I can vouch for the Panasonic Housings being worth the money. They may not be as well made as the Fuji ones I had used before (double O-Ring) but they are small, easy to handle, and as long as you memorise the positions of all the buttons on land first....easy to use. Ive been more than happy with the TZ10 with Pana Housing for its first 15 dives back in September, just need to get back in the water soon !


I've been renting out panasonic packages (tz3, tz4, tz7, zs1, zs3 w/ corresponding housings) for the last 3 years and everybody is happy with those settings.

I did flood a couple thow as the latch is a little bit too easy to slide open when misholding.
To prevent that, I now drill a small hole in the white plastic cover and cable tie (nothing a cable tie can't fix, really)

Since then, no flood... Maybe you should consider doing the same.. But don't drill the housing :)

In Topic: Are video people smarter than stills people?

Cinematography (from Greek: kinema - κίνημα "movement" and graphein - γράφειν "to record"), is the making of lighting and camera choices when recording photographic images for the cinema. It is closely related to the art of still photography. Many additional issues arise when both the camera and elements of the scene may be in motion, though this also greatly increases the creative possibilities of the process.

Why all those photographers do slideshows or galleries so that people can sea multiple images ? :D
Why all those videographers love freezing to a still image when they get a perfect shot ? ;)

The definition said it all : videographers have (or should have) a greater creativity, that's all ...
:P

We still use VX200 for daily UW videos, good enough for low price DVDs.
If you don't plan sending it to Africa, I'll get it and pay postage costs to Australia :D
