In Topic: Subal vs. Ikelite housing

Only if you believe Austria is part of Germany!



At the risk of hijacking this thread - apologies, Mustafa - I'd honestly never heard of "MBZ" and only now found out it's Mercedes Benz when I looked up "MBZ Austria". It must be a cultural thing. Or perhaps I grew up in the wrong neighbourhood.  I even looked up MBZ and, interestingly got "Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan" of Abu Dhabi or the code for an airport in Brazil! 


Hey ho.


Anyway, more importantly, Bill makes a good point. Perhaps the discussion should be between aluminium housings (or to avoid another hijacking aluminum/aluminium) and polycarbonate ones......


Back to you, Mustafa.....

I think that youve now moved into Subal vs. Nauticam territory...

Having dove with both Ikelite and Subal housings, I would offer the following.


Compare a VW to a MBZ: both will get you to the destination, it just depends on how you want to travel!




Is an MBZ like a BMW?

Hahaha! I do have a weakness for cheese
I am currently using a Canon 6D. And in all honesty have not tried a Subal before, but have seen others use it, and i will concede it did look very solid in terms of build quality

If you’ve not tried a Subal I’d suggest it’s definitely worth having a go. If you’re anywhere near Reef Photo in FL or Backscatter I’m sure they’d help.
