I'm expecting to buy some new kit as I really don't want to get a housing for my 7D - so I'm leaning towards M4/3rds, although a G11/12 in a Canon housing is a possibility. I'm thinking one of the Olympus Pens plus Oly housing. I don't understand the 'dome' aspect. I'm thinking that for Humpbacks I'm gonna need a decent wide angle. Thanks in advance everyone.

I am Russell from Philadelphia PA. Just had two dive trips where I was unable to bring my camera due to a faulty strobe :-(. Unfortunately Ikelite did not want to repair due to age, and i am not in the posistion to upgrade right now.
I have a trip coming up in a month so i hope to be able to service the strobe myself, with help from you all!

I'm from NJ and own a dive shop here. I have been shooting a g10 but recently upgraded to a 5d mark2. I have been bouncing around this site for a while now and figured I'd join in the dialog. Happy to e here.

I've just registered her and would like to write "hallo" from Gdynia, Poland.
I'm not a diver but love to snorkel and I hope to find some useful tips here regarding taking pictures (and making movies) of underwater creatures...
Best regards, Bartek

I try to make nice photos, but it isn't so easy. I'm legally blind, i only have 8 percent of my sight.
I hope i can learn a lot on the forum.

Just joined the forum - But its not for a happy reason I'm afraid - I loved underwater photography and even had a few whale shark shots published in SHARKDIVER MAGAZINE, but lately work and life stuff has been overwhelming - SO I really signed up to try and list my Ikelite D50 rig and strobe.
Its been a fun run but time to pass this stuff on to someone who will give it more use that I can I have browsed the forums silently for a while and have enjoyed the site, - - which I can still do even though I wont be shooting anymore!

My name is Jens and I just signed up here because many told me this is a good way to advertise some used gear that I'd like to sell (a complete FIX G10 setup). I want to sell that because I finally decided to get an Nauticam 7D housing. Alas, before I can post I need to reply to a thread first, and that's what I do now
This link is broken: We recommend introducing yourself as a reply to this post. (Any admin out there can look into this? Cheers!)
Anyway, I've been diving for more than 11 years now, and I'm currently PADI MSDT certified. Got CMAS certified in mid December in Germany and we actually had to poke holes into a thin layer of ice. Then I moved to Australia for a couple of years before I ended up in Seattle about seven years ago; that's where I still live and dive most of the time. Although I do travel _a_lot_ and dive all over the world. We've got a small group of people here, all obsessed with photography, and we spend heaps of (long) weekends diving all over Vancouver Island or the Northern Puget Sound.
(Canon 7D, Nauticam, 10-17/17-40/100mm lens, luck)
