  1. I've setup and used the Ikelite Housing with the Coolpix 5000 but the strobe is on backorder. I should hopefuilly have it in two weeks or less and I"ll let ya know how that works out. So far I love the camera and the housing both. jeff
  2. I currently have the Ikelite 6190 housing for the Nikon CP 5000. I bought it with the optional dome port to fit the Nikon wide angle lens. What Macro lens would be best for this setup? Is there such a thing as a macro lens that would snap on to the outside of the dome port and work with the wide angle lens or would I need to surface and refit the system for one or the other? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Jeff
  3. Hello all, First off I'd like to thank everyone who helps out with all the highly enlightening posts and answers for lots of problems some of us less educated and experienced folks don't have a clue on. I've found this forum site probably the best place for up to date information available anywhere. WIth lots of research and lots of time spent here reading just about every topics I could find, I"ve now decided on what to buy and have been buying up everything I needed for the setup. At this point I've order the Nikon CP 5000 and am going to order the Ikelite 6190 housing and a DS-125 strobe for starters. About the last question I have (for now anyways:D), which do you think would work better with this camera in an Ike housing the Sync cord or go with the Sensor that comes with most of the DS-125 packages? Thanks again and happy diving. Jeff
  4. Thanks TJO but I think I'm really leaning toward stills since I have a inkling of perhaps publishing something in the future. Video also seems like it would be good for example to tape a tourists first dive and charge an arm and a leg for the final tape I"m still not positive, but I'll bet I'll end up doing both in no time. As a final side note, what do you think of the Sony DCR-TRV25? Jeff
  5. Thanks alot james. That helped answer a few questions. I'm still going to do a little more research on UW photography before I make the big purchase but I'm getting a little closer BTW I'm originally from Crystal Beach if you've found that little place accross the Galveston Ferry I also checked out your photos of flower reef and thought they were great. As soon as I get a setup I'll send ya some pics. Thanks again. Jeff:cool:
  6. Little advice please Hi all, Hope ya don't mind a newbie posting in, but I was hoping I might gleam a little information from you more advanced UW photographers. I've been researching for a few months looking to spend about $1500-$2500 on a decent set up. I was leaning towards video but after checking up the resolutions offered I am now leaning towards digital stills. As of this moment I believe I want to buy a Nikon CP 5000 and an Ikelite 6190 to house it in. I"m unsure which strobe lighting setup would be best and which filters if any I should use. Also from the things I've read, I think I should attach a fisheye 19mm wide angle lens. Any comments, criticism, or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jeff in hawaii
