Underwater housing tips

If you have an underwater housing for your digicam or SLR, here’s some tips I collected via forums, and various sites on the internet. See …

  • Don’t store the housing closed
  • Never check the housing in an aircraft with the seal in place
  • Insert some absorbent material (tampons work like a charm) when sealing the housing
  • Load fresh batteries every time!
  • Regrease the seal everytime it’s opened
  • When used in saltwater, soak the housing sealed in freshwater overnight
  • Wipe the lens port if you’re about to take a photo above water
  • Always bring enough storage for your digicam! You can’t change memory cards underwater!
