Comments about Ikelite Ikelite Underwater Video Housing for Sony DCR-DVD505 and DVD905 Camcorders:
Last Christmas I took this housing with me to the Red Sea. The videos were great. The ease of handling this housing in the water is impressive (It is very light and easy to carry in the water). However I carried this in my suitcase because it is quite heavy out of the water. I recommend anyone buying this for shallow water shooting purchase the appropriate filter for your latitude. For depths of more than 3 metres in clear tropical waters I recommend both filter and lights used together.
I overcame the white balance by changing the camera's battery just before
diving with it. I did not turn the camera on until I was underwater. I put a sheet of white plastic in front of the camera before I turned it on so that when I turned it on it adjusted to white in the ambient light.
