Salty Surf Housings BASIC a6000 housing video review

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.

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 ben@learningsurfphotography.com.

Salty Surf Housings BASIC housing and DIY flash setup

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.

  1. Hey there Ben, I would like to ask, could I fit my Samyang 14 mm F 2.8 in that housing with the dome? Thank you!

    1. HI Carlos,

      I’m not familiar with the Samyang 14mm f2.8, but I can see two versions on line, one is an older one for Canon, Nikon and Sony a mount which I guess you might be using with an adapter on a Sony a6000, and one is brand new e-mount version.

      I’m assuming you’ve got the new one. I don’t think it will fit in the smallest 4″ dome port that I’ve used, it’s a pretty close fot for the Samyang 8mm fisheye and that’s quite a bit smaller than the 14mm.

      I do think it would fit in one of the bigger dome ports that Salty offer though. I would get in touch with Salty themselves to confirm, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it fit in the 6″ dome (they do a bigger dome again if it doesn’t, but I think the 6″ would be fine).
