Fantasea Line Introduces Two New Housings for Sony RX100 III/IV/V/VA Cameras
By DPG Editorial Staff, September 22, 2019 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

Fantasea has unveiled a pair of upgraded housings for the Sony RX100 series—from Mark III to Mark VA. In case you were wondering, the Mark VA is an upgraded Mark V with the same 24–70mm f/1.8–2.8 lens as the Mark III and IV, but with many of the software updates of the Mark VI.

The housings are two configurations of the same robust, full-featured housing that Fantasea has been producing for the RX100 series over the last several years. The “advanced” version includes an integrated Fantasea Hybrid Vacuum Safety System, which features a pre-dive vacuum check as well as a moisture detector. Meanwhile, the “basic” version has an M16 port designed for the Fantasea Hybrid Vacuum Safety System—leaving the choice of whether to install the system to the user.

The housings are available for order now from Fantasea dealers.
