This Ikelite 6842.55 Underwater Housing for Sony a33 & a55 Cameras allows TTL operation with Ikelite digital DS SubStrobes when connected to the housing's bulkhead by a sync cord. The circuitry provides four 1/3 f/stop increments over or under flash compensation to be added to or subtracted from any compensation entered into the camera. Seven manual power settings in half-stop increments allow for complete creative control. All choices are obtained by simply rotating a knob on the housing back.

The housing is rated to a depth of 200' (60 m). The auto exposure lock and focus lock are placed where they can be activated with your thumb while taking a picture. Camera installation is quick and simple and the o-ring seal can be checked visually through the clear housing.

The Release Handle system allows for easy attachment and removal of SubStrobe mounting arms at the touch of a button. Two screws remove the handle and tray assembly for traveling. The housing is sized and weighted for near neutral buoyancy and superb handling underwater. An External Strobe is recommended to improve the images by reducing the illumination of particles suspended in the water.

An assortment of interchangeable lens ports allows use of most macro, wide angle, and zoom lenses. The Ikelite Super-Eye magnifier provided with the housing secures to the camera eyepiece and offers enhanced viewing while wearing a diving mask.

Note: Requires Lens Port to match specific lens on SLR camera. Please also note that some zoom lenses might require addition of a Close-Up #4 diopter filter on the lens.

        Comments about Ikelite 6842.55 Underwater Housing for Sony a33 & a55 Cameras:

        Some people complain about not able to use the camera flash. If you spend this much on the camera and housing, buy the proper flash/strobe.
