Default underwater housing

I would like to buy an underwater housing for my Sony DSC-P92 digital
camera relatively soon. Does anyone know of a good underwater housing
for it?

Ikelite is the industry standard for u/w housings, however they do not list
a housing for the model which you gave. Go to Ikelite.com & poke around for
customer service. They might be able to give you a number of housing that
is compatible.

BTW, they are COSTLY. Though less expensive, I really wouldn't trust an EWA
housing as it is little more than a zip-loc bag. My Ikelite gave me a great
deal of service with no problems.

Happy Diving

My Ewa bag works just fine. Snap the flash on the D1X,
put in the bag add 1kg weight a silicagel sachet, close the
bag, and dive up to 60 meters, I've only tested to 30 meters.
The Ewa weighs less than 1kg and takes no space, I love it.

Ikelite are just one manufacturer of underwater housings for cameras,
there are plenty others, some much better than Ikelite (IMO).

Have a look at http://www.digideep.com/ and http://www.wetpixel.com/
for lots of information & reviews of various housings, etc.

If you are in the UK, http://www.camerasunderwater.co.uk/ is a shop worth
a look.

Safe diving!

Gordon
