Hey everyone,
I've settled on purchasing the Sea and Sea housing for my Canon Xti/400D. I have a 100mm macro (Canon) and a 10-20mm wide angle (Sigma). Which lens ports do I need?

Hit on the yellow Sea&Sea tab on the right of screen under "Sponsors" Then look at "system chart" for your housing. Those are what they recomend to work although there are probably other combinations that work, at least there are for Nikon.

Hi Mat,

For the 100mm macro you can use:

DX Macro Port Base+ DX Macro Port 50 or SX Extension Ring+ NX Custom Flat Port


For the Sigma 10-20mm you can use:

NX Fisheye Dome Port or SX Extension Ring+ NX Compact Dome Port

Hi Mat,

If you want some of the best ports made for Sea & Sea checkout these pages of the Athena site. They make ports for both Canon and Nikon users of the Sea & Sea housings.

Check out, http://reefphotovideo.com/ for price.

I uses both the macro ports and the dome ports for my Olympus/SeaTool housings and they are outstanding. The macro ports have the 67 mm threaded end so they can be used with an assortment of accessory lenses (+ diopters) and the Athena ring flash.

So Adorama emailed me after I ordered it and said since they have to special order everything it will be 10-14 days before it's shipped, and 5 days after that for it to get here. I leave for Honduras the 20th so that's cutting it pretty close. Any place I could get it from faster?

I would give Backscatter and Reefphoto a call.
Good luck,
Steve
