Top Product Features:
  • Ikelite has finally release an affordable housing option for the popular Sony A6000. Ikelite basically took the format of their DSLR housings and shrunk it down into a perfectly-sized package for travel. A new line of MIL ports has been introduced to support many popular lenses. No Port Included! Contact us for port options.
  • TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. Our built-in proprietary circuitry tells your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately than with slave TTL strobes.
  • The camera's large, super-bright LCD screen is viewable edge-to-edge through the back of the housing. Due to proximity to nearby camera controls, this housing does not offer support of the camera's optical viewfinder.
  • This housing includes a balanced aluminum tray with our signature quick release handle for easy attachment and removal of strobes and video lights. This unique handle is curved slightly to fit the nature curvature of your hand, and features a soft over-mold which makes it a delight to hold. The complete tray and handle detaches with the removal of two nuts for packing or to attach the optional Tray with Dual Handles.
  • Non-Ikelite strobes can be used, but they cannot provide eTTL exposure or be adjusted manually through the housing. Special sync cords are available to connect non-Ikelite strobes from Nikonos, Inon, and Sea & Sea.
Main Specs:
  • Housing Type: Mirrorless
  • Depth Rating: 200ft/60m
  • Material: Polycarbonate
  • Strobe Connections: Ikelite TTL

It's everything you love about an Ikelite DSLR Housing, shrunk down into a perfectly-sized package for travel. You can impress friends with your photo gear or your photos—the only housing with built-in TTL strobe exposure helps you do both!

Housing shown with Mirrorless Port, not included. Please note that a compatible Mirrorless Port is required for waterproof operation of this housing.

The True TTL Advantage

Other housings simply waterproof your camera. An Ikelite TTL housing improves your photos. TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. Our built-in proprietary circuitry tells your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately than with slave TTL strobes.

Fiber optic slave flash units require the camera's flash to fire every time. This creates a shutter lag as you wait for the camera's flash to recycle in between shots, drains your camera's battery life, and builds up heat inside of the housing. Ikelite electronics translate direct electrical impulses from your camera, triggering your strobe and precisely adjusting its power without the need to fire the camera's flash. This eliminates the slave TTL strobe issues of signal interference, inconsistent exposure due to weak fiber optic transmission and false triggering caused by light rays bouncing off the water's surface or your buddy's flash going off.

Non-Ikelite strobes may be attached with the appropriate sync cord and operate non-TTL (manual exposure modes only) with this housing. Alternatively, two ports are provided for the connection of up to two Ikelite-, SEA&SEA-, or Olympus-type fiber optic cords. The camera's built-in flash may be used as a trigger for an external strobe, but is not usable to properly light your underwater photos. Use of an external strobe is recommended.

Lens Port System

An interchangeable lens camera demands a housing with interchangeable lens ports. It couldn't be more simple to change ports than this sytem—just press the port on and tighten three thumb screws. Feel positive reinforcement that the port is secure without any complex moving parts that can jam or break in a remote location.

This housing accepts a variety of ports to accommodate zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses. See port choices below. Lens port sold separately.

Construction

Special polycarbonate blends allow us to create an extremely strong yet clear and lightweight enclosure. We believe there's no substitute for inspecting the actual o-ring seal once your housing is closed. Our signature clear construction lets you see that the housing is watertight and dry before you enter the water, and provides full view of the camera while you're diving. Unlike aluminum, polycarbonate is fundamentally corrosion-resistant for easy maintenance year after year.

Like every Ikelite product, our housings are designed, built, and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. The average assembly technician is a certified scuba diver and has over 16 years of experience building Ikelite products. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and the most accessible and responsive customer service staff in the dive industry.

This housing requires the addition of a compatible lens port for waterproof operation. Lens port not included.
