Dear fellow underwater photographer,
I'm humbly asking you for your opinion, what's best to upgrade/add in my set-up based on your experience? What would you recommend?
I started with DiCaPac plastic flexible housings on standard compact (Canon Ixus), then advanced to DiCaPac for SLR and wrapped (while being worried) my beloved full-frame Sony A900. I managed to get some reasonable photos while snorkeling, that made me more into this area. Quickly after that my fiancee got DSC-RX100 (enthusiast level compact camera) so I decided to go for real housing this time - so our last vacation was covered by RX100 in Ikelite housing, wide angle (W30 ie. not fish-eye) and macro adapters. We tried diving for the first time during this vacation so it came handy (I wouldn't go deep with DiCaPac housing, the actually say 5 meters). On the other hand I encountered the limits of this set-up - the lack of light down there + the color cast.
What would you recommend as an accessory / accessories to Ikelite RX100? Color filter is for sure, but what handles and lights? Somethings, that's reasonable investment for beginners who go to diving once a year, yet they are interested in UW photography. Something with good bang to buck ration.
I'll appreciate any tips. I'm attaching my best shots made with mentioned RX100 so far.
