Either or both would be nice. I would use the good to 20' model for my caving, kayaking and beach camera. The other one for scuba diving. Then again for scuba diving a large water-proof housing is pretty easy to use. For my other uses size is a problem and a water-proof housing is too large.


Same for me - I want basically a tough take anywhere in any weather camera for people who are not necessarily planning on diving but may expose camera to splashes or an accidental dunk in water. A big example in in sport fishing photography is that now a lot of mainstream articles include shots of fish in water, usually with camera only a foot or so under the surface:

A very common type of fishing shot taken at "elbow" depth
