Capture clear, detailed images at depths as great as 200' with Ikelite's Underwater Housing for your Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark VI or Mark VII camera. Two fiber optic ports enable the connection of external Ikelite DS strobes (requires Fiber Optic Converter #4401.1 and Fiber Optic Cord #4501, sold separately). Large, ergonomic mechanical controls provide access to all camera functions except for the flash and viewfinder switches. The camera's fully extended zoom lens fits within the integrated 3.9" lens port.

Built for durability, the housing is designed, constructed, and tested in the USA. It's manufactured from 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 clear to allow you to monitor the O-ring seal and maintain a full view of the camera. The lens port accepts user-supplied external wide-angle and macro add-on lenses for an enhanced view. Optional color-correction filters can also be added to restore colors that get absorbed by the water.

Nice Quality Housing

Housing seems to be well made and all of the controls work on the Sony RX100 VII. The optical ports work well with the external flash. I am not going diving until next month and have not tried it underwater yet.

Great Underwater camera case for the RX100 Mark VII

I bought this case shortly before Covid stroke in anticipation of doing some snorkeling. Unfortunately the case was collecting dust for the few years thereafter - but finally I was able to use it! 1. Inserting the camera is a breeze. Unlike other cases it is extremely easy to insert the camera - which is great! 2. I didn't ever expereience fog in the case as I have seen it in other cases before. Highly appreciated! 3. The case is really sturdy and well built! I never had problems pushing the buttons I was trying to hit! 4. The case really allows the full extent of the lens which makes it work the full range - which is awesome! (well - if the water is clear, the sun is bright and you can hold steady that is) 5. Sunglare and reflections as I have seen it on other cases didn't happen. The case is really great in making the camera and the screen content easily visible even when snorkling and when the sun is at its brightest! 6. Very easy to clean. On the downside: A. The case is definitely a bit bulkier than the others I had before. B. Be careful with the strap. After using it the third (!!) time I noticed that the rubber was showing some weakness (and you do not want to have the case falling - I do have my doubts that that would be good). As the case is technically already 2 years old I think I am beyond my warranty and have to buy new ones. But: Be careful! All in all: In my experience the Sony RX100 series (used the II, III, and IV before already for underater photography) is super awesome for underwater photography as it is super fast on, focuses super fast and the pictures are sharp. Together with this case it is an awesome combination!

Amazing, and made in USA

I purchased this last month before I several underwater trips. This housing is incredibly well made and is solid. I debated between sea frogs and this product and Ikelites construction is meant for serious usage. The only feature you can’t utilize while underwater is the flash release. I spent about 2 weeks playing with the housing in the pool and on land before I headed on vacation. I recommend you do the same as the controls are there but have a different feel. I also realized it was hard to hold so I added an Ikelite grip and highly recommend it. This allows a good firm grip while Scuba diving or Snorkeling and also provides an attachment point.

Does this work with the RX100 shooting grip attached?
Asked by: Richard
No, it will not. Any additional camera grips would have to be removed before inserting the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI Digital Camera inside the Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark VI. There is not enough clearance to use a grip with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI Digital Camera, and attempting to use one would prevent the housing from closing properly for underwater usage and may prevent the buttons on the housing from properly aligning with the buttons on the camera.
