Underwater shutterbugs who prefer Sony cameras now have a new option for housing their cameras when they go diving.
Underwater imaging company Fantasea Line recently introduced its latest FA6500 housing for the Sony a6500 and a6300 mirrorless cameras.
The FA6500 Housing features an ergonomic, stylish and durable design with access to all essential camera functions. An interchangeable FML lens port system allows the diver to use a wide range of lenses underwater. A standard M16 port allows for optional connectors and accessories to be installed on the housing, including HDMI, vacuum valve or electronic strobe triggering bulkheads. For a maximal sense of security, the housing comes with a leak detector installed inside.
Depth rated to 60m/200 feet, the Fantasea FA6500 is shock-resistant and protects the camera from water, sand, dust, frost, impact, as well as other damaging elements and harmful occurrences.
The FA6500 Housing was designed to be compatible with a complete accessory system, enabling photographers to enhance the quality of their images. It’s a6500-camera-compatible and also sports an a6300 conversion kit, which includes several parts and housing conversion instructions. For the non-mechanically inclined, the conversion can also be carried out by an authorized Fantasea dealer or service center.
The FA6500 Housing retails for US$980/921 Euros and doesn’t include the lens port, which you’ll need to buy separately.
