Flooding camera housing with gaseous nitrogen

15 May 2008 - 04:24 PM

Has anyone ever considered flooding a camera housing with gaseous nitrogen?

The idea is to replace the ambient air that has moisture and will compress.

Since GN is very dry, I would think this would cure fogging.

Since GN does not compress well, it would serve to strengthen the housing.

Raised in Florida-Stuck in the Desert

Hello Everyone,

I join from the far off reaches of Tucson Arizona.

A few days ago, I purchased my first digital camera and housing. A G9 and Canon Housing.

Man am I stoked. In less than a month I will try all this out in Roatan.

My father used to take underwater photos in Florida, back in the 70s. I still have some of his equipment as ancient as it may be. He worked for an underwater salvage company named Real Eight. He was a machinist-not a diver for the company. Oddly, there are few photos from this era. The State of Florida was greedy and wanted the lion's share of the booty, so photography was considered evidence.

Anyhow, I look forward to surfing the site. It looks well managed and well populated with good folks.
