It is Meikon

OK, I've found the brand behind it. Guess what - it is Meikon. More precisely, it is Meikon-42. On the housing picture that shows the locking mechanism, there is a MeiKon logo on the inside of the big black plastic lock.
The same brand also goes as Meike.
So, that solved, I found enough info in forums here to draw a conclusion that it is probably the same quality as the original Olympus PT-022 housing I'm using for my old C-770 for ... 8 years! Likely the same quality as all "original" polycarbonate housings like Cannon, Panasonic etc.
Now I have to find the cheapest option to get one.

Beside that, after staring at the housing pictures I've found that it is missing something I found very valuable on my PT-022 - the lever that pushes the pop-up flash back in. Now, that is not a specific to this housing though - all of the RX100 housings simply miss that!! Correct me if I'm wrong.

With that problem in mind, is it possible to disable flash on RX100 when it is in pop-up position?
