Capture the beauty and variety of sea life at depths up to 262' with your Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera and 10-18mm f/4, 16mm f/2.8, or 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, thanks to this Sea & Sea MDX-a6000 Underwater Housing. Dual fiber-optic ports enable the connection of optional external strobes via cables. Mechanical controls afford access to all camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from a galvanized, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy. It ships with the ML Dome Port for the 10-18mm, 16mm f/2.8, or 16-50mm lens, and accepts the optional ML Flat Port 33 for the 30mm f/3.5 or 16-50mm lens. See System Chart for the most complete and up-to-date compatibility information. Additionally, an optional leak sensor can be installed to alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal.
