I'm interested in this camera as well. Have you had any luck outside this forum? I was going to contact some of the housing manufacturers to see if they have one slated for production.

S&S says be patient, will let us know when they let us know.
Ikelite doesn't have its D60 housing out yet, but said 10D out in a couple of months
Light and Motion - waiting on return email
Gates - no plans at this time
Amphibico - don't see any still camera housings

Others?

Subal will be coming out with a 10D housing around July.

I presume the Subal will be similar in price to the D10 (for Nikon D100). Base D10 housing is around $2900 US.

Then there's UK-Germany, which rumor has it will build a 10D housing -- I have the D60 flavor, the 10D doesn't quite fit, but some others find that a 10D fits in their d60 housing. My mileage varied and that makes me a sad panda.

There's also the housings Ocean Brite will be selling (see news on this site).

I am also considering this camera. Jonah is making a housing for this camera that will be sold by Oceanbrite in the US that I am very interested in. Should be available for purchase in August. See the Oceanbrite ad on the wetpixel news page. Oceanbrite has sent me a flyer on the housing. Price is $1700 plus dome port. Available ports are 8" for 15mm, 4" for 20mm and Macro for 50mm and range in price from about $200 to $450. Zoom lenses are not yet supported but should be "soon" according to Oceanbrite.

Also rumored to be out soon is a housing for the EX550 strobe. Otherwise, the Jonah housings have Nikonos bulk heads.

I have not been able to find a review of Jonah housings however. Housings are out for the EOS 3 and the Nikon F100 but I have not found anyone to talk to about them.

My guess is that Sea&Sea will produce a housing soon to accomodate the 10D given the minor modifications necessary to the D60 housing they already sell.

Would love to find a review or hear opinions about the Jonah housings. If you fidn out something please post for us all.

Hope this helps, at least a little, with your search

Got the email back from light and motion and to my dismay, they don't have plans to do a housing for the 10D and pointed me towards a D100 instead. A related question, I saw on echeng's site, he has a dome port for his s&s housing, is this preferrable to the housing it ships with and why?

Lenses with a field of view wider than ~28mm should be used behind a dome port for best results.

Thanks for the info James,

I've got the whole lense mess ahead of me. I'v been shooting mostly video lately and going back to stills, I haven't kept my equipment up. I used to shoot a Nikonos 3, but it got flooded a number of years ago so moving to a regular SLR and housing, I have to start from scratch. The wife is not going to be happy :)
