Hey

I'm looking for some underwater housing for a Canon Powershot A95. Does anyone know where I could find a cheap but reliable option? The diving won't be seriously deep.

Cheers!

Cannon do a housing for this camera the WP-DC50 http://www.camerasunderwater.co.uk/d...on/wpdc50.htmlat £140 including tax I'd call that cheap, you may think differently but by comparison the Ikelite housing is £300.

I don't know where youare so I suggest a google search on the housing model number.

Hey, I'm in Northern England. I've seen some on ebay for £100ishbut can I use the WP-DC50 for the Canon as well (sorry I'm new to this!) If it doesn't have to be strictly for the A95 it could really open up my options!...

I'm not really clear what you're asking. The WP-DC50 is for the A95 only. Most rigid housings are for one camera model only. There are a few where different cameras have the same buttons and layout such as the A75 and A85 where the same housing fits both. A fexible housing such as these http://www.camerasunderwater.co.uk/e...lls/index.htmlwill fit a range of cameras. Personally I'm not a fan and in my limited experience they can be difficult to operate under even moderate pressure.

I'm aware of three large suppliers of housings in the UK Cameras Underwater whose URL I've already given you. I've dealt with this company quite a few times and always found them helpful.

Ocean Optics http://www.oceanoptics.co.uk/canon/canon.htmlwho sell the same housing for the A95. I've spoken to this company and they were quite helpful but I've never bought from them.

Alan James http://www.marine-cameras.com/another helpful supplier but he doesn't appear to stock a suitable housing for your camera.
