Hi I am looking for recommendations for a housing for my 6D. I have been using an Olympus 5050, 7070 and 8080 with varying degrees of success. The slow auto focus means it's pretty much hit and miss. I have owned a Panasonic GH2 and loved it but never brought it underwater and have recently upgraded to a Canon 6D. I also have a Ricoh GRD IV to carry around everyday.
I am looking for an alternative to the Olympus cameras. They are too slow and I was looking to get something with faster AF, bigger sensor, RAW output, 1080p video and an inexpensive housing. So far as I can tell my options are:
Get a new camera and housing on the cheap i.e Sony A6300, Olympus E-PL5
Get a housing for a camera I already own i.e. 6D, GH2 or GRD IV
I was looking at trying to get a housing for the GRD IV and GH2. I saw one for the GRD and it was 600 euro. I have yet to find one for the GH2 and well the 6D is about 1600 euro for an Ikeliite housing.
I then had a look at a Sony A6300 and Meikon housing. I'd prefer the Ikelite but Meikon is so cheap. This setup could be as cheap as 1000 with a lens.
If money was no object then I would just get the Ikelite housing for the Canon 6D. No questions asked. Best image quality, already own the camera. I use the camera most days so I know the ins and outs. I have lenses for it.
Should I get the Ikelite for the 6D. I don't want to buy it if I don't use it much. It is alot of money for something that might not get used an awful lot. Any suggestions?
