The Nauticam KOMODO-X housing uses the N120 Cinema port system, shared with Nauticam’s other N120 platform cameras which allows for an easy transition to the Nauticam Komodo-X from other N120 Nauticam systems. The N120 system also provides access to Nauticam’s line of premium optics such as the WACP-1/2 and SMC-1/2.

The housing also features adjustable handles with easy access to the cinema-style zoom and focus knobs.  On top of the housing is a 1/4″-20 cheese plate which allows for a wide variety of accessory mounting points.

The Nauticam KOMODO-X is also backed by Nauticam’s 2-year warranty.


The RED KOMODO-X is compatible with RED RF-PL adaptors and includes a locking RF mount. The Nauticam KOMODO-X housing offers full support of the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor along with the Canon EF to EOS R Adaptor with Variable ND Filter.  The left side of the housing features an easily accessible command wheel for making ND changes. Regardless of EF or RF lens selection, changing lenses is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any tools.  Note that when changing between RF and EF lenses, the camera must be removed from the housing to remove or install the RF to EF adapter.  Nauticam is constantly testing new lenses to provide optimized port and extension combinations.

There arelLarge cinema-styled control wheels on the housing, located within easy reach of the handles, allowing you to manually focus and zoom with supported lenses when used with the corresponding lens gear set.  

Not being limited to using DSLR lenses is crucial for cinema systems and the Nauticam KOMODO-X housing, when used with the 16410 N120 to N200 Port Adapter can support the use of Cinema Lenses and the associated N200 Port System.  Installation is quick, easy and requires no tools allowing seamless lens switching in the field – even when changing between DSLR and Cinema lenses.


The Atomos Shinobi SDI monitor or the Ninja V monitor can also be mounted in the external Nauticam NA-Shinobi-S housing or Nauticam Atomos Ninja V-S housing and be connected via SDI bulkheads and cables allowing greater flexibility when positioning the monitor on the Nauticam Komodo housing.

The Nauticam KOMODO housing features Nauticam’s field-tested Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System that provides constant updates on the water-tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. By drawing a slight vacuum inside the housing using a reliable and compact manual hand pump, the system is able to ensure water-tightness before entering the water as well as throughout the dive. A simple color-coded LED lighting system, easily visible at the rear of the housing 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.
