The next evolution of the WWL-1 is coming soon!   As the versatility and capability of compact cameras increases, Nauticam has developed a smaller and lighter water contact wide angle lens tailored specifically to the compact camera user.  Designed from the ground up to match the compact camera's form factor without sacrificing optical quality, the WWL-C is a powerful addition to not only Nauticam compact housings but also, via an optional adapter, to those from other manufacturers such as the Olympus TG-6 and their PT-059 housing.

Introducing Wet Wide Lens for Compact Cameras (WWL-C)

With the original Wet Wide Lens, the WWL-1, Nauticam used computer aided lens design software to create an underwater-specific corrective lens that allowed for an unprecedented 130º field-of-view with full zoom-through optics and extreme close focus capabilities.  The WWL-1 wasn't just for higher end cameras that already benefitted from interchangeable lenses to attain better image quality, the WWL-1 was designed to work with a variety of cameras that featured a 28mm equivalent lens including compacts and micro-four thirds. 

Delivering a stunningly sharp 130º field-of-view with 24mm equivalent lenses, the WWL-C also features zoom-through capable optics.** The WWL-C features a pre-installed metal buoyancy collar and a non-removable metal dome shade.  

The WWL-C will also feature an updated quick-release Bayonet Mount.  Lenses that feature the new Bayonet Mount II will not be compatible with previous Bayonet Mount adapters but all Bayonet Mount lenses will be able to be used with the new Bayonet Mount II Bayonet Mount Adapters without modification.  

In the sidebar you will find a list of anticipated housing compatibility along with the supported focal-length range as well as the necessary port configuration for the Bayonet Mount II standard.

 * = Deposit terms: you will be charged a refundable $500 deposit.  Once the WWL-C becomes available you will be contacted to continue with your purchase.  Should you decide to cancel your order you will be refunded your initial deposit.  Should you decide you wish to have your deposit refunded before production begins, email innovation@nauticam.com with your order details to process your refund.  Deposits are not transferable.
