Sony A6000 flash control in dive case

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

must of the Sony Alpha line users know or heard about the problem that there is no way to turn the flash OFF when it is poped up. so until sony is not changing the software / menu and add the point flash OFF

 

i just found out that the flash switch in the cam is working with a magnet , there is a small magnet on the little arm of the flash and thats how the cam knows that the flash is poped up.

 

so what i did i added a magnet to the backdoor of my meikon/neewer housing , by sliding the magnet i can switch now my flash OFF even when it is poped up.

 

ist not the super pro solution but it works fine and costs ~20€.

 

i made a little video about it ( YT: Sony A6000 - divespotchecker ) , if somebody needs more ideas or help please contact me

 

 

 

i tryed to post my Video here or link it but it doesn t work , i hope it is ok like this

 

best regards

I recently had the same issue. However, I solved it by using blue painters tape to secure the flash in place keeping the flash from popping up by accidentally when hitting the flash button on the Meikon housing.
