I've got an S500 and the underwater housing. So far, the pics are OK. I'm assuming a wide angle lense and strobe and more skill would improve the picture - please excuse the pun! So, questions are:

1. Does anyone have recommendations for a strobe and lense that are compatible with this camera?

2. Should I invest anymore in this setup or start anew with a more fancy camera? For the reasonably forseeable future, I see my self striving to be a good intermediate photographer, nothing more. I got the S500 as a portable topside camera and it's great for that. The underwater housing was a simple addition to get into underwater photo, but I'm not sure I should stick with it long term.

3. Thinking into the future about possibly upgrading cameras, is there a lense/strobe combo I could get myself into now that could be compatible with a better camera later?

Thanks for any reommendations.
