If you can't find information about a housing on wetpixel's forums, please check out Digideep.com, which is a database of housings for specific cameras.

I was having this problem just the other day - finding out which camera's have underwater housings available.

I found Ikelite's site. Pretty in-depth and very useful to search cameras - both compact and SLR. :) Maybe not the only people who make UWH, but one of the most well-know as far as I know. :uwphotog:

Seems Digideep hasn't been updated for quite some time? For example they still show no housing for the Sony SLT-a55, while Ike's had one for a while, and the camera's almost end-of-lifed with the a65 "teased" already on rumor sites for a formal release around September/October this year.

Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.

 

Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

I've noticed the same thing. Not much coverage, for new mirrorless cams either.
I wish there were a way for us readers to submit info, and help out.

Or I guess doing it as a wiki, would work...
