    I have a SeaFrogs housing for my A6000 and don't have any complaints, I've taken it on a couple extended dive trips and it's worked fine. But for my new TG-6 I ended up ordering a PT-058 (new on eBay for $229). It was a hard decision since I own the vacuum pump for the SeaFrogs housing system that their TG housing also uses. But I'm not sure I need to mess with the vacuum pump on the TG-6, if there is a small leak the camera is already waterproof, so I see that as a second line of defense, so unless I don't notice it, I'm not expecting that there would be much chance of damage if it was a small leak that a vacuum system would have caught. The second factor for me was I was looking at the BackScatter AOI UMG-01 LCD Magnifier and it looks like it's set up to use the connection points on the Olympus housing, and I wasn't as sure if it would work on the SeaFrogs or not. So I went with the Olympus this time in case I decide to get the LCD Magnifier.

    Finally got to test drive my TG-6 this past weekend at the Blue Heron Bridge.

    I added a Kraken Hydra 2500 light to my setup paired with my YS03 Strobe. Got some great shots, really pleased with the setup

    My new setup. I have been using a Go Pro Hero 4 and smaller lights on the same camera platform.

    Now I have two Big Blue VL4200P LED lights as well as a new TG6 and housing. I still will use the Hero4 for 2.7k wide video.
    I want to use the TG6 for Super Macro and have setup in C1 C2 two settings I will use mostly. The lights are on swivels and will not be in plane with the camera.

    Going on a 40 dive vacation end of month and will put the TG6 to good use. However after being a single button go pro user lots of RTFM, reading forums, and help from others. A friend I am diving with uses a TG5 so he is waiting to see the TG6 and I can get some good advise from him.

    Good to hear, but I suspect I'll put it to the test once I get to dive my new TG-6 at some point in the (hopefully) not-too-distant future. :rofl3:
