Introducing NA-Z9

The Nikon Z9 Mirrorless Full Frame Camera

Nikon's Z9 takes a divergent step from similar top-level mirrorless full frame systems from Sony and Canon by removing the mechanical shutter altogether. This departure, along with the powerful processor allow for the true no-blackout or 'Real-Live" electronic viewfinder (EVF). With a maximum 3,000nit brightness, the EVF promises an even more natural viewing experience similar to an optical viewfinder. The 'F3' button comes pre-set to remove all overlay data from the EVF for an unobstructed composition-focused workspace.  The Z9 is built around a 45.7MP stacked CMOS sensor with exceptional low light performance and 14-bit raw image capture.  The ISO range of the Z9 is 64 to 25,600 with expansion possible to 32-102,400.  The EXPEED 7 processor features advanced noise reduction to maximize image quality at even higher ISO values.

Autofocus

Nikon's autofocus has seen dramatic improvement with the Z series and Z9 continues that evolution with AF that works all the way down to -8.5EV (with supported lenses) and features advanced 3D subject tracking. Furthermore, the subject detection system can be set to auto-select the subject type such as animals or people. With over 400 points into auto-detect area, this is sure to deliver exceptional tracking across the frame.

8K Video

The EXPEED 7 processor also allows for 8K UHD 30p internal recording with advanced heat dissipation to prevent overheating with an 8K/60P Raw recording firmware update coming in 2022. 10-bit 4K UHD can also be recorded with full pixel readout or with a 2.3x crop factor, exceptional for getting even more macro magnification. The future firmware update will add 12-bit 8K/60p in either Nikon's RAW format or ProRes RAW HQ.  Internal recording is available in either H.265 (8-bit), H.265 (8,10-bit) or ProRes HQ 422 (10-bit) formats to support different workflows.  The Z9 is equipped with dual CFexpress Type-B card slots that also accommodate XQD media.

The Nauticam NA-Z9 Underwater Housing

The Nauticam NA-Z9 brings embodies the experience gained by producing professional housings for Nikon's flagship DSLR and mirrorless cameras, blending them to create the most intuitive underwater imaging platform available.

F and Z Mount Compatible

The NA-Z9 uses the N120 Port System for Z-Mount full-frame lenses. When using F-mount lenses, the FTZ adapter is inside the housing which allows for the same port configuration as is found on an F-mount DSLR system such as the NA-D6 or NA-D850. Convenient lens release buttons on the housing for both F and Z mount makes lens changes a snap regardless of platform without having to remove the camera from the housing; only when installing or removing the FTZ adapter.

Mission Control

Essential control are placed within easy reach of the ergonomic handles and easy setup means more time in the water and less time working on your rig. Within easy reach of the ergonomic left handle are finger-actuated levers for the customizable 'Fn1' and 'Fn2' buttons as well as the AF-Mode button. A double thumb lever triggers the PLAYBACK and DISP buttons. On the right side is a double thumb lever for the AF-ON and REC control as well as recessed lever for ISO and a forward placed lever for the 'Fn1' button.

HDMI Output

As a true hybrid shooting platform the NA-Z9 is just as comfortable being outfitted to capture video as stills. External monitors and recorders can easily be connected via the large M24 bulkhead which supports both HDMI 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 connections.

Premium Professional Optics

The NA-Z9 is built around the extensive N120 Port System that supports a wide range of F-Mount and Z-Mount lenses with a variety of acrylic and optical-glass port options. In addition to standard ports, Nauticam's premium professional water-contact optics deliver the highest possible underwater image quality. The WACP-2, when used with the Nikon Z 14-24mm lenses provides a stunning rectilinear 140º field-of-view and full zoom-through capability with an incredibly natural looking image when compared to a standard rectilinear lens and dome port combination.

April/May 2022 Delays:

Due to further Omicron outbreaks in China, some products may be delayed. Not all brands or products will be affected by this. As some products are kept in stock as a matter of course, these should not be affected.

If you need things urgently please contact us and check ETA on the items you require.

International Shipping

At the moment, our website is only set up to ship within New Zealand. If you live outside New Zealand, please contact us and tell us your full shipping address and what you want to purchase. Please note that our free shipping offer applies to NZ shipping only. Our preferred method of shipping internationally is DHL.

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?

We use New Zealand Post and CourierPost to ship orders. Our default is courier, though you may organise an alternative with us by contacting us directly. CourierPost aims for next day delivery nationwide between major towns and cities in the North Island. South Island delivery can take two days. If you require next-day delivery in South Island, choose the express shipping option for the South Island. If you spend over $250 get your shipping for free!

We wish to assure you we are following the government health guidelines surrounding safe operating procedures. Hygiene basics such as hand washing, coughing/sneezing protocols as well as the wearing of appropriate protective equipment such as face masks.

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.
