In Topic: Canon 5dS and 5DR

Are there any further reports and experiences of using the Canon 5DS and/or the 5DSR underwater please? I am planning some changes to my gear and this is a possibility but there is a dearth of information about its performance underwater.

In Topic: ReefNet Subsee adaptor

I have that set-up but mine has the o-ring. It grips well but, like you, I am still nervous. So I go along Elmer's route using elasticated cord attached to frequently changed, stout rubber bands round the lens (a cable tie sounds better).  The lanyard also attaches to the adapter so that if the whole lot comes off and takes a dive or more likely gets knocked off, it just hangs under the camera.  I don't like bits of lanyard around but in fact I never notice it once in the water and the peace of mind is well worth it.

Drilling a hole sounds a good idea if you are handy at that sort of thing but the mount seems pretty crappy material to me so take care.

Would love to see one of those. Well done given the conditions and your "flash" system

Me too. Nice pics, great macro site and good resort. Only downside for me was when I was trying to photograph harlequin shrimps, I saw out of the corner of my eye the dive guide saw off the arm of a blue starfish and plonk it in front of my lens as food for the shrimps. I was mortified.

To close this one down I can advise this has now been to Dr Helen Larson and she has given an ID of I. goldmanni. It is not a 100% ID however - she says "it looks more like I.goldmanni"
