Topics I've Started

Move to Micro Four Thirds or continue with D80 UW

04 March 2015 - 04:25 AM

I've been shooting my Nikon D80 underwater for 6 years.  Ikelite Housing, Ikelite DS160 Substrobe, Nikon 18-55 lens, Ikelite zoom ring.  No macro.  No WA.  All purchased used.  Shoot my D300 topside.


All my 500+ dives are in Bonaire.


I'm going to Indonesia for muck diving and Komodo in September.  Not looking forward to traveling with the D80 UW gear.  What to do?  I tired of my first UW setup (Canon G9, Ikelite housing, Sea and Sea YS110 manual strobes) due to the LCD instead of viewfinder and the delay for writing to SD cards.


What cameras/housings should I consider?  What do I lose (besides bulk and weight) by going to Mirrorless?  What do I gain?


Any suggestions to get me pointed in the right direction would be great.
