Nauticam's great underwater housing for the Sony NEX-6 camera offers full control of the camera, including control of all 3 control wheels.
The 16 megapixel Sony NEX-6 is a top of the line mirrorless camera, with a sensor the same size as a Nikon D300 or D7000. The video capabilities of this camera is incredible! For a less expensive option, consider the Nauticam SONY NEX-5R housing.
The big news on the NEX-6 is the inclusion of the NEX-7’s excellent OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF) – a welcome tool for those used to DSLR shooting. The new NEX also carries much of the NEX-7’s form factor and a bright 3.0” LCD display. Particularly notable is the new exposure mode dial – a first for this line of cameras. The camera also provides a control dial, control wheel and a programmable function button that allows plenty of direct access functionality. The control dials allow instant control of aperture, shutter speed or other functions depending on the camera’s exposure mode - greatly aiding settings adjustment. The function button allows the shooter to select between autofocus modes, white balance, AF/MF, picture effects and can be programmed with numerous other possibilities. Likewise the AEL button can be programmed for many of the same options including MF assist, giving the photographer maximum customizable choices.
The Sony NEX-6 usually comes with a nice collapsible 16-50mm kit lens.

Had to take a little time to share what I thought about this housing! It was released just in time for my trip to Belize and I was happy to make the switch from my old Canon/Ikelite rig and start shooting the Sony NEX-6. Now that I've upgraded to an aluminum housing I'll never go back. I was impressed that they could design access to all the features of the NEX-6 into such a small housing. It was a pleasure to travel with taking up so little space. I had room in my pelican case carry on for the 18-55mm lens, flat port, Sea and Sea YS-D1, Solo Dive 800 light, chargers, and my dive computer. Opening the housing to swap batteries and SD cards was a breeze. Cycling through the camera features was effortless and the picture quality was great. I didn't need them in the Caribbean but my guess is that even with 5mm gloves on most features would be easy enough to operate. The TTL features worked great, actually the only real exposure issues were due to my playing with the manual controls. All in all I'd say this housing is a solid 9 out of 10. I just hope that ports will keep coming out for the growing line up of lenses being developed for the NEX cameras.
