I gave one away off this board about 2 years ago. I offered it for free and several guys argued with me about the price. Go figure.

Dive the Yukon.

It is a Canadian destroyer sunk as an trifocals reef.

Follow the manual completely. Usually some control is wrong.

Check the camera tray rails. I once had one come loose and it pushed against the back of the housing just enough to cause a leak.

I once had to send a camera and housing to nautical. Some control had gotten out of alignment and the camera would not set properly.

Bugger! Sorry to hear your peepers are failing you Nick.

If lasers will work for you, take that option. I only have second-hand experience with it but it seems to be the perfect solution for those lucky enough to have a laser-fixable problem.

If not, get a whopping big screen, figure out a way to house it, and post the answer here for the rest of us.

Good luck mate

For most people, lasik is absolutely the last thing you want to do for reading problems. I have patients whom have actually tried to sue their doctors fir suggesting this approach.

I usually suggest daily disposable multi focal contact lenses for my divers and surfers

Yes, it has to be something with the camera. Remove all straps, LCD protectors, viewfinder protectors, ect. Then make sure the camera is set and seated properly.

Repeat until the housing seals properly.
Be sure all the camera controls are set as per the housing manual.
