Waterproof Housing for Sony A6000
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.
An interchangeable lens camera demands a housing with interchangeable lens ports. It couldn't be more simple to change ports than this sytemjust 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.
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.
