IKELITE COMPACT TTL UNDERWATER HOUSING FOR SONY ALPHA A6300*
It’s clear that the Sony Alpha a6300 is going to be one of the most exciting systems to shoot underwater this year.
We’re excited to announce a brand new underwater housing for this powerful new mirrorless camera system.
- Sony’s new 4D FOCUS system is purported to be the fastest among current APS-C mirrorless camera systems.
- We offer the only housing with integrated TTL circuit. This allows direct communication between the camera and external strobe for the most accurate exposure possible underwater. An electrical flash connection is faster, more reliable, and less draining than its fiber optic counterpart.
- Full support for the sharpest, fastest lenses available including the 16-35mm f/4 Vario-Tessar T () , 24-70 f/4 Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T () , and many more! (*) Our optical grade acrylic dome ports are custom designed specifically for underwater use to give you image quality comparable to glass at a fraction of the weight.
- Built using our brand new light gray colored ABS-PC blend which boasts superior strength, keeps your camera cooler in the sun, and provides more contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal. The housing is lightweight yet durable and inherently corrosion-proof for years of low maintenance performance.
- A front loading camera tray for easy assembly and ergonomic controls for all important camera functions including the rear dial control. Control placement is optimized to take advantage of the muscle memory you’ve already developed from shooting on the surface. Functions are marked clearly on the back of the housing with laser engraving for easy identification even when wearing a dive mask.
- Depth rated to 200ft/60m.
And so much more! Full details are available on our website including our lens port chart and information on compatible accessories.
