I have used the housing for the Olympus TG4, and it has worked well, except it tends to fog.  Now I am considering the Olympus TG5 camera, for which two housings are available: Olympus and Ikelite..

 

Which of the two is a better housing in terms of ease of use, water tight seal and fogging ?

Thank you for your expert opinion.

Hi,
have a look for the new uwpmag.com
Phil Rudin has done a review on the Ikelite housing.

Regards,
Wolfgang

I'd go with the Nauticam.

Thank you for the prompt and expert advice, I much appreciate it.   I just got the Ikelite housing and camera and look forward to enjoying it in the Philippines next month.
