  1. At the moment I use a Canon IXUS alongside a couple of INON Bayonet lens and want to add a strobe to my setup to better light up my macro and WA. Alot of people I have spoken to say the Epqoue 230DS is a great strobe as is the YS27DX for compact setups. I am also looking at the YS110A as it can be used with a DSLR in the future unlike the other 2 strobes. I'd love to hear peoples opinions on these strobes and any advice they can give. THanks Si
  2. How do those lenses stand above the water? Are they just as useable?
  3. Thanks for all your replies. I've been doing some research and these eare what I have been looking at; Canon EOS 500D Ikleite housing for 500d - http://www.camerasunderwater.co.uk/ikelite/slr/eos450d.html Canon EF 50mm f2.5 Macro Lens + port Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens + port Ikelite DS160 strobe - http://www.camerasunderwater.co.uk/flash/ikelite/ds160.html I do honestly think I have taken some rather good composed shots over the last few years; I am always getting complimented on my photos by friends, but am pretty certain if I had a DSLR to use I would appreciate my work even more! Another reason I am thinking of going DSLR is because I'd like to learn more and become more technical. I'd like to have more options available to me and have better quality results i.e. better quality photos due to the larger censor and manual controls. Also, although I don't own a strobe I have used one in the past and if I dont go DSLR I'll be adding a S&S YS110 to my setup, maybe 2 if there is an advantage to having dual strobes on a p&s? Anyways, I'm off to Borneo in April for a few months, maybe even longer to work as in instructor so inbetween teaching I'd be diving and taking photos as this is where my main love lies so I am sure it would get use, although not sure how secure it would be there. Thanks Simon
  4. Hey everyone I am hoping a few opinions and views can help me decide on whether to upgrade my current setup to a DSLR or a new P&S. I currently use a Canon IXUS 950IS alongside INON macro and WA lenses. Most of the time I don't use the flash and just set manula white balance. I am thinking of buying an external strobe (S&S YS110) whatever I decide to do. What sort of DSLR's should I be looking at for a beginner and how much should I be looking at spending? Is it a big learning curve from P&S with manual white balance, aperture and shutter speeds? Attached are some of my photos over the last 2 years from Utila and Micronesia using my Canon IXUS; http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1848...mp;id=562084781 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1848...mp;id=562084781 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1848...mp;id=562084781 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3689...mp;id=562084781 I'd love to hear peoples advice and opinions. Many thanks Simon (UK)
