WP-N1 Waterproof Housing
Price is very economical
The previous reviewer may not understand what underwater camera housings cost. The list price for this one seems VERY reasonable. Most underwater housings for decent DSLRs cost $1600 and up (way up in many cases). The only slightly obnoxious thing is the 130 ft limitation, but since there is not much light deeper than than and diving gets very technical below that depth, this housing would be quite useful for not too much money.

I have used this on about 25 dives at this point and it is a great housing. To be concerned with the 130' "limitation" is ridiculous. I have been diving for over 15 years and have only gone below that a handful of times. For safe recreational diving limits it is more than ample. I like being able to access all of the features, including zoom, and have mine set up with 2 Sea & Sea YS-D1's on Sea Arm VII's. I was looking at a complete setup for my SLR's, but they were at least twice the price, and if the housing fails, I'm out far less money for a camera. I know there is a picture quality trade-off, but I'm still pretty new at taking UW photos.

Great Housing for a better Price!
decent package, as stated below the 130ft limitation is a bit of a downfall, but the fact that it is one of the only housings that you can get that has strobe capability is great, and at $800 its a steal for a good quality housing, considering the Ni-Mar housing is around $1800. basically any housing you buy will cost close to double or more of what the camera is worth, you can get cheap acrylic housings on eBay but they are poor quality and i wouldn't trust them past snorkeling. Very Happy with the housing, i have it paired with 2 Ike-lite strobes and tray.
i gave it 4/5 simply due to the depth limitation, its a 5/5 for everything else with full camera functionality, this really is a great camera for recreational diving!

is this a joke?
The Nikon j1 or j2 is price ranges from around $400-$700. The fact that the waterproof housing is more expensive than the camera is outrageous. The housing shouldn't be more than $200.
