I have a 20d in an Ike housing. Are there similarly shaped Cannon cameras or will I need an entirely new housing if I upgrade my camera?

unfortunately you'll have to buy a new housing -- that's why i'm still shooting my 20D which still makes good images

Hey James, yes, not gonna happen, a new camera will most certainly require a new housing. Congrats on the move to Hawaii by the way!

My 20d has died. Looks like it is time to upgrade. . . Drat.

On the plus side, there will be plenty of chances to use an UW camera here! Thanks for the replies.

James, if my memory serves me (and I'm guessing here!) I think the 30D fit in the 20D housing with little mod. Or was that the 40D-50D?

You could always buy 2nd hand 20Ds. Should be plenty of those around for a few hundred dollars.
