Nice Shot and Thanks for posting.

Hello Eric,

It seems you do get around (I remember your Kilimanjaro pics/story quite well)....I wish I could have done as much traveling as you have in the last couple of years...quite impressive!

Thanks for posting the underwater pics and the shot of the housing. I think that posts such as yours that show the cameras in use in more unusual circumstances (rather than a shot of a cat on a couch) are refreshing.

You say strobes, are they really? Or are they constant lights?

Regards,

Steadman

Hey, guys - the Canon D60 is a perfect fit in UK Germany's Canon
D30 housing (except that the new on/off button can't be turned
while in the housing).

I've been underwater with it for six dives now, and... it rocks! I
don't have anything jaw-dropping yet, but you can see the images at:

(images on and after April 3rd were taken with the D60)

I'll embed an example here, taken with two Ikelite DS125 strobes
and a Sigma 14mm lens at 1/80 F9 ISO100. It may be a bit soft
around the edges from the dome port.
