  1. That's great to see Isaac. Thank you for sharing images. I think I am going to have to go with something fairly similar. I'll post a pictures soon
  2. Isaac -- that's super useful & exciting to hear you were able to achieve this! Do you have any picture of your transformed housing you'd be able to share? Many thanks!
  3. Thank you very much for your reply Chris! Unfortunately at this stage, my budget is limited for this project, which is why I am looking into DIY options. Cable gland option I will rule out the IP68 gland then. Which cable gland would you recommend and where to find it? Using existing button hole w. sealant and securing cable to housing ATM most filming wouldn't be below 1.5 m and in fresh water. I would also be filming with the camera upside down which means that the Port used would be a the lowest point & yes, in that case the housing would become dedicated to this application. If I were to go for this option, which sealant and glue would you recommend? Flash port The larger flash Port would be ideal to use but I haven't found the right bulkhead that would fit both my budget and the case. Many thanks!
  4. Thank you Adam, that's great advice. Yes, I have to cut the Hdmi but did a quick test and it worked reconnecting it. Cable gland option The cable gland would indeed require enlarging the hole which present its own challenges(drilling in plastic). I found a cheap gland which is IP68 certified, can it do the job? If I were to buy one made for camera housings it was very expensive. I would imagine that enlarging the existing hole is more hazardous than using this pre-existing port as per the solution below? Using existing button hole w. sealant and securing cable to housing Using the existing port and somehow securing the cable to the case itself to avoid disturbances might be the safest option since I am not going very deep. I was also planning to extend the moisture meter cables inside the case and move the warning light up above the surface next to the monitor so I can take up the camera if a leakage begins and hopefully avoid submerging the camera. I have attached a very rough drawing of my idea. It is worth mentioning that I am using a monopod to submerge the camera and can run the cable safely up that so hopefully there will little risk of the cable getting snagged on things and damaging the seal.
  5. Hello, I would like to install an Hdmi cable running from my camera, through the housing and up to a surface monitor in order to film from a boat not more than 1.5 m down. Does anyone has experience doing this? I am using a Meikon A7II and would be replacing one of the existing through hull to get the cable running out and would probably need extra sealant and glue? Any help, tips or advices would be greatly appreciated! Sonia
