SPK-HCB Underwater Housing

I'm considering the purchase of one of Sony's compact HD cameras (HDR-SR10, HDR-SR11 for example). I would be purchasing it specifically for he HCB housing that I already own. Does anyone know of any current hard drive based cameras that will definitely work with it?

What do you recommend?

Carlos,

Thanks for the info - surprisingly, the website description is not as updated as the PDF. Sadly, a lot of the newest models are not listed. I have to wonder if that too is a bit out of date or if it just doesn't work with them.

I think I'll take the housing to my local Best Buy or other retailer and try it out.

SR11 fits the HCB fine with the "C" (IIRC) sled. Don't know about the SR10, but it should be workable as well

Perfect! Thanks, Dave, that's what I was looking for! I'm planning to purchase the SR11.
