  1. Much as it hurts me to do this. I’m putting my barely-used and mint-condition Sony A6500/Fantasea underwater kit up for sale. 12 months ago I foolishly tried to buy my way into a better work/life balance, with more time spent underwater. But I have failed resoundingly. So the kit has been used on a grand total of a single one-week dive trip in the Maldives in January last year, and hasn't got wet since, so it's in as mint a condition as used kit can be really. The image quality this compact little kit puts out is really quite exceptional. Comparing the results to what my dive buddy was getting with his Nauticam/D800e setup, it really wasn’t giving up a lot (with added bonus of terrific 4k video as well). The phase-detect autofocus is Sony’s latest tech, and performs terrifically (even in dim, and murky water). The image quality is fantastic, and the housing is compact, comfortable in the hands, and as easy to operate underwater as the pricier aluminium options (Fantasea really have done an excellent job with the ergonomics). I’ve sold off the more specific lenses and ports, so this is basically the base Fantasea kit. The flat port paired with the nifty little 16-50mm will let you easily expand with Fantasea’s excellent wide-angle and macro wet lenses (which allow you to shoot both wide-angle and macro in a single dive). And to make life easier (and reduce the stress of taking so much expensive kit beneath the waves) there’s also the terrific Leak Sentinel v5 Vacuum System (with LED indicators), and a moisture detector in the housing itself. The kit includes: CAMERA: Sony A6500 Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 3x Sony NP-FW50 Batteries HOUSING: Fantasea FA6500 Housing for Sony a6500 and a6300 Fantasea FML Flat Port 34 Leak Sentinel V5 SeaLife Flex­connect Dual Tray 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Ball Joint Adapter SL999 ­(male) 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Grip 6x SeaLife Flex­connect Flex Arms 2X Sea & Sea Fibre Optic Cables Spare O-Rings, grease, vacuum pump etc. etc. So get yourself some cheap happiness at the mere cost of my misery/failure! $4,900 AUD worth of practically new kit, yours for $3400 AUD / $2300 USD + Shipping Pickup available from Melbourne, Australia. Or I can ship it wherever you need. Cheers, Mark
  2. Greetings! I have just recently upgraded and am selling my mirrorless underwater system!

Good condition, gently used with signs of normal wear.

Fantasea FA6500 Housing AND FML Flat Port 34 with zoom gear ($650 o.b.o) The housing has been set for the a6500, but can be converted to be used with the a6300. I will include the tools and guide that came with the housing. The housing is in great, almost-new condition, but with some scratches on one of the fiber optic connection holes.

I will include original o-rings and also Fantasea replacement o-rings. (Original Retail Price $750). Also included is the Fantasea FML Flat Port 34 with zoom gear to fit the Sony 16-50mm lens.

(see photo) Fantasea - AOI UWL-09F Wide Angle Wet Lens with protective case and adapter. ($400 o.b.o.) A wonderful wet wide angle lens, fits a 67mm housing port thread. 130 degree field of view. The original price is $700 for a new one, this one is used and has some minor scuffs and one small scratch on the dome. This has not interfered with photos as far as I have noticed! I will try to upload some sample photos that I took with it recently. I used this wet lens with the Sony a6500 and kit 16-50mm lens with very satisfying results! Please direct message me with any questions!

