In Topic: Seacam housing for Canon EOS1D3/1DS3 for sale

Hi Milo


I'm afraid not.


I'm keeping the 1DS3 housing but please see my new advert for the 5D housing.

Actually I may just keep this housing and sell my original Canon 5D Mk1 housing complete with the camera - I could supply it as a ready to go outfit so if anyone is interested pm me.

Hi Paul,

have you got a standard view finder for sale if so what is the price, as I may be interested for splits as I find it hard with the S45.



Hi Andy


I've emailed you.

Just read this. How sad - one of the pioneers over here - I first heard him talk at BSOUP in the early eighties talking about Blue Holes. End of an era I'd say.

In Topic: Physically small intervalometer

Hey Paul, I have a few questions for you if you have a moment:


1. How did it work for you?

2. Obviously you would have to set it before you close the housing, how did you control it?

3. Does the trigger button control when it starts and stops?
4. Has anyone tried Magic Lantern's TL?


I have 3x 7d's that I would like to experiment with, but I would like a more secure method with my 1DX. Thank you ahead of time for any information you can provide.

1. Worked fine on a 5D2

2. Yes preset it and accept some 'blank or irrelevant images'

3. On the Canon intervalometer its the 'start' button I think (I'll have to dig it out from the box its stored in if you want me to check, but its fairly obvious).

4. I haven't - looks like others have.

In Topic: Dumb Question: Pressurizing a housing?

:D but also a nice little quote from Paul Kay (UK distributor for SeaCam)


Strike a chord at all? ;)

Actually, although I'm not sure entirely about this, something I've come across makes me suspect that a positive pressure device designed to be capable of running at several bar may fall foul of pressure vessel regulations here in the UK and might potentially need periodic testing and may also require a fail safe blow out valve fitting - I believe that this might depend on its volume and the pressure - I know model steam engines require something this and they don't run at very high pressures. Given the potential for someone to sue should a pressurised housing fail to depressurise and then potentially cause injury I'm not sure that it would be easily marketable here either.
