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 NZ orders?

Port charts

Nauticam Lens Port Charts

Most Nauticam housings offer interchangeable ports that allow for the use of a variety of lenses, however different lenses may require different ports and extensions rings to maintain or correct for underwater optics. Some lenses allow for access to zoom and manual focus functions when inside the housing via a gear set that works in conjunction with a supported housing or extension ring. Consult the appropriate chart for your housing system. If a lens is not listed, it does not necessarily mean it will not work, it means that Nauticam have not tested it. For questions regarding lens compatibility please contact us.

Nauticam Macro to Wide Angle Lens 1 (MWL-1)

150 deg. FOV with Full Frame 60mm Macro Lens

The Nauticam MWL-1 is a revolutionary concept! It is a wet-mounted ultra wide lens (meaning it can be attached and removed underwater) designed to be used with a 60mm full frame equivalent macro lens that results in an ultra-wide 150º field of view. The MWL-1 can focus from the lens' front element to infinity. Ultra wide angle and macro perspectives are now available on the same dive - even with full frame DSLR systems.


Weight (Air/Water) 1.20kg / 0.58kg
Dimensions 108mm diameter x 120mm length
Depth Rating 100m
Mount Nauticam Bayonet or M67

Introducing Macro to Wide Angle Lens 1 (MWL-1)

Macro to Wide Angle Lens 1 (MWL-1)

The MWL-1, similar to other Nauticam underwater optics is made from precision ground optical glass with advanced anti-reflective coatings to eliminate glare and internal reflection.

Macro and Wide with one camera lens!

For many photographers, especially those moving up to an SLR or mirrorless system, there is trepidation at being locked in to either macro or wide angle on a dive. With compact systems that featured wide zoom range lenses that, when paired with corrective optics, could allow for wide angle or macro on the same dive. When moving to an interchangeable lens and port system you would previously have been committed to either wide angle or macro for a given dive.

Close Focus Wide Angle Impact

With the introduction of the MWL-1, not only can you switch between wide angle and macro on the same dive you can also capture unique close focus wide angle images of macro subjects. This technique works best when a macro subject can be placed very close to the lens where exaggerated perspective makes it pop out from an ordinary background.

The MWL-1 excels at smaller apertures and full-frame shooters will get optimal results at F16 or higher.

Multiple Mounting Options

With two mounting options, Nauticam's bayonet system or one of two available flip mounts, the MWL-1 can be quickly engaged or disengaged or even swapped for an CMC-1, going from wide angle to super macro in seconds.

Travel Friendly

The compact size, ease of use, focus range and incredible field of view make the MWL-1 the perfect travel friendly wide-angle option. When heading to a primarily macro destination, bringing the MWL-1 along ensures you'll never miss that spontaneous wide angle shot and presents even greater creative options for close focus wide angle images of macro subjects.

the MWL-1 is perfectly sized for travel
