In Topic: New here, what gear will I need?

thanks for the responses. my wife wanted another body anyways, so maybe i will pick up a d7000 and a housing, and leave the d300 topside for stills. so i guess a d7000, an ikelite, a dome, and a wide angle? i have a tokina 11-16 f2.8. will this lens work?

hello i'm new here. hoping to find info on what setup to buy. i currently have a nikon d300 and a bunch of glass. i have never shot underwater except with gopros and PNS's.

i am looking for a camera and a housing. but this is the catch. i have no interest in shooting deep underwater, reefs, macro, etc.

what i want to shoot are half in and out shots, as well as pics of our sportfishing. which would all be near the surface. i also want to shoot dslr video. i was planning on getting a d800 (for a non-underwater camera upgrade). but a d800 and a housing are both a lot of money and not quite generally available yet.

i am wondering if anybody has suggestions. i was thinking an underwater housing for my d300 may be better bang for my buck. but i was worried my d300 is getting obsolete now, and has no video.


thanks
