I thought I responded to this but apparently not so here goew again, Joe.TW, god to hear from you today on the phone.

No one makes one yet that I know of that's trustworthy because we've been looking. Ikelite, the most trusted name in U/W photography only has one for the H1 and 10. Your best bet, if you're in a bind, is the ewa marine soft case but I won't trust our equipment to it; not because it's poor workmanship but because because it's a soft bag and its succeptible to tears. Underwater, rocks, coral and just about everything else is a threat that might not be topside, especially metal which disintegrates to reveal jagged, shap edges. If anyone hears of one, though, please post it. Alot of divers will be indebted to you. If you're in a bind though Joe, go to ewa-marine.com/english/camcorder/e-tv171.htm for the soft bag one. Good luck.

Hi Joe, i've been reserching about it for long time. Apparently, the only brand could make it is Equinox, very reliable housings, not like Gates, but so far the only choice you have. Keep in mind that brings the hd 100 underwater will be a challenge (if you just think about pulling focus). Any advice you need let me know.
