  1. Thanks for the responses. I looked into the suggestion (heard it from several sources) and was ultimatly led to believe that stacking close up lens diopters (akin to filters) made for above water photography posed several potential issues (i) since they are single lenses, the chromatic distorions would be significant, (ii) since all of the elements come in direct contact with the water, their efficacy would be reduce by close to 67%, and (ii) since there are no holes in the individual components, I run the risk of pressure squeezes (and, accordingly, damage to the lens and housing). I would love to hear others' thoughts on this. Based on the above, I am now considering the Inon 67M (with the option of stacking two of them) or the SubSee (not sure if I should get the +5, +10 or both). Any pros and cons of the two (or other suggestions) woud be helpful. Thanks.
  2. I own a Canon G9 with an Ikelite housing. I would like to start taking macro photos. I have received conflicting advice between using stacked Inon 165M lenses or plain diopters. Any input on the pros and cons of the various options would be very helpful. Thanks.
  3. Thanks to all for the help and advice - the suggestions worked (and helped salvage the rest of my vacation dive photos). I am still trying to figure out how to upload pictures from my hard drive to these forums - the prompt keeps asking for a URL - do I need to upload them to a web page first or can I upload directly from my PC's "C" drive?
  4. I have used both the underwater setting as well as the custom white balance, i.e., I set the white balance at depth by focusing on a piece of white plastic.
  5. Thanks for the responses. I am not using any filters - just the camera in the housing with a deflector and the strobe with a diffuser. I am trying to upload some images from my hard drive, but can't figure out how to do it.
  6. I am new to underwater photography and am a bit frustrated with my flash. I am diving with a Canon G9 in an Ikelite housing with an Ikelite D125 strobe. Most of the pictures taken with the strobe have a very rd/pink hue to them (I have tried setting on TTL, Full, 1/2, etc/ - all the same result). When I take several shots of the same subject, those without the flash have better color distinction than those with the flash (which are mostly red). Any help/suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.
  7. Can anyone recommend a good hotel in Curacao? One of the divers is relatively new and would like the comfort of a quality dive operation on site.
  8. I am considering which strobe to get for a Canon G9 with an Ikelite housing. The DS 51 is much cheaper than the DS 125. Is the DS 125 far superior and worth the additional money? What issues/shortcomings would I face using the 51 instead of the 125? Are there any other manufacturer's strobes that are less expensive that would serve me well? If I were to get the Canon OEM housing with the G9, would anyone recommend a different strobe?
  9. I am new to underwater photography and am considering purchasing a Canon G9 with an Ikelite housing. The Ikelite website indicates that the housing permits accessability to all camera functions except continuous shooting and self timer. Should I be concerned not having accessability to the continuous shooting function? Does anyone know if the Canon OEM housing provides accessability to the continuous shooting function?
  10. I am new to underwater photography and am considering purchasing a Canon G9 with an Ikelite housing. On the Ikelite website it indicates that all camera functions are accessable except for continuous shooting and self-timer. Should I be concerned with not having the ability to access the continuous shooting function? Does anyone know if the Canon OEM housing permits continuous shooting functionality?
