  1. I'm a newcomer to digital u/w and have bought a ds 50/cannon g-2 setup. An aiming light definitely helps, but I do not like the attachment that Ikelite has for it's mini c light. The light is way too big and cumbersome for an aiming light. The dilemma is that most or all of the really small uw lights do not use a flip type switch. I'm going to experiment with attaching a small (aa batt size) aiming light to the strobe. Let me know if you find a solution that works for you.

  2. I (together with some friends from Mexico) are also putting together a trip to the La Paz/Cabo Pulmo area for early Oct. I'd appreciate a trip report with any recommendations. Thanks. Also, if you like Mexico/Baja diving you should check out the San Carlos area; its an easy half day drive from Tucson and has some nice diving during the warm water season.

  3. Thanks for the thoughtful replies. I was looking at a pointer with an easy to use on/off switch so you could aim the strobe then turn off the pointer. I am concerned however about possible harm from the laser light and will probably avoid a pointer for now. The point about an aiming light helping autofocus was also good; I've already noticed a problem focusing in low light.

  4. I'm sure I'm not the only aging babyboomer out there who has trouble seeing the LCD details on his/her digital cam underwater. I've thought about some bi-focal type mask that would let me see the LCD more clearly yet not impair distance vision. Any good tips out there. I'm new to digital u/w and have just bought a Cannon G2 with Ike housing and DS 50 strobe. Thanks.
