Sony Introduces Underwater Photo Accessories

By June 12, 2009

Follow me on:

For those looking to try underwater photography, Sony has introduced marine packs for some of its W series and T series Cyber-shot digital cameras.

The MPK-WE marine pack (about $135-$200, Compare Prices) works with W series Cyber-shot models, while the MPK-THH and MPK-THGB marine packs (about $155-$230, Compare Prices) work with T series models. The marine packs offer waterproof protection up to 132 feet.

In addition, Sony has introduced sports packs that allow underwater photography up to about 10 feet in depth. The SPK-WB sports pack (Compare Prices) works with the Cyber-shot DSC-W290, while the APK-WB (pictured here, Compare Prices) and the APK-THAB work with certain W and T series Cyber-shot models. The sports packs cost between $60 and $100.

Just make sure the Cyber-shot model of camera you own matches the underwater housing you want to buy.
