Turtle shot

07 April 2008 - 01:16 PM

Please help me critique this image of a turtle from Cozumel. I have edited using photoshop raw. What are your thoughts. This was my first trip with my newly housed Canon 20D with dual DS-125 strobes. Ironically, I am now shooting with a Nikon D300, as my 20D was stolen shortly after coming home from the trip.

Tokina 10-17 fisheye with Ike 8" dome port

10 March 2008 - 09:48 AM

I just got the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens for use with my D300 and Ike housing. I am using the Ike 8" dome #5510.45 with the super wide angle port body #5510.10. I am having a problem with being able to see the dome's shade in the corner of my pics. Here is an example

I am also having major trouble with securly attaching the super wide body to my housing. You have to turn it onto the port locks instead of just clicking down the port locks like other port bodies. Anyway my trouble comes while trying to carry my rig around. Twice while I have been holding it the dome has fallen off and hit the concrete. I had to carry it up and down a narrow stairway to enter Devils Den. When I turned my rig sideways so it would fit the whole port system fell off and hit the ground. Of course, now there a few scratches but I am really worried that this is going to keep hapening and break my port. Any advice?


Ikelite Housing for Canon D20 ??

01 December 2007 - 08:15 AM

I just received a new ikelite housing for my Canon D20. I just put the camera in the housing for the first time and can't seem to change the program control (not sure it is called this). Anyway I can't seem to change the camera from aperture priority to shutter priority while the camera is in the housing. Am I doing something wrong. The control that ikelite has made for this is just a round thing that sits on top of the control. It won't turn the thing. How do I get this control to work?
