In Topic: Nikonos V w/15mm

I have always thought that the Nikonos is much more prone to flooding than any other underwater system. Anyone else think this too?

IMO Nik III great, though tends to flood at the synch cable port

Nik IVa and Nik V = waste of money flooded about six of those all up in six years, fives mostly through the TTL pins in the synch socket (same problem as the III) and the IVa mostly through the stupid back door seal.

I can' understand why people these days waste time with a Nikonos. About 99% of the world's gone digital haven't they? (Except me, although no more underwater photograhy for a while, not with a NIk anyway)

Cheers
