U/W housing for Fuji 6900 digicam

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a housing that is designed for the Fuji 6900 digital camera.

I have a Subal N80 housing that I use with a Nikon F801/N8008 but it is very large and heavy.

I have actually managed to take photos using the 6900 in the Subal housing but would like to have more features available e.g ability to see LCD monitor, zoom, etc.

 

I dive to 40m/130ft regularly so would need a housing that was 'safe' at this depth.

 

Thanks

It may take a bit for them to get back to you. After all, they're in Japan. Once the time difference is taken into account, your message may still have to get translated. I wrote INON a while back and finally got a response about a week later -- answered all my questions, just took some time. Alternatively, you may have to go through one of the places that bring stuff in from Japan. Try:

 

www.marscuba.com

www.underwaterdigital.net

www.japan-direct.com

 

Maybe one of them can special order one for you. Or, if you have a friend that lives in Japan, maybe they can help out . . .

You might also try www.marinecamera.com. They import the housing for the 4800/6800. They might be able to get the one for the 4900/6900, too if you bribe them sufficiently :) .

Got this reply from Zillion.

 

Not good news.

=======================

 

Dear Dr. Knights,

 

Thank you for your inquiry. Mr. Kojima of Zillion has asked me to reply.

 

The Zillion housing for FinePix6900Z is available in Japan but is not

available for export.

 

The reasons are as follows:

1) The housing is hand made (thermoformed) from acrylic sheets. Acrylic has

low impact resistance.

2) There is some chance that acrylic housings may be damaged in the course

of heavy use, thereby requiring service/repair.

3) Since the housing would need to be returned to Japan for service and then

returned to user, at substantial cost just for the shipping fees, Zillion's

policy is to not export the acrylic housings.

 

Zillion is exporting the following models, which are made of polycarbonate,

and much more durable:

1) FpCute for FinePix 4500 and 40i

2) FpBlitz for FinePix 4800z and 6800z

3) FpBlitz for FinePix 50i

 

At this time there is no designated dealer in the UK. We could ship

you the polycarbonate models listed above if you have further interest.

 

Best regards,

-Mark Rupert
