Very nice.


As a frequent flyer on the FeBrina I will agree that this boat is the BEST!!


Question, which wide angle lens were you using for the pelagic shots?

I always carry a spare low profile clamp. Lucky, too. My camera bag took a hit and when I pulled my housing out to set it up, one clamp was smashed. It was really easy to replace.


That said, I would use it with one clamp off, but I would be careful.

I've seen them in Komodo, but I've never seen one in PNG.

In Topic: Ikelite Canon 100D / Rebel SL1 : review ?

Just thought I'd share some surprising test shots taken with the Tamron 60mm F/2 Macro inside the dome port.


I was glad to see how well it functioned and allowed a lot of possibilities for shooting, ranging from medium shots to very close macro shots.

Taken with the SL1 in an Ikelite housings, with a YS-D1 connected via sync cord and S2000 triggered optically from the YS-D1.



Just curious.

The images you posted seem a bit soft. Is that a characteristic of the camera? I am considering this camera for travel as I am tired of lugging my full sized DSLR around the world. But I want to know that crisp and sharp photos are possible with this camera. I am very uneducated with this technology, as of now.


And, I am interested in when a dome will be available for the 10-17 without vignetting,as it is one of my favorite lenses.
