MPK-AS3 for HDR-as100v, do i need the whole case or just front door?

Hi,

 

The HDR-AS100v comes with the SPK-AS2 waterproof case.

* First, why would u do waterproof case just for 5 meters (quite disapointed)

* second i did my homework and checked the alternative, which is buying the MPK-AS3 case seperatly, well i have few queastions for that:

1. i predict the flat lens will be an issue as i wont be able to keep it tight to my head while free diving, so i wonder why there is no wtaerproof case with rounded door for the same dept.

2. in case the MPK-AS3 flat lens is my only solution, do i need to buy the whole case or can i use the SPK-AS2 housing and just buy the  MPK-AS3 door and combine these 2.

 

thanks

The waterproof case which comes with the camera is an "allrounder.

You can submerge the camera if you need to (while kajaking or surfing) and also get good audio (due to the membrane in the front door).
Yet video below the surface won't be sharp at all.

There is no waterproof case with a round door, since your video is not sharp with a round door, due to the way water refracts lightwaves.

You need the whole housing, since the door mounts differently and so wouldn't fit the SPK-AS2.
