These are each about $100 all said and done. I have a Canon housing for an A640, and the Ikelite tray comes with a little piece to wrap around the base to keep the camera from rotating side to side. The Ultralight just screws in really tight.
The Utralight gets good reviews, but I want to make sure the camera isn't going to be getting loose all of the time. Can anyone offer feedback?
You need to be a little more descriptive of where you're headed with this. Are you getting a tray and handle just to support the Canon housing? Are you wanting to mount a strobe? A focus light? Extra lenses? Is it for frequent usage or vacation diving 3 or 4 times a year?
I would probably go with the UCLS but the Ikelite works fine too. The Ikelite will not directly mount the Canon housing. The Canon housings have one 1/4X20 tripod screw hole and the Ikelite is intended for number 12 screws used on most Ikelite compact housings. The UCLS has a slotted bottom and the "lip" which may make it more easily adaptable to the Canon housing. Me, I would purchase the Inon lens mount which converts the Canon housing to two attach screws and of course can accept various lenses to some good and use it with the UCLS tray or Inon Grip II.
