The Nauticam Komodo Housing

The Nauticam KOMODO housing is officially RED APPROVED.  The housing is engineered in a similar fashion to previous Epic LT and DSMC2 LT housings, providing the most compact and travel friendly system possible.  Komodo offers seamless integration with DSLR lenses and the same N120 port system used in Nauticam DSLR and Cinema systems.  Enjoy unmatched user friendly setup and intuitive operation including tool-less setup and tear down in minutes.  Batteries can be swapped without ever removing the camera from the housing, and lens changes can be accomplished in seconds.  

The Nauticam KOMODO housing uses the N120 Cinema port system, shared with Nauticam's other N120 platform cameras which allows for easy transition to the Nauticam Komodo from other N120 Nauticam systems. The N120 system also provides access to Nauticam's line of professional premium optics such as the WACP-1/2 and SMC-1/2.

The housing also features adjustable handles with easy access to the cinema style zoom and focus knobs.  On top of the housing is a 1/4"-20 cheese plate which allows for a wide variety of accessory mounting points.

The Nauticam KOMODO is also backed by Nauticam's 2 year warranty.

Lens Support

The RED KOMODO features a Canon RF lens mount, but currently RED is only offering support of Canon EF lenses.  The Nauticam KOMODO housing offers full support of the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor along with the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor with Variable ND Filter.  The left side of the housing features an easily accessible command wheel for smooth ND changes.  Once RED releases RF lens support, the Nauticam KOMODO housing will be ready and fully compatible.

Regardless of EF or RF lens selection, changing lenses is quick, easy and doesn't require any tools.  Note that when changing between RF and EF lenses, the camera must be removed from the housing to remove or install the RF to EF adapter.  Nauticam is constantly testing new lenses to provide optimized port and extension combinations. Large cinema-styled control wheels on the housing, located within easy reach of the handles, provide precise manual focus and zoom control with supported lenses when used with the corresponding lens gear set.  

Not being limited to using DSLR lenses is crucial for cinema systems and the Nauticam KOMODO housing, when used with the 16410 N120 to N200 Port Adapter can support the use of Cinema Lenses and the associated N200 Port System.  Installation is quick, easy and requires no tools allowing seamless lens switching in the field - even when changing between DSLR and Cinema lenses.

Internal Monitor Support

The Komodo has a built-in monitor on top of the camera.  The Nauticam Komodo does feature a large window for using the KOMODO's built in monitor to be used for an extremely streamlined solution.  If an additional monitoring option is required, the Atomos Shinobi SDI monitor is an ideal lightweight monitoring solution for the RED Komodo.  The Shinobi Monitor Back option Komodo Housing supports the use of the Atomos Shinobi SDI monitor inside rear of the housing allowing the monitor to be viewed by the camera operator from a natural filming position.  The monitor back features control buttons for the on-screen buttons of the Shinobi.

External Monitor Support

The Atomos Shinobi SDI monitor can also be mounted in the external Nauticam NA-Shinobi-S housing and connected via SDI bulkheads and cables allowing greater flexibility when positioning the monitor on the Nauticam Komodo housing. 

SDI Output

Required accessories for SDI Cable System

Recommended monitor housing

  • 17921 NA-502B-S Housing for SmallHD 502 Bright Monitor
  • 17924 NA-Shinobi-S Housing for Atomos Shinobi 5.2" 4K HDMI Monitor with SDI input

Battery Compatibility

The system supports Canon BP- batteries and the housing will fit up to two Canon BP-975 batteries with the standard housing back.  When using the Shinobi Monitor Back, only dual BP-955 can be used. Swapping batteries in as simple as opening the housing as the camera does not need to be removed to access the batteries.

    Ethernet Remote Control

    While the Nauticam KOMODO housing is engineered to allow for full control by the operator, it also supports an ethernet surface feed in 5m (pole cam) and 45m (studio) lengths. Within the housing, there is space to install a small ethernet router which would allow for full control of the camera at the surface through the RedControl App.  

    Recommended Ethernet Cables

    • 16261 Ethernet Surface Cable Set in 45m length (Incl. housing lemo bulkhead with integrated internal cable and external Duracell cables)
    • 16262 Replacement of Housing Lemo Bulkhead with Integrated Ethernet Cable
    • 16263 Ethernet Surface Cable Set in 5 meter length (Incl. housing lemo bulkhead with integrated internal cable and external Duracell cables)

    Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System

    The Nauticam KOMODO housing features Nauticam's field-tested Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System that provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. By drawing a slight vacuum inside the housing using a reliable and compact manual hand-pump, the system is able to insure water-tightness before entering the water as well as throughout the dive. A simple color-coded LED lighting system, easily visible at the rear of the housing 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.  


    Patented Port Locking Lever

    The Komodo housing features Nauticam's signature port locking system.  Ports can be easily installed and securely locked in place.  The housing will support both RF and EF mount lenses through the N120 Port System.

    Zoom and Focus Control Knobs

    The Nauticam Komodo housing features oversized mechanical zoom and focus knobs with erasable surfaces for focus/zoom position marks.  The internal gearing is moved away quickly via a small external lever to allow removal of the camera or lens without disruption of focus/zoom gear alignment.

    Tripod and Skid Mounting Points

    Quickly switch between optional tripod legs or skids with four integrated attachment points for either 1" ball mounts for tripod legs or skids.  1" ball mounts can also be attached to the skids for ultimate flexibility.

    Cinema Accessories

    The trim weights (sold separately) can be moved independently along the length of the skids and additional mounting points are featured on the housing itself to trim the housing to the shooter's exact needs.

    Easy Battery Changes

    The Komodo housing supports dual Canon BP style batteries and the camera does not need to be removed for access when changing batteries.

    Monitor Back Option

    The Komodo housing is also available in a Monitor Back configuration that supports the mounting of an Atomos Shinobi SDI Monitor in the rear of the housing without reducing the streamlined profile of the system.

    Update 18/12/2020: There are some production delays at present that may increase wait times on items like housings. We apologise for the inconvenience. If there are any delays with your order, we will communicate this immediately.

    Update October 2020: Delays with local couriers are common. For the latest updates on shipping, check out NZPOST's website here.

    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 we have it in stock, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment, or you can pick it up. 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?

    When you buy something from us, the price is literally exactly what it says on the tin.

    If you buy something from an overseas supplier, that is most definitely not the case. While the product might seem like a great deal on screen, it's important to understand customs and import costs.

    In addition to the ticket price on an overseas purchase, whatever the exchange rate is on the day (this can fluctuate wildly - trust us, we know), there are also tariffs, GST and border processing fees. This can easily add upwards of 25% to the ticket price. Items costing over NZ$1000 also incur import entry transaction fees.

    In addition to these extra costs, Customs clearance can also cause delays. Sea Tech has been importing for years - we've got this down to a fine art, and we've built relationships with customs that help our items clear quickly.

    By buying from Sea Tech, you avoid all the headaches, delays and extra costs. We handle all this stuff for you, so you don't even have to think about it.

    Want to know more?

    These Nauticam housings are non-returnable, non-refundable, non-cancellable, and may be subject to extended lead times as they are manufactured on demand. We always do our best to meet trip deadlines so please advise us if you have a trip coming up!
