  1. I'm interested in the nikon d300 and the housing. How much would it be to ship to USA?
  2. Who did you buy your insurance thru? I'm going in November and need to do this
  3. Also I feel like such an idiot, when I read "set your camera to manual" I immediately thought use my manual lenses. I have a couple zeiss manuals that I use from time to time
  4. What housing and strobes did you use? Also thanks for the Tokina tip, what kind of dome did you have also?
  5. I haven't been able to find exactly what I'm looking for but here's my question. I've decided to get a Nikon D300 as my underwater camera. I want to use a Tokina fish eye or Nikon 17-24mm I've been reading a lot of articles about how to get the best shots and the ones I've read all say shoot in manual mode. The articles suggest ISO 100/200, F8 and up and then toggle with your shutter speed and then shoot away. My question becomes how do I then adjust the focus of the lens? Am I not thinking about this correctly or is there something I'm missing?
  6. Thanks for the tips.... One question, have you found it easy to switch from photo to video underwater?
  7. I am going on a trip to Costa Rica and plan on diving Bat Island for a couple days, I a researching setups and wonder should i do strictly video and then freeze frame a still or should i do photos? I haven't purchased anything yet, i am trying to decide if i want to get something with 4k video or should i get a good camera with 1080p 120fps. i feel like video would give me the best of both worlds. anyone has any suggestions?
  8. Hi New here, been looking for how to post for 6 days now. Hit the contact us that took me to the forum for how to post. I have done underwater photography before, my first experience was in PR with a kodak disposable underwater camera (the photos were HORRIBLE) the second was in St Lucia with a GoPro, it was cool but i still feel like i missed out on great photos. My next try will be with an underwater setup that i am still looking to buy.
