  8. here are a few pics from my recent trip to the maldives. This, and a lot more can be found on www.scubablue.co.uk Any feedback would be welcome
  9. As another UK Canon user (300D) am i right in that the ETTL can be retrofitted to the Ike housing (just swop the backplates ?). Also am I right in assuming that if I convert to ETTL I can do away with the manual controller. Finally - will the existing DS125 to housing cable need replacing. Tha ETTL set up looks goooooooooood !!! - How much ?????
  10. Thanks for the help and advice. So - anyone any other views on the canon 50mm F2.5 versus the Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX ?? The Canon seems to get the most use and reviews from what I can see.
  11. Thanks NLAVD - based on that then I`ll be looking for a Canon 50mm F2.5 macro
  12. Thanks for the info. I currently have the kit lens (18 - 55mm) and the Ike 5503 domeport. can the above lenses be used inside this dome ?? If needs be I will get an altenative port anyway. I assume the 100mm lens is a bit more specialist because it is a zoom lens and the 50mm a fixed/prime lens ?? In reality, what do you need to do different with the 100mm - is it technique ???
  13. I am the proud owner of a 300D/Ike housing/DS125 setup. I am not a novice but neither am I an expert My next purchase will be a macro lens. Can you give recommendations on what you think would be the best for this set up, with pros and cons Thanks for your help !!!
  14. Now thats interesting - I took my DRebel out today for the first time and had exactly the same problem but it went after switching off then on again. Ike - I am based in the UK - do I have to send mine back to you (got it from Ryan) or will you replace via a UK distributer ?? I`ve only had mine 2 weeks !! - if I do not return for the upgrade will the `fault` damage either my DS125 or DRebel ???
  15. Interesting comment on Dive magazine (not to be confused with Diver. Dive magazine is a local BSAC publication as is thought of in some quarters to be old fashioned. Just goes to show you will never please everyone !!
