In Topic: Olympus release new underwater housing

18 November 2008 - 04:19 PM

I own both cameras. The E510 seems to fit in the housing just fine. The mode dial switch on the E520 is slightly larger so you have to use some downward pressure on the housing dial to rotate the dial on the E510 camera. The other rotary works just fine. Although, I won't, and haven't, dived with the setup, I'll probably use the 510 as a backup in a pinch. With all that said, I'm not sure its worth the money you're saving. I'd just buy the E520 and have a houisng made for each other avoiding any issues at all.


I bought the E-510 twin lens kit when it came out... Oh I love it.
However I need to get back into my watersports as I have moved to the Isle of Lewis.
It's cold and very wet and wild here.
Do you reckon the housing for the e520 is the best thing I can get for my e510?

does anybody know about this japanese housing?

what about the gibson model sold by BS Kinetics?

How long would I last with one of those bag things like the ... Ewa-Marine U-AX?

Until tonight I thought I couldn't get a system to fit an e-510. oh the choices.

Thank you in advance for any feedback.
