In Topic: Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 vs F4-5.6

I'd go with the older f/4-5.6 version for underwater. Save cash, it's smaller and lighter (like Grant said), and you'll likely not use it wide open (at f/3.5) underwater. But, if starscapes and indoor shooting interest you, then consider the f/3.5.

I'll chime in with the same preference as everyone above. Lightroom Classic CC as part of the photographer package (with Photoshop) is the way to go. Best practice is to store at least two copies of your raw files on external hard drives. Cloud storage is far too slow and not an option on most international dive trips.

 

 

There are also a few things to consider before jumping in, primarily file naming structure and organization of your library (folder structure). Many do this by year and location, but it's all personal preference. Erin Quigley is another great resource for Lightroom.

 

Good luck!

This is a bizarre one. Have you tried contacting the retailer where you bought your gear or even Ikelite directly?

Here's a link to a blog article on the way I break photo gear down into bags. Like some comments above, I also keep the toolkit in an old tupperware container. I'm personally not a fan of pelican cases for air travel carry-on since they're so heavy and you've got the gear on you at all times anyways.
