Re: Anyone used DiCAPac underwater housing for DSLR?

Once upon a time I had a similar housing:
I had the U-AX type.

My experience is, that these kind of housings are quite usefull for outdoor sports such as kayaking, rafting, snorkeling, but not, repeat not for (scuba)diving.

The problem is that when diving beyond lets say 5 meters/15 feet, water pressure increase on the housing, sometimes pressing all buttons at once, but also making it almost impossible to operate the buttons on the camera (or lens).

I took my housing down up to about 15 meters/45 feet and was unable to operate even the shutter button.
Camera stayed absolutely dry though...
I eventually sold my set to a kayaker...

Good luck!
