I finally bought a housing for my 20d and I wanted to share my experience.

I'm impressed with Ike's housing and the 8" dome it all looks and feels very nice.

The large dome is beautiful and performs great but it does seem a little easy to scratch. After 3 dives I'm already getting tiny scratches and I can't figure out why. Can sand particles in the water scratch an acrylic dome? I'll just have to get good at polishing that thing i guess.

I'm overall very pleased with the equipment and the results that I'm getting. I'm new to underwater photography and the only experience I have came from reading this board so I'd like to thank wetpixel for that. (I love my new softsided cooler turned gear bag)

Anyway these are my first shots, taken during some spare dive time over the last two days. I don't have any strobes yet so it's all available light.

Great shots Ryan, that's really excellent for being first shots. I am moving this topic to the galleries area where it will get more attention...

Aloha,
