Press Release

True Sony TTL Exposure Proper strobe exposure is a matter of microseconds, which doesn’t leave much time to communicate between the camera and an external strobe. We are the only manufacturer that provides camera-specific TTL encoding for automatic exposure fine-tuned to the a7, a7R, and a7S’s sophisticated flash exposure protocol.

Slide-in, Front Loading Camera The new camera mounting tray makes this housing a breeze to set up and shoot.


Controls at a Glance Rear pushbutton controls are laser engraved to represent the corresponding function of the camera.

Construction The polycarbonate and acrylic materials used to create this housing are inherently corrosion-proof, which is ideal for harsh saltwater environments. Their transparent properties offer a clear view of the sealing surfaces and camera itself for added assurance.
