Fantasea has announced the launch of its new FRX100 V Housing, an underwater housing unit designed for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III/IV/V cameras. The housing offers protection from water, as well as elemental nuisances like sand and dust, and is rated for depths as low as 60m / 200ft. In addition to being shock-resistant and durable thanks to its injection-molded polycarbonate shell, the housing features a double O-ring seal, support for lighting accessories, and a removable anti-glare hood for using the camera’s LCD.
FRX100 V Housing users are able to access all of the Sony camera’s functions and controls, according to Fantasea, which says they are all ‘clearly marked’ on the housing. A special mount is included for attaching lighting accessories, and there’s also removable connection point for a double fiber optic cable. Operators have access to a dedicated video control button, and there’s likewise a removable flash diffuser.
Fantasea states that each underwater housing unit is equipped with a Moisture Detector installed inside, as well as a port cover and hand strap. The housing is available to purchase from Fantasea now for $530.
