Modified Subal housing
Posted 05 August 2005 - 02:59 PM
The reason I ask is that I have a Subal Housing, for a Nikon F90x, which I wanted to either part exchange, or sell,so I can get a housing for my D70. It seems it is worth more as scrap value, as anyone who has scanned e-bay will concur !!
Now, I know I am not an engineer, but I wouldnt have thought it would be that hard to do?
So, has anyone tried / Does anyone know of a company who could do this, or is it financially non viable?

No Big modifications and you can use both cameras in the same housing.
Not all funcions though.
One button on the back working so far.
On one of the housings we even cut a hole in the back so that we can see the display.

I think that buying a cheap F80/F100/F5 housing would be the best way to go. I have certainly seen some very good deals on these systems on eBay.

As an aside, I wonder how long it will be before D70 housing become available for silly-low prices, because I dont suppose it will be long before Nikon bring out the D80, 0r D200, or some such "must-have" new camera. I know there are threads discussing this here on Wetpixel, but it makes you think, doesn't it?

You could always keep your eye out for an old F80 or F100 housing?
