In Topic: Ikelite Type/Style Dome Covers?

Or check these out. http://www.lenscoat....arge-p-388.htmlI use an XXL on my 5" dome and it works great.  Covers the dome and shade ring nicely and folds over the back of the shade ring a bit.  I don't know if there biggest one will stretch over your 8" dome, but if it does, it's less than half the price of similar ones elsewhere.  I think I paid $64.95 more my Backscatter cover on my Sea & Sea fisheye dome.  They have theirs made locally and they are quite nice.

Have fun!  They come up on E-Bay US and GB quite frequently.

Looks like everything above f5.6 is brilliant.  Love the Gorgonian with the sunburst.  Not fond of the background blur with the 20mm, but I imagine that's the lens.

Until recently, all of the Olympus strobes were housed.  I had the little strobe they sold for my SP-350, and it worked beautifully in ttl or manual mode.  As someone else said, great for macro, but too narrow and too weak for wide angle.  I've also seen a bunch of DIY posts for Vivitar strobes, which are a dime a dozen.


Here's a DIY example:  http://eocean.free.f...be/indexstr.htm


Others have used pipe, but it's awfully big that way.

In Topic: Sigma EX 17-35 F2.8-4.0 for full frame?

Terrific.  Thanks for the help.  I got the non HSM version, which is a bit smaller and fits fine in my dome.  It looks like the Sigma 10-20 gear might be close.  Otherwise, I have a spare Sea & Sea 60mm gear that I could alter or make a mold and build one out of resin.  I'm looking forward to trying it on my F100 as the widest lens I had for full frame was my 35mm f2.0.  One thing I really like about the lens is that it zooms inward for both ends of the range and the center area is only about 1/4" different.  In reading reviews, people complained a bit about sharpness and contrast so we'll have to see.
