Camera and UW Housing Which One?

Im looking to buy a digital camera with an underwater housing. Any suggestions as Im lost in the choices. The camera will be used for fishing photos only. Would like a macro. And a reasonable amount of zoom Thanks in advance

Re: Camera and UW Housing Which One?...

Im looking to buy a digital camera with an underwater housing.

as the Pentax or Olympus models. They are a lot smaller and more convenient than a camera with a UW-housing.

I would like to go with an UW housing so I can take UW shots or partial UW shots Martin. I just dropped my camera in the drink and its done. It just heats up now when I turn it on. That Grayling photo I posted is the cameras last :cry: If I go with an UW housing Im safe all the way around. Is there a digital camera that you would reccomend for an overall good camera. I have found a website for UW housings here in the UK. Just punch in the make and model of camera and if theres a housing for it, it comes up. Ill be looking for one with a low depth rating ie 30 metres or so. I think Ill stay away from the full blown UW housings from the likes of ikelite. Any camera suggestions would be great. Throw a few at me and Ill do some research. Thanks

I was looking at the Canon A95. What do you think? I agree with you(as in your article) that the flip out screen is good for taking high and low shots. I have also found a housing for it for a reasonable price

e A series from Canon. But the most recent is called A650 and A670 as far as I know. The A670 is a sweet little camera with the flip-out display, 7 Mpixels and some really nice features. A better choice than the discontinued 5 Mpixel A95 in my eyes. And the housing ought to be about the same size (and price?).

I recently went for the Canon IXUS 55 with corresponding underwater housing. The housing allows you to take pictures up to 3 m. under the water surface. Both camera and the housing are great quality.

I bought the A 620 with the WP-DC 90 housing. Its working great. Check out some of the UW photos in my gallery on this site.
