With your Sony Alpha a6000 camera in Fantasea's FA6000 Underwater Housing, you can capture 24MP photos and Full HD video of pygmy seahorses and coral reefs at depths as great as 200'. The enclosure features a moisture detector and alarm that will alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal, so you can dive with peace of mind.

Dual fiber-optic ports enable the attachment of optional external strobes via the proper cables. One of these flash units could be placed on the cold shoe mount that sits atop the housing. Additionally, the FA6000 is equipped with an M16 port that allows for the installation of optional accessories and connectors, such as strobe bulkheads, HDMI video ports, or vacuum valves. The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via mechanical controls, including push-buttons, dials, and a lever. Built for durability, it is constructed from injection-molded polycarbonate that's resistant to shock and corrosion.

The FA6000 ships without a required lens port, and accepts interchangeable ports for various lenses. For full compatibility details, see the port chart.

 

Construction Details
  • Depth rating: 200'
  • Double O-ring seal
  • Secure locking dial on the side
  • Moisture detector and alarm alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal
  • Optional vacuum valve can be installed to help you confirm watertight integrity before diving

  • M16 port allows for the installation of optional accessories and connectors, such as strobe bulkheads, HDMI video ports, or vacuum valves
Strobe Connection and Operation
  • Use of an optional external strobe is highly recommended for color correction and adequate brightness, and basically essential once you descend deeper than 15-20' underwater
  • Strobe restores hues that get absorbed by the water, so your images are vibrant and accurate
  • Try to stay no more than 3-4' away from your subject to preserve natural colors in images
  • Dual fiber-optic ports on the housing enable the attachment of optional external strobes via the proper cables
  • Optional bulkhead added via the M16 port will make it possible to connect external strobes via sync cords
  • Advantages of the hardwired sync cord method include conservation of battery life, since the camera's flash will no longer need to fire, and improved reliability
