Nauticam NA-EM1III Underwater Housing

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 is characterized by its combination of extreme customizability and impressive stabilization in a compact hybrid-shooting package. The Nauticam NA-EM1III, similar to the E-M1 Mark III is a refinement of it's predecessors. Nauticam has produced housings for wide range of Olympus cameras from the compact Tough TG series to the PEN and OM-D lines. Throughout the evolution of Olympus' cameras, Nauticam has adapted our design to help image makers get take full advantage of every camera advancement. More than a simple waterproof case, the NA-EM1III integrates with the EM-1 Mark III to adapt and improve upon the camera's features for underwater shooting.

Mission Control

Regardless of where a dial or button may be found on the camera body, Nauticam engineers make sure it is located where it is needed most on the housing. This Mission Control philosophy drives the design of every housing and provides for the most intuitive and easy to use housings available. The NA-EM1III features a thumb lever, easily accessed from the ergonomic rubberized right handle that actuates the customizable AEL/AFL control. Typically, for underwater use, this control is assigned to trigger momentary autofocus. This back-button autofocus method prevents the camera from refocusing between shots, allowing the user fine control over a shot's focus and is critical whether shooting macro or fast moving wide-angle subjects.

Flash Triggering

The OM-D EM-1 Mark III can be used with the optional Olympus FL-LM3 flash inside the NA-EM1III to provide accurate TTL flash triggering through the integrated Sea&Sea style fiber optic bulkheads. For high-speed manual flash triggering, the optional Mini Flash Trigger for Olympus (26306) can be used. The trigger is powered by onboard coin style lithium batteries, with thousands of flashes available from a set. Electrical triggering of legacy wired strobe systems is possible via an electrical Nikonos style bulkhead (optional).

Premium Professional Optics

A camera system is only as good as the optics placed in front of it. Nauticam's extensive line of dome and flat ports support a wide variety of Micro Four Thirds lenses. For even higher image quality and versatility, the NA-EM1III can be used in conjunction with Nauticam's lineup of Water Contact Optics. For example, with the Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens or ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ*, the Nauticam WWL-1 provides a full zoom through ultra wide-angle 130º field of view.

Magnifying Viewfinders

A clear view for fine focus and composition is critical for successful underwater photography, and nothing beats a magnifying viewfinder. These viewfinders use distance, not closeup vision, and provide a large, clear view of the high resolution Olympus electronic viewfinder. Available in Angled 45º (PN 32205) and Straight 180º (PN 32204) formats, both viewfinders have external dioptric adjustments for dialing in perfect correction matched to the photographer’s eyesight.

INTEGRATED VACUUM CHECK AND LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM

The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-EM1III as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple 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.

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.

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.

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.
