It looks like "fast talking with the significant other" is back on the menu...

This is one nice housing. Here's hoping, as used to be said in another forum, "chicks dig cast aluminIUm".

Now I just need a chance to get it in the water
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

This is indeed the best housing I've ever used. I was thinking about making the move to digital and selling mine, but changed my mind. The sale price now is so bad that I will keep mine for another two years until it pays itself, and then buy a digital to be my backup.

Have fun! And try some Fuji slide film, I love Provia 100F for fish pictures.

I should probably take the "avowed lover of E100VS" out of my profile, I have been using Provia 100F heavily for the last year, usually shooting about 4 rolls of provia to every one of E100VS... I haven't been doing much in the way of fish portrait work in a long time though, mainly wideangle, for which I prefer the Provia's handling of blues to E100VS anyway.

I had a look at your fish portraiture shots, very nice work.

I'm finding that the newer print films can deliver pretty good color saturation and grain structure. When I ran out of Velvia 100F I bought some Fuji Superia 200. I love the extra speed and with a wider lattitude I don't have to bracket exposures.

Enjoy the new housing.
