Underwater housing manufacturer, Nauticam, has introduced an underwater housing for the lightweight and compact Sony RX100 VI.
While the pocket-sized camera is clearly ideal for travel, the NA-RX100 VI housing is just as practical. Weighing 2.3 pounds (1.05 kilograms), you'll be happy to hear the system will take up very little space and weight in your carry-on or checked baggage.
If you like deep dives, the underwater housing can be taken to a depth of 380 feet (100 meters). It’s a nice selling point, but how many divers go to such depths? The housing ships with a standard interchangeable port, which was not found on earlier versions of the Sony RX100 underwater housing line. The standard port allows use of the full zoom range — up to 200mm — and can be equipped with the M67 Flip Diopter Holder, which allows photographers to add the SMC-1 Super Macro Converter for shooting the tiniest ocean critters.
Other ports are also available. For example, the interchangeable N50 Port System allows users to either attach a Compact Macro Converter or a Wet Wide Lens to the housing and are both interchangeable underwater.
It’s always nice to be reassured your system doesn’t have any leaks, so for peace of mind the housing comes equipped with an integrated vacuum check and leak detection system. Nauticam has also included a set of stainless steel handle brackets and a mechanical shutter release trigger extension for those that use thick gloves while in cold water. And as always, a variety of accessories are available.
The new NA-RX100 VI is priced at $1,100 and is available to order now through the Nauticam website.
