Hi Scott,

Thanks for the IDs. I moved up from the Oly C3000 to the Fuji E900 a few months back. I got the Ike housing b/c it was rated for 200ft and is about the cheapest Ike housing around at only $300. The camera was only about $325. All in all, it's a good rig at a pretty cheap price. The 9MP allows for some amazing cropping.

No strobes yet. I really want more light but I hate the expense and size increases that come along with strobes. As you see, it does decent for macro with the existing strobe.

I really want to get better at doing natural light wide angle of some of the local wrecks & stuff. I figure I'll drop to ISO 800, use raw to get the higher dynamic range, and go black & white on the output. Haven't found enough vis to give it a decent shot yet, but the idea has been rolling around in my head...

Ross
