  • I never read these updates but glad it wasn't an unknown issue with the 9.9k wb thing!

    Manual Focusing
    Do you get frustrated with the manual focusing? The time it takes to get things in focus is a pain in the rear. Any tips out there?

  • Haven't used the Sony RX100 underwater for months, as the buttons on my Ikelite housing rusted through. Have sent it for servicing. Will try it again for next week's dive trip and see how.

    My Ikelite impression like very fragile n injury prone. :x

  • The ikelite housing of my canon has crack lines at the bottom where the tray screw on it. Wrote to ikelite USA and their explanation is, caused by stress from mounting to the tray. I'm like huh, aren't that's what the two holes there meant to be? Duh!!

  • I previously used an Ikelite housing for my Canon S90 and there were some difficulties - the control ring could not grip the front dial of the S90 and there wasn't any FO connections for external strobes. I'm currently using a Patima housing for my Sony RX100 and have no complaints!

    There is a cheaper housing by Meikon (sometimes marketed as NB) for the Sony RX100 series but I'm not sure how reliable they are. But the housings do have a 67mm threaded port as well as FO connections.
