  1. gentlemen & ladies, i am currently using a canon A620 in a canon housing also for my underwater photography. i am planning to get myself a FANTASEA housing for my canon 400D which is due to release this march. so before i jump into it i would like to hear from 350d fantasea housing users on how you find this housing. how are the controls with this housing? i also plan to get the fantasea housing for the 580ex flash in addition to my sea&sea slave strobe. i would appreciate any feedback from users and people who have at least seen this housing thanks in advance. edwin
  2. Richard, i'm glad to know that you had a splendid time here in the Philippines. i am from cebu city a neighboring island of bohol and is into underwater photography just recently. i started with my pentax optio S5i with pentax housing and moved up to a canon A620 now with a canon housing and a sea master strobe. hopefully i can afford to get myself a housing for my 20d soon. edwin
  3. a shot of a stingray about 80ft below, this fellow is kind a hard to follow and quite far from me for my strobe to reach. i wish i had a housing for my 20d so i can shoot in burst underwater. i used a pentax optio S5i with pentax housing. a shot of my buddy at 70ft, i like the backlighting effect... it was unintentional though. i would love to hear some tips on shooting with p&s camera specialy with subjects 5 to 10ft away.
  4. heres a couple of shots i got this afternoon practicing underwater photography with this strobe and my pentax optioS5i
  5. hi Julian, here is a shot with this strobe... i am new to underwater photography i'm still learning. i think its good enough considering its price. i am using a point & shoot pentax optioS5i digicam
  6. this flash is considerably good for its price. i am new to underwater photography and i'm still learning. some of my first few underwater shots with this flash using my pentax optioS5i
  7. hi Ted, i suggest you go for the canon lenses less headache in future body compatibility... sigma has the reputation on not being compatible with newer canon slr bodies... or canon purposely making sigma not compatible with new canon bodies. i hope you'll enjoy your diving trips here in Cebu Philippines... dont miss to dive in Balikasag island near Panglao Bohol, you will definitely like it there... its my personal favorite... also if you have enough time, check out Malapasqua island. edwin cebu city Phils.
  8. i should have psoted it here earlier but i somehow did not notice this thread so i posted it in another thread... SL960D Underwater Strobe with Variable Power Control for Digital and Film Cameras - Rated up to 200'... i know i'm supposed to ask for feedback from users of this strobe before buying it, but i just clicked on the checkout button at B&Hphoto and i am eagerly waiting for this strobe to arrive so i can use it with my pentax optio S5i with pentax housing. does anybody have any experience with this strobe? i cant seem to find much reviews on this particular model. i'd like to know so i'll know what to expect from this strobe. at least your feedback will either make me more excited while waiting for it and at least it will also help me not to expect so much from it before i use it if ever it has flaws. thanks all in advance. edwin

  10. oh, i thought that a waterhousing manufacturer have some sort of warranty to their product from being defective. and when it is defective i thought they should also include in the warranty the damaged camera inside the housing.
  11. hi everyone, i'm about to buy my first waterhousing. i am just wondering what warranties come with it. does the manufacturer of the housing include your damaged camera in the warranty when the housing that you got is defective? i can find anything mentioned in B&H when you buy one from them. what will a replacement of a defective housing for when your camera has been damaged with water already. has anyone had any experience claiming a warranty for their equipment? thanks in advance to all. edwin
  12. that hard to understand formula (for me) must be the reason why those zoom lenses with fixed aperture at f2.8 are so expensive because they have a lot of mathematics in there hahaha
  13. digital F-stops and film f-stops are the same. this is a mechanical part of a camera. a lens that has a specs of 7.1mm-21.3mm f2.8-4.9 means at 7.1mm your maximum aperture (wide open) is f2.8 and when you fully zoom out at 21.3mm your maximum aperture at that focal length is f4.9. meaning if you are using the widest angle of your zoom lens 7.1mm, and choose to use the bigest aperture you get the limit of 2.8 and the smallest limit of f8, while if you zoom it all the way to 21.3mm your biggest aperture will only be f4.9 and not 2.8... but of course you still can get the smallest limit of f8. take note: the smaller the number the bigger the aperture, the bigger the number the smaller the aperture. which means everytime you use a bigger number you are only allowing a small amount of light to your sensor or film for that matter. hope this helps you clear up the confusion edwin

    hi to all, i just registered in this fourum and have to shoot a question right away. i am not new to photography perse but underwater... i still have to try i have a canon 20d, canon 350d and a pentax optio S5i digital cameras. among the three, the cheapest waterhousing that i can get is for the P&S pentax. the 20d and 350d housing are expensive and wouldnt want to touch them as of the moment since i dont know what underwater photography is about. my question: is the pentax Optio S5i pocket camera good enough for just a recreational dive? will it give me good quality pictures assuming the conditions underwater is good (bluewater, btw, i'm in the Philippines with great dive spots)? i am planning to use my P&S cam first before i jump into the more expensive toys. thank you very much and Happy new Year to All!!! edwin
