    Comments about Ewa-Marine VHV20 Underwater Housing for Canon HV20 & HV30:

    I've used two of Ewa Marine's so called waterproof housings. Neither were taken more than a meter under the surface.
    The first one leaked slowly through the poorly designed seal. I managed to control the leak by applying electricians tape around the edges before every use.
    The other Ewer Marine bag split at a seam and partially flooded the camera. Ewer offered to replace the bag but I was left with a hefty repair bill for the camera. Needles to say I did not take up Ewer Marine's offer.
    I still use the remaining bag but only with an older camera and with great caution.

    Comments about Ewa-Marine VHV20 Underwater Housing for Canon HV20 & HV30:

    Bought this for a trip to fiji. The camera fit snuggly into the bag and sealed up easily with three grub screws. Camera can be turned on and off, and the buttons around the record button can all be operated but little else. The zoom toggle did not fit inside the little plastic bubble formed in the bag no matter how I tried to fit the camera in, and if you are not careful the bag 'grabs' at the toggle and you will find that the camera zooms all by itself. To prevent this I tapes the toggle on wide so that it didn't creep. The main issue with the bag is how to see what yu are doing. You can't have the view finder out at 90 degrees to the camera so your only options are to use the tiny viewfinder (everything looks soft by the time it passes through the bag and facemask), or flip the screen around and try and shoot sideways. Neither option really works well so I stuck with the tiny viewfinder left it wide and everything on auto. Hit as many as I missed but it was all a part of the adventure.
    The bag seems fairly generic in its design and includes 3 step down rings, one of which is too small for the HV30. This probably explains why the bubble is not over the zoom toggle.
    As a bonus the bag also fit my Pentax k10 with a bit of effort as one of the step down rings was the right size for its stock lens. I gave it an extra star for that.
    Never took it below a meter so can't rate it for its ability at depth.
