Capture photos and video at depths as great as 200' beneath the surface with your Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera, thanks to this updated version of the dedicated Ikelite Underwater Housing. The enclosure features built-in, proprietary circuitry and an Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector, allowing for TTL or manual exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord. Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode only. The housing is also fitted with dual fiber-optic cable ports as an alternative method of flash connection. Large, mechanical controls, including a newly added, ergonomic shutter lever, provide access to all important camera functions.

Another change in this version of the housing is that it's now made of a white ABS/polycarbonate blend, which is still corrosion-resistant but also reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface. The back plate is still clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. Additionally, this version features two standard 1/4"-20 threaded mounts for connection to an optional tray with a grip handle.

The housing can be connected to an optional mounting tray with an ergonomic quick-release grip handle, which improves balance and gives you an attachment point for an optional lighting arm. A lens port is required, and several interchangeable ports for various lenses are available separately. For compatibility details, see the Port Chart.

Construction Details

  • Features a depth rating of 200'
  • Designed, made by hand, and tested in the USA
  • Made of a white ABS/polycarbonate blend, which is still corrosion-resistant but also reflects sunlight to keep your camera cooler when shooting at or above the water's surface
  • Back plate is made of clear polycarbonate to allow you to monitor O-ring seal and maintain full view of camera. A port has been added for installation of optional vacuum valve to allow you to confirm watertight integrity before diving
  • Rear seal design prevents accidental twisting or stretching of O-ring, eliminating need for a groove or channel that can trap sand, dirt, or debris
  • Features two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps that are easy to use and virtually unbreakable
  • Camera's large, bright LCD screen can be viewed edge-to-edge through back of housing
  • Easy, front-loading camera mounting system
  • Battery and memory card compartments are readily accessible
  • Two standard 1/4"-20 mounts added on bottom for connection to optional tray

Strobe Connection and Operation

  • Built-in, proprietary circuitry and Ikelite bulkhead strobe connector enable TTL and manual exposure with optional, external Ikelite DS Substrobes attached via sync cord
  • Circuit powered by strobe, so there's no maintenance required and no batteries to change
  • Exposure compensation in TTL mode is supported using camera's built-in control
  • Housing provides a direct electrical connection to camera's external flash hot shoe
  • Non-Ikelite strobes are compatible in manual mode only
  • Sync cord attachment is as easy as screwing in a light bulb, and threaded fitting prevents accidental detachment during use
  • Bulkhead connection has been moved to top of housing to keep cords out of the way and reduce strain on cord ends
  • Various sync cords are available for Ikelite, Sea & Sea, Inon, and Nikonos strobes
  • 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 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
  • Fiber-optic connection bypasses TTL functionality
