Q: How deep did you take your equipment?

 

Got s&s housing for d200 and I'm wondering what depth will it last? S&S is confirming 60m/200ft. But the question is about general housings, not particulary this one

I've had an mdx300 to 80m a few times with no issues. Have mdx800 now which is rated to 100m, the only issue is I'm still using optical glass dome which is only rated to 60m.

I just took a Nauticam 5d3 rig, with 8.5" acrylic dome and carbon fibre float arms to 125m. worked a charm, quite impressed with housing to be honest

was also testing a fisheye focus light to the same depth, no issues at all.

While in Bali last year I took my Subal housing for the D800 to just below 200 ft three or four times with no leaks.
