Big thanks Damselfish. We will be on the Cayman Aggressor. Long time since we've been there and on that boat!

In Topic: Sales numbers for UW gear manufacturers? How do they do their business?

29 April 2016 - 11:15 AM

 I've been a WetPixel member and UW photographer for 15 years.   Recently I have switched to mirrorless, moving on from a Ikelite housing and strobes.

It just baffles me that there are so many camera, housing, and accessory vendors in what I believe it to be a really small market segment.

I guess the limited production is what causes some of them to charge $3-$5 K for a housing.  I know, it has to be water and pressure proof, but that's a ton for a hard metal housing for ANYTHING!

Nikon recently offered UW housing, strobes, handles, cableing, etc. sourced from Sea and Sea.  Neither Nikon OR Sea and Sea will acknowledge their coss-supply and that just  irritates the heck out of me!

I'm anxious to see what it will do in clear water.   Bloody Bay Wall, here I come!

The numbers dont have to be spot on, just an idea.  I'm just baffled that there is so little information on the state of the UW photo industry. 

I'm not looking for secrets, just an idea of how big it is and how this many manufacturers compete with such a small eclectic sample of photographers

Ran it all in manual; with the strobe in TTL.  Works great and it's fast too!
