I've got to admit that the phrase:

'Those who live in glass houses....'

springs to mind about now...

Cheers, Simon

Sorry Simon, but I fail to see the point of that post? :)

Sorry Drew but I just had to giggle at a certain Nauticam dealer who appeared to gleefully hyjack a competitors bad review for their benefit only to have this come and bite them on the backside a few weeks later.

"Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" as the saying goes.

I didn't mean to deflect the attention away from the poor guys who have had their brand new housings flood and their cameras and lenses wrecked due to a basic manufacturing design flaw. I'd be devastated if I was them :)

Cheers, Simon

Hmmmm ... I haven't been here in awhile and so far have just had my housing on a few test dives. The notice from Nauticam comes as a bit of a surprise as I hadn't heard anything from them or the dealer on this. Time to go look a little more closely at my housing as I've got a big trip coming up. :)

Did Nauticam replace your camera and lens in the end?

I doubt they'd let them publicize such news, GSdivers. I know of manufacturers who have replaced equipment for customers with serious housing issues on the condition of NDAs and of course, no more bad mouthing! :)
