You can capture the beauty of sea life at depths as great as 250', thanks to the black Sea & Sea MDX-a6300 Underwater Housing for Sony's Alpha a6500, a6300, or a6000 Mirrorless Camera. Dual fiber-optic cable ports enable the connection of optional external strobes via cables. Mechanical controls afford access to virtually all camera functions.

Built for durability, the housing is constructed from a precision-machined, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy. It ships without a required lens port and accepts a series of interchangeable ports for different lenses, including the ML Flat Port 33 for Sony's 30mm f/3.5 Macro or 16-50mm and the ML Dome Port for the 10-18mm, 16mm f/2.8, or 16-50mm. For full, up-to-date compatibility details, see the System Chart. Additionally, an optional leak sensor can be installed to alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal.

Construction Details

  • Depth rating: 250'
  • Optional leak sensor can be installed to alert you immediately in unlikely event of a breach in waterproof seal
  • Optional Leak Sentinel vacuum system also available to confirm watertight integrity
  • Weight is roughly same as that of MDX-a6000 housing, but redesigning of key components and greater precision in machining have allowed for adjustment in underwater buoyancy for better balance
  • Made from corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy
  • Equipped with front and rear sacrificial zinc anodes, which corrode in seawater to prevent sensitive parts of housing from doing so
  • Three 1/4"-20 threaded mounts on bottom enable mounting onto optional tray, tripod, or monopod
  • Cold shoe/accessory shoe mount on top for lighting arm connection

Strobe Connection and Use

  • Dual fiber-optic cable ports enable connection of optional external strobes via cables

  • Mechanical push-buttons, dials/knobs, and lever enable access to virtually all camera functions
  • Control dial can be reached and operated easily with your thumb
  • Large mode dial is easy to turn with thumb and forefinger, even when wearing gloves
  • Movie recording button located right underneath right-hand dial, and surrounding area is hollowed out to avoid accidental pressing

  • Luminescent buttons make it easy to view and distinguish controls in low-light conditions
  • Attach optional SA8 Tray and Grips to improve balance and handling
