Hi, Does anyone know a good place/shop where I can ask about compatibility between flash, arms, housing, additional lenses. and filters. Thinking to upgrade my current camera to Canon G9 but wanting to use my Inon lenses + D2000 flash etc. if possible but never bought any photography equipment in UK and no idea where I can ask these questions.

www.camerasunderwater.co.uk would be a good place to start, failing that, ask on some of the underwater photo formus / sites - wetpixel , digideep etc. not sure which is the in-vogue one at the moment though.

Hi Yoko,
You probably know already, but unfortunately the Canon G9 doesn't take an adaptor to fit any of Inon's wide angle lenses with it which is a real shame :(. However, of course your Inon D2000 flash will still work nicely (great choice of strobe!), I would stick with one of the Canon Powershot's older range like the 570 IS which can take all of your existing kit, but of course, am not sure what kit you are shooting with at the moment. If you need any impartial advice, then feel free to ask away. Best of luck and happy snapping! Maria

Hi Yoko,
if your Inon lenses have threads then you can use them on the G-9 Ikelite housing!
