New Aquatica housing for the EM1

11 January 2014 - 02:54 PM

Just saw this as a posting on Facebook, didn't see a thread here yet.  Glad to see Aquatica jump into the mirrorless game.  Although ports would be different, at least viewfinders and bulkhead adaptors should be compatible from old systems.  Also, just like Nauticam, Aquatica is including a vacuum system as standard equipment.  Competitive pricing too.

For those who have vacuum sealed housings, do you still buy insurance?

I have personally had good experiences with DAN flood insurance, but of course it costs about $200 per year.  I also carry a separate rider on my personal insurance for travel loss/theft.

 

So, do any of you who have vacuum attachments on your housing still buy flood insurance?   On first thought, it would no longer be necessary.  I understand a flood can still happen, but insurance is "playing the odds" anyway, right?

 

thanks,

John

Do any of you dive with Tec cargo shorts?

I find myself needing more room to carry photography stuff.  Like two diopters, tripod, hand mirror, filters for gopro, safety sausage, snorkel, etc.  Even though I don't use a BP/W and have pockets on my BC, they seem to always be full :D
