Waterproof housing for Sony A6xxx series Salted Line in details

Posted on May 31 2018

Waterproof housing A6xxx Salted Line was created for surfing photography and scuba diving/underwater photography with Sony A6500/A6300/A6000 cameras. One of the main things that sets this unit apart from all other brands is the price, which is 297$US for a basic unit with standard flat port for Sony 16-50mm & 10-18mm lenses with zoom function available. For this price you get a full access to all camera controls inside waterproof housing that can be used at maximum depth of 60 meters underwater. By adding different accessories such as detachable 2 stage pistol grip (Housing with Pistol Grip bundle 397 $US) you get yourself a unit for surfing photography. Additionally, Dry Dome Port can be added (Housing with Dry Dome Port bundle 482 $US  / Housing with Pistol Grip & Dry Dome Port bundle 582 $US ) which will give you the ability to use many different lenses including wide angle lenses. This makes the unit highly versatile in any water activity known today. 

There are 4 bundles (kits) for sale, but they all share the same body and the only difference between them are different port and whether it has a pistol grip or not. No pistol grip bundles are primarily for diving (underwater photography) and the ones with pistol grip are for surfing photography. Keep in mind that different ports and pistol grip are additional accessories. The reason for having different bundles is choice – some people need more options and instead of buying separately, they can purchase it as a bundle.

By default, waterproof housing comes with flat port. However, there are other ports available for different purposes and no matter which bundle(kit) you choose the default port will always be there.
