  1. Does anybody know any substantial differences between the 6" and 8"? I'm deciding which to get. The lens I have - Nikon 20mm f/1.8 - fits both. I'm thinking the only differences would be half in / half out shots and buoyancy. Anybody have any experience using either or both? Thanks, Thomas
  2. Also, since below a certain depth is just blue light, should I worry about using some filter, or just deal with that after the fact in post?
  3. Thanks for the reply, Stoo. Yeah, I've looked at the Ikelite compatibility chart, and have asked them about it too. They said either will work for both of those lenses, but online it says the 6" lens hood may have to be removed to prevent vignetting. I was just curious to see people's experience with either, particularly with edge sharpness and half in / half out photos. I'm wondering if the 8" is worth the few hundred extra bucks. Yeah yeah, tough life, I know
  4. I'll be spending my winter working on the Palmyra Atoll in the South Pacific and am picking out the gear I need. I shoot with a Nikon D750. 1) Housing: I don't have an unlimited budget so I'll likely be getting the Ikelite housing for the D750. 2) Lens Port: I'll be shooting primarily with the Nikon 20mm f/1.8, maybe also with the 35-80mm. Should I get the 6" or 8" dome? Anybody have experience comparing these? 3) Strobes: I'll be snorkeling, so I'm thinking I'm not going to get strobes. I may get an Ikelite Gamma II dive light with attachment for the housing. Comments? Questions? Suggestions? Thanks for any advice you can give.
  5. Hi, I'm Thomas from Maryland. Shoot with a Nikon D750. Still in the faze of choosing which housing and gear to get. I'll be spending my winter on the Palmyra Atoll, so I want to be sure I have the gear to take good photos while I'm there.
