My very first underwater setup arrived in the mail today... I ordered a Canon S100 and a Fisheye FIX100 housing, along with a Fisheye UWL-28 wide angle convertor.
Anyhow, in reading over the manual for the FIX100 housing, it says that after each and every time you get the housing wet, later, after it has dried, you must remove the O-ring gasket and rub a provided oil on it and then put it back on the housing. It also says that you must never leave the housing in the hot sun, and that you must never enter the water with the housing in hand - instead you must jump in first and then have someone hand the housing down to you.
My question is, are each of these things just the Fisheye company trying to cover themselves over liability in case the housing floods, or are these really important things to do after each and every day of a dive trip to make sure that the equipment remains water tight? Or maybe some of them are important and others aren't?
I'm just trying to figure out a routine that I need to follow on my first upcoming week-long trip (so if there are any other big big important things to do each day, please feel free to mention that too).
Thank you so much, and sorry if this is a silly beginner question.
