Capture images and Full HD video at 200' beneath the surface with your Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera, thanks to this Ikelite Underwater Housing. It has built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode. There are also dual fiber-optic cable ports for flash connection. Mechanical controls provide access to all important camera functions.

The housing includes an aluminum mounting tray with an ergonomic quick-release grip handle, which improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. Built for durability, the enclosure is constructed from corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. It is designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA.

The housing is shipped without a required lens port and accepts one of several interchangeable ports for various Sony E-Mount lenses. For compatibility, see Port Chart.

Construction Details
  • Features a depth rating of 200'
  • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
  • Manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistant polycarbonate, which is clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera
  • Camera's large, bright LCD screen can be viewed edge-to-edge through back of housing
  • Due to proximity to nearby camera controls, housing does not provide access to camera's optical viewfinder
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Built-in, proprietary circuitry and Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector enable TTL exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode
  • Dual fiber-optic cable ports allow for connection of up to two Ikelite, Sea & Sea, or Olympus-type fiber-optic cables
  • Camera's built-in flash triggers external strobes but is not usable for proper subject illumination
  • Sync cord connection is recommended over fiber-optic cable, as it will eliminate shutter lag, battery drain, and heat build-up resulting from camera's flash having to fire and recycle
  • Sync cord also solves problems of signal interference, inconsistent exposure, and false triggering by other light sources
