The Tokina is a great lens for Guadalupe. I've been to Guadalupe the past 5 years and by far the Tokina is the most common lens used on every trip. Although the sharks get close, you would not want to get any wider. I actually tend to drift closer to the 17mm side of the zoom. You'll enjoy the trip.

or jsut a thought what position do you have your switches inside your housing?



Strangely enough, my switches are 1-3 down and 4 up.  Strange because I don't recall that being a referenced setting or why I ended up with it.  Worked fine for me however.

Alastair -


I'm only guessing on this, but it could be your brand of strobes.  I did a quick search of the issue and found most D90 users were limited to 1/200.  I did find a post where a user was able to reach higher speeds land was using Sea & Sea strobes like myself.  He could only get 1/200 with an IKE housing and IKE strobes, but could go higher when he switched to S&S strobes.  


Since we have the same housing, that shouldn't be the issue.  I don't have anything setup unusual in my camera settings that I'm aware of.  I do use standard S&S sync cords versus optical.  


I can actually shoot higher than 1/250, but start getting the black banding at 1/320.  


Would be interesting if someone has access to both S&S and non-S&S strobes to see if that is the difference.

Steve - Thanks for the feedback.  I'll work on  the dorsal fin as soon as I find some time.
