I have recently purchased an olympus c8080 with ikelite housing for a trip abroad. When I try to take photos in the housing sometimes the photo takes and other times it doesnt. When it appears to be working ok, if I alter the zoom or something this often then causes the camera to stop taking photos. Has anytone else had this problem and is it just a contact problem between the housing and camera?

Make sure that pressure is not on the zoom control - if it is the shutter won't fire.

As has been said make shure when u use the zoom you turn it back to the centre position. Ps I have had an 8080 for a while now and I rarely use the zoom.

I have a 5060.. same issue.. it is the zoom.. do not have it in the closet position.. go close rather than use the zoom.. that is what I can recommend..
