    I am surprised that SL did not respond to the first time use as well. And I'll second Don on State Farm - also a good and relatively inexpensive policy here in Maryland. I have the DAN dive insurance, but although I have listed dive equipment with them... the cameras are not in there for flooding... only if stolen. As Don says, their other products are variable, you can get better trip interruption coverage from a few providers, theirs is just a self branded version of one of the standard ones.

    Thanks for the info, I'll check with my insurance (not State Farm) and see if they have such a policy available.

    No, they just directed me to where I could get a new one. But I'll follow up on a message I received today. Here's what I got from them the first time:

    The cameras are available from our parts distributor, SeaLife Camera Parts - SeaLife Battery - Moisture Muncher. As long as the Recsea housing has a 1/4 20" tripod mount the strobe will work. If you have the proflash, the camera must have 4 or less preflashes


    They answered my question though.

    Ok, I'll do that.

    Noi, they just told me where to get anew camera. But I've sent another email so I'll see what they say this time. Fingers crossed. :)

    That'll probably work, but the State Farm PAP is available alone, without insuring anything else with them. Both good options.

    Sealife came through, tech services is replacing my camera at a heck of a discount. Such good service, my faith has been restored. Time for camera insurance
