Any suggestions/recommendations for a housing for a Canon 5D?


Hi there,

Did you ever decide on a housing? After a lot of research I am about to buy the Ikelite for my 5dMII. It seems that no housing gets away with a completely unblemished record, and my understanding is that most floods are diver error, but the diver may tend to blame the housing anyway :rolleyes:. The pro photogs that I've spoken to who chose Ikelite chose to do so because they are durable and affordable, both of which I'm looking for, and the apparent bonus of seeing any leaks through the clear plastic.

I will be shooting video as well as stills, and am trying to determine if it really is worth it to get the DS161 strobes over the DS51, and if so, are two necessary? I've heard both. Any input from all fellow Ikelite divers would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Kate
