Good camera, bad housingDec 31, 2008
By Boaz Meiri
I have used this camera & housing 5 times. Good quality photos but housing tends to flood. I had it flooded on the second use. Sea & Sea decided that there is nothing wrong with it and wouldn't honor the warranty. I had the housing serviced and cleaned up by Sea & Sea, bought the camera separately and used it with the same housing 2 more times before it got flooded again. It is easy to see how it doesn't seal properly. I use another housing so I'm well familiar with setting up the o-ring and maintaining it.

great camera for underwater and landJan 07, 2010
By John Michael Wells
I have used this camera and housing on dozens of dives up to 130 feet and have never had a problem with flooding or even leaking. The housing allows you to control all of the camera functions underwater, giving you the flexibility to change setting with the changing underwater environment or your desired picture type. One of the best features is the ability to set two separate user-defined modes; this alows you to quickly changes multiple setting with just one dial adjustement. The picture quality is excellent for a camera this small. This system allows you to set the camera to pre-set modes for the beginner or to individually adjust all the settings for the more advanced photographer. This is obviously not an underwater SLR for professional photographers, but it has more adjustable settings than any other comparable camera I have seen. I was particularly impressed with the low-light picture quality and the ability to take pictures directly into a bright light source. Previous digital cameras I have used performed very poorly in these situations. For underwater use, you have to use a separate strobe to get good pictures with bright colors. The built-in flash is used to trigger the strobe through a fiberoptic cable. The only negative I would point out is that you cannot open the pop-up flash once the camera is in the housing. That means that if you forget to open the pop-up flash before you dive, as is did once, your strobe will not work. Outside the housing, this camera is small enough to take anywhere. I now use this camera exclusively for above and below water photography. This camera also records decent quality video with sound, above and below water.
