The Olympus OM-D E-M5 II is an impressive mirrorless camera, packing a punch in both features and image quality. Unfortunately, it isn’t too fond of H2O, so any underwater adventures are strictly off-limit. Or, they were -- that’s no longer the case.

Noted underwater housing manufacturer, Nauticam, has unveiled an aircraft aluminum housing for Olympus’s OM-D E-M5 II. Capable of going to depths of 100 m (330 ft), the NA-EM5II is designed with ruggedness and customization in mind, specifically in regards to handles, which can now be adjusted independently.

As with many of Nauticam’s other models, the NA-EM5II is equipped with leak detection and vacuum sensors that give audible and visual signals in case of a leak.

Designed to work perfectly with the OM-D E-M5 II, the NA-EM5II features dedicated buttons and large rubber knobs for easy control of the camera and lens while secure inside the housing.

Nauticam also made sure to incorporate all of the ports and attachments needed to securely attach their vast lineup of accessories.

The NA-EM5II housing is available now with a starting price tag of $1450 -- not including ports. For more information on the NA-EM5II and where you can purchase one, head on over to Nauticam USA.
