    Comments about Amphibico Dive Buddy EVO HD Elite for Sony HDR-HC9, HDR-HC7, HDR-HC5:

    I use this product almost daily to film scuba divers and marine life. Handles well, controls are easily accessible, but it would be nice if the angle on the buttons were tilted down and the light indicating recording were at a more visible angle. Sturdy and well balanced. Looking forward to the lighting system.
