Thanks for the information. I found this:

It looks to be a perfect solution and is relatively inexpensive. Everyone in the water will be able to hear it including divers and actors. I really just need something simple and reliable so everyone can hear action, cut, and direction from the director.

This actually looks like a great idea:

Any idea what they are using?

Why is lens speed irrelevant underwater?

Thanks for all the help everyone. I feel like a fish out of water with this underwater stuff! I had a choice between Steadicam or underwater as a specialty and I picked the water so now you guys are stuck with me.

I actually got an email from Jean at Aquatica and he said the 35L will take the same extension as the 24L but he didn't know about the 50L. He said the 50 would probably work without an extension but would probably show a slight improvement in the corners with the extension.

I have all the gear ordered and have an extensive pool test scheduled in two weeks. I will be testing with focus charts and real people so it should be a good mix. I will be happy to report my findings.

OK sorry but this seems a little strange to me. I want to make sure I fully understand before I drop a lot of money on the wrong things..

With a dome I focus on the glass of the dome and everything is always in focus? I can move around all I want without having to rack focus to anything?

For the 50L and longer lenses I should be looking at the flat ports? Aquatica calls these macro ports but they will work for non-macro applications right?

Would this work for the 50?
