovation Gets Small, and Tough Nauticam is pleased to announce the release of it’s housing for the Tough TG-3, the pocketable “ultra-rugged” little camera from Olympus. The camera is rated to be waterproof down to 15m/50ft without a housing, but with the Nauticam housing, this diminutive camera will allow you to take super macro shots down at a whopping 100m or 330 feet. The combination of the rugged camera and rugged milled aluminum housing is ideal for a rental fleet or similar situations where gear gets used and abused.
The Olympus TG-3 Small and rugged, the TG-3 is an adventure camera, ready for the owner to freeze it, drop it from 6 feet and then stand on it. The camera is an automatic, point and shoot type of rig, though it does offer an aperture priority mode – very useful for underwater.
In keeping with the “all automatic” nature of the camera, there is no RAW mode, but that is ideal for the person who’d rather be out shooting than laboring behind Lightroom. The JPG’s it creates from the 16 megapixel sensor are polished, and given the manual white balance options in camera, the color can be accurately dialed in underwater. The camera also has a very unique set of macro modes (called “microscope” modes) that let the camera get ridiculously close to the subject.
More features include 1080/30p video, a electronic compass, and 380 shot battery life. This camera is geared towards sharing, and the WiFi and social network integration make that easy.
Nauticam NA-TG3 The NA-TG3 is a milled aluminum underwater camera housing that borrows from it’s innovative big brothers to bring legendary Nauticam durability and ergonomics to the Olympus TG-3. From the comfortable hand placement to the integrated thumb grip, the Nauticam housing makes shooting this camera underwater very easy. All of the camera controls are clearly labeled, and the sculpted shutter button has an intuitive feeling not found in lesser housings. The video record button is easily identified by shape and color, and the proven rotary locking latch makes closing the housing simple and secure.
Other housing features include 2 fiber optic ports, easy access zoom lever, a 52mm threaded mount for auxiliary lenses, scratch resistant rear window, optional handstrap (p/n# 36316), mounts for the optional LCD Magnifier (p/n# 25106 and rails p/n # 25123), and a cold shoe mount.
