I know there are many people looking for a Sony a6000 Water Housing for surf photography, so I put together a video showing the modifications I’ve made to my Aquatech CR-60 housing which allow me to use my Sony a6000 camera body and all my lenses inside.
Although this process was specifically for the CR-60 housing you’re going to be able to use these instructions to adapt pretty much any surf housing designed for a DSLR style camera to create a Sony a6000 water housing.
If you need to know if your old housing will match up to your new camera I recommend the excellent Camersize.com website, it will allow you to put the two cameras side by side at the same scale, the dimensions are listed with them and you can easily see if the controls match up with the different angles offered for each camera.
What do you need?
- Any DSLR water housing designed for surf photography, I used my Aquatech CR-60 water housing
- DSLRkit Canon to Sony terminal converter cable (Nikon to Sony should also be possible by using two adapters, see page 3 for details)
- PU-60 Arca Swiss style quick release plate
- Longer than usual tripod screw
- Self adhesive foam pads
