    Hello, we have some close friends in Calgary who are interested in getting certified. The plan would be to have them do their classroom...

    Agreed, the effect will be small. The important point is the internal pressure will remain neutral or increase. It will not decrease at...

    True, but with the phone in a sealed case the change of pressure the phone would experience would be modest. The seal will compress, and...

    Good point about pressurization reducing the o-ring seal. However, I wouldn't say the enclosure is at a relative vacuum at depth...

    They should have you pressurize the case, not draw a vacuum. The idea is to keep water OUT. The seal and sensor can work with a delta in...

    I took the time to investigate the SportDiver case. It's a clever approach, I'll give them that. Having integrated electronics allows...

    How do you change settings while underwater? Does the housing have hardware and firmware integrated into it?

    Huh? The zoom factor is within the iPhone. How can a simple external case impose a limit on that?

    I thought I'd worked it out when I asked for the Micro. So with the TG-6 I'm hopeful but keeping an open mind.

    Thanks again to everyone who replied on this thread! I spent last night experimenting with the Micro some more. Bottom line for me...

    Been reading a lot about the TG-6 today. I really appreciate everyone's comments. A couple more questions: * TG-6 battery life? The...

    IDEngineer replied to the thread Sealife 3.0?.
    Yeah, I've noticed that same thing (cellphones in housings yielding great photos). I feel like I should snicker and make fun of people...

    This is excellent information, thank you. I don't presently have camera lights and (today!) don't know that I'll get that serious about...

    IDEngineer replied to the thread Sealife 3.0?.
    I would agree, but in one reviewer's writeup they were specifically comparing the Micro to the TG-6, as entry-level scuba cameras, and...

    Yep, I've noticed the TG-6 and wondered about it. When you say 25-100mm "equivalent", is that "digital" zoom? Basically trading...
