The Nauticam NA-A6500 Housing for Sony A6500 Camera features an integrated handle system. This ergonomic style is well proven on the full frame NA-A7 and NA-A7II housings for Sony Full Frame (FE) cameras. Exceptional control access, even with thick gloves, and ideal placement of the shutter release and AE-L / AF-L buttons at the right handle. Nauticam build quality is well known by underwater photographers around the globe. The housing is machined from a solid block of aluminum, then hard anodized making it impervious to salt water corrosion. Marine grade stainless and plastic parts complete the housing, and it is backed by a two year warranty against manufacturing defects.

The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-A6500 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, an audible and visual indication will occur. A new accessory battery pack has been released along with NA-A6500! This larger capacity battery provides 2.5x the power of a single Sony NP-F50 battery pack, and slides conveniently into the underwater housing below the camera mounting plate.

Features:
  • Integrated Vacuum Monitoring and Leak Detection: Circuitry included as standard equipment provides constant monitoring of water tight integrity when combined with an optional Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve II (PN 25624).
  • Shutter Release Extension: Cold water divers rejoice! The housing has been designed with an oversized paddle style shutter lever, perfectly placed for operation from the integrated handle system.
  • AE-L / AF-L Thumb Lever: A rear thumb lever can be assigned various focus related tasks, such as autofocus on, or autofocus lock. This lever is easily reached while the finger is on the shutter release, and the combination of half press and focus lock functionality puts the user in complete control of the advanced a6500 autofocus system.
  • Patented Port Locking System: Lens ports are securely locked in place with our iconic port locking system. This system was launched on our very first DSLR housing in 2009, and provides effortless port mounting for quick lens swaps without twisting. Lens ports are securly locked in place, and won't twist in the mount even in extreme conditions (like surf).
  • Stainless Steel Handle Brackets: Stiffening handle brakets are included with the housing, providing a solid "wobble free" attachment to the integrated tray and handle system. Multiple lanyard attachment points are included in the brackets.
  • Optional Angled LCD: The camera mounting tray allows the rear LCD screen to be positioned at a 15 deg angle.  This small angle benefits low angle compositions where the camera is below the diver, and is also useful for snorkeling / surface imaging.
  • Battery Pack for NA-6500 Housing (2500mAh, inc. USB cable): A new accessory battery pack has been released along with NA-A6500!  This larger capacity battery provides 2.5x the power of a single Sony NP-F50 battery pack, and slides conveniently into the underwater housing below the camera mounting plate.
  • Viewfinder Options: A clear view for fine focus and composition is critical for successful underwater photography, and nothing beats a magnifying viewfinder. These viewfinders use distance, not closeup vision, and provide a large, clear view of the high resolution Sony electronic viewfinder. Available in angled 45º (PN 32205) and Straight (PN 32204) formats, both viewfinders have external dioptric adjustments for dialing in perfect correction matched to the photographer's eyesight.
  • Integrated Vacuum Check and Leak Detection System: The Nauticam vacuum check and leak detection system is available with NA-A6500 as standard equipment. Combined with an optional vacuum valve (PN 25624), this monitoring system provides constant updates on the water tight and safe-to-dive status of the housing. A simple coded LED lighting system lets the user know that the vacuum is solid, or that the housing is losing vacuum. Leak detection is built into the same circuit, so if there is water intrusion, an audible and visual indication will occur.
  • Flash Connectors for Inon S-TTL, Sea & Sea DS-TTL: Reliable automatic flash exposure is available with the NA-A6500 and a variety of optically fired flashes. The Inon Z-240, D-2000, S-2000, and Sea & Sea YS-D1/YS-D2 strobes provide automated lighting, precisely reproducing the camera’s onboard flash at a proportionally greater intensity. This system yields accurate automatic TTL flash performance – even in manual mode - with no electrical sync cables to flood! The NA-A6500 comes fiber optic ready and accepts standard Sea & Sea style bushing connections. Nauticam Fiber Optic cables, available for both Inon and Sea & Sea strobes, provide the best light transmission and therefore more accurate TTL of any fiber optic cable on the market. Strobes and light arms can be attached to the housing via included 1" accessory mounting balls. The housing also features a cold-shoe and M10 threaded mount for a focus light or other accessories. Electrical strobe triggering (with power set manually on the flash head) is still an option for those with an investment in legacy lighting gear, requiring the purchase of an accessory electrical bulkhead.
