In Topic: Complete Canon 20D DSLR Setup w/Subal Housings

I'm interested in Canon 10-22mm EF-S wide angle zoom lens. What's your price for that?


This setup includes a flat port for the Canon 100mm macro lens. No extension ring is necessary. A domeport for the 10-22mm Canon zoom is also included. A domeport is necessary for the 10-22mm.

In Topic: Lenses for Cocos and Galapagos

I've used the Canon 10-22 on a 20D in my Subal housing on trips to Cocos and Galapagos. I got plenty of good stuff and had no cpmplaints. However, I was shooting a lot at the 22mm end of the zoom range, and I think a 16-35mm would likely be a sligtly better choice in many of the shooting situations. You're still going to need to be in fairly close range to light up big animals like hammerheads. Thus, I think anything longer than 35mm (on a crop sensor camera) would be problematic for me.

I just returned from flying SQ from LAX to Bali, via SIN. I checked two bags, each under 50lbs. I carried aboard a backpack (with camera bodies and lenses) and a briefcase (with computer), without difficulty. This combination also worked from Austin to LAX on American Airlines. I checked the bags in Austin through to Denpasar, but AA weighed them at the counter in Austin. I was in first class on a frequent flyer ticket, so there was no penalty for a second checked bag.
In the past, I had always checked two 70-pound bags on Asia trips and the US carriers permitted this without penalty since I was connecting to the international carrier that permitted two 70-pound items. Most international carriers now permit two 50-pound bags, rather than the 70lbs. SIN is consistent with the rest.
This time, I had to ditch my 30-pound Storm case (for photo gear). Instead, I checked the unbreakable UW photo gear in smaller, semi-rigid bag, and carried on cameras and lenses. Also had to ditch a lot of redundant photo and dive gear I had previously carried for backup. This was how I got rid of 40 pounds.
Remember that you may always catch a break from an airline counter employee, but you can't count on it ... especially if you are dealing with multiple airlines. Otherwise, just be prepared to pay the extra charges for extra pieces or weight, and hope for some good luck!

In Topic: Which Canon Macro Lens?

I have both lenses and usually go for the 100mm macro. It's much preferred, by me, to get the really small stuff ... especially skittish creatures. I just returned from Bali (Tulamben and Menjangan) and used the 100mm for all macro stuff. No complaints.

If you still have it I was interested in the underwater parts... I have a 10-22mm lenses and the camera. Can I buy another port extender or something to use the macro port with my 100mm canon macro?
