Hi, I am new here. Hopefully I won't get bumped off. I am new to underwater photography but I am having a lot of fun and luck commercially with it due to my niche- shooting fish for fishing mags. I am a writer, member of The Outdoor Writer's Association of America, contributor to a lot of fishing mags, and angler. Simon Spear knows me- he helped me witha DVD I produced awhile back by allowing me to use some of his amberjack footage. I recently decided to concentrate on shooting instead as it affords me the ability to travel a lot. Since I am not SCUBA certified and I am going mainly for fish that are already on the line, close to the surface, I am using surf housings. I thought about getting a dive housing but I also do a lot of shooting where I am looking up at the people in the boat from the water, and lugging around an 8+ pound housing for that isn't appealing just yet, though in the future I see myself moving in that direction- SCUBA that is.

Anyway, I started out with a SPL housing for my D300. I like it a lot, and have gotten mag covers with it and a lot of great shots, but I want to go with the FX format and a D700. I want the ability to use higher ISO's , and I need to do this as I am not using a strong strobe, the action is quick, so I need shutter speeds over 1/250, and so on.

If anyone is interested in the housing, it's only 4 months old and has probably less than 10 hours use. I can send you a link, I don't know if it's cool to post the ebay link here. Trust me, I will be back!

Can you tell me a little more about the housing?

What is included? Any ports, what kind of handle? Can you use the on camera flash? any synch connections etc??

I am in the market for a surf housing and I already own one D300.

Thanks!
