In Topic: Patima Housings?

22 May 2006 - 09:37 AM

OK, got to see the Patima EHC-350DX housing for the Canon 350DX in person today at my local LDS.


Hi Pakman, thank you for your report.
I think that I will buy another housing, and probably a Hugyfot.
I was wondering on Patima for its 100m deep range, but I will prefer to change as its deep range, compared with hugy, mainly does not compensate:
1) an european product, so it is easier for mnaitance/problems to contact, ship, ....... with respect to korea.
2) A wide range of ports, and probably made of similar quality

I am not confident with sea&sea for his rear port... I do not like rear material .... I experienced an implosion with it and I prefer a totally alluminium housing (as Patima and Hugy).

Hugy is declared to operate up to 80m..... probably as deep I will use as hard will be to set options,....... deeper that 80m.... I hope!


Thank you to everybody

I would go for the Sea&Sea for around 1100€. I think it has a really good combination of quality and price. You can even buy the model with TTL for sea&sea strobes (or get Mathias´device for other brands..). I have an ordered Hugy for my D200 but my second choice (and I don´t know why not the first...) is the sea&sea...

Thank you for your post.
Personally, I am interested in alluminium housings, as I am used for deep dives.
Housing matirials different from alluminium do not met my interest as I have already experienced unhappy implosions :P :D


The sea&sea, if I well remember, has a non-alluminium rear-cap that do not take me confident with it.

Hello Umbro, 
thanks for your council. 
I do not try the resistance in depth but the emergency of good operation and eventual European guarantee. 
You can to indicate eventual link to me in Italy for Patima and Hugyfot? 
Thanks.  :D  :P

Emergency/Mainentance is really the crucial point.
Concerning guarantee, is less important, as in many cases it is very hard to demonstrate that it is not your fault!

In any case, Italian Patima distributor is
Leone Company
Tel: +39-011-720-75406
Corso Francia 286, 10146 Turin Italy
Email: Leone [info@fotoleonesub.com]

They reply quickly to your information request.

For Hugyfot I contact directly the company, that is the same of Green-Force products, but I cannot exclude that they have italian dealers, too.

Ciao
