<font color='#000080'>Hi,

I have just got a new camera (Canon EOS 10D) and wonder what would be the best option for housings? Who makes good robust housings that would be ok for use in the UK?

Cheers.

Mark.

<font color='#0000FF'>Hi Mark,

Try this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/uwvideo/ it's a list for video cameras and photo cameras. I think I would look for is also it's depth rating, here many use Ikilite housings, with good results but cannot help you first hand.

Regards

Pierre

My top pick would be Seacam (cause I'm a Seacam user myself), but as far as I know they do not make a housing for D10 yet. You may want to give Subal (http://www.subal.de/), UK Germany (http://www.uk-germany.com/) or Hugyfot (http://www.hugyfot.de/) a closer look. I have no personal experience of any but friends of mine use both Hugyfot and Subal. It is probably down to money and preference what to chose. Subal is readily available in the UK through Ocean Optics in London. Hugyfot is used by some of the world's top photographers (e.g. Franco Banfi) and they also made housings for Hasselblad in the seventies. Their ports are reasonably priced, something to consider. I also like their ergonomics, but again, that is down to personal preference.
Good luck!
Anders
