Default UW Housing for the FZ

Gordy's trout pictures reminded me. I've been casually looking around for an underwater housing for the FZ 35, without any luck. I'm a SCUBA diver and have been using a Nikonos V (film!!!!) camera for years. If I can find a housing for the FZ35, I'd switch over in a flash. Has anyone looked into this, or have any information? Thanks,

saly,

just saw this on adorama:

http://www.adorama.com/IPCDMWMCFX40....utm_term=Other

it says it's for the fz40, however the bodies of the fz35 and fz40 seem almost
identical.

*****okay you'd think a librarian could read better! lol! the ad says fx40 and fz48,
but the body in the add looks like an fz 35 or 40. sorry for the false alarm!!*****


hope it helps,

Hey saly i found this :
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...e_EM_U_AZ.html
It came up as an accessory for the Fz40 so it will work for the Fz35 too as well as with other cameras. It is a little bit expensive but check it out

Hey geoper, thanks. Unfortunately, these soft enclosures are not very durable and cannot go very deep. These cannot attach to arms for external strobe, etc.
