THE NA-BMPCCII UNDERWATER HOUSING
The NA-BMPCCII is not just an update of the original NA-BMPCC, it is a ground up redesign for the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K designed to take full advantage of the great new features of this cinema camera.
Nauticam's design philosophy is driven by allowing immediate access to all essential controls within easy reach of the handles, allowing the shooter to make adjustments without having to take their eyes off the screen.
Within reach of the right handle are the trigger as well as a control dial for iris, a lever to capture still images as well as a double thumb lever for the white balance and autofocus. A recessed double thumb lever, situated between the trigger and the rear thumb lever accesses the ISO and Shutter Angle (Shutter Speed).
Three assignable buttons are atop the housing near the right handle as well as three buttons on the right rear for HFR, Auto-Iris, Zoom and Menu.
A thumb lever on the left side activates Review.
The NA-BMPCCII features DSLR style ergonomic handles with stainless steel stiffening brackets that are compatible with the optional handle strap (PN 28130).
The rear monitor window is compatible with the Monitor Shade for the NA-502 Housing (PN 17916) which attaches via four screws.
The underside of the housing has mounting points for use with the Tripod Mounting Ball Set (PN 25218) removing the use for a bulky tripod plate.
PREMIUM PROFESSIONAL OPTICS
The NA-BMPCCII is built around the N85 Port System which offers a variety of port configurations for a large selection of lenses.
The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K features a four thirds lens mount making it compatible with the Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R lens that when paired with the WWL-1 provides ultra-sharp full-zoom-through wide-angle performance.
The WWL-1, when used with the bayonet mount system can be exchanged underwater for the optional CMC-1 or CMC-2 to allow for the capturing of up to 130º wide-angle, macro and super-macro all on the same dive.
HDMI 2.0 READY
The housing features several bulkheads including the large-bore M28 which supports the use of an HDMI 2.0 recorder such as the Atomos Ninja V through the Nauticam Atomos Ninja V Housing (PN 17922).
CUSTOM BATTERY PACK AND SSD SUPPORT
To allow for increased run-time, the NA-BMPCCII comes with a custom battery cage that holds 4 x 18650 Lithium Batteries (batteries not included).
This battery cage sits securely beneath the camera inside the housing and connects directly to the camera's power supply input.
With 4x3400 mAh batteries, the run-time of the system can exceed 3 hours.
Atop the camera's position inside the housing is a slot that holds a compact T5 SSD which connects to the camera via USB-C.
- Canon LP-E6 internal battery: 40min
- 4 x 16850 Battery: up to 160min
- Total Run Time: 3hrs 20min
VACUUM CHECK AND LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-BMPCCII as standard equipment.
With the pre-installed vacuum valve, this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing.
A simple color 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.
The Nauticam system is temperature compensated, eliminating false alarms caused by a change in outside temperature, or from a camera heating up on an action packed dive.
