    Sea & Sea make some beautiful housings. Have a look at some of my images on

    Why would anyone buy a D600 for underwater photos? When including the housing, the price difference to the D800 is small.

    Why the hell do those housings price so high ? I mean, even if the materials are great, they are just assembled plastic & rubber parts ! If the housing cost about 1/3 of the camera price, loads of people would buy them.

      because they must withstand a lot of pressure. on 100m, the pressure is 11bar (11x the surface pressure). those housings have a lot of knobs and buttons routed to the outside – and each of them has to be fully sealed in addition to the main seal (for the opening through which you insert/remove the camera). also, with DSLR housing you attach another housing for the lens (a so called ‘port’) which also needs to be fully sealed.

      then, the housing needs to be light enough to be transported easily but hard enough to withstand quite some bashing (think cave diving with a lot of current and zero visibility (silt out)). oh… and then you also need to be able to see the display and also through the viewfinder.

      and the 100m rating is the ‘safe’ rating. crush-depth will be a lot deeper (as they don’t want to get sued) – i guess it’ll be more like 150-200m. I’ve been to 60m w/ a housing rated to 40m (actually i forgot to leave the camera on the boat for that dive and on 60m i was like ‘oh shit, my camera!’… but it was alright).

      are they worth a lot of money? i don’t know. but i do know, that if i put a DSLR in such a situation i would prefer to pay i little more upfront and then have peace of mind on the dive and can actually take my time to look around and not check the housing for leaks every 30sec.

      disclaimer: i do not own a DSLR housing but ‘just’ a housing for a P&S (Canon S95 if anyone wants to know…), but it’s about the same (the housing cost about the same as the camera).
