  • Forget about tray and lights.  Just get a camera with housing.

  • i wouldnt mind 2nd hand, as im just a newbie... dun need a very high end stuffs for now. shall long as i can get those reasonably good macro shots of them Costesella sp (Shaun The Sheep,Nudi) im happy enuf...

    For that type of shots.. you have go beyond just the housing and camera. The easiest setup I can think of is the TG-4 and OEM Olympus housing plus a simple video light / torch (white light) with improvised diffuser, hand held.

    Have to agree with this, especially if you're looking at really macro stuff.
    Right now TG-4 is $498, Olympus housing is $398... that's less than 1k.

    Buy it... try it... if you don't like it... sell it to me. hahaha

    I use +10 only. :D 
    Tried one dive with another stacked +10 and was quite fun, but overall i think not as good as a single +20

    Photos wise I'm easily contented.. most important I like can already. haha
