Where Can I Find A Housing For My Nikon Coolpix 775
Is It Worth It Or Should I Buy A Camera Specifically For Underwater, Do I Need Special Attachments For Pics Using The Nikon Or If I Find A Housing Is That All I Need Any Suggestions
Well, I don't think there is a decent housing made for the 775. My suggestion is to consider getting a new camera with a dedicated housing and support for UW photography. Olympus and Canon both have decent support from Inon. Can also consider the newer Nikons but those will require more work in terms for finding housing, and fitting accesories.
On www.digideep.com you will find two existing housing for the CP 775. However knowing this camera has only 2.1 mega pixel I would go for a new camera with at least 4 mp. As suggested by Wolverine go for either Canon or Olympus (Further more you have for both camera your own corner…
I have a Nikon Coolpix 5700 which we just love. However, looking at getting a housing for it will run $800 or more depending on manufacturer. While I would love to put the 5700 in the water, the cost is nuts.
So due to cost, support, accessories issues, I'm leaning towards Oly or Canon.
I like the idea of only having to take one camera on vacation, but having the housing, strobe(s), etc. to put it in the water.
Nikon does make 4 housings for Nikon cameras, but of course, not for the cameras we have.
