Comments about Ikelite Ikelite Underwater Video Housing for Sony HDR-CX100 Video Camera:

The tolerances for the camera are so exact that the rubber covering on a couple of pins designed to hold camera in place was enough to prevent camera from fitting. I struggled for quite a while before calling Ikelite for help. They quickly solved the problem--stripping off the rubber coating was all it took to allow for a snug fit. The mechanical knobs for operating camera are pretty ingenious, but all those openings in the housing are a potential worry down the road. It lacks U/W microphone, which is mostly useless anyway except in presence of whales or for shooting on surface in wet conditions. This is my 3rd U/W housing, and although I have yet to dive with this one (I did do U/W test), this one is my favorite design-wise with clear case and very light weight.