  6. As deeply as it pains me to do this. I’m putting my complete, barely-used and mint-condition Sony A6500/Fantasea underwater kit up for sale. 12 months ago I foolishly tried to buy my way into a better work/life balance, with more time spent underwater. But I have failed resoundingly. So the kit has been used on a grand total of a single one-week dive trip in the Maldives in January last year, and hasn't got wet since, so it's in as mint a condition as used kit can be really. The image quality this compact little kit puts out is really quite exceptional. Comparing the results to what my dive buddy was getting with his Nauticam/D800e setup, it really wasn’t giving up a lot (with added bonus of terrific 4k video as well). The phase-detect autofocus is Sony’s latest tech, and performs terrifically (even in dim, and murky water). The image quality is fantastic, and the housing is compact, comfortable in the hands, and as easy to operate underwater as the pricier aluminium options (Fantasea really have done an excellent job with the ergonomics). It's a complete kit sans strobes. I wanted the feature-set of a fully-laden Nauticam setup, with all the mod-cons, but without all of the weight, so I went with the A6500 paired with the excellent Fantasea Housing and Ports, and Sealife Flexconnect Handles and Arms (which are great for rapidly adjusting the position of your strobes underwater). It's setup for wide-angle (Sony 10-14mm f/4), Macro (Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro), Fisheye (Sony 20mm f/2.8 + VCL-ECF2 Fisheye Converter), and general shooting (Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6), with all of the necessary ports and extensions. And to make life easier (and reduce the stress of taking so much expensive kit beneath the waves) there’s also the terrific Leak Sentinel v5 Vacuum System (with LED indicators), a moisture detector in the housing itself, and an LED strobe trigger for fast and consistent strobe control via fibre optics. Fully assembled (sans strobes) the rig only weighs 4kg (that's under 9lbs!) so it's a terrific improvement size/weight wise compared to a conventional DSLR rig, and one that can travel with you safely in your carry-on luggage. The only thing that needs to be added are strobes or video lights, and you’ll be off shooting. The full list of components is as follows: CAMERA: Sony A6500 Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Sony E 10-18mm f/4 Sony E 20mm f/2.8 Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Sony VCL-ECF2 Fisheye Converter 3x Sony NP-FW50 Batteries HOUSING: Fantasea FA6500 Housing for Sony a6500 and a6300 Fantasea FML Dome Port A6 Fantasea FA­2 LED Strobe Trigger Fantasea FML Flat Port 34 Fantasea FML Lens Gears SEL1018 2x Fantasea FML Port Extension 25 Fantasea Light Shielding Pad SEL16F28 Leak Sentinel V5 SeaLife Flex­connect Dual Tray 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Ball Joint Adapter SL999 ­(male) 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Grip 4x SeaLife Flex­connect Flex Arm 2X Sea & Sea Fibre Optic Cables Spare O-Rings, grease, vacuum pump etc. etc. The kit cost $8,960 AUD, and I'm looking for $6,300 AUD for it (that's about $4500 USD at the moment). So get yourself some cheap happiness at the mere cost of my misery/failure! Pickup available from Melbourne, Australia. And I'm happy to ship worldwide. Cheers, Mark Here’s the kit: And here are a few shots from it that I quite like:
  7. Hello! So I'm diving into a Sony a6500 with Fantasea housing. I'm starting out with the kit 16-50 lens with the respective port and gears. I'm evaluating getting a macro setup fairly quickly and looking at the available lenses for macro there's the kit 16-50 with 12.5 diopter, Sony Macro 50mm and the Sony Macro 90mm, you could use the diopter for the last two. So I would like to see if anybody can help me with sample photos or videos of a comparison of the 16-50mm and 50mm with and without the diopter. The 90mm is out of the question right now as it's a pretty expensive set up, from lens, converter, port etc... With this I'm trying to answer two fundamental questions: (1) is it worth getting the 50mm macro lens (I'd imagine it's much sharper image) vis a vis the kit lens with diopter, and (2) what level of supermacro can I get from the 50mm macro lens with the diopter. For wide there are two immediate choices: 16mm w\ fisheye converter and the 10-16mm wide lens. The fisheye option is cheaper, but I fear it suffers from less sharpness and I'm particularly choosy between fisheye and plain wide. I would think you get better results with the 10-16mm as its a more specialized lens and you don't have the fisheye converter distortion. I've found online articles that treat both subjects, but they left me with questions. For Macro: how does the kit lens compare to 50mm macro (as both have same focal length) and how they perform with diopter. For wide I haven't seen anything on the 10-16mm lens, just of the Tokina\Canon lenses, which are expensive to set up. The opportunity cost (ie dont get any lens) is to just buy the Wide Angle and Diopter external add ons, so it's a question of quality and how much you gain by getting the dedicated lens (which obviously looses on flexibility when shooting). If someone sees something incoherent in the post or would like to reframe their response to help with feedback it's much appreciated. I'd think I'd see more a6500/a6300 users given the relative low cost\high quality you seem to get vis a vis other mirrorless of similar quality (em1 mk2 and GH5) or dSLR equivalents (d500), albeit these edge out in other areas. Basically the a6500 costs about half of these other options right now. Cheers!

