I believe it is called 'EOS-Kiss'(film SLR) in Japan & only UW housing I am aware is one made by INON in Japan & is shown in left end of first line of this picture w/180mm Canon L Micro lens + Inon ring flash. It is VERY light & compact film SLR & makes good picture. You can ask to Yuzo at 'info at naturephoto.co.jp' for
availability. He is on his way back to Japan from DEMA. ( it is same Yuzo at www.uwdigitalcamera.com)

off topic but a quick point:
you probably do not want to be putting an email address in plain text like that on the web, especially somebody else's email. there are too many bots out collecting email addresses for spam....
you may want to write it as xxx at yyy.zzz using "at" with spaces around it instead of the @ sign...
just my two cents :)

Paul, etc.

If I were writing an e-mail harvester bot, I'd properly parse "xxx at yyy.zzz", "xxx at yyy dot com" and every other combo I had ever seen used on the web.

I'd rather write something like "my first name at yyy.zzz" to make the reader use some intelligence to get the right address.

On the front page of WP, we encode email addresses so that it's really difficult to parse.

Personally, my solution is to use a HTML contact page and avoid having my e-mail address available on the web.

indeed, in fact that's the way i'd do it too, but i just wanted to point out that spelling out email addresses on a web page is an invitation to even more spam issues for the owner of the email.

Hi,
I am finding EOS-KissIII was a popular UW camera in Japan few years
ago. Sea&sea also, made UW housing at that time. www.mic21.com ,
one of large Japanese supplier, still carries this housing in web catalog.
