Nauticam Reveals Housing for Panasonic Lumix S5II and S5IIX
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, March 17, 2023 @ 08:00 AM (EST)

Nauticam has unveiled its forthcoming NA-S5II housing for the new Panasonic Lumix S5II and S5IIX, which were announced just two months ago, in the first week of January. The cameras break new ground for Panasonic, as the new models employ phase detection autofocus, as opposed to the less-reliable contrast-based AF used in the company’s previous Lumix models. The cameras also feature new 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensors and more-powerful image processors—the two models differing mainly in terms of high-end video specs.

Nauticam hasn’t yet provided full details, but the company says the new housing provides “unfettered access” to all camera controls and functions, “enabling users to fully utilize the camera’s capabilities while diving.” According to Nauticam, “durable construction and user-friendly features” are on offer, the housing being “an ideal choice for underwater storytellers seeking a dependable and efficient underwater housing option.”

Shipping from March 24th, the NA-S5II housing will be available for $3,479 from retailers such as Backscatter.
