  1. I have a canon SL2 ikelite housing with a canon 15mm lens. I love doing split shots, and I'm able to get them with calm water, however I would love for it to be a bit easier to capture in rougher water. After seeing what my friends Gopro dome port can handle in rougher water, I was a bit jealous. I don't really want to deal with the size of the full size 8" dome port. Just wondering if the compact version will give me the same ease split shot photography, or, is the small size going to make it relatively similar to the 6" dome. Should I just be purchasing a wider than 15mm lens? Anyone use the compact dome and the standard 8" dome that can weigh in? Would I be better of with a precision 5" half globe dome port? Thanks!
  2. Anyone have some ikelite ball arms for sale?
  3. I use an ikelite for canon sl2 with no strobes, which is relatively large, but still very attachable to my body. A video I watched on youtube gave me the idea. Just was wondering if anyone had any good ideas.
  4. See having it on a lanyard is so wobbly. I was hoping for something that stays put on either my leg or bicep that causes the camera to move with me, not move with a delay and with the opposite direction due to interia. May have to give this a try: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32916771613.html?spm=2114.search0204.3.109.79fd75fbAzyh7F&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_3_10065_10130_10068_10547_319_10546_317_10548_10545_10696_10084_453_454_10083_10618_10307_537_536_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103%2Csearchweb201603_60%2CppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=71e3ab57-07df-439c-a09a-33dd65751307-15&algo_pvid=71e3ab57-07df-439c-a09a-33dd65751307&transAbTest=ae803_4 I'm a freediver by the way.
  5. Hey all, Does anyone have tips for attaching their camera to their person. As in to their weight belt or to their arm/thigh. I am looking for something that will hold a medium sized housing tightly to my body, but is also quick release. I've thought of harnesses or just velcro straps, but just wondering if anyone has a nice DYI they recommend. This could work I guess: https://www.amazon.com/TacDraw-Camera-Belt-Metal-Holster/dp/B012BCDYXY/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?keywords=camera+holster&qid=1561881283&s=gateway&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1 Thanks, Michael
  6. haha yes it was! Fun area! Good kayaking and even some emus!
  7. I did my own self guided experience and Bird's.
  8. Yes no strobe! I did an Airbnb with friends
  9. Nice shots. I would try bumping up the contrast and clarity in a few of these shots to see where that gets me. The top two lack a little definition in my opinion. That or play with the dehaze tool in lightroom as well.
  10. Awesome time out there. Truly recommend the experience to any and everyone! Awesome photography and wildlife interactions. These animals are truly not what I expected. I thought they would be slow and relatively boring to watch. No, they are full of personality and beauty and even seek interactions. Some of my highlights. Canon SL2, Canon 15mm f2.8, Ikelite housing. My lens' focus gears promptly failed right after these shots, I was so lucky it worked during the interactions. The area is also fantastic. A real old Florida vibe, with some great restaurants. We rented a boat and saw a ton of dolphins and manatees as well. I went out with Birds Underwater and they were nothing but professional and educational.

  11. Just scored an Ikelite DS50 for a pretty good price, but it came with a Slave trigger instead of a proper, straight to camera sync cable. Looking for a used single cable to link from an ikelite bulkhead to the strobe! Thanks! Michael
