Ikelite 6911.64 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Sony Alpha A6300, A6400, A6500 Mirrorless Camera
The Ikelite 6911.64 200DLM/A Underwater Housing is the perfect companion allowing use of the Sony Alpha A6300, A6400, or A6500 mirrorless cameras in or around the water for scuba, snorkeling, surf, pool, or any adventure.
The camera mount is front-loading for easy installation and removal. A small mounting plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and secures in the front of the housing. The camera mounting plate does not need to be removed from the camera for surface use or when changing the battery or memory cards. The mounting plate features a 1/4-20 threaded mount on the bottom so that it can be attached to a tripod on the surface.
A spare 1/2-20 threaded accessory port is provided on the side of the housing for easily installation of the optional Vacuum Kit # 47012. A vacuum kit allows you to draw a vacuum on the housing to check for leaks prior to entering the water. Drawing a vacuum on the system also provides extra security at the surface of the water, especially important when using the housing in rough surf.
For the best results, we recommend adding an external flash or high-powered constant-on light if you’ll be diving regularly below 15′ (3m).
This housing supports your choice of shooting strobes by electrical sync cord or fiber optic triggering.
You can enjoy the fastest and most accurate TTL exposure on the market by adding the DL2 DS Link Sony TTL Converter Ikelite ST1 Hotshoe and B1A Bulkhead Kit # 46045 and a compatible Ikelite DS strobe. Exposure compensation may be used added or subtracted in the camera. Reliable locking connectors between the hotshoe and bulkhead make it easy to install the optional TTL electronics or carry back up parts when traveling.
The camera’s built-in flash is suitable for firing an external strobe, but not for lighting a photo underwater. Two fiber optic ports are built into the front of the housing provide an attachment point for fiber optic cords from most major manufacturers.
This Ikelite 6911.64 200DLM/A Underwater Housing for Sony Alpha A6300, A6400, A6500 cameras accepts ports from the DLM Port System to accommodate a selection of the best zoom, macro, and wide angle lenses for underwater use. The custom optical grade acrylic domes components provide the color, clarity, and durability of glass at a fraction of the travel weight and cost.
This housing requires the addition of a compatible DLM Lens Port for waterproof operation. Lens Port not included.
The white ABS-PC blend housing provides strength and corrosion free performance year with minimal maintenance. ABS-PC is lighter than aluminum for convenience during travel and less drag underwater. The specially formulated color deflects the sun to keep your camera running cooler, longer. Compared to black or clear housings, the light color provides superior contrast for enhanced view of the camera, LCD screen, and o-ring seal.

The Sony a6000 camera is very similar in size and configuration. Differences in lens placement prevent the camera from being used interchangeably in the same housing. This housing only accommodates a6300, a6400, and a6500 cameras.
This housing is only compatible with the Sony cameras as shipped by the manufacturer. Unless otherwise noted, this housing does not accommodate the use of add-on grips, battery grips, eyepieces, LCD covers, or other accessories.
