  1. wow! thnx for the advice! that bundle's price is just great! that's exactly what i want!!!
  2. hmmmm... getting crazy i wish i could afford to test these units and compare but they aren't available in a shop in Mauritius! .... LX-5 is the better one of the 3 with an UW housing of $600 :/ almost twice it's price .. is it really worth the extra ? + i don't know if it's worth mentioning.. but i don't really care about portability .. whether they are compact or not.. i just want the best product for the price ... and they are all in the price range i am willing to pay.. compact is not a major +
  3. i didn't decide to avoid the Ys-110 only because of that !!! it's more expensive too! and S-2000 has been recommended to others too! that is why i am avoiding it
  4. Ok here is my shortlist Canon S95 with Ikelite housing - total to around $675 from what i've researched Panasonic LX-5 + Ikelite housing - total to around $970 Olympus XZ-1 + oly housing - Total to around $705 Should i conclude with the S95 ? it's cheaper and have read some good comments about it... Thank you everyone for helping! i wish i manage to decide 1 between these 3 and for strobe.. i'll go for an Inon S-2000 and i prefer macro shots... i'll see what macro lens i can add on to that
  5. ok.. avoiding the YS-110A hmmm thanks
  6. hmm thanks for all the advice.. some people are also recommending the Canon S95 over these 2 :/ my shortlist for camera is the only problem actually for the strobe.. i'm thinking about the Inon S2000 or the S&S YS110a ... that will be an upgrade as soon as i believe i can progress if i'm a total noob at this.. i'm not gonna invest more
  7. the casing for the XZ-1 is just 211$ on amazon... that would make my set cheaper than going for the LX5 but now i've taken a liking to the LX 5 camera + housing for XZ-1 around $650 camera + housing for LX-5 around $950 ps... i love close up shots... my budget can extend to the $900... but.. is it worth ?:/
  8. ok i've been comparing a bit.. can i allow myself to ask these questions about these 2 Based on many reviews and comparisons on the net.. the LX5 is better... but the lens of the XZ1 itself appear to be much bigger and impressive! ok ok.. no more questions abt that one.. the LX5 is better based on many reviews on that ! which casing to get for the LX5? :/ their UW case looks expensive .. the camera itself is $369 .. very nice price! UW case.. only the ikelite? :/ sold around $600! that's expensive :/ what lens / strobe is totally necessary add on?
  9. alright! i'm unfortunately not wealthy and still young to be able to afford these full sets.. one part at a time maybe if i do get more passionate about this.. but the moment it's just a coincidence that all my cameras are dead.. so i need a new one for land and uw. i'll be checking up more comparisons between the XZ-1 and LX-5 ... they are in my shortlist or... i don't know.. this is complicated :/
  10. ill be looking into both these models.. thanks a lot
  11. This is just what i want to achieve.. Mamel! the pics look clear and good ! can you please tell me the whole set your daughter used for these pics ? I'd just get all that
  12. Thanks a lot for all that info!! That really helped!!! i'll start looking into those brands.. and go on that path Thanks a lot TomR1
  13. haha ok! if i do go for the G11 i'll get the lens But for the moment... i'm still reading! all those models and soooooo much differences between them ... it's hard choosing cam + casing !
  14. totally agree with you Johnjvv ... but the thing is... i want to minimize my investments in the future on that.. so looking to get a camera that just provide options for Wide angle or Fish eye modes in their settings... i am trying to minimize my spending on the set as i do not dive that often... it's just a must for me to be able to dive though.. i won't dive without a cam...
