The much anticipated Nauticam Housing for the Nikon D7000 is now shipping and available. The Nikon D7000 has been well received by the critics, priced slightly more than the D90 but also out specs the similarly priced, and still on sale, D300s in many details. It has a 16.2 MP CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-6400, a 39 point AF system with 3D tracking and a 2016 pixel metering system. It shoots up to ‘full HD’ video – 1920 x 1080 resolution at 24fps and has a live view/movie switch control. Unlike the D90, the D7000 can also maintain AF during live view and movie shooting, a feature which is sure to be popular with Underwater Photographers/Videographers.
The NA-D7000 housing inherits numerous innovations from earlier Nauticam housings like the piano keys which first appeared on the NA-7D housing, an improved version of the locking latches from the NA-550D housing and the patented Nauticam port locking sys
tem. The NA-D7000 is also packed with new features including new locking latches, a new lens release lever and flash activation button, a new patented two stage shutter release and an improved rear command dial control – all in a smaller package.
With many orders already taken for this new housing, we’re sure this camera and housing combination is going to be extremely popular with many underwater photographers.
