With the eminent arrival of the TG6 and the PT-059 UW housing, I am asking divers who currently own the TG5 & PT-058 for comments on how they like the camera/housing.
Also, are you considering upgrading to the TG6 (I read both cameras fit in either housing)?
I'm a long-time Canon person, but my G16 with Ikelite housing, strobe & video light are quite bulky. Compared to my buddy's more compact Canon, the G16 & housing is "huge". Not huge compared to Nauticam DLSR housing huge, but certainly big enough to offer considerable drag when scootering to a far dive site.
I'm seriously connsidering the Olympus TG6 when it comes out, as the camera & housing are around $1000 CDN, which is typical for any compact camera & housing. Together they look to be a LOT smaller than the Ikelite G16 housing, which is what I'm after.
But not being an Olympus person, I just don't know the camera at all. Hence my question.
Thanks in advance.
