Wide angle for 1D Mk2

06 October 2005 - 08:07 PM

I will shortly be getting a Subal housing and setup for my 1D2 (and in a few months a 1DS2). I have macro covered, but I need some suggestions on wide angle options. I don't know what lenses are wide enough for UW use. I was thinking either the Sigma 20 1.8 or the Canon 24 1.4 for primes and possibly the 16-35 2.8. I have heard serious conflicting reports on the quaility of the zoom, so that's my last choice. I know there is a huge difference in price, but lets not worry about that. Also if there is anything else that I'm missing let me know.


UW setup for 1D2

22 August 2005 - 04:04 PM

I'm starting to figure out a setup for my 1D2 and eventually a 1Ds2 and I don't know too much about some of the top of the line housings. I am considering either the Subal system or the Seacam system. Has anyone used either one, and what would be the difference in operation between these two systems? I know that the Seacam is a little more expensive, but if its decidedly better I have no problem spending the extra money.

The lenses I plan on using are the 100 macro and 17-40. Also if I can use the same port, I am considering the 15mm fisheye. Any experience here?

Strobes are something I know little about as well. I have use DS-125s in the past and they were good but not great. I was thinking about Inon strobes, but have no idea what models are highly regarded or any other manufacturers that are good.

This is probably the last UW housing setup I will buy for many years with the capabilities of the 1Ds2, so I want to do this right. I am moving to Fl so I will get a lot of use out of this housing and want it to be as good as possible. Thanks so much for answering my many questions.
