hi

so far I never had problems with ikelite housings and all accessories

once I received the ikelite #6038.25 housing for sony hc-94 camcorder, I
tested only the housing into the water, as usual, and the result was ok, as ever, so far
at the first diving with housing and camcorder, water came in

thanksfully, the camcorder is much probably safe but I noticed little breaks near the closing clips of the housing (see the pics to understand better)

considering that the housing never fell down or was hurted, I don't think that these brEaks were caused by a simple too heavy closing of the clips

can it be a manufaturer's defects?

what do you think?

tks

Could be a stress fracture/hairline cracks. I would just consult with Ikelite.
In boca al lupo.

manufacturer's defect or anything else?

I've seen this before on my friend's Ikelite housing. Not sure if it was for his TRV950 or his HC1. He dived it for ages with the crack and never got a leak. He also got "crazing" (web of shallow cracks) all over his TRV950 Ikelite housing.
