Greatings all. Thinking it's time to retire my Olpmus and housing and move on to my Sony A7R-IV that I've been using on for land for bit now. I haven't purchased housing, but VERY intrigued with the easydive house... Futureproof. I do enjoy wide shooting so I would like to be able to also use my Sony 14mm 1.8 GM. So my question is: Is anyone using the easydive (Leo3 WI) with a Sony A7 body and the Sony 14mm 1.8 GM lens? Any distortion? They suggest the 160 dome. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Also post some pics if you have'm.
I am Selling a Housing from the Company Easydive (Leo 3 WI). The Housing fits a lot of different cameras, only a different tray for the camera is needed. So it is future proof if you consider upgrading later on. The housing is at the moment configured for a Sony A7 R III AND Sony A7 III. I used the housing with a sigma 15mm on metabones adapter. The housing is working totally fine and was not used very much. I’d like to sell it, because for my type of photography and using it doesn’t fit to my camera handling. I bought the housing in the beginning of 2021! For other configurations, another extension ring might be necessary https://www.easydive.it/en/underwater-housing/mirrorless/leo3-wi.224.html The standard Buttons are: on the front: Autofocus and shutter on the back: Movie Record Aperture up and down Shutter Speed up and down ISO up and down switch button (to get access to an additional button layout) off Button The depth rating of that setup ist 150 (!) meters.

I did a quick search and honestly only came up with 1 tread talking about this housing. For those unfamiliar, its a unique type of housing where it fits multiple cameras because the controls are actually electronically synced to the camera through a USB port, instead of being mechanically connected. Here is a link to the housing of interest: https://www.easydive.it/en/underwater-housing/mirrorless/leo3-wi.224.html#It has a few strong appeals for me: 1. Multiple camera compatibility over time - Clearly this is the main factor. I currently have an a6300 with Ikelite housing, but bought a new a7iii and was looking for housings. Cost of supporting a new camera is around 300 EUR for a new software update that you do from home; Cost savings will be substantial over time especially when changing cameras 2. Full electronic and not mechanic - less likely for leaks and misalignments happening; I had some issues with button alignments on my previous ikelite housings after it getting knocked a bit So here comes the question, anyone have experience with it? Really looking to have some feedback from the community to see if there are any issues / recommendations. The only person I know from the forum is Eitan (who has an amazing IG feed too), but not much else
Read an introduction on a dive magazine and pretty impressed by the design of capable to house different models of DSLR from Canon and Nikon by only switched the mount plate. Does anyone use this housing and is it a good option? Thanks!
