Sea & Sea Announces Housing for Sony a6300
By Joseph Tepper, August 10, 2016 @ 12:54 PM (EST)

Sea & Sea has just released a formal announcement regarding their housing for the Sony a6300.

The Sea & Sea MDX-A6300 is the latest housing for one of the year’s most desirable mirrorless cameras. Among the new features, a few stand out. First, the housing features two bulkhead ports that can be used either as standard sync cables or to connect a video monitor or a vacuum leak system.

Another DSLR-like feature on the housing is the inclusion of an external port lock and release. With this, you can swap lenses and ports between dives without the hassle of removing the housing’s back. Finally, the housing provides access to the camera’s tilting LCD screen for easier viewing from low angles.

The housing is currently available with a price tag of $1799.95. For more information, consult the press release below.
