I am going to False Bay, South Africa in a couple weeks and I will be cage diving one of the days while I am there. I was wondering what type of equipment I should bring to get some decent photos. I will not be doing any other diving and I want to take only what is absolutely necessary. What I have is a Canon G10 in an Ikelite house, a wide-angle conversion dome, and 2 strobes. Do I need the wide angle conversion dome or the strobes? Thanks for any help.
I am doing the same off of Guadalupe in Mexico in August. So, am investigating myself. I guess I have to post my own query as I have a D300. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

I found the 12-24 on a D100 to be the best lens. Gives you a little range and still goes wide if they come right up to the cage.
Life is a beach and then you dive.

Most all hardware and software is sent to me free of charge, however, in no way am I obligated to provide either positive or negative evaluations. Any suggestions I make regarding products are a result of my own, completely, personal opinions and experiences with said products.

there was a very good article in Underwater Photography magazine on white shark cage diving (from australia, but it still applies).
some of my pictures can be seen here if intested (shows the conditions you may encounter)
