Camera Housing 3.0

Fully waterproof (beyond IP68) water housing designed for surf photography and underwater photography based around reliability, simplicity, and a small package.


Abstract

Based around the small package of the Sony A6500, housing 3.0 is more reliable with CNC cut o-ring grooves while increasing ergonomics during use. The dual electrical lever switches allow for an improved tactile feel with both a half (focus) and full (shutter) button press. After building and operating two camera housings over the last few years, camera housing 3.0 is a platform that brings the best of both along with emphasis from the surf photography user perspective.

While the camera housing is operational, work is being done to bring the project into a collaborative space. Stay tuned, or email me at schmidaustin@gmail.com
