Are you sure with the D30 you mentioned, or is it a slipup and do you mean EOS 30 D

All the housings will keep your camera dry to 40 m.

So 30D :-) nice, I use a 20D in an ikelite housing.

Any housing can flood. Flooding a housing is mostly because of user error. I got ater in (an older) housing once, because i rushed putting the O ring in (it twisted a bit). But I saw the housing being a bit wet, because it was a see through ikelite housing.

Another instance I remember is a guy on shore drying his new hugyphot housiing that had a small leakage. Camera was still fine, but he wondered very much what it was. In a housing like that, a leak alert will save your camera (but not your dive)

I managed to flood a strobe partly (I left the battery compartment open, since the batteries were hot from charging, and didnt remember the next day), and the system is now for a checkup.

have a search around for more treads on housings in the slr section.

I got an Aquatica housing last year for my 30D. It is in my opinion a fantastic product. Very well built and designed. I haven't had any problems with flooding after 5 weeks of diving.
