Underwater Photography

Postby BCflyfisher2012 » Thu May 19, 2011 12:59 pm

Just got into SCUBA diving back in Jan while in India and had a point and shoot in a housing down with me. Has anyone had experience with underwater housings for SLRs? I am looking into purchasing one but am hoping to hear some pros/cons before making my final decision.

thanks!

most of the bodies i have seen and would trust for slrs and dslrs are very expensive--1500.00 is the cheapest i have found and would trust---hopefully someone knows better and has a better sloution

Agree with Horsley. If you are going to SCUBA with an SLR the quality bodies are very expensive. If you will stay shallow you can use a ewa marine case. I used one in the past and it never leaked. There is no view finder in a GoPro but they can be used down to around 200 feet.
