The 18-55 is a good lens to start with, but I would recommend getting a fisheye (or wideangle) lens. I shoot a Tokina 10-17 here in Denmark in similar conditions as yours. I get pretty good results, but you need to be very careful about how you light the subjects.

Controls are pretty straightforward, you can control all of the buttons and levers without any friction.

There comes a zoom sleeve with housing, which makes it possible to zoom underwater using a wheel located on the right side of the camera.

There s a quite cheap Ike housing for the 40D (which also fits the 50D) here http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=35484

Hello everyone,

I currently have G9 with underwater housing from canon. But I would love to put my 50D in underwater housing with 3-4 stops iso advance and with good lens another 2 stops.

Which lens should I use? I see/hear lot of people shoot with fish-eye lenses but I doubt if they work around here.(here is: the netherlands visible around 1-5m(at best) with lot of particals in the water)
I currently have 50 1.8 MK II(and 18-55 IS). I think it nice length for shooting fish or I am wrong?
Is it possible to use zoom/manual focus underwater?
How is control of 50D ikelite underwater house?(Or should consider a other housing(budget is a real issues))
Could one port house multiple lenses(not at same time of course)? Or do you need a different port for almost every lens?
As I have read/experience(g9) the advance of IS are less because the water does the same. Is this true?

A other thing I consider I getting external flash.

Please give me some advices.

Marc
