Canon PowerShot G16 - Nauticam housing NA-G16 - 17313
Nauticam is proud to introduce the NA-G16 aluminium camera housing for the latest version of Canon's iconic G series of compact cameras: The Canon Powershot G16. Once again, Nauticam brings the power of professional quality engineering and cutting edge design to those who enjoy the attributes of compact imaging systems. The NA-G16 should prove to be the ultimate housing for fans of Canon's compact G16 camera. Both camera and housing are loaded with heavyweight features packaged in a lightweight, rugged and easy to operate system.
Nauticam designs and builds aluminium housings for compact cameras with the same uncompromising attention to detail and ergonomics as its acclaimed DSLR housings. That dedication to excellence shows in every aspect of the NA-G16.
All Nauticam products are constantly evolving and improving. Many of the industry leading features found on previous Nauticam housings are clearly evident on the new NA-G16. The comfortable and secure locking rotational latch, rugged machined aluminium case and 100 meter depth rating are now the base line. The rear mounted housing o-ring makes maintenance easy and the progressive shutter release provides the best 'feel' in the business. Like every Nauticam, the NA-G16 has controls ergonomically placed and clearly labeled just the way Canon does. The NA-G16 takes advantage of Canon's excellent control set on the G16 and provides an extremely easy interface - even with gloves on. Programmable front and rear command dials are readily available to forefinger and thumb while never releasing grip. The mode dial is quickly accessed at any moment. Manual aperture and shutter speed adjustment is intuitive and thanks to the G16's unique exposure compensation dial - so is EV control. Video functions are easily engaged with a dedicated record button. Nauticam has provided a flash deployment lever and a window to allow for monitoring Canon's indicator LEDs showing power, ready to shoot, flash activation status and a 'cannot focus' warning.
Nauticam includes a 67mm port thread for mounting optional wet lenses as standard and they precisely engineer the optical glass port specifications for optimal wide angle accessory lens compatibility. The Inon UWL-S100 ZM80 Wide Conversion Lens Is the perfect wide angle companion for the versatile NA-G16 (adapter required) and will provide approximately 100 degree FOV when the camera lens is zoomed to an 80mm focal length. Even more exciting is the option to add the Inon Dome Lens Unit II for UWLS100 ZM80 for a stunning 150 degree FOV. Finally a true fisheye option for Canon G series underwater photographers! Any of several popular close-up lenses can be used, including the ground breaking Nauticam Super Macro Converter (SMC). The Nauticam SMC-1 is the only commercially available macro lens specifically designed and optimised for in water use. SMC-1 is extremely powerful, increasing the maximum magnification of G16 by up to 400% at telephoto focal lengths, reducing the captured FOV to a mere 22mm wide (less than an inch wide), and leaving significant working distance. Macro accessory lenses can be attached via a convenient flip adapter, allowing them to be deployed in seconds when needed.
Only the finest materials and cutting edge manufacturing processes are used to make Nauticam housings. The housing body is machined from solid aircraft grade aluminium, then hard anodised making it impervious to salt water and provides an impressive 100 meter depth rating. The large acrylic LCD window is treated with an anti-reflective, scratch resistant coating.
