I've got one and it works but It's tough to operate the camera.

I still have my very first Ewa Marine bag purchased summer of 2002. Up until a few months ago when I finally got a custom housing built, every tube shot photo I had published was shot with that Ewa housing. Yes, I lost one camera to it back in '05, but that's because I was dumb and tried to do an underwater portrait shoot with it in a swimming pool. <BR> <BR>It is a little difficult to control the camera at first, but once you get used to it it actually becomes quite easy. I can change my shutter, aperture, ISO, AF points, camera mode and white balance temperatures all very easily. I still use the bag sometimes when I'm shooting from the tube with a flash because I don't have a flash attachment for my custom housing yet. I love it because it's actually fairly easy to change camera settings and because it's so easy to throw in a bag and pack it up for a trip.

Hey, I was bored last night and it wasn't that far down the list!

Mine works pretty well, I'd rather have a custom housing, but I can't shell out the dough right now. That 300 2.8 i just bought kinda drained the wallet <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Anyhow, I've had mine for two years now and it's worked great so far. You really can't beat them for the price. <BR> <BR>And yes underwater portrait shoots are dumb, but fun <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87667/498343.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by oldschoolripper on September 06, 2007)
