  1. Great and informative video. I wish I'd have bought a housing for my 50d when they still made them. Deciding on whether to go with the new 7d MkII and save for a housing, or the Olympus mirrorless rig. I really want to upgrade from the 50d anyway. Decisions…decisions…

  2. Great video very informative. I was wondering what your opinion is on the SEALIFE cameras available for purchase, where would you place them in terms of quality when compared to the other items you've mentioned?

  3. Nicely done Tony! I use both an Ikelite and a Sea&Sea housing for my 6D, while the sea and sea housing is black aluminum it has a moisture alarm that lets you know if it is taking water. Someone asked if IS or VR works underwater and the answer to that is YES, specially when using scuba and you cannot help but gain and loose buoyancy as you breathe. I would say that using fins is mandatory when using a DSLR with a housing and strobes.

  4. just want to tell you myself…that im in the search and reseach on getting into underwater photography – i have seen a couple of videos, read thisng hear and there, even look for classes around me that others underwater photographers with experience can teach me (all very expensive btw)…..but, out of all this things, this video has been the most informative and complete to the point one. so thanks

  5. I use Nikon primarely but I would never buy the AW1 bcuz it has no video stabilisation built in!
    almost all of the video cameras in phones use stabilisation that makes video smooth but not in the AW1 that is soo choppy when u walk and film!!!!!!

  6. I've been scrolling through your videos for hours trying to soak up as much information as I can. Thanks for going into so much detail in everything that you do. I'll definitely be purchasing your book, but after that it's penny pinching time until I can find an Ikelite.
