In Topic: Newbie Rigs: What camera system did you buy?

29 October 2008 - 01:15 PM

Hi everybody, right now Im in this same moment

I will thank your opinion about a camera and housing I would like to buy as my first underwater photo equipment.


Im planning to purchase the Olympus E-520 with the Olympus PT-E03 housing. Is it ok? Should I think in other housing?

Even though I have some knowledge in photography, I am a complete novice in underwater photo, and since I thinking to buy lenses and strobe as well, I would appreciate your opinion on what is best.

Olympus offers the UFL-2 underwater strobe. Should I buy that or other? Regarding lenses I would like to have at least a 50 mm macro and a fisheye. What would you recommend?

Do these lenses need some accessories in order to be used with the PT-E03 housing?

Im in desperate need, so any tip, help, suggestion will be more than welcome.

Thanks in advanced.
