About the Nikon Z6 & Z7 Camera:

The Nikon Z6/7 Mirrorless cameras are Nikon’s entry into the ever-growing mirrorless camera market. Essentially mirrorless versions of the Nikon D850 and D750, these cameras follow the trend of most major manufacturers going mirrorless for their main pro/consumer offerings. Both camera bodies have an identical control layout, leading to Aquatica being able to use one housing for the 2 cameras. The main difference between the 2 cameras would be the Z6 uses a 24MP full-frame sensor and the Z7 has a 45.7MP sensor. The Z6 also has a 25% faster maximum frame rate than the Z7 since it has smaller files. Both cameras capture 4K video though the Z6 creates down-sampled 24MP images whereas the Z7 uses a DX-cropped Super35 mode. The cameras have a new Z mount system to support the new line of Z mount lenses, however, Nikon has created the FTZ mount adapter to allow owners of traditional Nikkor F-Mount lenses with these new cameras.

About the Aquatica ADZ6 Housing:

As to be expected with all Aquatica housings, it is CNC machined from 6061 T6 Aluminium with a MIL-A-8625 anodized coating and baked on, extra-tough powder coat paint. All control shafts and push buttons are made from T304 stainless steel. This, as for all Aquatica housings, will take a licking and keep going!

The housing will support not only the new Z-mount lenses but also the FTZ Adapter. The adapter can be removed from the camera without first removing the camera from the housing. There is also a lens release for both F and Z mounts. As usual, all camera functions can be accessed by the housing. Two items of note that are specific to this housing:

  • The Sub Selector centre press and AF-ON control’s ergonomic placement (easily accessible with the shooter’s right thumb) allows the user to lock exposure or focus and take pictures
  • The “+” and “–“buttons have been moved, for access by the left thumb, next to the playback button. This allows the user to quickly zoom and check if the image is in focus.

All housing controls are spring-loaded and self-centering where needed. The user simply needs to install the mounting tray on the camera and slide the tray on the stainless-steel guide rails. It couldn’t be simpler!

In order to protect your expensive electronic gear from the elements, Aquatica’s Surveyor Vacuum System (valve and pump) is now included as standard equipment with all AZ6/7 housings. The vacuum system will provide that extra layer of security since the user can verify that if air is not seeping into the housing then water definitely will not either.

Handling the housing is via Aquatica’s acclaimed moulded grips, these have been the industry reference in comfort for the last 25 years. These lightweight yet sturdy grip handles are made in one piece and cannot come unglued, fall apart or corrode. Grips are provided with standard sized mounting holes ready to accept the most current strobes and their supporting arms. On top of the housing is an extra mounting point for attaching a focus/video light or other accessories, three additional standard sized mounting points are provided on the bottom of the housing, there you can attach various brackets, support or a tripod.


The Aquatica ADZ6 is supplied with the Galileo type eyepiece. This high quality and coated optical finder gives a bright and full view of the viewfinder. For those seeking the ultimate in viewing for still image, the optional Aqua View Finder, available in straight and 45 degrees version, are among the best of the industry, they can easily be installed in a matter of a few minutes by the user. The enlarged and enhanced image provided by the Aqua View Finder is second to none in clarity, it provides the photographer with tack sharp corner to corner viewing of the camera viewfinder for composing and critical focusing.
