I can also recommend a product called Tef-Gel. After making sure you've gotten rid of any salt deposits and corrosion, treat all bolt threads with Tef-Gel. It lasts a very, very long time.

 To start with it would be nice to have for example one standard DLSR camera model per camera manufecturer  (e.g Nikon, Canon, etc.) with the same dimensions and the buttons on the same locations (standard means that the outside configuration  should not change over say 5 years).  With only the inside technology changing between manufecturers (camera brands) or depending on new technical developments. That indeed would be a noble goal. Because why would camera manufecturers take into account the wishes of people that put their cameras in UW housings?

 

Chances are the marketing types will say that if you change the outside 'look' you'll get more sales even on an incremental update. Most candidate cameras (at least 95%?)  will never get near an UW housing.

Does this mean that the D7200 will fit into the other D7100 housings that are on the market as well?  It would indeed be exceptional that a camera upgrade not automatically necessitates a new housing.

 

Same thing happened with the GH3 to GH4 jump. If you have good ergonomics, I'd rather camera manufacturers spend time/money improving features rather than paying for new molds or tooling.

I was at Oztek in Sydney over the weekend and the guys from Nauticam Australia had a D7200 in the D7100 housing and it all seem to fit perfectly.

 

Were you able to try out all buttons or was it simply that they had a 7200 in 7100 housing?

Would be great if it did! They are certainly very close.
