I've been using a small Canon Digital Ixus camera with underwater housing for my diving photos, but now own a rather tasty Canon 30D digital SLR camera, and was wondering how much housings can be purchased for?

I've found one, but at nearly a thousand pound, thats not something i'll even consider.

The other question is, if i can get a housing for cheaper, what lens would it allow use of, and what about clip-on flash units?

Cheers,

Adam

I guess that it will cost you more or less such ammount (or much more). I think the popular choices would be between Ikelite, Hugyfot, Subal and Seacam. Probably you will find more, but I think that those would be the easiest to buy. I think that Ikelite will be the most price reasonable, because you will have to pay for the others from x1.5 to more than x2 more than Ikelite. If you are not looking for a professional set with depth rating like 100m (Ikelite is limited to 60m), I think that Ikelite will be the best choice. Please consider also that if you want to make a good photos, you should invest in a good strobe and this is a cost of approx. 1000USD per piece and better to have two... If you choose the housing, you may have to but the strobe from the same manufacturer and the strobe prices usually follow the price of housings... Anyhow, I have Canon 5D with Ikelite housing and two Ikelite DS125 storbes. If you are interested to see the photo quality, please inform, so I will send you a link to some I made with this equipment.
