Hi Hammer88,

Wow i've just looked up the housing options for the Sony nex 5n and ya they are very pricey. They will set you back the same as a full dSLR setup. The Sony is a great camera but it would be far cheaper for you to opt for the canon S95 and housing.

I use the s90 (its predecessor) with the ikelite housing. If i could give you one small bit of advice it would be to spend your money on a suitable wide angle wet lens before purchasing a strobe. The wide angle lens will allow you to cut down the amount of water between you and your subject whilst keeping the full scene in shot. The closer you are to your subject the more vivid the colors are and your shots will have better definition.

A quick check on the classifieds section should find you a nice s95 setup. You could pick up a suitable wet lens and strobe for far less than the cost of the nex 5n housing.

Have fun shopping around :lol:

From memory i believe it can get quite deep in parts (around 30-40M) but most of the life is located along one wall near where the lake meets the open sea all of which is less than 10M. Last time i dived there was about 8 years ago so memory is a bit foggy. Nigel might be able to fill you in with more details

Here is the location if your interested
