The Canon G7X Mark II Camera
Canon's G7X Mark II is the latest large sensor “Powershot” compact camera using the popular 1″ sensor size. This 20 megapixel Back Side Illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor is paired with a best in class, fast 24-100mm zoom lens. This lens is extremely fast for a compact camera, with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 at 24mm and f/2.8 at 100mm. A new processor offers performance improvements across the entire range, most notably in continuous RAW shooting speed (massive increase from 1 fps to a 8). Numerous tweaks to the control layout, body form factor, and control interface have taken an already very good compact to the next level.

The Nauticam NA-G7XMKII Housing
NA-G7XMKII is the latest iteration in a lineup of advanced housings for very capable compact cameras supported by Nauticam. Many features found on professional DSLR systems have been integrated into this system, and the result is an underwater housing that allows the user to harness the full potential of this advanced compact camera in water.
The basic functions and ergonomic enhancements that Nauticam users have grown to know and love are incorporated in NA-G7XMKII. The housing is machined from a solid block of aluminum, then hard anodized to seal out corrosive salt water. It is closed via a simple, yet secure locking rotary latch. The right side of the housing is sculpted to fit the palm of the user’s hand, and Nauticam’s two-stage shutter release lever provides clear differentiation between the half press and full press shutter release positions. All functions are clearly labeled.
The Nauticam leak alarm and vacuum monitoring system is installed as standard equipment. This system provides an audible and visual alert to any water entry in the housing, and when combined with an accessory M14 Vacuum Valve (#25624) the water tight integrity of the system can be tested before ever entering the water and monitored during every dive.
Expert product design, modern manufacturing techniques, top quality materials backed by a two year warranty, and a critical focus on the user experience combine to produce the premier system for Canon Powershot G7X Mark II. The Nauticam NA-G7XMKII.

The N50 Port System
The NA-G7X Mark II ships with the “Standard” Port but other ports are available from the N50 system. Supplied with the housing, this port allows full zoom through and features a 67mm threaded front for attaching accessory macro lenses or a flip-adapter. This port is ideal for mid-range fish portraiture or close-up and macro work with add on wet-lenses.
Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System
The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is shipped with NA-G7XMKII as standard equipment. Combined with an accessory vacuum valve (PN 25624), 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.
