That's the concept of the Easy Dive Leo. You can change cameras with only a different tray and control software, moving the controls to the handles. Light and Motion uses a similar concept for Video, but for ease of use, not interchangeability. They used to make camera housings that moved the controls to the handles, but have stopped building still camera housings. To me, the big issue is availability of the PC board to make it work. When the product becomes obsolete, the mfg. stops supplying PC boards for it and it becomes useless. I have a very nice $650 Sea & Sea strobe that is no longer repairable for that reason (less than five years old). I am currently taking pictures with a Nikon F100 film camera in a Sea & Sea housing that I bought on E-bay for a couple of hundred bucks. Because it is almost entirely mechanical, it still works great and is repairable.
