We are passionate about underwater imaging here at Master Divers. Phill and I are often out documenting our dives and have recently made a fun underwater movie which is our version of Queens Bohemium Rhapsody. We also made a more serious environmental movie too. So when we were approached with these innovative housings, we jumped at the chance to stock it for our divers.
If you like taking photos underwater and have looked into buying your own camera and housing then you will realize that there is one drawback to this. Most camera housings are specific to the camera meaning that when you want to upgrade your camera, you have to upgrade your housing too. This new idea from Seashell solves that problem as their two housings are compatible with over 800 different camera models.
The SS1 can house 600 models of camera (look here) and is suitable for external zoom compact digital cameras.
The SS2 can house 200 models of camera (look here) and is suitable for internal zoom compact digital cameras.
You can convert them to house this huge range of cameras with the insertion of pads and stoppers to securely hold your camera in place and ensure that the buttons can be properly manipulated. This short movie shows you just how simple it is.
Housings come in a range of colours and are rated to 40m. We love them so much that we have a model for rent as well as offering them for sale too. Both rental and purchase have been extremely popular with our divers but dont just take our word for it – check out these reviews. We are happy to offer mail order or have a housing ready for collection when you join us to dive or get to Koh Tao. Housings retail at 6000B which is around GBP 125, Euro 14o, USD 202.
