Sea & Sea Dome Ports

28 October 2007 - 03:23 PM

I have a DX-D50 housing and am looking to buy a dome port. I will purchase one of the acrylic ports, either the Fisheye or Compact Dome. What are the pros and cons of each?

Will a Sea & Sea YS 90DX strobe work with a Seas & Sea DX-D70 housing?

Guidance Please

I've never taken an underwater picture, but would like to start. Instead of taking the plunge, I was considering just getting my feet wet and purchasing a older used film housing to play with. I've read several of the post, including the one "Am I crazy to think about film" and it appears that most members of this forum think a newbie should start with Digital. Having said that, this is my thought. I was thinking I could pickup a Sea & Sea NX90 housing relatively cheap (couple of hundred dollars) and start with that. It is my understanding (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that most of the components I would purchase, including ports and strobes could later be used with a digital Sea & Sea housing. In this manner, I could learn about the equipment without damaging a more expensive digital and use excess funds to purchase lenses. Does this make any sense?
