Oops. Gotta make a small correction to an earlier post above.

I'd described the Recsea RX100 housing's rear D-pad dial as oversensitive, which it indeed is. The D-pad knob is a 4-way rocker, but also rotates to scroll thru values/menu items. Earlier, I said that the rocker part of the mechanism is too easily engaged, especially while trying to rotate the dial. My brain wasn't working and I mixed up my description, getting it in reverse instead.

What I meant was that when using the D-pad as a rocker, it is too easily nudged into an unwanted "rotate" action. For example, if I'm holdng the camera with my right hand, I'd move my right thumb over to try and hit the "left" position of the D-pad, but if my thumb is only slightly mis-positioned on the D-pad dial, the D-pad rotates instead.

In any case, this still isn't a big problem and could be because my hand is smaller than normal. Come Saturday, I'll be diving real dives for the first time with this housing and update this thread
