  1. 20D will install in the same basic housing we utilize for the 10D, but will take twice as long as it should to nail together the first batch.  Will be interesting to see how it operates with eTTL conversion circuitry.  The following URL shows first photos of the LEDs and eTTL pushbuttons:

    I am now a dribbiling wreck. I was already wetting myself waiting for my 20D to turn up in my local camera shop in the UK, and now I am being driven wild by the pictures of the eTTL conversion on your web page.

     

    What exactly does "but require update to provide optimum performance" for the DS125 mean? Can this be done by your distributor in the uk (www.camerasunderwater.com) or do they have to send it back to you.

     

    Please don't forget us Brits when you start shipping your finished housings.

    Oops sorry, your web site does tell me why it needs to be done, got a bit over excited there. I would still like to know if it can be done in the UK though.

  3. I am currently waiting to take delivery of a new Canon 20D whenever the boat to the UK arrives. I have just sold all my old olympus underwater gear on Ebay, so I have to wait until someone releases a housing for the 20D.

     

    However, one thing that I feel would really help underwater photography is a housing that can take a DSLR and a battery grip. The weak point in a housing is the seal. With advancements in memory cards, I could now stick a 4GB compact flash card into the camera and be set up for the week (as long as I didn't want to change lenses). But the single battery certainly won't last that long, hence the usefullness of the grip.

     

    So come on Ike make that housing a little bit bigger and let us take more pictures. I am sure someone can design a housing that can take the camera with or without the grip.

     

    Cheers
