NA-EM1X for Olympus OM-D E-M1X Camera

The Nauticam NA-EM1X Underwater Housing

The NA-EM1X brings Nauticam's unmatched experience with housing Olympus' mirrorless platform to the next level, allowing the underwater image maker to intuitively harness every aspect of the E-M1X's impressive capabilities and extensive customizability.  Whether shooting fast action, landscapes or 4K video the NA-EM1X is the ultimate underwater platform.

Unparalleled Control

The NA-EM1X follows Nauticam's Mission Control design philosophy that brings access to the most-needed controls exactly where you need them to be, within easy reach of the DSLR-housing styled ergonomic handles.  

Behind the two-stage trigger is an ISO lever as well as a double lever that targets the Fn1 and Fn2 buttons on the front of the camera.  A thumb lever, accessible from the right handle triggers the AE-L/AF-L button commonly used for back-button autofocus.  

A double thumb-lever on the left side accesses the INFO and PLAYBACK buttons.  

Flash Triggering

The NA-EM1X is compatible with Nauticam's Mini Flash Trigger for Olympus which provides rapid-fire flash triggering via fiber-optic cables attached to the integrated Sea&Sea style optical bulkheads.  For TTL, the Olympus FL-LM3 hot-shoe flash can be placed in the housing.  The flash can be easily turned on and off using a dedicated switch on the housing.

Premium Professional Optics

Nauticam has long supported the MFT open-source standard optics across a wide range of cameras and housings.  The NA-EM1X shares the N85 Port System with other MFT systems like the Olympus OM-D E-M1MKII and the Panasonic GH5.  For those moving from another MFT Nauticam housing, this means near-complete cross-support* for lenses and ports with the NA-EM1X. 

HDMI 1.4 and 2.0 Video Output

The Olympus E-M1X produces clean 4:2:2 4K M-Log output over HDMI which can be recorded with an external monitor/recorder such as the Atomos Ninja V.  The NA-EM1X is equipped with both M24 and M16 bulkheads.  The M24 bulkhead supports the HDMI 2.0 connection.  An HDMI 1.4 option is also available via the standard HDMI bulkhead when used with the optional M24 to M16 step-down adapter and appropriate connection.

Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System

The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-EM1X as standard equipment. Combined with an accessory vacuum valve (PN 25624/5), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple color 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.

The Nauticam system is temperature compensated, eliminating false alarms caused by a change in outside temperature, or from a camera heating up on an action packed dive.

Notes:

* some N85 Ports are not supported; 36052 before SN: A297188 is not compatible; 36401 before SN: A393237 is not compatible

Features

Patented port locking system

Unveiled on the very first Nauticam DSLR housing in 2009, this locking lever has become a signature of the Nauticam brand.  No twisting or threading action is required to mount a port, and it locks securely in place with this lever.  Nauticam also offers locking port extensions, meaning a dome will never twist, even when used with a long extension ring. 

Housing locking latches

The industry's easiest to use housing closure system, requiring very little hand strength to operate, secures the housing back in place. The latches are safely locked to prevent accidental opening, but are easy to open when needed for a quick battery or memory card change.

HDMI output

The M24 bulkhead supports both the HDMI 2.0 and 1.4 standards for use with external monitors and recorders to take advantage of the clean HDMI output of the E-M1X.

Vacuum check and leak detection system

The NA-EM1X features Nauticam's vacuum check and leak detection system electronics preinstalled.  When paired with the M16 or M14 Vacuum Valve II, the system gives a visual indicator of watertightness with the integrated multicolor LED.

How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock.

If it is, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

How do you ship my orders?

CourierPost aims for next day delivery nationwide between major towns and cities in the North Island. South Island delivery can take two days.
