I am asking for a lot of help here, and not giving much back. Hopefully in the future I will be able to put more in.
Still trying to decide on which camera to go for, I am looking into the Canon ID MK II may be the favorite so far. The reason for this is canon is offering me it for 3300â‚¬ including the 550EX flash for free. Which seems a very competative deal.
The only thing that puts me of the D70, is if I spend 1000â‚¬ on a camera plus 2500â‚¬ on a underwater case, and decide I want better next year. It is a lot to throw away.
I am a little confused on how lenses and flashes connect to the camera underwater.
I know that there are different ports for different lenses. Which seems simple enought. But how does one get around the fact you never know what type of picture you are going to take underwater until you get to it. Has anyone else addressed this, if they find themselves suddenly wanting to take a macro photo? Are there any lenses that are good at everything? or is it just tuff luck. Preperation is the key before you dive.
As i understand it, I can put the 550EX in a subal case and connect it to the subal camera case. How to slave flashes work? Or do they simply trigger from the light of the other flash.
Also, does anyone know a good UK/Ireland provider for underwater housing, that is competative and reliable for deliveries and service?
