my bro and i need a water housing for our camcorder and we dont know which to buy. we were thinking the epic cam but somone told me it doesnt have zoom and it is hard to use. i want it for wake boarding and my bro wants it for surfing and we arent looking to spend stupid amounts of money can anyone sugest anything or give me a better report on the epic cam.

Ewa bags are ok. It worked pretty well all summer until now because its getting colder. The water is soo cold that it fogs the lense like crazy, but besides that it was all right.

Combination of RainX Anti-Fog and one of these <a href="http://www.casesbypelican.net/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&amp;Store_Code=CBP&amp;Cat egory_Code=Desiccant" target="_blank"> Desiccant packs</a> should do the trick <BR> <BR>

We had like 6 of those silicon gel packs and it still fogged up.

The small ones that you find in a shoe box will not work because you have no idea if they are saturated or not.. <BR> <BR>The Desiccant pack is rechargeable so you know it's status, plus it has 20x more silica that 6 small packs.. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/262978.jpg" alt="checkthefirckenlink">

I have the Epic and the EWA bag style and the bag is much easier. The Epic is more difficult in the water and you can't get to the zoom or other controls. I have even busted my head open when the boat driver forgot to take it easy on the double up.... The bag is light, simple and I have had no problems with leaks or mositure. They are about the same cost. The bag is better for taking underwater too. The Epic is almost impossible to weight enough to keep it under the surface.
