Nauticam will also debut three major new products – to be announced at the beginning of the show. In addition, several new accessory parts will be shown for the first time, including a flip-up diopter holder and cold-shoe mount.  

Nauticam 2011 

Since the 2010 DEMA show, Nauticam has demonstrated its market leading design and engineering prowess by releasing 11 new camera housings including 4 new Nikon and Canon SLRs, updated housing for the PhaseOne 645DF medium camera with IQ180 digital back, over 50 new ports and housing accessories, the most complete underwater solution for both micro 4/3 systems and Sony NEX systems, and the most functional light and accessory mounting solution on the market. 

Japan Earthquake/Tsunami Housing

Also on display will be a very special Nauticam D700 housing, owned by Mr. Nagaaki Sato, that was recovered from the wreckage of the March 2011 Eastern Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster. Thousands of people were lost in the town, and Mr. Sato’s dive shop was completely destroyed. As detailed below, Mr. Sato will present a seminar about the local marine life before and after the event. We are very pleased to welcome him and co-sponsor his presentation.
