Fantasea Announces Compatibility of Housing with New Sony RX100 VII
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, September 26, 2019 @ 08:00 PM (EST)

Fantasea has confirmed that its housing for the Sony RX100 VI is also compatible with the newly upgraded version of the camera, the Sony RX100 VII. The FRX100 VI Limited Edition housing isn’t compatible with the Mark III, IV, V, or VA, which have a shorter-range zoom lens—Fantasea has just released an updated housing, in two different configurations, for those cameras.

The Sony RX100 VII gained a new 1-inch-type stacked-CMOS sensor, the new Real-time Tracking and Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals, faster 0.02-second focus acquisition speed, and improved image stabilization—among other things.

See the press release below for more details.
