NEX-5 & 5N Underwater II

Looks like we reached the the 150 post limit on the original thread so after searching for others i thought I would start a new one. The last post in the previous thread was

To answer that question I can say yes it does appear that the play and record arm have been modified. The next question you have to ask yourself is if its worth $100 more dollars for that feature when you can buy the $85 case and do the mod in 5 minutes.

After using the original case on several dives I can tell you it was OK to good (not great) so as nothing else has probably changed you should expect the same results. There are lots of little annoyances about the case but trying to make sure all the buttons work both on the surface and at depth is a bit of a pain. I could never get the dial wheel to work as easily and reliably as i wanted. Now with all that said at $85 (compared to $1500 fora Nauticam setup) the case is a great value because the camera and picture quality are off the charts.

The link below are a few shots I took with the NEX-5N on my first 3 underwater dives. For a photo rookie with an under $700 setup these should give you an idea what this camera is capable of. http://s1155.photobucket.com/albums/p553/dannyhightower/Cozumel%20Best/?albumview=slideshow
