In Topic: Making a waterhousing

Hey guys,

Thanks again for all your input. I never realised that there were so many people willing to help out there :blush:

I looked at dome ports and they're around $200, so hopefully the extra bit of cash will create better results.

And I was planning on filling the housing up with tissues before going swimming with the thing and throwing it around underwater to test it out, and if I saw any bubbles I was just gonna mark the spots and... weld them shut?

Hehe this is gonna be fun!

Thanks guys,

The thought didn't even cross my mind to just buy a dome port. I wouldn't like to try making a dome port from acrylic but I'm sure we could easily make something up so a pre-made dome can fit on it.

Thanks again, such a simple answer that I didn't think about :blush:

Just to add to the list is Liquid Eye

No experience with them, but I've been looking too and they seem to be priced fairly well.

Hey Ryan,

I'm talking to a mates dad on Monday about making a waterhousing for my 40D. He works with metal and has made a few housings for other surf photographers, so I'll let you know how it goes.

If you haven't bought anything it may be worth looking into. I believe he uses aluminium for the housings but apparently they're a hell of alot cheaper than the other options.
