    not necessarily true.

    Windows can deform if they are not thick enough in same way bodies can deform - either can lead to leakages or stress cracks over time.

    I made up a thicker rear window for my Nexus D200 housing for 200m. Body is fine

    Now I use a Amphibico VH2000 for my Sony camera and its rated to 100m. Took it deeper a couple of times and all went well.
    I have been pushing it a bit and the little window in the back starts to look grey and funny sub 110m. No leak yet though....
    On the last deepy my home made buoyancy device imploded with a bang and scared the shit out of me to say the least :)

    Any advice?

    Cheers

    Here is the smallest HD for 100m plus.
    And it happens to be for sale.

    Hi Roger.

    Throws a look here: http://www.easydive.eu

    They are guaranteed up to -200 meters. I'm using one of these for a year and I am very satisfied.

    Gates is definitely one of the deepest rated housings on the market. I am sure if you talk to a Gates dealer or Gates direct, it can be arranged to have the housing set up with stronger springs.

    One very important thing to consider is generally Glass ports have a shallower depth limit on them... i.e. the Gates standard port is only rated to 150 feet
