Best Vacuum System for DSLR Housing

31 October 2017 - 03:55 AM

Hello divers with housings that have vacuum systems, which model do you love/hate and why?


Trying to decide between models such as the Leak Sentinel, Backscatter one, or one I haven't thought of yet. I know many of you have the Nauticam one, some have the Aquatica Surveyor, but I most likely won't be getting a Nauticam or Aquatica housing (can they be installed on another brand housing?).


I know some complaints are that you need a special vacuum pump vs. models that can use any wine bottle pump (which sounds nice).  I also like the ones that are more streamlined to the housing (I saw one person's which was protruding up high off of the housing and it looked like it could get caught on things).


Thanks for the recommendations for or against particular models.
