Note: the Recsea RX-100 and RX-100 II housings are pretty much identical

This housing is my first pro housing and I couldn't be happier. I am extremely perfectionist, and like things not only to work well but to look well. This housing achieves both. Buttons and controls are extremely easy to use and reliable. I have not had any issues since I got it a couple of months ago, and it's already been on two dive trips and plenty of local dives on the paradise island I live: Roatan. Highly recommended.
The products I bought from Bluewater photo are great. The advice (and comfort) I got from Bluewater photo is priceless. I can't say enough about the excellent advice I got from phone contacts with them.
Housing: I have owned several housings for DSLR (Canon) and several video housings (Sony), and I got tired of the weight and size needed for transport. My solution was to get the Sony RX-100 and a housing (I got the RX-100 ii). This camera and the Recsea housing I picked exceeded my expectations. I selected the Recsea over the Nauticam because I was pretty sure I would be most comfortable with its location and style of controls - especially the front port control ring. A friend has a Nauticam, and he is totally satisfied with its controls. We are both very satisfied with our choices. The Recsea housing is perfect for me. Great photos, really great video, easy use - and compact. I love it.
Lighting: For my interests (fish, corals in 50' depths), I first used my old Sea and Sea strobe (YS-110) especially for depths greater than 25', but quickly realized I could better use the terrific HD video options of the camera by using an LED video light. So, before the next outing, I called Bluewater Photo who helped me get an LED light (iTorch Venusian iii) that would supplement the YS-110 strobe for stills and would help with video. They helped me get one that worked very well and get all the mechanical connections that would be compatible with my existing strobe, and that was within my budget. The iTorch I got worked very well, but my dive buddy saw my video and light, and he got an iTorch that is the next step "up" from mine; so now I have a bit of light envy. Both video lights helped produce excellent still and video images. My light has a reduced light area, but almost always fit my video and still needs. We often shared lighting and got great shots from different angles.
Next steps: I'd like to get even better lighting into reef crevices and with better controlled shadows; so i will likely call again and get another LED video light. Without doubt, I'll call Bluewater Photo for help. And - I'll likely not use the YS-110 again.
I've had at least 3 different camera/housing combinations over the past few years, including Sea and Sea for a Canon DSLR and the Canon-made housing for the G12, but this Recsea housing for the Sony RX-100 II is by far the best one I've used. I especially like the control ring in the front of the camera. You can setup the camera so that the ring will control ISO or just about anything you like. Unlike some of the really bad shutter buttons on the Sea and Sea and Ikelite housings, the shutter trigger on the Recsea housing is smooth and I had very few misfires when trying to focus on a subject by pulling the shutter half way. All in all, I'm extremely happy with the housing.
After using this housing on a dozen dives, I must say I'm impressed with its high quality and easy functionality. What I really like about this housing/camera combo is that it works perfectly with the Bluewater wa-110/ wide-angle lens. The pictures come out nice and crisp without the massive edge/corner distortion of some fisheye lenses out there. There's no doubt a dslr in the hands of a seasoned pro will take better pictures than a regular Joe like me, but for anyone looking for a more compact point-and-shoot form that allows you to shoot nice high-quality photos, this housing is it. I slapped a Zagg screen protector on the monitor window for extra protection and look forward to many more dives with this great housing.
I bought the Recsea Sony RX 100 II housing last year. It was an excellent purchase. Strong, light, and very easy to use. I'm far from been an expert in underwater photo, but this housing together with the Sony digital camera, make taking underwater pictures very easy.
one thing that I like from this housing is the possibility of using wet lenses. This option allows you to change from a macro to a wide angle underwater....even in apnea, Like I do..
