    Glad you like it. I haven't been to most of them and plan to visit them someday.

    I'm going back through some photos and trying to post a few... I keep getting a "security warning" from the site and to try again so I guess I'll try again.

    For those wondering here are two photos from ~60'... one with and one without the flash. Overall this is pretty accurate if you were ever curious.

    I personally have a Sony a65 but they aren't in production any more. The lens is a Sigma 3.5 constant aperture 10-20mm rectilinear which has been great for lower light. The body, lens, and housing all had to be modified to work/fit/etc.

    Ultimately depends if you want to shoot wide angle, fisheye, or macro because you really only get to pick one without a significant cost increase.

    acharpenter... this is the species of hermit my mantis buried alive because it was too big and then ate it later. Found one on a night dive.
