NA-G9 Underwater Housing for the Panasonic LUMIX G9

Nauticam is pleased to unveil the NA-G9, the latest release in the world’s finest line of underwater camera housings. Nauticam is the market leader in ergonomics, build quality, and reliability. Built on a foundation of innovative product design and modern manufacturing technology, NA-G9 is the ultimate accessory for the exciting new Panasonic G9 camera.

Nauticam was the first housing manufacturer to support a Panasonic mirrorless interchangeable lens camera and features current housings for the GX8, GX85, GH4, and GH5 along with a variety of ports for Panasonic lenses. With the Lumix G9 Nauticam is once again at the forefront of innovation and cooperation, getting two prototype housings into the hands of Panasonic pro shooters before the camera release for field testing! Nauticam & Panasonic – perfect partners.

The Panasonic Lumix G9

Following hot on the heels of the ground-breaking GH5, Panasonic’s G9 shares many features with its sibling but is squarely aimed at the still photo shooter. The G9 features a 20.3 MP Live MOS sensor and Panaonic’s Dual I.S. 5-axis 2.0 stabilization that allows for up to 6 stops of stabilization. This is combined with ultra-fast (0.04 sec) lock focus, 12fps continuous shooting with AFS and the mechanical shutter or a blazing 60fps AFS and 20fps AFC high-speed burst shooting with the electronic shutter with no blackout, a game changing feature also recently touted by the Sony A9.

The G9 also features a special 80MP RAW capture mode in which the sensor shifts 8 times to capture a massive 40MP or 80MP image that also includes more tonal data as every point in the image gets covered by a red, green and blue pixel during the sensor shift. While only practical for static subjects and when the camera is mounted on a tripod this could translate into underwater use as the Nauticam NA-G9 housing does feature tripod-mounting attachment points integrated into the base of the housing.

An impressive array of focus, stabilization and shooting speed upgrades make the G9 a Lumix that’s squarely aimed at the still shooter looking for the versatility of the Micro Four Thirds standard with many of the benefits of an DSLR in a more compact package and with the convenience of an electronic viewfinder.

The Nauticam NA-G9 Underwater Housing

Innovation, ergonomics, and reliability are the hallmarks of the Nauticam brand. Every new housing design is carefully crafted based on feedback from Nauticam users around the globe. Feedback gained from the knowledge and experience of Nauticam owners results in every new housing design being better than the last.

Key camera controls are placed within an easy reach from the ergonomic, rubberized handles. An incredible amount of design resources go into crafting this layout, but that effort pays off with unmatched ease of use. Controls on the housing are placed exactly where they should be for easiest access in water, regardless of the camera layout. A large, sculpted shutter release lever is placed at the right hand grip for index finger operation, and features a patented geared mechanism that improves sensitivity for tactile feel of half press and full press. To facilitate back-button autofocus, the AF/AE lock button (which can be reassigned to activate AF) is controlled by a thumb lever near the right handle. No other housing comes close to achieving this kind of ergonomic access to these critical controls.

The housing Locking Latch System has received acclaim worldwide for its ease and functionality. These recessed latches are equipped with safety locks, reduce bulk and require minimal physical effort to engage and release. Port changes have never been simpler than utilizing the Patented Nauticam Locking Port Release Lever. No wrestling, no twisting, no misalignment – just seat and lock. Lens changes are also easily accomplished without removing the camera from the housing using the lens release button logically accessed on the housing front.

Viewfinders

The standard optical glass viewfinder is very good and travel friendly, but many photographers prefer the ease of a magnified viewfinder with adjustable diopter. Nauticam produces a “straight” 180º enlarging viewfinder and a 45º angled enlarging viewfinder to enhance the ease of close quarters work often associated with macro shooting. Both viewfinders have high quality optics, and allow bright viewing of the entire image. A patented external dioptric adjustment allows personal adjustment to a sharp-as-a-tack standard underwater and viewfinder changes can be executed in less than 30 seconds without using tools. Exceptional composition and focus accuracy have never been more accessible.

Premium Professional Optics

Experienced shooters know a camera is only as good as the lens in front of it, and the same is true when choosing optics for an underwater camera system. A variety of wide-angle and flat ports are available in the N85 system to accommodate a large portion of the Micro Four Thirds open-standard lenses. configurations are extensively tested at Nauticam to determine the ideal extension ring length for best performance.

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?

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!

Covid-19

We hope you, your families and friends are safe and healthy during the current Covid-19 situation.

As you may know we are a small team at Sea Tech Ltd. Our team has zero close contact with people outside our bubble.

We wish to assure you, that when we begin fulfilling orders on 28 April, we will be 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.


We are continuing to follow the regular updates to government health guidelines and initiatives regarding Covid-19.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss any aspect of our delivery service via Courier Post New Zealand.

We wish you all the best during these challenging times.

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.
