I'm planning on giving surf photography a go, for those weekends when the swell is too big to dive (and a bunch of surfer friends are bugging me to get out there with them). While I'm confident in the surf, doing it with a camera will be a new challenge!
My main questions are about equipment. I've got a 40D in an Aquatica housing. Is it a smart idea to be taking this into the surf? Or am I better off investing eventually in a surf housing? I'm guessing that these are lighter weight, and while don't have much of a depth rating, can still take a beating from waves?
The other question is which lens is the best bet? I'm guessing something wide or FE, so I might give my Tokina 11-16mm a go. Or is this another good reason to invest in a Tokina 10-17FE?
Any other advice, tips, would be fantastic!
