  1. Dear fltekdiver, I think you should re-check your ebay information. The Canon T2i Ikelite Housing has never sold on ebay for $600.00. This is also known as a Canon 550D (international). This is a brand new Ikelite model and has likely not been listed on ebay much at all. This is not comparable to a 500D or any other Canon / Ikelite model. The Canon T2i has excellent low light focusing abilities and does full 1080p video too. The Canon T2i is most comparable to the Canon 7D model; yet less expensive. Shambala
  2. Mint / Excellent condition Ikelite housing for Canon T2i (6871.55) + Ikelite port for 60mm macro lens (port 5502). Asking $1,280.00 + shipping or best reasonable offer for this package. Housing only tested. Barely used. All warranty cards included in original manufacturer packaging. Pictures of equipment available upon request.
  3. Selling Ikelite Housing #6871.55 for Canon T2i / 550D with Ikelite port #5502 for Canon 60mm EF-S USM Macro lens for $1,340.00 (free shipping). Purchased new (approx. a month ago) and barely used. Mint condition. Warranty registration cards still blank with original boxes and materials. Please PM me with any questions.
  4. Dear Steve, How helpful will image stabilization be on the 100mm for a Canon T2i? The Canon EF-L IS 100mm vs the Canon 100mm EF-S? Thank you, David
  5. Will there be much of a sharpness difference between these lenses and the "L" series lenses by Canon? They are so expensive. David
  6. Also looking at: Canon 50mm F2.8 EF-S $422.00
  7. Was wondering what the most popular lenses are for using a Canon T2i underwater. I was looking at: Canon 50mm F1.8 for $119.00 Canon 50mm F1.4 for $359.00 Canon 50mm F1.2 for $1,449.00 Tonika 10-17mm for approximate $550.00 Not sure if "L" lenses are really necessary for sharpness for underwater photography. Are they that noticably different? Any oppinions on the best macro and wide angle lenses for a T2i would be greatly appreciated for Underwater use with an Aquatica housing (likely). Thank you!
  8. I was wondering whether someone with video experience could let me know whether they feel that a new Canon T2i or 7D can accomplish great underwater video (including close ups) as decently as a true HD video camcorder. I have heard that the Canon cameras cannot autofocus during video mode and that they recommend that everything be at least 2 feet away from the camera. Is it still possible to get great closeups with great focus from one of these DSLR's or must one go to a seperate video solution? Thank you, David
  9. Looking to buy a Canon Rebel T2i (I believe this is best for the price at this time). Trying to plan out the best solution for it. I have used Ikelite in the past but would like to consider the aquatica and sea&sea or Inon strobes. Only concern is possibly giving up on TTL and relying on optical fiber instead. Going shortly to Sulawesi and hope to not feel that my results there will be a waste. I'd greatly appreciate any advice from anyone who feels that they are getting great macro results. Thank you, David
