  1. Do you still have the Subal viewfinder?
  2. Jake, Is the Light and Motion and Sony XR550 still available? Joe
  3. I was hoping it might have the gs180 viewfinder

      The GS180 viewfinder new is well over a thousand dollars, but with luck you can find a used one for about $500.   The standard viewfinder on this housing is over $200 new, so just it alone pays for the entire assembly.  This housing can be used underwater as it is, just add the camera and lens, readily available on eBay.  Or it can be used for spare parts, either way it pays for itself.    
      Cheers,  Elias

      Thanks - yes.  I realize their cost.  I haven't shot a 20D for a long time - really was just interested in the viewfinder. 

  4. Do you still have this for sale? Which viewfinder does it have?
  5. I've got lights but might be interested in the camera and housing. What would you take for them without the lights? Cheers, Joe
  6. Wanted, light and motion housing for canon g10, g20
  7. I am interested in the housing if it is still available. Has it ever been flooded? you can email me direct at joerob123@gmail.com
  8. How hard is it to add it to the housing? does it just slide it and lock with a c ring like the regular viewfinder or is it something that Ryan needs to do in his shop?
  9. Would you be interested in selling the remote control external monitor seperately?? joerobi@swbell.net
  10. I have already purchased a double cabin on the Galapagos Agressor and the flights from Ecuador to the Galapagos Aggressor beginning Aug 2. Unfortunately, I have had something come up and my wife and I will not be able to make it. I am willing to sell this package for 75% of the normal price. If interested please drop me an email at joerobi@swbell.net Thanks, Joe
  11. I am back from two trips with the new camera setup = the first trip was to Cozumel and was really a shake out trip - especially given the currents on this particular trip. Macro was useless but I did manage to get quite a few good wide angle shots with the 15mm fisheye. The second trip was to Roatan and I am sure because of the first trip I faired much better. I love the setup - even though it is significantly more complicated than my old 4040 - the photos are awesome. I hope to download some in the next week or so but just wanted to thank everyone for the tips and report in. The 100mm macro was great although I discovered what I had learned on a photo workshop on the agressor last year about macro lenses is true. I had to be stationary - even trying to be buyount hanging out over a subject in no current resulted in perceptible lens movement. When I was able to anchor myself to the sand around my subject - the results were much, much better. Just love the camera and the Ikelite setup. Headed to Turks and Caicos in July for a photo workshop on the Agressor and can't wait.
  12. I am trying to figure out the best way to have the copyright info displayed on the lower part of my photos. I have Photoshop CS but can't figure out how to do this in Photoshop. Or is it an embedded file in the photo? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Thanks for all the input. I will have time to test it in the pool and know from my previous setup how much that helped. I appreciate the info and will try the macro first and then the wide angle. From what I can interpret I would do well to concentrate on those two and leave the 28-75mm out altogether. I'll let everyone know how it goes on my return.
  14. I have been shooting with a Olympus 4040 in an Olympus housing with a Sea&Sea YS90DX for about two years now. I have just upgraded to a new Canon 20D in an Ikelite housing with 2 Ikelite DS-125 Strobes. I have three lenses - A Canon EF 15mm f/2.8; a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro and a Tamron AF 28-75mm XR DI lens. I am heading to Cozumel on Monday for my first fling with the setup and have been reading the posts here for some time. I guess my question is this: After shooting with a fixed lens camera for a while - learning the nuances of the DSLR and new setup will take some learning - I just wondered if anyone had any general settings that seem to work for them to get started or any general suggestions that might cut down the learning curve. I have been shooting with the camera a lot on land to get familiar with it. My thought was to start off with the Tamron for the first couple of dives and then progress to the Canon 15mm and then if things are working and the currents aren't too bad - spend some time with the Macro.
  15. I am confused by two divergent messages I have read regarding the settings for my Olymus 4040 and my new YS90DX. One message indicated I should set the camera to fill flash, strobe to Pre and Slave. The other message indicated fill flash strobe to on and Slave. Can anyone shed some light (no pun intended) Thanks
