Introduction: UnderWater Camera Housing
Build an inexpensive Underwater Camera Housing for a DVD recorder.
Step 1: Step 1
First you will need materials. Most of the materials can be purchased localy at a hardware store. I got mine at home depot, But I had to order the ACRYLIC LENS online.
1)4" PVC PIPE (about 6" long,but it depends on your Camera.)
5)1/2" CLEAR ACRYLIC. I got mine online at tp://www.freckleface.com/. I was unable to find it localy, But I bet it would be cheaper.
6) 4" to 3" converter for lens area.
8)SOME SORT OF WATERPROOF CAULKING.
Step 2: Step 2
CONNECT THE THREADED JOINT TO THE CORRECT LANTH OF PVC PIPE WITH THE PVC CEMENT.
Step 3: Step 3
CUT THE ACRYLIC TO HE RIGHT DIAMITER AND SLIDE INTO THE 4" TO 3" CONVERTER.THE LENS SHOULD BE INSIDE THE 4" PART UP AGAINST RIDGE. AFTER IT DRIES PUT SOME CAULKING ON THE INSIDE EDGE.
Step 4: Step 4
CONNECT THE CONVERTER WITH THE LENS IN IT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PVC.
SORRY ABOUT THE PICTURE QUALITY.
Step 5: Step 5
PUT SOME PUTTY ON THE THREADS OF THE PVC JOINT. MAKE SURE THE PUTTY IS EVENLY SPREAD.
Step 6: Step 6
YOU ARE READY TO GO! I TESTED MINE A LOT BEFORE PUTTING MY CAMERA IN IT AND I AM UNSURE HOW DEEP IT WILL GO.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
