Many Times we have seen customers wait and wait before finally breaking down to buy their Dream Underwater Housing. I have done it myself. For Years I Craved a DSLR that was Functional as a Video Camera in Lowlight Conditions.
The Underwater Environment in California is usually more Challenging to shoot because of suspended particles in the water.
Diminished Visibility usually means lower light penetration and diffusion.
I had my eye on the Original Sony A7s Model for that very reason. It's Lowlight Performance was getting Rave Reviews from the likes of famous photo bloggers like Phillip Bloom. Many Underwater Housings were being developed for this model as it was finally the answer for us divers.
Finally I made my Purchase and was feeling happy about my choice however I did find a few things that i wished I had known before I bought my housing.
These issues weren't major and overall I would say i did it right but I should have taken out a rental housing to make my decision final. I tend to buy and sell a lot of Camera gear as it is my main addiction.
