Nauticam NA-5DMIV Housing
While extremely similar to the 5D Mark III and 5DS cameras that came before it, small dimensional changes in the Mark IV body forced a new housing design. The core control layout, proven by generations of existing housings in the field, is retained here. This design consistency results in immediate familiarity with the control layout for people that have used Nauticam housings before, and a thoroughly refined and field tested design for newcomers to the brand. The new Nauticam NA-5DMIV housing incorporates technology from the Nauticam housings that came before it, but features enhanced ergonomics, more and better control access, and reduced size / weight thanks to cutting edge manufacturing processes.
