Hi Folks!

Just wanted to share some of the shots I took during my recent trip to Anilao and had the chance to test out the new Canon G10. All were taken with G10, Canon housing with adapter, single Inon Z240 & lenses. All constructive comments are welcome. Thanks & Happy Viewing!

Awesome!

Any wet mounted lenses or just the camera and OEM housing?

Wonderful Pics! I am heading to Anilao and Tubbataha in April and am thinking the G10 will be my next purchase.

Two quick questions if I may;

Which adapter are you using with the OEM housing for your Inon Lens'?

What settings did you shoot the Ribbon Eel with!? If you do not wish to share, I understand - it is a great shot, and thanks for sharing!

Thanks for all the kind words, fellas... :deadhorse:

Phil - Yup! Was using the Inon UCL165M67 lenses...
Stephen - It's a new adapter, not in the market yet. I was testing it out, but should be out very soon. As for the Ribbon Eel, I shot it with 1/250 & F8. :huh:

Hehe... Thanks anyway!
Normally, I would take 2-3 shots if there are other divers around. However, I would spend a lil bit more time if I find the subject interesting... :)

Here's the adapter for the Canon G10 housing (WP-DC 28) by UWCa. It's a new adapter and due out in a few weeks time (according to the manufacturer).

Thanks Ed,

It is similar to the adapter I use for my G7.

I am planning on upgrading to the G10 before April, and am thinking the OEM housing will do just fine; though I am still considering Ikelite.

Can't wait to see some of the Wide Angle shots!
