There aren’t enough good things that can be said about this screen… Pixel density (the specification that results in sharpness) is greater than iPhone 6. The monitor is capable of displaying 85% of the NTSC color gamut, surpassing REC 709. These tech spec simply translate into the best color, contrast, and resolution available in this class.
The Nauticam NA-502 housing features the rugged build quality and advanced manufacturing expertise our user base has come to expect. The joystick navigation system used by the 500 series monitors is translated to four directional arrows, a center select button, and the dedicated “back” button. The interface is simple, but elegant, and perfectly suited to the underwater environment.
The form factor of 501/502 monitors is perfectly suited for an underwater housing, with HDMI / HD-SDI cables nestled between two readily available Canon LP-E6 Batteries.
HDMI and HD-SDI (502) are both supported by a single housing, providing an extremely broad range of camera support in a single underwater monitor system.
Highlights in focus edges, taking the guess work out of critical focus.
Extremely useful for judging exposure, pixel brightness is mapped to a color pattern used to see over and under exposed areas.
Available from any video page simply by clicking the joystick up arrow, zooming in to check focus has never been easier!
Right Angle Cable Connector
Provides clean cable routing, and protects the cable from wear and tear at the housing connection.
Joystick Navigation Pushbuttons

Vacuum Peace of Mind
