Attention, serious underwater shutterbugs: SEA&SEA has introduced a new housing for the Sony Alpha a6000 mirrorless digital camera, the company announced this month.
“The MDX-a6000 is SEA&SEA’s first housing for a mirrorless digital camera,” the company states. “This addition to the SEA&SEA MDX underwater housing line-up adds unique variety for underwater photographers. As always, SEA&SEA maintains high standards of advanced craftsmanship with this housing. Constructed from black galvanized corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, the MDX-a6000 is a sturdy protective structure for the Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera. Two zinc diodes are attached to the front and rear of the case for added protection against electrolysis damage. The MDX-a6000 showcases SEA&SEA’s attention to detail, as all functions of the camera can be used underwater. A new format for ML mount ports was created to accommodate the following lenses: Sony 16mm f/2.8 Wide Angle lens, Sony 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens, Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom lens and Sony 10-18mm Wide Angle Zoom lens. The camera’s LCD monitor can be tilted up to 10° for enhanced viewing through the large LCD window. SEA&SEA’s optional leak sensor can be installed into this housing, which provides an alert upon any water entry. A depth rating of 100m/330ft provides versatility to any underwater photographer.”
In addition to the housing, SEA&SEA says it has designed a new ML mount for ports and provides support for the Sony 16mm f/2.8 Wide Angle lens, 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens, 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom lens and 10-18mm Wide Angle Zoom lens. The company also offers support for fiber-optic strobe triggering and the camera’s LCD can be tilted 10° for improved viewing.
The housing will be shipped beginning on September 29th with a retail price of US$1695.95.
