I have done some research and am looking for some helpful feed back. I am going with Ikelite primarily because of pricing I can get on it.
I have chosen the following camera gear.
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon EF 17-40mm F/4L USM
Sigma Fisheye 15mm F/2.8 Canon EOS Lens
*** I will be getting a macro lens later this year
This is what I understand I will need housing/strobe wise ... please let me know if I am wrong or if there is a better suggestion. I'm making a hefty investment and don't want to make a mistake.
Camera Body (Canon 5D Mark II):
Ikelite Housing #6871.02
Canon Lens 17-40mm USM Modular - 8" Dome
— 5510.45 8" dome assembly
— 5510.24 port body (17-40 canon)
— 5510.11 port body (Sigma Fisheye 15 / Canon 35mm F2.8 Prime)
#3945.01 DS161 Movie Substrobe
- #4061 DS161 Substrobe w/diffuser
- #4066.1 Smart Charger
- #4086.61 Ball Socket Arm
- #4103.51 Ikelite Digital TTL Sync Cord
After getting the gear it will be a matter of playing with lighting underwater. SO much different that using lights and bounce lighting above the surface.

I believe the Ikelite housings come with the focus gears, at least mine did for my Nikon D90. I know the guys at Bluewater Photo ((310) 633-5052) have some Ikelite dSLR packages that include strobes and ports. They know their stuff.
Best of luck,
