Attention Canon Powershot users: NAUTICAM has an underwater housing for you!
(DiverWire) If you have a Canon Powershot S110, Nauticam housings has exciting news for you. The company, well-known for high-quality underwater housings for digital cameras and video systems, has released the NA-S110. This versatile new housing should prove to be the housing of choice for demanding S110 enthusiasts who want to capitalize on everything this pocket powerhouse has to offer in a refined, rugged and easy to operate system.
When Canon introduced the first Powershot S90 a few years ago, it kicked off a revolutionary niche of high performance pocket cameras with solid enthusiast features. Since that time, the series (S90, S95, S100) have dominated this segment of the market with relatively large sensors, beautiful image quality and full RAW capability. The competition is increasing, but the new Canon S110 should be every bit as successful as its predecessors.
Retaining much of what made the S100 such a huge success, the S110 presents nicely with a 12.1mp Canon 1/1.7” CMOS sensor and Digic 5 processor. The 24-120mm equivalent lens is enhanced by Intelligent Image Stabilization that is suggested to offer an impressive four stops of exposure latitude. At wide-angle settings the lens is remarkably fast with a variable aperture of F2.0-5.9 that supports low light wide-angle work. S110 has one of the smallest form factors of any quality compact, and still allows for independent control dials accessing shutter speed and aperture in manual mode. Also noteworthy: 80-12,800 ISO Range, a new touch sensitive 3” 460k dot PureColor II G screen and a built in 3 stop neutral density filter. A new “Zoom Plus” feature offers additional digital zooming in JPEG with pixel interpolation to help preserve image quality. While GPS has been removed on the S110, WiFi has been added that can allow the camera to sync to the GPS on the shooter’s smart phone.
Nauticam has extensive experience designing professional grade aluminum housings for the compact digital camera market and that experience shows in every detail of the NA-S110. With the growing demand for more professional features in ever smaller camera bodies and housings – Nauticam delivers. The ability to maintain complete artistic control while shooting RAW in a housing the size of one’s hand is the ultimate goal for some – and it is a definite reality now.
