I’ve had the Salty Surf Housings BASIC housing for a couple of weeks now and I’ve used it as much as possible.
If you haven’t already seen my unboxing you can watch it here.
Here’s my video review:
A couple of notes that I’ve added as annotations to the YouTube video – but I don’t think you’ll see them if you’re watching on mobile or on this site if it’s embedded:
- The Aquatech ATB housings have a C2 button and the a6300 can be setup to use this as the video record button
- The price of the basic housing has dropped to $1099 AUS
And here’s everything I mentioned in the review, some of them are accessories that you might want to pick up to compliment your Salty Surf Housings BASIC a6000 housing.
- $24 US – Sony RMTDSLR2 Wireless Remote for Alpha & NEX, (Black) – infra red remote control by Sony, to start/stop video record when it’s in the housing
- $8.99 US – JW RM-DSLR2 Wireless Remote Control For Sony A6000 – third party IR remote that has the same controls as the Sony original, I’ve ordered one for more testing
- $8.34 US – JJC RM-S1 Wireless Remote Control For Sony A6000 – minimal lightweight IR remote with just shutter release and video start/stop, might be easier to handle in the water
- Aquatech ATB A6000 and ATB A6300 housings
- OpenMemories Tweak app – remove the 29 minute time restriction and language restrictions using this app
- PMCADemo – sample apps which include remapping button functions – could be a starting point for using the custom button to start video recording
- Flash Surf Photography With The Sony a6000 – Part 1
- $180 US – KNEKT KTP18 pole trigger for a GoPro
If you’ve used one of the more advanced Salty Surf Housing’s let me know in the comments how it’s going or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m going to be doing some more shooting with mine over the weekend and I’ve even splashed out on a new (still budget friendly) flash setup which I’m going to try out.
As always if you’ve got any questions send me an email or add a comment.
