  1. GREAT information. Thanks! I'll be shooting with the 16-50mm kit and likely set it to AF-A. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks! It does look like it comes with it, but maybe I'll call BH Photo to make sure. They said it is included in the kit so it looks like I will be all set. I didn't think going form the a5000 to the a6300 would be such a learning curve, but it is. Imagine my surprise when I couldn't figure out how to zoom and then thought "I'm diving with this camera in 7 days. My other housing had a lever to zoom, how the heck does the Fantasea zoom?" Thanks for your help! I think I can see online you have to stack up rings and then you can manually zoom in/out with the zoom ring.
  3. PHEW! I knew it was a dumb question. The housing is coming in this weekend and I'm leaving for a trip on Wednesday and I kept thinking "am I missing something?" THanks! See, dumb question.
  4. Brand new Sony a6300 user (previously owned a5000). The sony a5000 had the zoom in/out on the top where the shutter release is. I can see that I can assign features to various keys. I tried assigning the AF/MF button to zoom. Failed. It didn't do anything. I will be using this camera underwater and I gather I won't be able to use the zoom ring. I've tried figuring this out via online videos, but none of them see to dial down to this one thing I can't figure out. Help! I know it's easy and it's likely starting me in the face. How do I get this thing to zoom in/out without using the zoom ring? THANK YOU!!
  5. Thanks! I have to agree with the improvement. A dive friend purchased their a7 and it looks much better than the sony a5000 model I had where the levers literally snapped only 2 dives in on the one. I was quite impressed with his housing compared to the original sony a5000. That said, I'm still gun shy.
  6. Thanks! That's good to hear. Something I'll think about then.
  7. I've heard good things about fantasea. I didn't know they had housing for the Sony a models. I'll take a look, but I gather the Fantasea a5000 is hard to get, but maybe the Sony a6300? Thanks!
  8. I have a Sony a5000 and have unfortunately gone through two Meikon housings. Each time the zoom lever (the spring) broke. The one only last 3 dives. No refunds/exchanges offered by the company. Super sad face. The Nauticam Sony a5000 housing has been long discontinued. Money is tight clearly. If I had the money I would've bought the Nauticam or Ikelite housing a long time ago. I have a friend who is willing to sell me a Sony a6300 for cheap, but there's no point if I can't find a reliable housing. For this reason I'm in search of a Nauticam or Ikelite housing for a Sony a5000 or Sony a6300. Anyone? Thanks in advance!
  9. Have you found good luck with the SeaFrogs/Meikon line?
  10. Greetings from New England where we find fun in walking out gear in over rocks and boulders to dive in 32F waters with 10 foot viz. Newer photographer. Thanks for having me!
