Hello Wetpixel Hivemind! I'm hoping for some feedback on the more affordable series of housings to be used with one of the high end compacts like the Sony RX-100 (any one of the 3 models) or Canon G7X. I know that the Nauticam and Recsea aluminum housings are the stars, and that's all I hear from people in retail. But I know the less expensive housings see plenty of use and popularity, so can any of you chime in and let me know your experiences and thoughts on it? Any comments on reliability (most importantly, will it stay dry??), functionality of buttons etc, ergonomics, size (I've decided to go with a compact mostly for size and flexibility), and accessory lens options would be greatly appreciated. I would also be happy for any thoughts on Meikon and manufacturer housings (Canon etc). My understanding is that these housings are just not up to snuff for an avid diver and intermediate photographer (not all functions are available, plastic warps shallower than rated for, etc). And just for context, I dive a lot in cold water, I've been photographing for several years and have loved macro in the past, but never had the opportunity to do wide angle, and I am very excited to finally be able to try it. Thanks so much for any input! Cheers Emma