  12. Hey all, I am in a bit of a bind; I've seen some discussion on this for land based stuff, but not for underwater. Right now, Sony is offering a pretty good cashback for its mirrorless cameras and I would like to upgrade to something better than my old canon point and shoot. The two contenders are the a6500 and a7ii. I can currently get an a7ii for about a 200 bucks cheaper than the a6500, including accounting for my intended setup (16-50mm kit / 28-70mm and a 50mm f/2.8 macro + equivalent accessories) Quirks of the respective housings aside, i would like your thoughts on the following: 1. Autofocus ability while underwater - how does the a6500's 'best in class' focusing system translate underwater, in comparison to the a7ii 2. Ease of use (i note the a7ii has more control dials), but how does this translate underwater (assuming all dials are accessible on a housing) 3. Image quality - i won't be doing much video, and i've heard the a6500's sensor is nearly as good as the full frame sensor on the a7ii. 4. Better value long term - noting that the a7ii has a relatively outdated sensor, lenses are more expensive, but it still full frame, vs the top of the line APS-C sensor in the a6500 Cheers!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm looking for a Sony a6300 or a6500 housing with ports/dome. Flexible with options and kits. Only after metal housings. Many thanks!
  14. I thought I would quickly share my experience using a Sony a6500 underwater. I am using: Sony a6500 in Nauticam housing with Sola 3500 and Intovatec 2500 lights. Zoom - Sony 18-55mm lens in N85 Flat Port 72. Macro - Inon UCL for macro in M67 Flip Diopter Holder. Wide - Sony 10-18mm + Zen Underwater DP-170 Fisheye Dome Port The video here has mostly a6500 footage (0:23 - 3:16): Pros: Having IBIS in a6500 helps to stabilize footage vs. none in the a6300 Using Sony lenses with OSS helps even more Fast autofocus works really well for UW video - especially when subjects move a lot I could get 3+ dives without changing batteries using the Nauticam 2,500 mAh battery pack. Cons: The Sony UW white balance sucks and always need to be corrected in post-production (I use Premiere Pro CC Lumetri). The 4K (3840 x 2160) 30 fps would be better at 100 Mbps and not 60.
  15. Hi friends, I'm considering a Sony A6500 in a Nauticam housing, but I have a lot of doubts about the strobes. 1- I want to use my actual Ikelite strobes DS160 and DS161. It seems the TTL will work only with fiber optic cables, am I wrong? 2- If that is true, there is no Nauticam led trigger to avoid the recycle time of the internal camera flashlight. Do someone knows if the Fantasea one (http://www.fantasea.com/s.nl/it.A/id.748/.f) will WORK and FIT into Nauticam A6500 housing?? 3- If in the future i want to replace the Ikelite strobes for Inon Z330 or Z240: can I use the same fiber optic cables? do i have to purchase anything else? Sorry if someone thinks these are silly questions, but I'm coming from a Nikon reflex, Ikelite housing and wired strobes, so I'm really lost in the compatibility setup, changing EVERYTHING. Any answer will be very helpfull for me, thanks!! Albert
  16. Hi All, Piece by piece I'm building my first underwater rig. Sony a6500 (only because I couldn't bare taking my work cameras underwater). I read a few things about domes being positioned correctly etc. so I have this to ask. How specific are domes to lenses? For instance, I have a Sony 10-18mm, Fantasea housing, dome port and 25mm extension (as per their suggestion). In addition to the 10-18 I have a 50mm just for walk around. Can you put a normal lens in a dome port? If domes are super specific, should 3rd party lenses not be considered? Thoughts? Thanks
  17. Hi, Looking to upgrade from my current gear. After a bit of research and reading these forums the Sony A6500 with Sony 10 to 18 F/4 lens in a nauticam housing (with 7" dome) appears to be the best to suit me. Currently one Inon 240Z strobe (would like 2 but $$ limiting at moment with upgrade of gear). I do a lot of technical wreck diving (with camera) (typically 30 to 65 metres) and also shallow reef/muck photos. Have had a great couple of years playing with my Canon with 18 to 55 lens and 50 mm macro. Any thoughts / experience with the Sony A6500 for underwater photos? Interested in the low light capabilities.... Comments or advice? Thanks!
  18. I just finished testing the Sony A6500 with the Fantasea housing. Absolutely loved it! I used the 16-50mm lens, and played around with wet lenses underwater. The UWL-09F wide angle lens and the UCL-05LF were the ones I tested. The Sony A6500 has been gaining a lot of interest lately, both above water and under. In my opinion it's one of the best mirrorless cameras in the market at this point. The price point is a tad high, I would love to see it a couple of hundred dollars less, but it's still a good deal and prices will probably drop soon. The Fantasea housing is affordable, reliable, very well designed and great for travel. Fantasea put a lot of thought and work into their first mirrorless housing and it paid off!
