AQUATECH STRAIGHT OUTTA THE BOX

PREVIOUS / NEXT

UNDERWATER by KRISS on 29 march 2016

Yesterday I received my Aquatech water housing as well as all the goodies I had ordered along.
After paying the deliveryman the duties tax for import (yes I hoped they would skip that but they didn’t) I opened the box and this is what I found :

- The water housing.
- The primary lens port I will have no use of.
- The extra lens port.
- The leash.
- The bag.

Everything was properly packed with lots of packing foams and the box was strong, not a single scratch.
I got everything out and the first thing I noticed was the laughable bag.
I paid $29 for this neoprene bag and I was expecting something more.
All the rest of the equipment feels strong and quality made.

I mounted the handle with the trigger, which a 6 years old could do.
I then tried to fit in my D800E in the housing and it slid right in.
One thing though, the jack cable you need to put on both ends (camera and housing) points in the same direction for both parts, making it a bit tricky for them not to conflict in the housing but nothing you can’t fix.

I then tried the housing in my bathtub with no camera in it as it is advised to do upon reception.
There was no leak but when I let it dry a little water slipped through the screwing of the lens port.
I certainly didn’t tight it well enough but since you have to be careful not to smash the joint this is something that needs further tests to get the right pressure.

For now the water is still freezing cold and I asked a friend for a wetsuit to try it asap.
You won’t see any photos with people this week I am afraid because I need my models not to freeze to death and get hypothermia shock so I will be reasonable and wait.
I will surely shoot that for other purposes very soon though !
