Seacam has announced, via Facebook, its latest Silver housing—for the Sony Alpha 1 full-frame mirrorless camera. Boasting a 50MP stacked CMOS sensor and dual Bionz XR processors, the a1 can capture 8K/30p and 4K/120p video—only the second full-frame mirrorless camera, after the Canon EOS R5, capable of doing so.
According to Seacam, the housing allows users to access “all available functions” of the camera and has a “very compact size”—250 x 160 x 120mm (9.8 x 6.3 x 4.7in), excluding port, viewfinder and handles. The housing weighs in at 1810g (4lbs), with port and viewfinder, and is roughly neutral underwater, depending on the configuration. It is compatible with Seacam’s standard ports.
The housing has four bulkheads for connecting accessories such as strobes, vacuum pump, and monitor/recorder, and both S6-style and fiber-optic strobe triggering are possible. The housing is depth-rated to 80m (260 feet), and a deep version is also available.
Pricing and availability haven’t been given, so keep an eye on listings at retailers such as Backscatter.
