Fantasea Announces Compatibility of Housing with New Sony RX100 VA
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, November 28, 2018 @ 10:00 PM (EST)

Fantasea has confirmed that its housing for the Sony RX100 V is also compatible with the newly upgraded version of the camera, the Sony RX100 VA. The FRX100 V housing is also compatible with the Mark III and Mark IV, but not the Mark VI, due to its longer-range zoom lens. (Fantasea makes a special “limited edition” version of their housing specifically for the RX100 VI.)

The Sony RX100 VA gained a faster processor and various firmware tweaks, giving the camera Sony’s new and improved menu system, a deeper buffer, new auto white balance choices, and more.
