  2. Here is my first attempt at an underwater video with an SLR I did not use a red filter as I was shooting both video and stills, I need to figure out how this would work for both. I do shoot in RAW so if there is a way to do this please share! Setup: - 5D Mark II - Sigma 15mm FE 2.8 - Ikelite Housing - 8" Ikelite Dome - 1 X Sea&Sea YS-D1 Strobe - Sola 800 Photo This is a link to some of the still photography I did http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=48308 Viewed best with a good sound system cranked and in HD! [vimeohd]52645702[/vimeohd] https://vimeo.com/52645702 This was my first attempt with a GoPRO and no LCD shot last year [vimeohd]26882598[/vimeohd] https://vimeo.com/26882598
  3. Thanks Everyone for the compliments, I'm totally addicted now!
  4. Hi Everyone, I would like to share my first attempt at underwater photography. I just got back from 11 Days on Cozumel where I stayed at the Iberostar Resort / Dressel Divers. I also shot video which I am still sorting through and will post the result when it is done. I learned a lot from this adventure including: - Starting out shooting in Manual / Manual Strobe equates to about 20% more air consumption (Thankfully not an issue for me as I usually finish a dive with 1500 PSI) - I want a second strobe - The need to really extend the arms out on the strobe for WA to avoid Backscatter - Diving in a recreational group can make it difficult to spend the time to get the results I wanted - Minor scratches on the outside of the dome are not an issue, however dust inside the dome is very bad at large apertures - What settings on the 5D make life easier and more difficult! I shot all images in full Manual both Camera & Strobe and RAW format Setup: - 5D Mark II - Sigma 15mm FE 2.8 - Ikelite Housing - 8" Ikelite Dome - 1 X Sea&Sea YS-D1 Strobe - Sola 800 Photo Below are a few photos, if you would like to see more in a slideshow fashion you can check them out @ frameamoment.com/underwater/ I would like to thank my Fiancé and Best Dive Buddy for her help and allowing me to spend a small fortune on Gear. Any comments / critique are welcome
  5. I've ordered: 1 X YS-D1 1 X SOLA Photo 600 Sync Cord I'm now trying to get a hold of appropriate arms I am going to take your advice and learn with just 1 manual strobe and will add a second in the future Thanks
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm looking for some help / suggestions on my new setup. I have previously done professional photography topside (Weddings, Calendars etc..) but am completely new to underwater. I do have a desire to do both video and stills but to start I think I will be focusing on stills. I also plan on mostly wide angle to start and eventually macro. Most of my diving is in tropical waters, I visit Cozumel a couple of time a year. Currently I Have: - Canon 5DMKII - Sigma 15mm FE 2.8 - Ikelite dSLR Housing #6871.02 - Ikelite 8" Dome #5510.45 - Ikelite Port Body #5510.11 - Ikelite Dual Tray Considering: - Dual S&S YS-D1 Strobes - Ikelite #4118.2 Two Strobe Sync Cable - Ikelite 1 Inch Ball Adapter for Quick Release Handle #9571.3 - Arms ??? 1. Will this setup be fully compatible (I understand TTL will not work) and functional? 2. I have no idea which arms to look at Please help 3. Have I missed any pieces / parts to make this setup function? Please make any suggestions / alternatives.
