Hi,

I am new to underwater photography and have decide on the Sony NA-NEX5N as a good camera for this. I have purposely stayed away from a DSLR as I am avoiding size and weight (air travel weight restrictions).

My question is in regards to a good setup for this camera, specifically lens and strobes. For now I am considering the Sony E18-55mm as a good general purpose lens and potentially the Sony E16mm for wide angle.

Does anyone have recommendations for a good setup, port sizes, strobes, housing etc

Thanks
Carlos

happy diving :D

I have the NEX-5 and it is quite a nice little camera. I would add the new 30 mm macro lens to the mix since if you are going to shoot macro this is the lens for it. Strobes and housings are a matter of budget and preference; I like Inon and Sea and Sea strobes.

Thanks for the feedback Bill I will definitely look at the 30mm macro lens.
