Sony MPK-URX100A Overview

  • 1Description

Allowing you to shoot beneath the sea with all Sony RX100-series cameras, this Underwater Housing is a protective casing featuring dual water-tight gaskets that enables you to photograph in depths down to 130'. The dedicated design maintains access to all camera controls, including a rotary lens-ring dial, zoom lever, push buttons for menu access, and a large lever-type shutter button. The housing also permits the use of the cameras' built-in flash, and an included detachable diffuser can be used to lessen vignetting and provide a more even wash of lighting. Additionally, the front of the housing has 67mm filter threads to permit the attachment of color-correction filters or other threaded lens accessories. A top accessory shoe is available for working with an optional external flash, and the bottom of the housing also incorporates three 1/4"-20 mounts for mounting an accessory grip or handle.

    Sony MPK-URX100A Reviews

    Underwater Housing for RX100-Series Cameras is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The power button DOES work Unlike some of the reviewers have stated, the power button on the housing is functional. The problem is that it's easy to setup wrong when putting the housing together. The slot in the rubber piece that slips over the plastic peg is about twice the width of the peg itself. In order for it to work, you need to insert the peg on the right side of the rubber piece's slot. If you insert it to the left or the center, the nub on the rubber piece won't be able to make contact with the RX100's power button.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read if you're comparing between this and ikelite I have had the chance to try this with extra flash light . The results are ok . They said you can use all the features of the camera however that's not true. The selection wheel (most important thing) can't be used. Therefore you can't shoot manual as u can't change the shutter speed or aperture. You can use the camera on shutter priority . Or auto or Aperture . Yet this is still good for videos. It floats in salty water. And you can use the flash to trigger other flashes. I do think this is still better than ikelite housing as the other can't be used to trigger flashes without fiber cords.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and reliable case for RX100 IV Just finished a trip to the Caribbean using this housing and it performed very well. The first thing you'll notice is just how bulky it is. I was more used to the slim fit of Canon's underwater housings for their Digital Elph line of pocket shooters. Sony's unit must make room for the full throw of the 70mm (equiv.) zoom lens, a mechanism to turn the control ring around the lens, and flexibility to fit all five RX100 models. Once you get over the size, you'll appreciate the amount of control you have over the unit. You'll have access to nearly every button and lever on the camera, including the control ring. About the only functionality you'll lose is the ability to spin the click wheel in the lower right of back controls. But, you can still operate that wheel as a 4-way D-pad with 4 dedicated buttons. In terms of usability, size does play a factor. The bulk might make one-handed operation tricky for folks with small hands. It will definitely consume the use of one hand entirely; you can't just let it dangle from your wrist. So, climbing a ladder back onto a boat, managing your flippers and snorkel, etc. can be a challenge. I usually had to hand my camera off at that point. Once in the water, the weight of the housing is balanced nicely by its buoyancy. It's pretty easy to keep it pointed at a target, even one-handed. If you let go of it, it will float, but it's not fighting you while trying to shoot. Still, you'll need 2 hands to keep it steady for video, especially with any kind of current. My only wish is that the camera itself had a higher top end on LCD screen brightness. It was the first thing I had to dig through the settings on once underwater. And, it only goes up 2 levels, which was still a challenge depending on the angle of sunlight. As such, I never made use of control ring and relied solely on full auto mode. All in all, I made out with some great photos and HD/4K video. And had the peace of mind and confidence to take a $900 camera underwater

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, reliable housing but a bit bulkier that it should be I used it on my last week's diving trip. All basics worked well - good controls, did not fog - and most importantly did not leak. The housing comes with multiple inserts and rings for various RX100 models - including mine M5 which fit perfectly. All buttons seems to work, shutter is large and easy to access. Pros: - No leaks, all buttons align and work well. - The 65mm port - I installed a filter that can be easily pushed away when on surface. Far easier way to fix colors than photo postprocessing on computer. - Shoe - I added a simple lume cube light on it, it came handy when passing a dark portion of a wreck in 60ft. Cons: - It is bulky, with a lot of void space inside. Compared to several previous housings I owned (all Canon) this one is much larger than it could be which beats the purpose of using very compact RX100 camera. Clearly Sony has one-size-fits-all housing and just throws more inserts to match various models. Canon seems to be way ahead of Sony in precisely fitting housings to each camera. Nevertheless the combination of this housing and RX100 M5 yields incredible underwater photos, especially with 65mm red filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little housing Allows access to all the important camera functions on the RX100-V. Very well designed. Works with my two TTL slave strobes but also has optic fiber adapters if needed. Perfect for macro and near subjects, wide-angle shots will require an add-on lens. Low cost but high quality. Very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 out of 10 I have had previous iterations of Sony's underwater housing for cybershot cameras such as the MPK-WEB. I find this a vast improvement. The controls are well spaced and intuitive, giving full access to all the cameras features. The additional locking mechanism on the also side ensures no chance of inadvertently opening the back door while in use. I cant wait to try it out on our next adventure!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stuff Amazing housing case for the RX100 V but the on/off button is not available, you have to open and turn off manually, thats not good because the RX100 V turn off automatically in a few minutes, you have to check your setting before you get in the water

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SONY Underwater Housing for RX100 Series I have not yet used this device underwater, but it's easy to see that it's a very well engineered product. All controls are easily accessible, and the camera goes into the housing with no problem. Sony did a great job in building this unit. It's very well made and I cannot think of anything they could have done to make it better. I will use it with the RX100 M5, and this will increase it's value to me.
