Safe Housing Handling
Posted 23 March 2003 - 09:38 PM
With my Nikonos V, I would get back from local night dives and soak the system in water at least overnight, then remove the film the next day and go for processing. It's a nice thing to have local sites - my gear is always nicely rinsed after each trip.
With my new digital setup, though, I now have this great 'instant gratification'. I want to get that thing out of my housing as soon as I get home so I can see where I screwed up my shots
So, what do you guys do? Do you use a lint free chamois or towel to dry the housing, then take the camera out and reload/whatever, and then close up and put the housing in for a soak, or what?
I guess on trips you have to do this. My worry is that salt water may eventually get into the system if I open before a good soak.

After a dive I wash my housing well by soaking it in water and then in the shower and after 15 minutes itís all dry again and I can take out the camera.

I thought that might cause problems with the seals/rings.

Life is a beach and then you dive.
