Ikelite Underwater Housing for Sony RX-100VI (6116.18)

This sophisticated housing for the Sony RX-100VI provides everything you need to get creative with this powerful compact camera!

Sony's 2018 model in the huge RX100 series sports an extended, 24-200mm f/2.8-4.5 zoom lens with enhanced image stabilization. Having a longer zoom reach compared to previous RX100 models makes this a great choice for overall travel photography.

A large 20MP 1" sensor and incredibly fast autofocus make for great images above and below the surface... plus stunning 4K UHD video recording all in one very compact body.

Ergronomics

A new slide-in, front loading camera mounting tray makes this housing a breeze to set up and shoot. Controls are provided for all important camera functions including a re-designed, spring loaded rear dial control. Rear push button controls are laser engraved for identification with a new bright red push button for the video record start/stop. A sensitive shutter lever makes it easy to half-depress the trigger for focusing and metering.

Use the camera's built-in WiFi feature to download photos to another device without removing the camera from the housing. The WiFi feature is only usable above water within close proximity to the connected device.

Construction

There's no greater assurance than being able to see the o-ring seal. Simply close the two double-passivated stainless steel locking lid snaps, and see the o-ring form a solid black, watertight seal.

Ikelite products are designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.

Flash

Due to the position of the camera's flash in relation to its lens, the built-in flash is not suitable to illuminate photos under water. For the best color and clarity, we recommend adding a filter, strobe, or constant-on light. The built-in flash may be used to trigger external strobes via fiber optic sync cord. Two ports are provided for the connection of up to two fiber optic cords. The Ikelite AF35 strobe is not compatible with this housing.

Wide Angle, Macro & Filters

The standard 3.9" diameter optical glass port accommodates the camera's full 24-200mm zoom range underwater.

Add the press-fit Macro Adapter #9306.82 with any 67mm threaded macro wet lens for incredibly super macro photography. Compatible wet lenses include but are not limited to the Kraken KRL-03, Saga close up lenses, Nauticam CMC-1, and others.

The optional WD-4 Wide Angle Dome #6430.4 provides a wider angle of view underwater without the edge distortion, vignetting, or weight typically associated with an external wide angle wet lens. The WD-4 is a 0.75x magnification factor and simply slides on and off of the housing's lens port.

Optional wide angle port

The optional Wide Angle Port M67 for Sony RX100 VI #9306.02 can be used in place of the housing's standard port for use of 67mm threaded external wide angle wet lenses. This port has been optimized to provide the best combination of wide angle and macro photography. The shorter port length accommodates an effective zoom range of 24-70mm.

This port is optimized for use with wide angle wet lenses designed for the 28mm equivalent focal length, including the Kraken KRL-01, Nauticam WWL-1, and others.  Some vignetting (dark shadows around the edges of the image will be present at wider focal lengths. We recommend zooming to eliminate vignetting or cropping your images in post-production.

The front of the port also accepts 67mm threaded macro wet lenses by Kraken, Saga, Nauticam, and others.

Camera Compatibility

Older RX100 Mark I, II, III, IV, and V cameras are not usable in this housing due to differences in lens and control placement. The Sony AG-R2 Attachment Grip is not compatible with this product.
